Petal Parade meets Just Add Ink

January 29, 2014

The current challenge at Just Add Ink is a sketch challenge.  JAICardSketch001

I just love this sketch and knew straight away that I was going to use the Petal Parade stamp set and the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper.  Both of these items are available free to you with a qualifying order from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

I embossed Whisper White card using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (also available free with a qualifying order from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue).  I punched a 2-1/2″ Circle from the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, attached it to a larger circle of Basic Black card cut with one of the Circle Framelit Dies before adding it to the embossed card.  I wrapped the Whisper White card with Pool Party 1/2″ Seam Binding and tied a knot before attaching the Whisper White card to scored and folded Pool Party card.013

I stamped the larger image from the Petal Parade stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crisp Cantaloup ink and punched it out using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.  I stamped the smaller image from the same stamp set onto Whisper White card using Summer Starfuit ink and punched it out using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch.  I attached both images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, over the ribbon and each other.  Lastly I added a Basic Rhinestone to the centre of each of the flower images.015

On the inside I stamped the leafy image using Summer Starfruit ink.  I attached a strip of Basic Black card to the Designer Series Paper and attached it over the stamped image.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Sassy Salutations stamp set using Crisp Cantaloup ink.

I have to say that the pattern I used from the Designer Series Paper wasn’t one that I liked at first, but it works so well in combination with the other colours and of course I think lot’s of white space helps keep it balanced.  What do you think?

Bye for now,

Kris

    How effective is that black dsp circle combo…very striking! Love how the colours of the other two pull the colours from the black. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.
