You Are My Fave

I used this week’s sketch from CASE(e) this Sketch to create this cheery floral design. It definitely says "springtime" to me!

You Are My Fave-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Clear and Simple Stamps
The flowers are from the Clear and Simple Stamps Flower Buds stamp set. I die cut them from white cardstock using the matching dies, then stamped the flower images in bold pink and orange inks. They’re arranged at the edge of a round white panel, using foam tape for dimension. I tucked a pair of die cut leaves underneath the blooms to add a softer, contrasting color in the mix. The “you are my fave” sentiment comes from CSS’s All Wrapped Up set. I love the mix of fonts!

The sentiment panel is adhered over a pair of fishtail flag strips on a light pink card base. I matched the strips to the colors in the flowers to help tie everything together. A trio of clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finishes off the design. This is the first time I’ve used these clear sequins and I am in love! You’ll be seeing a lot more of these pretties on my designs . . .

Materials Used:
Flower Buds and All Wrapped Up stamp sets, Paint the Town Pink, Creamsicle Cardigan, and In the Limelight inks, I’m a Princess Pink, Paint the Town Pink, Creamsicle Cardigan, and A Blanc Check cardstock, Shapes: Circles and Flower Buds dies (Clear and Simple Stamps); Take Note 6x6 paper pad (Doodlebug Design); sparkling clear sequins (Pretty Pink Posh); foam tape
