Have Courage and Be Kind

Hi guys! Today I’m sharing another Pinkfresh Studios project that I made featuring the Leafy Branch and Simply Diamonds dies. I also used paper from the gorgeous, collaborative  paper pack from Pinkfresh and Altenew: Celebrate.

I selected a pretty floral pattern from the pad, cut it to 4 x 5 1/4 and used Pinkfresh’s Coral Reef ink pad and a finger dauber to lightly shade the border. Then I decided to use Metropolis and Licorice to splatter over the shaded area, just because I thought it would be pretty. I mounted it to a similarly colored paper from my stash, and adhered that to a card stock base.

I used the Simply Diamonds die on a sheet of Classic Crest 110 lb. paper just to make sure it was fairly sturdy and cut off the border. Then I pulled out my circle dies and cut a circle into the diamond pattern, and made a border for an additional circle that would go down in the middle for the sentiment.  

I decided on the Have Courage And Be Kind stamp from the You’ve Got This stamp set which I love and is probably my favorite sentiment right now. I lightly shaded the center of the circle cut out with Coral Reef using a blending brush, and went with Rocky Slope and Detail Black to stamp the sentiment. Then I used thin strips of foam tape on the diamond die cut to pop it up over the floral paper and sentiment.

The Leafy Branch die came out and was used on several kinds of paper so that I could look at them all on the card and decide which I liked best. In the end I used a silver specialty paper and a pinky/peachy Coral Reef color to layer together.

I finished with a few Essential: Jewels and some Nuvo drops for the leafy branch and was done.

I hope that this has inspired you to make something new today!

Thanks for coming by!
