A Spring Color Combination- Feel Better Soon
Hi again Stampers!
Here is the second card that I created for this week’s SUO#90 Punch Parade Challenge using this week’s DD89 Subtly Yours Dynamic Duos colors. I decided to incorporate some of my favorite elements along with the punches- embossing folders, watercolor, background stamps and ribbon.
Again, if you have not had the time to stop by the SU-Only Challenges or Dynamic Duos sites yet, we would love to have you visit and take part in our challenges.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock (ink the interior of the embossing folder first with Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink). Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Using the AquaPainter™ with ink from the Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink pad, apply the ink in a random pattern on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. While it is still damp, lightly stamp the En Francais background stamp using Basic Black Classic Ink (putting uneven pressure to achieve a variegated look).
Cut the background along with another frame from Basic Black cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the Window Frames Collection Framelits™. Cut the Basic Black frame in half horizontally and layer behind the background piece allowing a bit to show at the top and bottom. Trim off the lower portion of the window frame panel and adhere the top portion of the window frame to the embossed honeycomb layer.
Cut a Tea Lace Paper Doily in half and adhere below the window frame. Add the other portion of the window frame, along with the sentiment from Express Yourself (punched out with the XL Oval Punch and layered onto another piece punched with the same punch).
Add the 5/8” Basic Black double ribbon bow and adhere the tails of the bow behind the panel. Mount the entire panel onto a Whisper White card base.
Stamp the flowers from Flower Shoppe using Basic Black Classic Ink and punch out with the Pansy Punch (or by hand). Color the flowers using the AquaPainter™ and Blushing Bride Classic Ink- add a few additional shadows with the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write marker and use the Chalk Marker to add highlights to the flower centers.
Stamp the butterflies using Basic Black Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, add a bit of Blushing Bride Classic Ink using the AquaPainter™ and count out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch.
Adhere the flowers, butterflies and Vintage Brad using Mini Glue Dots or I used a Hot Glue Gun (since I had mine ready to go from a previous project). Add the Pearls to the center of the butterflies and along the sentiment to finish off the card.
