Hey everyone, how is your week going? Mine has been busy in both good and not so good ways, but I am still trudging through it. I wanted to share another look at one of the 2018-2020 In Colors, Grapefruit Grove. Here are the measurements for today’s card:

  • Card base in Thick Very Vanilla cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • 2018-2020 In Color DSP cut at 2 1/2″ x 5″
  • Soft Suede cut at 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  • Very Vanilla cut at 4″ x 3″

Since I chose one of the Hostess Sets, Very Vintage, I wanted to use something soft and went with Grapefruit Grove. Back in the day one of my favorite color combos was peach and brown, so I went with Soft Suede to pair with it. I stamped the flowers in Soft Suede and colored just the roses with my Blender Pen and some Grapefruit Grove ink. Then I added some Wink of Stella to all the flower and when it dried, I adhered it to the Soft Suede. I adhered the DSP to the left side of the card base, then added the flower layers to the card base with some dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. I then pressed each side into the Grapefruit Grove ink pad to color just the edges so it would break up the Very Vanilla color. I added it to the card front with mini dimensionals, then added two of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls. I love how you can interchange all of our products between suites. I thought it needed one more little something, so I added a double bow of Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine with a mini glue dot and called it done. I love it! How about you?

Do you have any of these items on your wish list? If you do and haven’t purchased them yet, you can get them now by shopping at my online store. When you shop using Hostess Code X6VBJFJ4, I’ll send you a pack of handmade cards. If you spend $40.00 or more, I’ll include a new embellishment from the catalog. If this Hostess Set is on your wish list and want to purchase enough to get it for free, do not use the Hostess Code. Just complete your order without so that you can get the benefits. Either way, you’ll be getting some goodies in the mail.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great evening.
