Stampin’ Up! Best Thoughts With Papillon Potpourri

I used the new Best Thoughts Host Exclusive stamp set from the upcoming 2015-16 Annual Catalog and the Papillon Potpourri stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share today.

Best Thoughts - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Fab Friday 64.

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 4.23.32 PMI started by embossing a panel of Smoky Slate card stock with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL, then to a Soft Sky card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Best Thoughts 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a panel of Smoky Slate DSP from the new Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack to a panel of Whisper White card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL.  I stamped the flower image from the Best Thoughts stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Soft Sky card stock, then heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Best Thoughts 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Best Thoughts stamp set in VersaMark Ink over the flower image and heat embossed it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I colored the little dots in the flower centers with my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker, then adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL and to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Best Thoughts 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the butterfly image from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Calypso Coral card stock, then heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I punched the butterfly out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch, then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Best Thoughts 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the butterfly image from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set in Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral and Soft Sky inks across a Whisper White panel inside the card.

  1. You never cease to amaze me. This is stunning, Amy! I love everything about it. Great use of color and texture. Thanks for playing along with this sketch challenge at FabFriday!

  2. Ahh, this is another one of those “I love everything about it” cards! Amazing card! I really like those colors together too.

  3. I love everything about this card! It’s elegant and practical and could be used for a man or a woman. Very nice! TFS!

  4. I would not have thought to put these colors together, but you did, and they look wonderful! Love the sentiment partially stamped on the flower and the tiny bit of coral on the flower too! Beautiful pop of coral for the butterfly~

  5. Hi Amy, Thanks so much for getting back to me on the paper that you used for the flower. I found it in the new catalog; without your demo, I would have passed right over it!!!  I love todays card and I have to tell you that I am addicted to your daily posts!!!!  I don’t know how you do it!!!I ordered your all share, but have I paid for it?  Thanks again. You are inspiring !   Marilyn

  6. This is such a beautiful card, Amy. The colors are so calming and the butterfly could be just about any color – but I’d keep Calypso Coral! Perfect card to CASE.

  7. Beautiful! I always loved this color combo in the Color Coach! The hint of Calypso Coral in the flowers really ties it all together! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  8. I love this card. It’s so pretty. Is the big flower and butterfly from the Hostess set? Loved that you showed a different way to showcase the flower. I just wouldn’t have thought of that. Now I will.

    • Thanks Gloria! The big flower is from the new host set called Best Thoughts, the butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set. Glad that you liked it! 🙂
