Stems & Silhouettes

This is my favorite Stampin’ Up! wheel, and I thought of it (again) when I saw the picture for Kristina Werner’s color inspiration challenge this week (#35). I used the layout of SCS sketch challenge 207 for this quick and simple card.

All stamped images were clear embossed on this card. Two outline images from the Wonderful You set were stamped with VersaMark ink on the Baja Breeze 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ card. I inked up the jumbo wheel with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and rolled it onto a 3″ x 3″ piece of Close to Cocoa card stock, which was matted with Chocolate Chip card stock.

The felt flowers were embellished with So Saffron brads and adhered to the card with mini glue dots or dimensionals. The little tabs of So Saffron ribbon are held into place with Sticky Strip.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I like the color combination, the felt flowers/brads combo, and the way you used the ribbon.
