Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for November. Our color choices for this month are Bumblebee, Poppy Parade, and Shaded Spruce. I'm so glad you are here.
This was not my favorite color combination. With that said, it's a challenge, and I did it. I even like my card!
The card base is Shaded Spruce that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Stamp across the top and the bottom in Shaded Spruce ink using the largest poinsettia in the Poinsettia Petals stamp set.
The Shaded Spruce designer paper is from the Regals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. It's measurements are 3 x 5 1/2. You'll also need 2 strips of the Bumblebee paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. They are cut to 1/2 x 5 1/2. Glue the strips just tucked under each side of the Shaded Spruce paper. Glue to the card front.
Cut three stems from Poppy Parade card stock and color all with Wink of Stella.
Stamp all three sizes of the poinsettia in Poppy Parade on Whisper White card stock. Color in with Wink of Stella. If you color quickly some of the color in the petals may spread. You can also press the Poppy Parade pad lid to get some ink on it. Paint with the Wink of Stella brush.
Stamp three of the leaves in Shaded Spruce ink and color these in the same way you colored the petals.
Cut out all pieces with the Poinsettia dies. Adhere the layers of the poinsettia with dimensionals. Use a Bone Folder to curl the petals, some up and some down. Stamp the center of the flower in Bumblebee. Fussy cut and glue down. Color this with the Wink of Stella also.
Lay out all of the pieces to determine where you would like them to go. Adhere the leaves to the poinsettia from the back. Add the Poppy Parade stems to the card front. I used glue dots for this. They are adhered only at the end of the stems. Glue down the poinsettia.
The saying is from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set. Stamp in Shaded Spruce on white. Cut this out with the Ornate Frames dies. Add with dimensionals.
Add some of the Bumblebee enamel dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.
The saying on the inside is from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. Stamp in Shaded Spruce. Stamp two layers of the smallest poinsettia on Whisper White in Poppy Parade. Color in with the Poppy Parade Blends Combo. The center is colored in the Mango Melody Blends Combo (Dark). Stamp and color the leaf in Shaded Spruce. Color in with the Shaded Spruce Blends Combo (Light).
That's it. I do love a good challenge. I'm anxious to see the other samples using these colors. Take the rest of the hop with me. Next up is Nicolle. You will love her card sample.
