About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

FB_IMG_1488872724561Hi! Welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop! Boy, that’s a mouthful. The winners from February’s Blog Highlights are hopping with Kylie today, and I’m honored to be in the winners’ blog hop again with so many talented crafters! Thank you so much to those who voted for me. Y’all are the best.

Stampin' Up! Inside the Lines designer series paper is only available until the end of March! - Botanical Builders & Dragonfly Dreams & Hexagons dynamic embossing folder - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Our theme this time is Get Well cards, the same as the theme for the highlight.

I had a hard time coming up with my card this time. I just couldn’t get a card to come together. I had about twenty stamp sets on my desk by the time I settled on my design. But I love the way it turned out. My aha moment was when I decided to add the embossed cardstock in the circle negative. That’s when I suddenly knew what I was making. Phew.

Tips for CASEing my card:

*The Inside the Lines designer series paper — WHY does this have to be a Sale-A-Bration freebie?? I’m so sad that it will be gone forever at the end of March. It is time-consuming to color the paper, but it’s also so relaxing. I actually only intended to color in the halo of flowers around the cutout, but then I just couldn’t stop coloring. My flowers are colored with Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango, Pool Party, and Cucumber Crush markers. This paper also looks fabulous in black and white, so you don’t even have to spend all that time coloring it if you don’t want to.
*I cut out the circle with the Layering Circles framelits, then cut a larger scalloped circle in Cucumber Crush and cut out the center of that to frame the die cut.

*The embossed piece behind the circle is Whisper White cardstock, embossed with the Hexagons Dynamic embossing folder. I sponged on Daffodil Delight ink. I wanted some variation in color, which is why I didn’t just emboss a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock. I stamped the splatters (from the Swirly Bird stamp set) in Versamark ink and embossed them with Copper embossing powder.
*The bee is cut out with Paper Snips.
*The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, cut out with a banner from the Bunch of Banners framelits. I also cut the same banner out of Basic Black cardstock, snipped it in half, and glued the two halves to the back of the sentiment, offset at the ends.
*Rhinestones make great flower centers!

*I stamped the splatters again in Pool Party (stamped off first) for the inside of the card.

I recognise your struggle- (and IM SO glad i wasn’t the only one who struggled this time!!) I too had multiple stamp sets, DSP, ink paper and pens every where. But seriously-This is an amazing card- so bright and cheery-that anyone sick is bound to snap out of it right then and there. I love your card- and I loved Hopping with you!

I really love your card! It is very colorful but everything is playing very nicely together – and the bee just pops off your pretty embossed circle. I can see why it all came together after you added that!
