What a sweet Color Challenge over at the Global Design Project! Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate are so pretty together… Spring is in the air.
Here’s a quick “can do” for you:
The Basic Gray card base is A-2 – 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″;
The Whisper White second layer is 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″,
The Daffodil Delight polka dot layer is 2 1/2″ X 4 1/8″,
The scalloped edgelit is cropped using Smoky Slate card stock and I cut it just enough to tuck behind the patterned paper.
To get those little blooms into the right spot, I measured up 2 1/2″ from the base of my Whisper White layer and knowing that each “scallop” is one inch wide, I made sure the dots were an inch apart starting from the center out.
Stamp the center flower stem first, then stamp a stem on each side. Use your pencil marks as a guide and… the stamp is photopolymer, so you’ll see your marks easily.
Add your flower, which I stamped with Daffodil Delight ink.
A few Whisper White Candy Dots and some Basic Gray Baker’s Twine from a past Paper Pumpkin Kit is all the embellishment needed.
Stampin’ Up! Supplies Used:
Card Stock – Basic gray, Whisper White, Smoky Slate and Brights Designer Series Paper Stack;
Stamp Set – Flower Patch from Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog;
Today’s post is for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challengethis week. Lynn came up with a beautiful combination of soft and classic, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and an absolute favorite of mine, Night of Navy.
Do you remember those cute “Flower Fair” Framelits Dies from the Annual Catalog? My “Big Shot” did all the work to create this Clean and Simple “Thank You”. A few flowers, a few leaves and a “White Perfect Accent” embellishment… done!
That strip of Blushing Bride and Whisper White floral pattern is from the “Love Blossoms” DSP stack… it added just a little frame to balance the flowers.
Welcome to the March Pals Blog Hop celebrating spring. This month we are featuring spring related projects for Mother’s Day, Easter or any other occasion that celebrates winter coming to an end… finally!
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Michelle Gleeson at Stampin Mojoon the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.
Here's my tribute to Spring… flowers, flowers and more flowers. Stampin' Up!'s beautiful "Painted Petals" stamp set is just stunning. The stamps are so detailed that the flowers really do look as though they were painted with watercolors. These note cards are 3 1/2" X 5" and my color inspiration came from the "Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper".
Rose Red Beautiful Blooms
Pool Party Tulips (I just love these)
Perfect Plum Roses (Exotic)
Crushed Curry Tulips (these tulips are so cute)
So get yourself some "Painted Petals" and create some pretty painted note cards.
Flowers, flowers and more flowers! Another post featuring flowers. I want flowers and lots of sunshine… and I'm writing this post during yet another snow storm.
As you can see, I was playing around with more patterned paper today mixing up patterns and shapes. I even did a little embossing.
Although this card looks busy, there's really not much to it. The patterned layers are from "Best Year Ever" Designer Series Paper; part of Stampin' Up!'s Sale A Bration product line and free with a $50.00 purchase until the end of the month.
Apothecary Arts and Flower Fair Framelits cropped the labels and flowers.
"Thank You" is from the new "Painted Petals" stamp set.
Inspired by the patterned paper, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana is a great color palette to show off the pretty "Flower Patch" flowers.
Basic Gray is a wonderful neutral to ground the mix and no embellishment needed here, except for a touch of Calypso Coral Baker's Twine.
So, pull out some bright, sunny patterned paper, crop some layers and create something wonderful!
My name is Debbie Crowley and I live in Central New Jersey. Although I very much enjoy card making, I am fond of cooking. I am "Mom" to two adult children, Alison and Denis and enjoy visiting with my two grand dogs, Buddy and Lucky.
It’s my pleasure to share my paper crafting with you for your enjoyment and inspiration.
