Get Well Wishes- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!  

I love the bright colors from this week’s CQC94 ColourQ Challenge and decided to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using these colors along with the Pals Paper Arts PPA103 Sketch. 

Both sites have an array of excellent examples from their Design Teams as well as the other submissions- if you have time, check them out!

To create this card:

Create a mask for the sun using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch (you can use a sticky note but I used cardstock this time).  Layer the mask with the circle cut out onto Whisper White and with a Sponge Dauber, sponge Daffodil Delight for the sun. 

Remove the mask and hold the circle cut-out over the just sponged Daffodil Delight "sun" and with two more Sponge Daubers, apply Tangerine Tango and a bit of Rich Razzleberry for the sky area (I also had a torn piece of cardstock mask for the grassy area).  

Invert the torn piece of cardstock over the sky area (to mask the recently sponged sky) and sponge Green Galore for the grass.  Sponge  a bit of Tangerine Tango over the Daffodil Delight to tone down the sun and stamp the floral silhouette image in Rich Razzleberry over the entire scene.  Sponge the edges with Rich Razzleberry and punch out using the 2 ½” XL Circle Punch.  

Use the Big Shot with the Finial Press EF and emboss only a portion of the Whisper White background.  Attach the Rich Razzleberry ribbon and mount this layer onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  

Emboss a piece of Green Galore cardstock with the Square Lattice EF and cut out a Top Note Die shape.  Cut the Top Note in half and adhere to the card front.  Mount the sponged scene, satin ribbon bow, sentiment and pearls to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:   Love and Care (hostess), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Green Galore (retired)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Green Galore (retired)
Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice and Finial Press EF, Sponge Daubers, , Punches-1 3/4” Circle, 2 ½” XL Circle, Word Window, Modern Label , Pearls, 5/8” Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon (retired)

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- have a blessed Sunday!
