Calypso Coral Field Flowers

Today's card is for the Free for All Friday on Splitcoaststampers. They challenged us to use bold happy colors and my favorite right now is Calypso Coral. I love oranges!!

          Stamps: Field Flowers 
          Paper: Chocolate Chip, Calypso Coral, Naturals White 
          Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Bashful Blue 
          Accessories: Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder, Finishing Touches Edgelits,
                    Victoria Crocheted Lace, Sponge, Post-it note, Stamp-a-majig 
          Techniques: Sponging, 2-step stamping 

The main panel is Naturals White card stock. To make the main image panel on this card, I first stamped the leaves in Old Olive. Then I stamped the solid flower image in Pumpkin Pie and used a stamp-a-majig for placement to stamp the line flower image in Calypso Coral. The "with love" is stamped in Chocolate Chip. All stamps used on this card are from the Field Flowers set. After the panel was stamped, I covered about 1/4" of all four edges with post-it notes and sponged the image with Bashful Blue ink to create the blue rectangle around the flower.

The base is Chocolate Chip cardstock and the card front panel is Calypso Coral embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper folder and sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. I cut a strip of Naturals White cardstock with one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits and layered it with a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock and a piece of Victoria Crocheted Lace ribbon. I matted the flower image panel with Chocolate Chip card stock and attached it to the card with Dimensionals.

Everything used to create this card is available from Stampin' Up! If you would like to purchase Stampin' Up products, please visit my business website at


  1. Very pretty, love the color combo, your stamp image & sponging on the embossing. Very nice card!

  2. I like this card, and love how you have a slight blue area sponged behind the flowers.
