SIP Challenge 93 – Coming Up Flowers!

Home / Blog / SIP Challenge 93 – Coming Up Flowers!

Another really nice day yesterday! Sunny and warm with just a little breeze! Today we are to have a very rainy morning and then spots of rain for the rest of the day, but still not cold! YAY! I stopped by the bank on the way to the Store in the morning and they were not helpful at all. I’m over it so I’ll be switching to a new bank as soon as this is cleared up. I had a pretty productive day when I got to the Store. Renee had her Christmas Card Club and my friend Sue stopped by, always nice to see her! I had a quick dinner with my Parents when I got home and then went over to get Heather so we could go and see Brian and Kim! It’s been ages since we have all hung out but it was like no time passed at all. Good friends! Lots of projects are on tap for today and Jim will be by later to work on the crafty project! Should be a great day! 😀

What makes it even better is it’s time for a new Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

That’s right! Just add some flowers to your project! I though that it might get Spring here a bit faster if we all do it together! LOL! I played with some of the new line of products from the latest Concord & 9th release. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. That pretty background is created using the Concord & 9th Floral Fill-In Patterned Paper and the Floral Fill-In Stencils. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Ballerina Pink for the first layer of the stencil and Bubblegum for the second layer and adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The flower in the upper right is from the Concord & 9th Fill-In Phrases Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in the same two colors. I cut it out with my Scissors and adhered it to the card with 3D Foam Squares. My big hello is cut out from a piece of Pink Vellum for the outline a piece of Black for the inside. I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere the black to the outline and then teeny dots of Multi-Matte Medium to adhered it to the card. The friend is from the Concord & 9th Say Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Licorice under the hello and the card is done! I love those Floral Fill-In Paper and Stencils, you can make your flowers any color that you want, such a cool idea!

  1. Love this one Justin. I especially like the double hello and, again, you enlightened me on some new products. First of all I didn’t know that vellum came in colors. Hey, I live in the North Country so we don’t get to see all this new stuff. Yup, you’re probably going to tell me it’s been around forever. I digress – anyway I hope Concord and 9th comes out with a lot more words with double dies. I really do love the look. Great card and so very “Spring” inspired. Have yourself a Wickedly Wonderful Wednesday my friend. Love & Hugs to you, XXOO 🙂

    1. Thank you Grace! I love the colored Vellum, I got some more at the Show on Saturday! LOL! I love the nice big word dies from C&9, good for quick cards! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  2. Yes, Justin, I too love the double​ “hello” dies. Such a pretty card, especially when all my spring flowers are blooming…
    Have​ a lovely Tuesday! Nancy B

    Grace, are you wishing a day ahead? I can barely keep track of the days without looking constantly at my calendar!

  4. Love your pretty card, Justin. The striped background with the pretty pink flowers and the licorice make a great card. Love the pink vellum and double hello. Today’s been beautiful here with sun, warm temps and a slight breeze. Loving it! Take care.

    1. Thank you HJ! I like the vellum behind the this die cut, gives it a little soft dimension! Glad that you are having such nice weather, send it this way please! 🙂

  5. I love this, beautiful. I love the fill in paper, do you like it?

    Anything to bring on Spring, another cold, gloomy, rainy day here with snow in the forecast. Depressing

    1. Thanks Linda! Yes, I do love that paper!! Such a cool idea!
