You're In My Heart Today

Good morning, friends! While looking for stamp sets to color recently, I came upon the Flora Background from Simon Says Stamp.

You're In My Heart Today Card

This background reminds me of stained glass and I thought it would be beautiful with a bit of coloring. So I spent a little time each day last weekend using Copics to give this background a little life.

Once the whole square was done, I die cut a panel using a Nesting Basics: Rectangle die and matted it with a piece of black cardstock. Next, I vertically stamped a greeting from Sentiment Staples: Thinking Of You along one side of a Soft Stone card base.

I mounted the floral panel to the card front with foam tape and then embellished all of the flower center areas (the round, yellow bits) with Glossy Accents to give a touch of shine to the pattern. The best part? I still have a nice, big strip of the colorful pattern to use on a card that I'll share in the next day or two.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you're having a wonderful week! I'm going to choose flooring for our new basement guest suite/family room today. Wish me luck!

Hi Lizzie! Boy, this background stamp has so many possibilities. Your project turned out beautiful! You seem to be enjoying the coloring challenge and I’m enjoying your designs. Relaxing therapy, in between working on your home I would think. I look forward to your next post & Have a great weekend. 😊
