Lotus Blossom Thank You

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Today's card is the last (BOO!) of Lotus Blossom week and it's another gorgeous card, if I do say so myself! Having used just one color for the other four creations, I've used 2 for today's card, Strawberry Slush and Blackberry Bliss, so you could say this card is berry-licious!

Card: Whisper White, folded base, panel and extra for stamping
Ink: Strawberry Slush, Blackberry Bliss and Crumb Cake
Markers: Strawberry Slush Stampin' Write (from 2013-2015 In Color pack) and Blackberry Bliss (from 2014-2016 In Color pack)
Stamp sets: Lotus Blossom, Hardwood and Painted Petals (sentiment).
Tools: Flower Medallion Punch (available separately or as part of the Petal Potpourri bundle) and Paper Snips

Stamp the step one Lotus Blossom stamp in Blackberry Bliss onto Whisper White. Complete the blossoms with Strawberry Slush ink, stamped off once. Fussy cut with Paper snips.
Stamp the Hardwood onto the panel in Crumb Cake. Punch with the Flower Medallion near an and and trim to even if need be. KEEP the punch out for another project! Attach panel to folded base card.
Ink the sentiment stamp with the Strawberry Slush marker, then color the "thank", top and bottom of the "you" with the Blackberry Bliss marker. Stamp in the aperture.
Attach the blossoms with Mini Glue Dots.

It's so hard for me to choose a favorite from the five very different cards I've created with a stamp set that's become a new favorite! Can you help me choose, please? Here's a reminder of the others (click on pix to be taken to the post for details)...

  4. Sheesh -0 what a question Em!! I do so love this latest card, but I think (as Mandy says) the 'You Are Amazing' one wins by a whisker :)
