Calming Camellia – Love You, Friend

Lots of sketch challenges are due today.  So here we go…

Sketch / Theme: Try Stampin’ On Tuesday (#542) and Color / Theme: Tic Tac Toe (#149).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Evening Evergreen cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4⅛” x 5⅜”) Soft Succulent trimmed Ombre Gift Bag.
  • Circle Shape: (3”) Evening Evergreen Cross Checked patterned piece of paper from the 2021 /2023 In-Color Designer Series Paper pack die-cut with the largest Scalloped circle die from the Layering Circles Dies set.
  • Tag: (2” x 3⅞”) Very Vanilla cardstock.  The Floral image from the FREE Sale-a-bration Hostess stamp set, Calming Camellia, was stamped with Evening Evergreen ink and then die-cut with the largest tag die from the Tailor Mage Tags Dies set.
  • Sentiment Flag: (3″ x ½”) Evening Evergreen cardstock scrap.  The sentiment, Love You, Friend, from the Shaded Summer stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.  The Flag was trimmed to a point.
  • Accent Flags: (2” x ½”) Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen cardstock scraps.

All of the elements were adhered to match the sketch.  Additional Embellishments – I chose to add a bit of Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon through the Tag Hole and topped it with a light green Genial Gem.

The Calming Camellia stamp set is so lovely.  The Sale-a-bration promotion is quickly coming to the end.  Don’t miss your chance to get this stamp set.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
