Today’s card is one that is very versatile, and looks great in any color combination.  This combination is a little different, but still pops.  I just adore Smoky Slate and Rich Razzleberry is my favorite “Rich” color.  The stamp set, “You’ve Got This” is my idea of a full card in one set. You have everything you need without having to utilize other sets as well.  That being said,  the background design is probably my favorite of any and I use it with quite a few different stamps.  What do you think?


You’ve Got This, 139575


The colors are not the greatest in this photograph, but the card is Smoky Slate with Rich Razzleberry as the highlight.  I stamped the background with Smoky Slate onto Smoky Slate.  It looks a lot darker doesn’t it?  The flower is stamped in Memento Black ink as is the greeting.

The trick to this card, or at least my idea of Easy Coloring, is to stamp it on scrap and then just swipe the marker back and forth.  It does not matter that you are coloring outside the lines since you are going to be cutting the flower out.  And I love the variegated look you get from the uneven coloring.  You can make it more or less variegated, whichever is your preference.

I used Rich Razzleberry on the flower petals and Pear Pizzazz on the stem and leaves.  The Touch of yellow ribbon is from some scraps I had in my ribbon bag.  I added it to help the flower center show a little better.  I cut out the flower and adhered it with dimensionals.  And there you have it, a pretty simple card to pull together.  I have used the exact same layout without the cut out flower and it looks great as well.  I usually do that with white card stock to stamp on though.
