Inkspire. Create. Challenge 35

February 1, 2019

I spent some time using my blends on the flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set recently.  I thought it was about time, I used some of the gorgeous stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue.  Anyway, I had the images stamped and cut out and then I saw the challenge at Inkspire. Create. which suited my images perfectly.   So I embossed Whisper White card using one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders, a pair of embossing folders which has been sadly neglected for too long.  However, before embossing the Whisper White card, I attached a strip of Highland Heather.  This kind of “welds” the cards together and creates a unique look.  The panel is attached to scored and folded Highland Heather card.  I attached the flower which is coloured using the Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from the Beautiful Day stamp set onto Whisper White card using Highland Heather ink and attached it to the card front, partially over the flower, using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed a narrow strip of Whisper White card using the same Petal Pair Embossing Folder.  The embossed card has a narrow strip of Highland Heather attached to one long edge before the panel is attached across the bottom of Whisper White card.

This is kind of a simple card but I love it.  So much so that I used the rest of the flowers I had coloured to create three more cards.  The colours are – Real Red, with Real Red, Old Olive and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends – Flirty Flamingo with Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends – Daffodil Delight with Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiments on the Real Red and Flirty Flamingo cards also comes from the Beautiful Day stamp set.

I am getting a collection of sets of cards which I will box up and have ready to give as gifts to my family and friends.

Bye for now,
