Hello and welcome to this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge! This week we have a fun sketch for you to take part in and to inspire you. This week I picked the Amazing You stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies to use on my card today. Both of which you can get for free with a $150 order before taxes and shipping in my online store. I love both the stamp set and the thinlits sets, I am a sucker for sentiments and coloring and both the thinlits and stamp set delivers. Here’s a look at today’s card.

Tips & Tricks:
I started my card today by stamping the flowers three times in tuxedo black ink and set them aside to dry a little while before coloring. While I waited I stamped the sun burst image from the stamp set in Elegant Eggplant on the whisper white
cardstock and then stamped the flower one more time in lemon lime twist so that I would have some green leaves. I then stamped the you (in Elegant Eggplant) and are simply (in Pool Party) centered and below each other.
I attached some Calypso Coral Cardstock to a piece of the multipurpose adhesive sheets and ran it through the Big Shot twice with the Amazing die from Celebrate You Thinlits dies. Once this was done I stacked them one on top of each other and placed them below the stamped sentiment.
I then went back to the stamped flowers and colored them using the Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Light and dark markers. Then I cut each one out. Before placing them on the card I added a 1/2″ strip of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock to the side of the whisper white cardstock and right where the rays started, knowing that the flowers would cover up any unwanted stamping. I first attached the Pool Party flower and then the Calypso Coral one. I put the Pink Pirouette flower on a Stampin’ Dimensional and lined it up over the lemon lime flower that was stamped to get the leaves.
After this was complete I added my whisper white piece to a pool party mat (cut at 4 x 5 1/4) and attached this to the Calypso Coral cardbase.
To finish off the card I added three Rhinestones jewels close to the sentiment. And stamped the flowers on the flap of a whisper white medium envelope in Pool party, Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral and colored them with the matching Stampin’ Blends. I then added some leaves in Elegant Eggplant.
