Who doesn’t love flowers?! When I saw The Sweet Life by Papertrey Ink, I knew I had to have it (sounds like every other set I have lol). I tried to work with sets that involve stamping multiple times to get a finished image of a rose or other flower, but it’s always failed! This is one of the easier sets to work with, in my opinion (and happy that it has coordinating dies!) I spent some time just figuring out what color combinations worked for some of the flowers. I have a lot of inks, but compared to many experienced crafters, it’s obviously not enough! 😉
The colors that worked for the pink roses from bottom layer to top: Mama Elephant Piggy Bank, Memento Rose Bud, and Stampin’ Up Melon Mambo. No need to buy these exact ones because other colors will work — just practice until you get a look you’re satisfied with!
I didn’t want to bore you with an individual image of each card, nor did I want to post a separate entry for each one. Here are some of my favorites:
I definitely plan on trying different color combinations, techniques, and thinking outside the box for these sets! For now, I really needed some quick thank-you, birthday, and hello cards for friends! Blessed to have SO MANY friends and especially ones who appreciate and support my work!
