Purple Beauty


I found this purple piece of fabric in a box the other day along with a couple of pretty paper bits in the same size. I remember getting it years ago in a small kit I purchased through Readers Digest. For some reason I never used these pieces. Anyway I die cut the background using a set purchased in a garage sale. Not sure of brand, but I think possibly Spellbinders, and added the fabric to the center. Using an Altenew stamp set called Sunlit Flowers I stamped the flowers and leaves, fussy cut them. My ink layers need work but the flowers are good enough to use. I popped them on top using dimensionals. Added the sentiment from a GKD set that I fussy cut out and a few sequins to finish it off. My hubby really likes this card, I just think it is okay. I’m never sure why I am not happy with the ink layers on these multi step stamps but mine never look as good as those done by others.

  1. Well, it’s purple so what’s not to love? I really like the die cut you used and the bit of fabric really set off the flowers. I have trouble layering flowers too, but yours look great.We’re always our own worst critic.

    1. You are right, we always think that our own work is less than perfect. I’m glad you like it.


  2. Thanks Lisa. Encouragement gratefully received. Having my stamp buddies in my corner sure helps.


  3. If you’re anything like me, the colors don’t look quite how you imagined, which makes it not as nice in your eyes. I like to play with the color layer stamps and figure out which colors I like together. I try to remember to write those combinations down. Personally, I’m with your husband and really like this. I love that you used fabric, too. That adds that “touchable” quality that I love. Adding the dots to the centers of the flowers is such a nice touch.

  4. You hit the nail on the head about the colours. I don’t mind the bluish flower but dislike the pink one. Never realized that this was the issue. Now I know I shall figure out the colours a bit differently next time.
