SUO178 Summer Blossoms
It’s time for the #178 “Summer Fun” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges! I decided to use summer colors- oranges and yellows for my floral card but anything that makes you think of summer would be perfect for our challenge using Stampin’ Up! only products! We hope that you can join us and that we will see your creation in our gallery.
I also incorporated the Splitcoaststampers’ SC647 SketchChallenge along with the JUGS400 Celebrate Challenge and the Simon SaysWednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the other challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the floral image from Butterfly Basics using Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Using ink from Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry Classic ink along with an AquaPainter™, watercolor the blossoms. Color the leaves with Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi Classic Ink and add deeper color with the coordinating Stampin’ Write Markers and shadows with the Sahara Sand marker.
2). Ink the honeycomb image with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink, stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper and stamp over the floral image. Trim the panel and stamp the postmark stamp with Pumpkin Pie in the corner. Trim the panel and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.
3). To create the second panel, press the Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry Classic Ink stamp pads onto a silicone craft mat, lightly spritz with water and lay the piece of paper into the ink, lift up the panel and repeat the step until you are satisfied with the results. Ink the honeycomb image with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink and stamp over the panel, trim the panel and mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim close to the edge.
4). Trim the piece of Whisper White cardstock, mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
5). De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from Beautiful You with Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder, heat set with the Heat Tool and once cooled, trim around the sentiment.
6). Layer the right hand panel (per the sketch) directly to the card front, mount the floral image panel and sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
7). Use the Clear Wink of Stella® Glitter Pen to add shimmer to the flower petals, add white highlights with the White Gel Pen and a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.
