Kindness Matters

Subtle Kindness….

I’m here with a quick challenge card today.

Over at Come and Get It they have a colour challenge for us this week.

I’ve decided to play along and create this very clean and simple card using the Kindness Matters stamp set from Stampin’ Up!® which will be retiring at the end of the month.

Here’s another view so you can see I’ve added some dimension to the card.

For the inside….

I managed to use all scraps (meaning no new full sheets were cut up) to make my card.

I’ve kept if very clean and you can see. Added some paper piercing around the Whisper White pieces for some added detail, but that’s it.

I used my Stampin’ Write Markers in Certainly Celery, Pretty Ink Pink & Wisteria Wonder to colour my butterflies. I love the variegated look to the larger butterfly.

Supplies: (All SU unless stated otherwise)
Stamp sets: Kindness Matters
Card: Pretty In Pink, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
Ink: Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery & Wisteria Wonder Stampin’ Write Markers, Certainly Celery inkpad
Accessories: Paper Piercing Mat, Tool & Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I really like how this turned out and I hope it has inspired you.

Would love for you to leave me a comment and let me know if you like my card.

Inkspirational Challenge #16

It’s time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational and this week is a CASE Challenge.

I’ve gone with some retired DSP “Timeless Portrait” for my card today.

I chose this as Riding Hood Red is being discontinued from Stampin’ Up! at the end of the current catalogue, 30th June, so I wanted to use up some of my Riding Hood Red cardstock.

It was also good to use up some of that retired paper that I always end up with. I don’t have much of this one so that’s good. Now I have a little less.

For my sentiment I’ve used the ‘Thanks’ from Kindness Matters and I’ve stamped it inside a ‘Four Frames’ image.

I’ve punched out the ‘Four Frames’ image with the Decorative Label Punch and then created an additional layer to mat in Riding Hood Red by punching out 2, cutting them in half (one on long side and the other on short side) and then layered them on the back.

A bow made using Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon to finish off.

Supplies: (All items from Stampin’ Up!)
Stamps: Four Frames, Kindness Matters
Card: Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Timeless Portrait DSP (retired)
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Pop on over to Inkspirational and see what the rest of the DT have created to inspire you.
