A touch of Blue
I have been creating cards for my April Class which will be based around the Urban District Product Suite, so you have been seeing the cards I am designing with that class in mind. Some of these cards will make it into the class and some won’t. However, it is fun seeing what I can come design using the stamps and co-ordinating products.
For this card I embossed Very Vanilla card once more using the Hexagon Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Basic Black card. I attached a piece of Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper to Basic Black card and then to the card front. I embossed a smaller piece of Very Vanilla card once more using the Hexagon Embossing Folder, attached it to Basic Black card and then the card front, using dimensionals under the lower portion. I stamped the hammer image from the Nailed It stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out using the matching Build It Framelits Die. I used my Basic Gray and Pacific Point Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen to colour the image. Before attaching it to the card front I stamped the cute little smiley face onto the hammer because I wanted the card to have a fun feel to it. I stamped “nailed it” from the Nailed It stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black in and cut it out using the smallest oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. I stamped the nail image from the same stamp set onto the right hand side of the greeting using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I attached the greeting to a Basic Black scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and then the card front with a dimensional underneath the lower right hand side.
To decorate the inside I stamped “congratuations” from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I attached a narrow strip of Basic Black card behind one long edge of a strip of the same designer series paper I used on the card front. I attached the designer series paper to the stamped Very Vanilla card and then attached the panel to the inside of the card.
I think the pop of blue colour on this card really sets it off, what about you?
Bye for now,
The hostess code for January has closed, stay tuned for the February Code.
