Stampin’ Up Bright Wishes for Color Throwdown

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did anyone do anything interesting or fun?

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set and I joined in with the Color Throwdown Color Challenge #527.

Be sure to stop by the Color Throwdown and see what everyone has made and to play along. Here are their colors.  I just love Navy Blue and Green together.

I started with a piece of Vellum cardstock and stamped the Well from the Bright Wishes stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I colored the image in with my Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I did the coloring on the back of the Vellum, not on the embossed side.  Using my Big Shot, I cut the image out with my Rectangle Stitched  Framelits Dies.  I also cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock the same size as the rectangle to adhere under the Vellum image.

I cut a rectangle frame out in Old Olive cardstock using the same size framelit that I cut the Vellum image.  I adhered the Vellum image to the Very Vanilla cardstock using small spots of Snail so that you wouldn’t see it.  I adhered the Very Vanilla artwork and the Old Olive frame to a Night of Navy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Old Olive Linen Thread around the card front.  I made a bow separately and adhered it to the card front on the Linen Thread with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Very Vanilla card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the Well from the Bright Wishes stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the Well.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail then adhered it to the inside of the Thick Very Vanilla card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the Well image from the Bright Wishes stamp set on the front of the envelope and colored it in the same as I did for the card front.  It came out a little darker since I colored the card front on the backside of the Vellum.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping.
