I am popping in again today with two more cards to share. I had some time last night to get crafty so I whipped up a few cards. For this first card, I am playing along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge and The Color Throwdown.
I started with MFT Smooth White, Sno Cone, Banana Split, Wild Wisteria, Factory Green, and Persimmon card stocks. The card base is smooth white. I die cut the wild wisteria scallop panel with Blueprints 20. I stamped this panel using Damask Background stamp in Wild Wisteria premium ink. I ink distressed the edges with versamark.
Next, I die cut another wild wisteria panel using Modern Morocco Cover Up dienamics. I layered over the scallop background to create some interest and texture. I then die cut the peek a boo scalloped border from Blueprints 14 twice. I stamped these scalloped borders using Pinstripe Background Stamp in Wild Wisteria premium ink I lined the back of peek a boo edging with some sno cone card stock. I inked the edges with some versamark to add some depth and richness.
For the focal image I die cut the Damask Designs die namics in sno cone and stamped the coordinating image from Damask Designs stamp set using Sno Cone Premium Ink. I die cut the Pierced Oval Stax for my sentiment using smooth white. I stamped the sentiment from Out On A Limb stamp set using Licorice Black Hybrid Ink. I layered a double ended stitched flag behind it using Persimmon card stock that was die cut with Blueprints 2. I die cut the flower and leaves using Blueprints 12. I stamped the flower and leaves with Romantic Script Background stamp using versamark. I assembled and popped it up with a dimensional. I finished the card with a few sequins.
Card 2 ~ LOVE!
Card 2 is an extreme opposite from the first card. I went totally CAS on this one and had a whole lot of white space leftover at the end. I did not know what to do with so much white space! Yikes! I am playing along with this week's CAS(E) this Sketch, The Curtain Call inspiration challenge, and Colour Q!
The Curtain Call and Colour Q colors were so similar this week that I decided to combine these. I also decided to flip the sketch. I hope that is allowed! I started with MFT Wild Wisteria, Nightshift Blue, Razzle Berry, and Berrylicious card stocks. The card base is wild wisteria. I stamped this panel using Linen Background stamp in versamark. I chose versamark because I wanted it to be a soft texture. I was also trying to mimic the scarf texture from the inspiration picture. The smooth white panel I die cut with Blueprints 15 to get the stitched framing.
I die cut this panel with LOVE dienamics. I had to cut this panel with each additional color and trim the letters. When I glued the colored letters to the white panel I offset them a bit to give some white shadow drop letter effect. Love how that turned out. I die cut the "you" twice from Words of Gratitude dienamics using Nightshift Blue card stock. I glued these together for added stability and dimension. I finished the card with a trio of iridescent sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
