Style Beautiful Inspired By Heidi Swapp

I was surfing Heidi Swapp's blog yesterday and saw a scrapbook page that instantly spoke to me!  (The post of her's is found here.)It was fresh and summery with a vintage flare and inspired me to use some of my new stash from the new catalog.  The Newsprint (#117166) designer series paper is going to be SO FUN to use this year.  And I must say that one of my very favorite additions to the catalog this year is the Patterns Designer Series PAPER STACK (#'s 117158, 117155, 117152, 117154 and 117157)!  It's a stack of 40 sheets in double-sided designs in 10 colors.  One for all the color families.  I started with the subtles collection (#117152) and I think I'll get the Brights collection next.  Wish I could get them all at once, but I can't.  Boo hoo.
And those Paper Daisies!  How fun are those going to be?  And a great price, too! (# 119243, $6.95)
Do you LOVE this card?  I do.  I'm really loving it.  Really.
Stamp sets: Style Beautiful (# ), Elements of Style (# )
Ink:  Basic Black (#101179), More Mustard (#103162), Marina Mist (#119668)
Paper:  Marina Mist (#119682), Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (#117152), Newsprint (#117166), Whisper White (#100730), So Saffron (#105118), Crumb Cake (#120953)
Accessories:  Paper Daisies (#119243), Basic Pearls (#119247), Aqua Painter (#103954), Mini glue dots (#103683), Paper Snips (#103579), 1 3/8 inch circle punch (#119860), Spiral border (#119872), Stampin Sponges (#101610), Snail adhesive (#104332)

Card base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of Crumb Cake.  Use your bone folder to crease.  Cut a piece of the polka dot marina mist patterned paper to 4 x 5 1/4 inches, sponge the edges with More Mustard ink.  Cut a piece of the ledger paper from the Newsprint pack to 4 x 3 1/4 inches, punch the top with the spiral border punch, crumple slightly and sponge all over with More Mustard ink.  Stamp the flower image from Elements of Style stamp set in Marina Mist ink on Whisper white paper and cut out the image with paper snips (a must have for detailed cutting).  Stamp the larger flourish image from Style Beautiful stamp set in More Mustard ink on So Saffron paper and immediately use the aqua painter to paint the lines of the image.  This gives an aged look to the image.  Cut out with paper snips and sponge the edges in More Mustard.  Punch out a circle then punch a portion of the circle off as shown in the photo below to make two leaves.  Crumple and sponge the edges in More Mustard.  Stamp the flourish from Style Beautiful in Marina Mist on Whisper White paper and then stamp again so the images face each other as shown, creating a larger medallion type image.  Stamp the sentiment in the middle using Basic Black ink.
To create the flowers, ink the them with More Mustard ink as shown then use the aqua painter to blend.  Add more ink if necessary and blend again till you get the desired depth of color.  Assemble the card as shown. Use glue dots to adhere the leaves and flowers.

Punched leaves.

Direct ink to flower application.
