Finding Joy with Play Date Cafe

I'm sneaking in another post before work tonight :)

This card is for The Play Date Cafe. I really loved the colors this week!

and here is my take

So I have to be upfront I cannot remember the names of the stamps I used but they are all Hero Arts. I'll update the post as soon as I make my way down to the car to get my crafty bag lol. Now for the creating . . .

I stamped my background on glossy card stock with versamark then smeared on some ripe persimmon distress ink.  I trimmed and layered it onto a blue panel. The flower was stamped twice, once on the glossy card stock and once on plain white. The plain white one I colored and trimmed out. I added it to the panel with dimensional adhesive.

The sentiment was stamped (very carefully :) with jet black archival ink. I added a bow of bakers twine and stardust stickles to finish.

Thanks for taking a look! I know I say that every post but I genuinely mean it :) I love reading your comments!!


  1. Oh I love this one Kelly! Gorgeous colours! I think I may have to get that background stamp as well!

  2. Simply gorgeous, Kelly! You really made these colors pop. The swirly background stamp is a must-have; just added it to my shopping list!

    Thanks a bunch for playing with us at THe PLay DAte Cafe!

  3. So pretty, Kelly! LOVE that gorgeous flower, and your background flourishes add just the right amount of movement! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!
