Hi Stampers, Welcome to my blog and another Happy Stampers Blog Hop! Each week our talented team share cards based on either a color or sketch challenge. Today we had a color challenge and boy was it a CHALLENGE! I had not received my new order from the 2016-1017 catalog and had a hard time deciding what existing stamp set to use. Then there was the color challenge…Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride and Emerald Envy. This one really stumped me! How about you, what card would you create using this combination of colors?
Here is the color challenge:
Stampin Up “Kinda Eclectic”
Here is the card recipe:
Card Base: Sweet Sugarplum 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at
Mat: Blushing Bride 4 x 5-1/4
Mat: Basic Black 3-7/8 x 5-1/8
Art Piece: Whisper White 3-3/4 x 5
Inks: Emerald Envy, Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride and Black
Stamp Sets: Kinda Eclectic, Timeless Textures and One Big Meaning
I stamped the leaves in Emerald Envy using the stamping off technique to get variations in my leaf colors. The polka dots are done in Blushing Bride with a stamp from Kinda Eclectic. Sweet Sugarplum was used along with the grid stamp from Timeless Textures to add more depth. The splatter stamp from Timeless Textures was stamped in black ink for the final background for the card. After all the stamping was done I put my mat and art piece layers onto my card base.
Art Piece:Whisper White 3/4 x 3-1/4 punched with the Triple Banner punch
Mat: Sweet Sugarplum 7/8 x 3-3/8 also punched with the Triple Banner punch.
After I made the sentiment I adhered it with dimensionals to add pop to the card.
Stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and punched with the coordination Elegant Butterfly Punch.
The bow: Sweet Sugarplum ruched ribbon adhered with a glue dot
I love little details so I just had to use my NEW Enamel shapes along with the pearls. I added some enamel shapes and pearls in clusters around my card for the finishing detail.
