Floral Affection for PPA #309

Today’s card was inspired by this rich color palette created by Katy McGloin. I have struggled with the new In-Color Sweet Sugarplum therefore this was a true challenge for me.


I created two cards because I was struggling finding my stampin’ mojo. Let’s look at the one I chose to share as a design team member.

Stampin Up, Floral Affection Embossing Folder, birthday card - Michelle Gleeson, stampinup

Floral Affection Textured Embossing Folder adds texture and the small flowers from Jar of Love Bundle add a splash color.

stampin up, Flourish Thinlits, Friendship card - Michelle Gleeson, Stampinup

Flourish Thinlits is the focal point for this card. My husband thought this was very plain so I went back to the drawing board and came up with the one I posted for the design team.

The cards are so very different. Which card to you like better?

Don’t forget to go and see what the other design team members created with this color palette over at Pals Paper Arts.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Michelle, although your first card is pretty, the second one is outstanding! Love the embossing around the die cut sentiment! You certainly found your stampinmojo!!

  2. You created 2 amazing cards. I love how the embossing frames the sentiment in your first card. Lovely.

  3. Michelle I like them both but LOVE the second one. Kudos on a great job my friend!

  4. What an adorable card Michelle. Your embossing is perfectly placed and really makes this card.

  5. Love the clean/simple HB card but the embossing makes it so awesome!
