CC492 Corner Garden Birthday Wishes
Hi Again Stampers!
Here is my last card that I created for the CC492 Color Challenge atSplitcoaststampers- Chocolate Chip, Pretty In Pink and So Saffron and the dessert option is “Dessert”- this time I decided to skip “dessert” :-)
Again, I hope you will take the time (if you have not done so already) to visit the gallery to check out all of the wonderful examples and inspiration!!
To create this card:
Using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the Corner Garden background stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Use Stampin’ Write Markers- Chocolate Chip, So Saffron and retired Pretty In Pink to color the flowers and leaves. Add additional color using Stampin' Blendabilities™- Light markers from the Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake Collections. Use the Chalk Marker to add a few highlights.
Distress the entire panel using Ranger© Tim Holtz® Distress Stains- first Antique Linen followed by Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. At this point, the background was too dark so I spritzed with water and decided to lighten the panel using Picket Fence (wiping off the flowers).
Ink the Dictionary stamp using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink and stamp in a random pattern over the panel (place the image face down onto the Dictionary stamp and press randomly over the image with heavier and lighter pressure).
Cut the panel in thirds and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of retired Pretty In Pink cardstock and add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon triple bow.
Mount the panel onto the Chocolate Chip card base.
Add the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® (I used an image that I had previously printed from My Digital Studio (MDS) from Watercolor Trio).
Add a few Pearls to the sentiment to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Corner Garden, Dictionary, Watercolor Trio (MDS version)
Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Stampin’ Write Markers- Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Pretty In Pink (retired); Stampin' Blendabilities™ - Light Daffodil Delight, Light Melon Mambo and Light Crumb Cake markers; Ranger© Tim Holtz® Distress Stains- Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Picket Fence; Chalk Marker

This card was a bit difficult to photograph- the background has alot of dimension and looks better in real life :-)
