Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. Is anyone doing anything this weekend? I’ll be working all day today and tomorrow.
For today’s card I used one of the FREE stamp sets available from Sale-A-Bration. The Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set. There are lots of beautiful images and sentiments in this set. This set is available with a qualifying order of $100 or more. Here’s my card for today.
My upline Jaimie Babarczy is doing a challenge for our team this month. Each week she is giving us a sketch and color challenge. I used the colors, but switched the side of the sketch. This was a bit of a challenge for me since those that know me, know Crushed Curry is my least favorite color. Here’s this weeks challenge.
I started by adhering a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.
I stamped the outline floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored the flower in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the image to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock. I fussy cut the butterfly using my Paper Snips. I colored the butterflies body in and a part of the wing using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the butterfly to the card front, overlapping the stitched circle, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on a strip of Basic White cardstock in Night of Navy Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I colored a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Marker and added them to the card front.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front in Night of Navy Ink. I colored the image in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to the envelope flap.
