CC486- Trust In the Lord
I had a chance to play around in my craft room with some of the new stamp sets and decided to use the Splitcoaststampers CC486 Color Challenge- Old Olive, Calypso Coral and DaffodilDelight with the “dessert” option of a fun fold (who can resist dessert :-)) so I decided to create an easel card.
Again, I know most of you have already stopped by the Splitcoaststampers gallery, but if not, I hope you will find the time to do so- it is amazing the variety and inspiration from just one color challenge!!
To create this fun easel card:
Ink the floral stamp from the new stamp set, Beautiful Bunch using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp two of the images onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color one of the flower petals using the Calypso Coral Blendabilities™ Collection and the other flower with the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities™ Collection. Color the center of both flowers using the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities™ Collection and add a few details to the center with the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities™ Collection as well as the Chalk Marker.
Punch the flowers out with the Fun Flower Punch (I trimmed the white away from the edges after punching) and cut each flower in half.
Adhere the two alternate colored halves together onto the piece of Old Olive Park Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP) and mount onto a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, trim and mount again onto Whisper White cardstock.
Create the easel card using the tutorial from Splitcoaststampers located here…I used a Whisper White cardstock base and layered with Old Olive cardstock.
Adhere a piece of retired Calypso Coral DSP (from the DSP Stack) and add the vertical pieces of Park Lane DSP (layered onto Calypso Coral with trim from the Finishing Touches Edgelit™).
Mount the floral panel to the front of the main part of the easel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment from Trust God using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and adhere to a piece of Old Olive cardstock.
Cut the remaining halves of the flowers from the first steps above in half and adhere the quartered section to the corner of the sentiment panel.
Adhere a piece of retired Calypso Coral DSP (from the DSP Stack used above) onto the lower panel of the easel over the Old Olive base and attach a piece of the Finishing Touches trim along the sentiment panel.
Mount the sentiment panel to the easel base (the trim helps to hold open the easel) and add a few Pearls to finish off the card.
