Sunflower Fun- Two More Cards with the New Blendabilities
Here are the last two cards that I created last night using the PP195 Paper Players Color Challenge (I only submitted this card to the challenge but since I had the colors out and find it difficult to combine green with any orange tone colors, decided to keep creating and working on this color combination).
Again, for the six cards (see the other four in the last four posts), I used My Digital Studio and had printed the images out onto Whisper White cardstock, colored them all at one time and then created the cards.
I decided to use the new Stampin’ Blendabilities™ for the coloring along with traditional card making techniques for the rest of the cards…
Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the Sunflower background image (reduced a bit) along with the sentiment from Thanks for Caring (for the next card), print onto an 8 ½ x 11” piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the flower using the Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities™ Collection markers and use the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker for the center.
Carefully “fussy-cut” out the Sunflower image and cut the image in half.
For the first card, use the Big Shot to emboss a piece of So Saffron cardstock using the Pretty Prints Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. Add the Sunflower and leave the edges of a few of the flower petals free from adhesive and curl with your fingers a bit.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the retired Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and lightly sand with the Sanding Block. Add the panel to a layer of Early Espresso cardstock and mount onto the Pear Pizzazz card base. Add the Pear Pizzazz DSP horizontal panel (also mounted onto Early Espresso cardstock).
Adhere the Sunflower panel to the card front and add the sentiment (stamped from the retiring Hostess set, Express Yourself using Early Espresso Classic Ink).
Add the Pearls to the card front to finish off the card.
For the second card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of So Saffron DSP (the DSP I used was from a previous Hostess set years ago) …add to the Early Espresso card base and adhere the Calypso Coral piece from Epic Day This and That DSP at the bottom.
Add the Sunflower panel and adhere a piece of 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon to cover the seam.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Chalk Talk Framelits™ to cut out the sentiment and adhere onto another piece cut from Early Espresso cardstock (from the same framelit™, cut in half). Using the Background Builders, stamp So Saffron Classic Ink over the sentiment using the script border stamp. Add the Antique Brads and mount onto the card front.
Add the Pearls to corners and sentiment to finish off the card.
