Welcome to week 3 of Colour Creations Blog Hop for 2024 - 25! This week we are bringing back a lovely pink colour - Pretty In Pink!

I have gone super simple this week! I know you would have thought after all that busy and craziness of the last few weeks I would keep it going with the fancy folds but no this week I am going simple!

We all need a quick card to make and this one is as quick as they come. So quick I made 6! You can make them as a set and give away or keep them for yourself to use when you need a card!

Ok, you are asking "Why, Sharon, why did you make 6?" Well there are 6 sentiments with the Thoughtful Wishes stamp set of course so I just had to. The card design is a quick CASE (copy and share everything) of a 2020 poppy card by Brian King)

My card base is Pretty In Pink card base and then unlike Brian I have a layer of Designer Series Paper. I have used the 4 designs of the InColor 2024-26 DSP and then as I needed another 2 to complete my 6 because of the 6 sentiments I went looking and I found 2 more with the Lilly Pond Lane DSP.

Here are the 4 InColor designs and the sentiments I used and of course the piece of DSP left over I adhered to the envelope flap so each card has their own envelope.

Here are the 2 Lilly Pond Lane designs that are on the back of the some really cute duck and pond scenes. For the sentiments I have stamped them in Basic Gray and cut them out using either the Deckled Rectangle or Circle Dies.
For the focal point of the card I have stamped the little stamp of 5 flowers over and over again in a row and coloured them using the Stampin' Blends. I have used Light and Dark Pretty In Pink on the flower petals and Light Pretty Peacock and Light Lost Lagoon on the leaves. Then the strip of flowers was layered on a piece of Basic Black and adhered to the center of the card front before adhering the sentiments on dimensionals.

There you have it 6 super quick cards that can be given as a gift set or kept to be used when you need to let someone know you are thinking of them.

When you're onto a good thing...! Such a great idea, Sharon, to make not one but six of these sweet cards. I love the combination of Pretty In Pink, Pretty Peacock and Lost Lagoon!

I love that you even thought to make six cards, to use every sentiment in the stamp set! They are all so pretty; Pretty in Pink really is a gorgeous colour. Perfect for delicate flowers, and showcasing all those beautiful patterned papers.

Oh my goodness, these are adorable, Sharon. So, so pretty in Pretty in Pink and I love how you had to make six, one for each sentiment in the set - I so get you!!!

Ros said...

I love how each card is a tiny bit different. They are very sweet and the colour is perfect for these cards.

Michele Taylor said...

Firstly I wanted to scream ,"What no fancy fold!" and then I see that while it might be a 'simple' design, you made SIX of them!!! Your cards are beautiful Sharon and I love that they are all slightly different.

These are simply lovely Sharon, and such a good idea to make a set with all the sentiments.
