Here are my cards for challenge inspiration. I used Retro Petals Turnabout Stamp set.
I started by stamping Retro Petals Turnabout Stamp on a piece of 5.5×5.5 inch 80lb Neenah white paper using Tim Holtz Stamping Platform. I stamped each turn with different colors of Simon Says Dye Inks : Cotton Candy, Doll Pink, Barely Beige and Orange Slush.
Next, I trimmed the panel into A2 size then adhered it onto A2 sized top folded card base I made using Simon's Doll Pink Card Stock.
Big Happy diecut was made out of Simon Copper Glitter paper & scrap white cardstock then was foam mounted onto the panel. I added a slip of vellum paper between diecut and background panel. I also used a small sentiment "BIRTHDAY" block from Beautiful Flowers set. I then adhered some 6mm and 4mm clear droplets as a final touch.
For my two blue cards, I used Simon Dye Inks - Barely Beige, Audrey Blue, and Surf Blue- and an Altenew ink Rocky Shore. Then I made custom card base using Simon's Audrey Blue Card Stock.
In this second card, Everything Together set, Wonky Rectangles Dies, Simon Copper Glitter paper, and Metallic Rose Gold Jewels were used.
And in the last card, I heat embossed sentiments from Everything Together set in white on Vellum paper and adhered it onto background panel.
I added twine and Metallic Gold sequins as a final touch.
So now it's YOUR turn.
