It’s time for the new SUO122 “Fun Flowers” Challenge and I decided to use a neglected newer stamp set, Beautiful Bunch along with Perfect Peacock :-)
I decided to incorporate the Around the World AW40 Color Challenge with a modified version of the Splitcoaststampers’ SC523 Sketch (see details here and gallery here), the MIX119 Texture Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and the Just Us Girls JUGS292 Embossing Challenge.
I hope you will find the time to check out all of the challenge sites and create your own “Fun Flowers” project using Stampin’ Up! Only products !!
To create this card:
Use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the Perfect Peacock image using Versamark™ Ink , apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Color using Stampin’ Write markers- Tempting Turquoise, Blushing Bride and Real Red, spritz with water and rub gently with a paper towel to remove the ink from the embossed area. Reapply the markers as needed and when dry, carefully “fussy-cut” the peacock and set aside.
Using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, stamp the four to five flowers onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the flowers with the AquaPainter™ using Blushing Bride, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink, add additional details with Stampin’ Write Markers in the same colors and spritz with water. Add a few white highlights to the flower centers using the White Gel Pen.
Once the flowers are dry, carefully “fussy-cut” and cut the flowers in half.
Adhere a piece of Tempting Turquoise Designer Series Paper (DSP) to a piece of Real Red cardstock, emboss using the Big Shot™ with the retiring Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and lightly sand with the Sanding Block.
Emboss a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the retiring Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and adhere to a piece of Real Red.
“Dry fit” the two embossed panels on the Whisper White cardstock background, use a pencil to note the intersection at the bottom, remove the panels and stamp the sentiment from the soon-to-be retired set, Blooming with Kindness using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Trim the sentiment panel, mount onto a piece of Real Red cardstock, trim and adhere the entire panel onto the Tempting Turquoise card base.
Add the vertical Tempting Turquoise panel directly to the card front and adhere the Blushing Bride embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Position the peacock (do not adhere yet) and fit the flowers around the peacock until you are satisfied with the layout.
Adhere the flowers to the peacock on the edges and mount the entire assembly using Stampin’ Dimensionals® (doubling the thickness of the Dimensionals® on the left hand side of the card to take in account the height of the Blushing Bride layer).
Add the two flower halves on the Blushing Bride panel to finish off the card.
