Fab Friday Color Challenge #FabFri158: Healing Hugs

Good morning!

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend, ours was full of lots of sports and activities as usual but I was able to sneak away for a little bit of crafting fun and decided to play along with this weeks Fab Friday color challenge.  As soon as I saw these colors I knew this had to been a floral card (it would also help get me out of the snow and rain funk we've been having) so I decided to use the Healing Hugs stamp set, which had just arrived in my last order so I hadn't had a chance to ink it up yet.  I also decided to stick with the #simplestamping these and let the stamps be the stars.

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock as a mat for the Whisper White cardfront.  On the card front I started by stamping the open leaf image several times in the bottom left corner with Mossy Meadow ink and then used my Blender pen to color in the image so get different levels of color in the leaf.  I also stamped the cross stitch image using Crumb Cake ink and the greeting was stamped in Calypso Coral.

For the flower I started by inking the whole stamp with Petal Pink ink and then used a sponge to add little hints of Calypso Coral here and there.  After stamping I cut the flower out with Paper Snips and attached it to the cardfront with dimensionals.  To finish off the card I added some Petal Pink pears from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls and then a double bow tied with Calypso Coral 1/8" Sheer Ribbon.

This stamp is one of the new ones in the DistINKive line so there is some great texture in the flower image that is so much better when you look at it up close. It's also great to have get well cards in your stash  and ready to go for when you find out someone is under the weather, and this will certainly brighten someone's day!
