Happy Sunday! It’s time for a new Challenge at the Paper Players. Claire is our hostess this week. She created a fun, versatile sketch. Have fun with it and join us over at the Paper Players Challenge Blog.
My card today is a Sneak Peek of the new Color & Contour Bundle which is in Stampin’ Up!’s upcoming Annual Catalog.
Here’s how my card came together…
- The Poppy Parade card base is a top fold standard A-2 card base. Cut it 11 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and score at 5 1/2″.
- I used the large scalloped frame die from the Scalloped Contours Dies to create the Basic White layer. The Die is sized perfectly to create an easy and fun layer for any A-2 card design.
- The striped layer is cut 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″ and lays perfectly inside the large scalloped frame die.
- I stayed with the sketch this week and cropped a Basic White oval with one of my Layering Ovals Dies.
- On a small piece of Basic White card stock, stamp the base of the flower with Soft Suede Ink, then stamp the flower image in Flirty Flamingo ink.
- The center of the flower is shaded with a Dark So Saffron Blend.
- I cropped the flower with the matching die.
- I placed the flower where I wanted it on my oval (no glue) and placed the leaf stamp over the flower (no ink on the leaf stamp). This gave me a visual of how the leaf would look under the flower.
- While the flower was still in place, I inked the stamp with Granny Apple Green and just before I stamped the leaf image, I removed the flower.
- I attached the flower and stamped the sentiment.
- The yellow resin dot added just the right amount of embellishment.
- The Poppy Parade horizontal cardstock strip is 1/4″ x 3 3/8″ and anchors the oval nicely.
- I attached the finished oval with Dimensionals.
Thank you, Claire. I had fun with this sketch!
So, cut a few layers, crop an oval, add a simple watercolor stamped image, a little resin dot and create something to link up with us over at the Paper Players. We would love to see what you come up with. Click over to the Paper Players Challenge Blog for more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.
…the only limitation is your imagination!
