Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

This month we are having another colour challenge, this time set by the lovely Sam Roberts.

I decided to make this card showcasing these beautiful cheerful colours.

Colour Challenge, Melon Mambo, Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist

I used Whisper White for my base and then dry embossed a layer of Whisper White with the new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I added a piece of the new Lemon Lime Twist 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon.

Lemon Lime Twist 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon, Climbing Orchids Stamp set

I then stamped the smallest Orchid from the Climbing Orchid stamp set in all three colours on Whisper White cardstock. I adhered the squares to a piece of cardstock in the matching colour.

Isn't the detail on the dry embossing stunning, here's a close up.

  1. Jillian, I love your use of the embossing folder with the orchids. Not a stamp set I have yet but this just shows how amazing the stamps are without the the thinlets x

    1. Thanks Vicky. I wasn't sure about the Orchid bundle until I received a card using them, they are stunning with or without the dies xx

  2. Love you card Jillian and love the idea of stamping the orchids in the challenge colours. I love this embossing folder too and have used it when making a few cards. xx
