A special thank you to the Global Design Project Design Team for selecting my card as a winner for this week’s Color Challenge.
As I write this post the Midwest and Northeast are getting hit with snow which will be followed by a deep freeze. We have had a chilly rainy weekend ourselves. On Friday we had three pallets of mulch delivered, we only got one pallet spread yesterday before the rains started.
So…I have enjoyed catching up on some memory keeping. ((Thank you rain.) Before leaving my craft room today I made this card for the Global DesignProject Color Challenge #173. I love this soft color combination.
My card was inspired by a Jackie Aitken, an Australian demonstrator, card.
I used the All About You stamp set and Rectangle Stitched Framelits for my card. My Scan N Cut made cutting all the flowers and leaves a breeze.
Using my blender pen I added a little bit of coordinating color on each of the flowers followed by little Wink of Stella. That tiny bit of sparkle is very pretty.
I appreciate you stopping by.
I know that the Midwest and Northeast are getting more snow this weekend so I thought a bright sunny card might be just the right thing to post.
The card base is Mango Melody (it is such a yummy color). I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Humming Along stamp set in Momento Black Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends. I cut an oval from my Layering Oval Dies into a piece of cardboard/chipboard and then used that to mask the flower area while embossing the rest of the focal point. I have not done this in forever.
I added two banners of Lemon Lime Twist and the embossed focal point using mono glue. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on vellum. I trimmed the vellum down and added to the card with vellum specific runner adhesive.
An Organdy Ribbon bow was added to the top left to balance the heavy sentiment in the lower right. This Organdy Ribbon, and four additional colors, are part of Sale-A-Bration and is FREE with product purchase of $50 or more.
I hope you have an enjoyable weekend wherever you live.
On the 9th of each month Concord & 9th launches a new set of products. This month they knocked it out of the park with a series of Turnabout stamps and tools. I received my order on Monday and could not wait to ink up this stamp set.
I used the SU color palette of Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede. I used retired SU DSP for the balloon. I love the result.
Thanks for stopping by!
I purchased the P.S. You’re the Best stamp set in December to prepare for the January Crafty Carrot classes. Susan Wong kicked it off this past week with this super cute card. I have not had much time to craft so it was great to follow along with Susan during the class.
While Susan used the Birthday Note sentiment I chose two other sentiments included in the stamp set.
While I worked over the holidays the weeks were so chopped up I never knew what day it was. It will be a tough week needing to work for FIVE DAYS but I am ready to get back to some normalcy. How about you?
Thanks for stopping by!
