Color Hues Challenge #57 | I Am So Very Grateful

  PRODUCT LINKS BELOW CONTAIN COMPENSATED AFFILIATE LINKS AT NO COST 
 
It's time for a new challenge over on the Color Hues Challenge Blog! 
We are challenging you to use Coral & Sage!
 
Here's my take...
 
I pulled out the NEW Layered Peony Stencil Set from Gina K. Designs Lovely Notes card kit (This kit was released on 1/17/23 and has since sold out, the kit will be broken up and all the items will be available individually with the next kit release). 

I started off with a piece of layering weight card stock and stenciled the Peony with Peach Bellini and Coral Reef ink. For the leaves I used Layering Spruce Light and Dark. Next I fussy cut in out and added some gold splatters. For a sentiment I used one from the Fresh Florals stamp set that was also included in the kit.
 
Card Measurements:
Coral Reef A2 Top Fold Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2")
Gold Mat: 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" - Master Layout 1
White Panel: 3 3/4" x 5" - Master Layout 1

How about a little inspiration?! I created 4 cards to share with you today but I will be back with more! Along with the kit I used a few other basic supplies that I will link below but that is totally optional as the kit has plenty of supplies!
 
The first thing you may notice is my card size. These are called "Tall & Skinny" cards and measure 5 1/2"H x 3 1/2" W. For my samples I used my own card stock so I could create top fold cards as it appears in the photos better but you can easily trim your card blanks to 3 1/2" wide if you would like to give these a try. They will fit in the envelopes provided. It's always fun to try something different.

Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps | Feed Me Tacos

  PRODUCT LINKS BELOW CONTAIN COMPENSATED AFFILIATE LINKS AT NO COST

Hello Sweet Friends!
 
Today I'm back with another card featuring Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps NEW Feed Me Tacos stamp set from the January 2023 Release. This is such a cute set!
 
I stamped some of the fun images with alchol friendly ink and used copic markers to color before cutting them out with the coordinating die set. I then took the images and created a little scene. I then added one of the sentiments along with a sub sentiment from the Love Wordfetti stamp set. The finished card size is a 4" x 4" square and will fit into a standard A2 envelope unless you choose to use a square envelope.
 
Card Measurements:
White Square Card Base: 4" x 4"
Red Stitched Mat: 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
White Stitched Circle: 2 3/8"
Black Sentiment Strip: 1" x 1/4"
