Colour INKspiration Challenge #106 feat. Stitched Greenery Die


 

Hello crafty friends!  Welcome, and thanks for popping in!
 

Colour INKspirations Challenge #105 is now live over on our Colour INKspiration Challenge Facebook Page.  The photo for this challenge was picked by fellow Crew Member, Lou Kitzelman and our Guest Designer this challenge is the very talented Berdien Weideveld

 


My card features quite a few Stampin' Up! products but I wanted to show off the beautiful Stitched Greenery Die which I have used today for my background.  This die is amazing and I'm very surprised at how well you can put it with so many other products like I've done here.  I've also used the Creating With Friends Stamp Set and the very popular Penned Flowers Dies. To finish off my card, I've added a few sequins from the Artistry Bloom Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

 


Supplies Needed:

  • Dies:  Stitched Greenery, Penned Flowers
  • Stamp Set:  Create With Friends
  • Cardstock:  Basic White Thick (card base), Basic White Regular (die cuts), Pool Party, Night of Navy, Real Red
  • Stampin' Blends: Real Red Combo Pack
  • Ink:  Night of Navy, Versamark
  • Embossing Powder:  White
  • Embellishments: Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins
  • Tools:  Blending Brush, Paper Snips (aka scissors) Paper Trimmer, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Heat Tool  
  • Adhesives:  Mini Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Glue

 

Assembly:


You'll need a card base in Basic White Thick cs, a piece of Night of Navy cs measuring 1/4" smaller on all sides that your card front, a piece of Pool Party cs that you can trim down to 1/16" smaller on all sides than the piece of Night of Navy cs, two smaller pieces of Real Red cs measuring approx 1" x 3" and pieces of Basic White cs for the die cuts.

 

 


Run the piece of Pool Party cs through your die cutting machine with the Stitched Greenery Die


 

 

 


Carefully blend Night of Navy Ink onto the piece of Pool Party to create an ombre effect along one of the longer sides.

Then trim down so that it's 1/16" smaller on all sides than the piece of Night of Navy cs

 

 

 


From a scrap of Basic White cs, die cut the scallop edge.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
From a scrap of Basic White cs, die cut the detailed floral die


 

 

 

 


From a scrap of Basic White cs, die cut three of the large flowers.

 

 

 

 


Colour these using the Real Red Stampin Blend Combo Pack - I started with dark towards the centres then went over the top with the light, blending with the dark.

 

 

 

 


Stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink on Night of Navy cs and heat emboss in White Embossing Powder.  

Fussy cut each word.

 

 

 


To put it all together, adhere the two pieces of Real Red cs to the back of the Night of Navy piece at a 'jaunty angle' then adhere this to your card front also at a slightly 'jaunty angle'.
Take the piece of Pool Party and adhere this on top taking card not to push too hard if you're using Tombow Glue otherwise it will come up through the holes created from the die - ask me how I know this!  
Adhere the scallop edge strip, followed by the detailed floral die and the Real Red flowers. 
Lastly add your sentiment pieces. Attach the 'Amazing' first with Mini Dimensionals, then adhere the 'YOU'RE'  with Tombow.

                                                To finish off, add a few sequins and you're card is done!

Colour INKspiration Challenge #105 feat. Hand-Penned Petals Bundle

 

 
Hello crafty friends!  Welcome, and thanks for popping in!
 

Colour INKspirations Challenge #105 is now open over on our Colour INKspiration Challenge Facebook Page.  The photo for this challenge was picked by fellow Crew Member, Jan Clothier and our Guest Designer this challenge is the very talented Melodie Viljoe.


 I took on board the floral/spring vibe with my card - it's almost Spring Time here in Queensland Australia - and used the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle along with the Artistic Dies. This is a slim-line card, almost monochromatic but with a hint of colour sneaking from under the die cut. Linen Thread and Elegant Faceted Gems were added to finish off.


Supplies Needed:

  • Hand Penned Petals Bundle
  • Artistic Dies
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
  • Inks:  Mango Melody, Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, Sahara Sand
  • Stampin' Blends: Mango Melody Combo Pack (retired)
  • Embellishments:  Linen Thread, Elegant Faceted Gems
  • Adhesives:  Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals
  • Tools:  Paper Trimmer, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Acrylic Blocks (B, C, E)
 
Card Assembly:
 
 
Die cut two each of the sprig and floral die from Artistic Dies in Very Vanilla cardstock and glue each pair together to give them more stability.

Do the same again for the detailed floral die in Penned Flowers Dies.

Stamp the co-ordinating image in second generation Sahara Sand and stamp the cordinating fill-in images.  Die cut using the outline die that matches the image.
 
Glue the co-ordinating detailed die on top of this to form one piece.

 

 
 
 
Die cut three of the largest flowers from Penned Flowers Dies from Basic White cardstock and colour these with Mango Melody Stampin' Blends or similar colour.
 
Unfortunately Mango Melody Blends are no longer available to purchase.

 
 
 

Create a slim-line card base and a layer measuring 1/4" smaller on two sides than your card front. 

Arrange the die cuts and adhere with Tombow Glue.

For embellishment, add a double bow and a few faceted gems.

Attach this to your card base with Dimensionals.
