Putting the card together:

  • Card base: Powder Pink Cardstock cut to 8-1/4″ x 5-7/8″; scored at 4-1/8″.
  • Taking a second piece of Powder Pink I cut it to 4″ x 3″.  I then embossed it using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder, from the Blossoming Baskets Bundle.
  • I tied some Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon around the Basket Weave piece and adhered it to the card base with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • I took some Whisper White Cardstock to cut out one of the second largest circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and two flowers from the Petals & More Framelits.
  • Then I cut out one Powder Pink flower from the Petals & More Framelits.  I was extra careful popping out the flowers from the Framelits, I put Tear & Tape Adhesive on the back to keep all the pieces together.  I then adhered the flower to the Stitched Shape circle.
  • I adhered the top flower on top of the Powder Pink flower with Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  And the flower underneath adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the stitched circle and then to the card base.
  • Finally I stamped the sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set on to Whisper White with Basic Gray Ink.  Then used the name plate die from the Petals & More framelits to cut out the sentiment and adhered it with Fast Fuse.

Just Add Ink 401: Sketch Challenge

Today I played along with the Just Add Ink’s Sketch Challenge.

2523401

Since this is the last week of Sale-A-Bration I have been trying to focus on these products.  In this card I have used three SAB products.  I took inspiration for the palette from the flowers, from the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, that I had coloured in using Stampin’ Blends the other day.

The colour palette I used for this card is Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry and Basic Gray.

Gather your supplies:

2018030a

Putting the card together:

  • Card Base: Rich Razzleberry Cardstock cut to 8-1/4″ x 5-7/8″; scored at 4-1/8″.
  • I took a second piece of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock sized to 4″ x 2-1/2″.  Then I used the Basket Weave Embossing Folder, from the Blossoming Basket Bundle, to emboss the piece of Rich Razzleberry.
  • I took a piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock sized to 5″ x 3″.  I used a Bone Folder distress the corners, then separated the corners.  I also scrunched the cardstock to make it look extra distressed.
  • I took a piece of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack sized to 4-1/2″ x 2-1/2″.
  • For the flowers I coloured in the two flowers one with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Marker Combo and the other with Rich Razzleberry Light Stampin’ Blends Marker and Pink Pirouette Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker.  When I was finished colouring I fussy cut the flowers out.
  • I adhered down the Rich Razzleberry piece with Fast Fuse Adhesive but, before I stuck it down I passed the Basic Gray ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack underneath to tie later.
  • I adhered the Pink Pirouette and Petal Garden pieces down with more Fast Fuse.
  • I punched out a Starburst piece of Whisper White Cardstock and adhered it with Fast Fuse.  I finished tying the ribbon.
  • Finally I adhered the top flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the bottom flower with Fast Fuse.

I’m glad the Basket Weave Embossing Folder is going to be available in the Annual Catalogue coming in June.

And also the Stampin’ Blends have been unfortunately made unavailable until the end of May due to supply issues.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

CTC171: Sale-A-Bration

Today I played along with CASEing the Catty Challenge, CASEing pages from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.  I chose a card on page 13 from the original SAB catalogue.  What I love about this card is that you can make it in many different variations you just have to have scrap pieces/off cuts of Designer Series Paper, which I know that we all have.
