Hi and welcome to the Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop for June. Thanks so much for hopping with us this month. The theme for our June Blog Hop is a Colour Challenge. Here are the colours we were challenged to use.
I really wasn’t sure what colour to use as my Colour of Your Choice, but as I generally have a lot of floral stamp sets it was pretty much a given that I would use one, so I went with Granny Apple Green. I just can’t break the habit of having green leaves.
I ended up making 2 cards using 2 different stamp sets. Here is the first one using Petal Park stamp set.
Card 1 Details:
To make this card I started with a 91mm x 134mm piece of Basic White cardstock. I then stamped the outline leaf image using Granny Apple Green ink onto the Basic White cardstock before stamping the solid leaf image, also using Granny Apple Green ink but stamping off once onto scrap first. Next, I masked the leaf images before using a blending brush and Starry Sky ink, to lightly colour the background. I roughed up the edges of this piece using a bone folder and also lightly curled the corners. This was then mounted onto a 95mm x 138mm piece of Starry Sky cardstock and then onto a Flirty Flamingo base card.
Next, I stamped the outline flower image onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and then stamped the solid image, stamping off once first onto scrap. I then used the coordinating punch to punch out the flowers. These where then mounted to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. My sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock using Versamark ink and then I heat embossed using White embossing powder. One end of this piece was punched using the Banners Pick A Punch punch before mounting to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch was to add some Irredescent Rhinestones.
I also decorated the inside of the card with a little stamping.
For my 2nd card I decided to use the Bottled with Happiness stamp set.
Card 2 Details:
To make this card I started with a Starry Sky base card. I then added a Flirty Flamingo piece of designer series paper cut at 100mm x 144.5mm. Next, I stamped the images onto an A6 piece of Basic White cardstock. I used markers to colour the 2 floral/leaf images and then the Starry Sky inkpad for the bottle. I then trimmed this piece down to 82mm x 123mm and mounted to a 86mm x 127mm piece of Starry Sky cardstock. This was then mounted to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment was stamped onto a 50mm x 15mm piece of Basic White cardstock using Granny Apple Green ink. Next, I cut a 50mm x 15mm piece of Flirtly Flamingo cardstock and adhered the two pieces before mounting using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Lastly, I added some Irredescent Rhinestones.
For the inside of the card I added a small strip of Flirtly Flamingo designer series paper to a piece of Starry Sky cardstock. This was then mounted to the Basic White insert and then adhered to the inside of the card.
I hope my cards have inspired you in some way and thanks for visiting.
