Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons for Color Throwdown

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  For those of you that have today off for Presidents Day, I hope you’re enjoying your long weekend.  It was actually a beautiful weekend here, the weather was beautiful for this time of year.  Now the snow and ice start again.

For today’s card I used one of the new beautiful Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that’s available as a bundle with Designer Series Paper FREE with a $100.00 order.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Stamp Set.  I did not use the DSP for my card today that comes with the bundle, but I will soon.  Take a look.

I joined in with the Color Throwdown challenge #530.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their challenge.

I started with a Smoky Slate card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink randomly around.  I then stamped the small star cluster image from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink around to fill in empty spaces.  I adhered the artwork to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail.  I then adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the card front to a Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the soon to be available from the Sale-A-Bration Coordination collection, Story Label Punch (available March 1st), I punched a label out in Melon Mambo cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set (Free Sale-A-Bration item) in Versamark Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I sprinkled it immediately with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to the label and trimmed the ends to the label.  I added a Heart Epoxy Droplet, which I colored with my Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend Marker (that was the closest to Melon Mambo I could get).  I adhered the label to the right of my artwork with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the two corners of a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I added a couple of the star clusters from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by the flowers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail and adhered it to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set on the front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Melon Mambo Ink and the star cluster in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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

To celebrate this fun occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, we’re offering a specially-designed March kit and a FREE STAMP SET. Oh, yes. You read that right. In March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit.

There has never been a better time to give Paper Pumpkin a try. And because it’s our sixth birthday celebration, we’ll be pulling out all the stops. You’ll get an adorable kit, a special box, and most importantly, you’ll get TWO stamp sets instead of one.
$20 for a Paper Pumpkin kit is always a steal, but in March the deal is even better! There has never been a better time for you to join Paper Pumpkin.

Because it’s our birthday, we decided to create a kit that is perfect for making birthday cards!
The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
