You Move Me, Definitely Dahlia!

Today’s project is a CASE (copy and share everything) of THIS card by fellow demonstrator Kylie Bertucci!

Aren’t those colors amazing together? Kylie’s card used Tip Top Taupe, which is now retired, so I used Crumb Cake instead. I changed the layout a little bit to make the card my own.

To get the multi-color effect, I first inked up the Definitely Dahlia background stamp with Soft Sky. Then, with sponge daubers, I added colors in random areas in this order: Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, and Night of Navy (light to dark). Then, I gently spritzed the stamp with water before stamping on Shimmery White cardstock, which gives it a really cool watercoloring effect. After adhering the sentiment, I added a trio of silver metallic sequins.

The Definitely Dahlia stamp set makes it so easy to create a beautiful card quickly! It looks beautiful inked up in one color or multiple colors. Take a look HERE for some Pinterest inspiration.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
