Celebrate Sunflowers

Sometimes when Stampin’ Up!® introduces a new color it doesn’t quite grab me right away.  I always purchase all the new colors because that is just how I am but sometimes one or two of them sit for a long time.  I decided to embrace the new InColor called Magenta Madness and there is not better way to do this then to use Designer Series Paper (DSP) that has that color in it.  It softens it a bit and show me how well it goes with other colors.  To do this I used Flowers For Every Season DSP.  It has Magenta Madness in it but also has Bumblebee and Poppy Parade along with a couple of other pinks.

To make this card I first put the DSP along with some Magenta Madness cardstock on a Whisper White card base.  Then I stamped the sunflower and cut out the coordinating die in Magenta Madness.  I stamped the “Thanks A bunch” sentiment but used my Paper Snips to cut out “A bunch”.  It was a super easy card to make and it made me like Magenta Madness which means problem solved (now if I could just learn to love Melon Mambo.  I’ll save that for another day!).

Madelyn had a busy week last week.  She graduated from Pre-school and learned how to ride a bike without training wheels.  She is so grown up and he will be headed to Kindergarten this fall (if schools open, that is).  Let’s all hope for the world to open back up soon.

  1. This is such a lovely card. So funny because Magenta is the color that I have yet to embrace. You did a great job at it. Riding a bike at her age is a BIG deal!


  2. Brilliant way to ‘soften’ such a bright colour – use it with a coordinating DSP! Wow – Madelyn is getting so grown up! I know you’re so proud of her, and her accomplishments. Yay Madelyn!! 🙂
