There's a new colour challenge happening over the Colour INKspirations and for this I wanted to attempt the stamped one sheet wonder technique from Ruth Trice at Artful Stampin'. Colours for this challenge are Bumble Bee, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White and Basic Black, we were also allowed to use Crumb Cake and metallics. I added Crumb Cake to my colour palette. Second and third generation stamping was used to get more variations of colour due to the limited selection we were allowed to use.
From my full A4 sheet, I went and trimmed it both ways to create four equal card fronts then went and trimmed these down to 3 3/4"x 5 3/8". I saved the strips to use on the inside of my cards. These were glued onto Bumble Bee and Mossy Meadow card stock layers measuring 3 7/8" x 5 1/2" and these were adhered to Whisper White Thick card bases. I used two stamp sets: Gorgeous Posies stamp set which is part of a kit but can be purchased separately and Blossoms in Bloom.
I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added Bumble Bee Gingham Ribbon on one card and Lilnen Twine on the other before placing my sentiments on with the Foam Adhesive Strips. Pearls were added to give both cards a little pizazz. I still felt something was missing so I went and grabbed the Many Layered Blooms dies and die cut some flowers and leaves and arranged them around my sentiments. Rather than die cut the whole die for a few leaves, I taped some scraps to the parts that I needed.
I still have two card fronts left over that I can use for any unexpected occasion that may pop up in the future.
