Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for March. I'm so happy you are here. You might have just come from Amy's post. I know you loved her project. Please visit everyone on the hop. You'll love all the great ideas!
You might be aware that each year Stampin' Up! has 5 new In Colors and 5 In Colors that retire. This month we are all about the 2018-2020 In Colors that are saying good bye.
I love these colors so much. I sure will miss them. We do have until the end of May to enjoy them. Let me warn you though, these colors will sell out before their retirement date. Our task today is to choose one of these colors and make a monochromatic card. I am using Lovely Lipstick.
This card of course starts with a base of Lovely Lipstick that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. We are using the To a Wild Rose stamp set. Stamp around the edges of the front with the detailed flower stamp. The flower in this set has three steps, an outline, a background, and a detailed stamp. Stamp in Lovely Lipstick. It's so much easier to match the stamping of these flowers if you place them on the clear block in the same orientation. Look for a place that's the same on each stamp and put that at the same place. For me, I found a petal that juts out on each stamp. I used that for reference.
The next layer is Lovely Lipstick. Cut it to 2 9/16 x 3 3/4. Run this layer through a die cutting machine with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder. Glue to the rectangle. Add these layers to the front of the card with dimensionals.
Stamp the flower on a piece of Whisper White. I stamped the outline in Lovely Lipstick. Next the more detailed stamp. Finally stamp the background stamp. Stamp this one off on a piece of white first. Sponge around the outside of the flower. Cut out the flower with the Wild Rose dies. Glue the flower. There will need to be some dimensionals where the flower overlaps the rectangle.
Stamp hello on Whisper White in Lovely Lipstick. Sponge it. Fussy cut the saying. Glue.
For the inside, the saying is from the To a Wild Rose stamp set. Stamp another flower as on the front and cut out. Cut a Lovely Lipstick sprig from the Rose dies to add jutting out from behind the flower. The To a Wild Rose Bundle is a great value with a 10% value.
I also made a card without the sponging. I'm not sure we can really call this a monochromatic card. How do you like it?
Let me know which one you like best!
Thanks for stopping by. Tina is next. Don't forget to go to every post on the hop. You'll see some great ideas!
