Stampin' Up! Friendly Hello ~ Casually Crafting Blog Hop

Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm taking part in a blog hop with the Casually Crafting Design Team!  We are an international group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who want to share our take on casual crafting.  We will share what we love with you monthly.  Be sure to check out the rests of the design team's projects using the links at the bottom of this post.

Isn't this a pretty flower photo!?  It's the inspiration behind our Casually Crafting Color Challenge this month.  We are using the three colors in the photo for our projects...Fresh Freesia, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  This is such a pretty combination that I'm not sure I would have put together on my own! 

I used the FREE Friendly Hello stamps and Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-bration to create my casual card.  I kept it pretty simple, with straight cuts, no fussy cutting and no dies, so it will be easy peasy to recreate!  After stamping the image on Basic White Cardstock, I used Blender Pens with ink pads to color it in.

I like to have a fun bit of sparkle on my cards, so I added a couple of Opal Rounds in the corner.  For a little extra sparkle and to give the card a more complete look, I used Glittered Organdy Ribbon to wrap around the lower part of the DSP and tied a bow.  

I don't like leaving the insides of cards blank, so I stamped the smaller flower inside and colored it in to match the flowers on the front. 

Thank you for visiting my blog!  Don't forget to swing by the other blogs in this hop to see the creativeness of my fellow team members!

Happy Stamping!
