As Time and Memory Bring Healing- A CAS card for the PPA211 Color Challenge


Hi Again Stampers! 

I love the colors for this week’s Pals Paper Arts PPA211 Challenge so I created two cards using the colors (usually when I have the colors out for a color challenge it is difficult to only create one card – lol!!)   I will share the second card in a separate post since it also qualifies for a sketch challenge :-)

Again, I hope you will find the time to visit the Pals Paper Arts site- they have a fabulous Design Team and so many entries in their weekly gallery!

To create this Clean and Simple (CAS) card: 

Ink the background stamp, Corner Garden using Night of Navy Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Color the blossoms using the Night of Navy Blendabilities™ Collection and add a few details with the Night of Navy Stampin’ Write marker and the Chalk Marker.

Using a Sponge Dauber, lightly sponge a bit of Night of Navy Classic Ink around the flower’s edge.  

Use the retired Color Spritzer Tool with the Night of Navy Stampin’ Write marker to add a bit of distressing.

Stamp the sentiment in the corner using Night of Navy Classic Ink and adhere the panel onto a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Stamp the butterflies using Night of Navy Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  Color using the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities™ and use the Night of Navy Stampin’ Write marker to darken some of the areas on the wings.

Add the butterflies to the panel to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets: Corner Garden, Papillon Potpourri, Bloom with Hope

Ink: Night of Navy, Stampin’ Blendabilities™- Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy Collections, Night of Navy Stampin’ Write marker, Chalk Marker
Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Night of Navy
Accessories: Elegant Butterfly Punch, Sponge Dauber, retired Color Spritzer Tool

Thanks again for visiting- I will share the second card created with this color combination later today

I love this colour combination too. I love that you concentrated the Night of Navy on the floral images in such a strong way. Very nice.

Beautiful card, Julie. The butterflies brighten the dark flowers perfectly. I appreciate the butterfly punch that doesn't leave the white edging around the image. Love the sponging and 'sprinkling' of color beyond the floral image, too.
