Hello Darling for Creative Challenge Club (CCC01)

Hi Crafty Friends!  Today is a very special day!  Why, you ask?  Because it's opening day of sketch challenges for the Creative Challenge Club, and I am one of the Design Team Members!  I was honored to be invited to join such a creative group.

Myself and six of my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators (who are all AMAZING paper crafters!) will be bringing you beautiful handcrafted cards that we'll make with our featured sketch every Monday!  And you can play along by creating a card of your own and linking it to the site.  Just head over to Creative Challenge Club for all of the details!

Here's the first sketch CCC01.

And, here's my first Creative Challenge Club creation!

I saw this card so differently before I started to craft--a mixture of patterned papers and lots of stamping--but my first two attempts were just not working, so they went into the circular file.  It was only after I went to my go-to colors--Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss and Gold--that my hopes and dreams for this card started to come true.

For this Hello Darling Card, I embossed my sentiment using Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Heat embossing is the answer for stamping images and sentiments onto dark cardstock.

For my flowers, I used the Flower Flair Framelits Dies only, not the coordinating stamps.  I really liked the look without the stamped image, so I left them like that and simply curled the ends with my Bone Folder.  To me, it makes them stand out more.

Well, that's all for today, folks!  I hope that you like this card and will join me and my crafty friends over at Creative Challenge Club by sharing your creation there.

You will find all of the products I used to create this card below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store, or click any of the links below to go right to that item.
