Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #660. Today we are using the colors Flirty Flamingo, Seaside Spray, and So Saffron.
If you haven't seen the new Stampin' Up! catalog, you should. There are so many beautiful stamps, dies, bundles, ribbons, embellishments, and papers. If you need one and you don't already have a demonstrator, let me know and I'll send you one. Today I'm using the Quiet Meadow bundle and the Meadow dies. Here are the stamp set and dies.
These colors reminded me of a sunset and that's what I attempted to make. I think it turned out quite well.
Start with a base of So Saffron 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.
Take a piece of So Saffron cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. Use Blending Brushes to add color to this layer. Begin with So Saffron, then add some of the Seaside Spray. Finally add some of the Flirty Flamingo. With each color start slow and build up the color to what you want. You can always add more color. Spritz this layer with water with one of our Spritzers and let it dry. This will lift the color in places and add more interest to the card.
Using the Meadow dies, cut two of the flowers in Basic Black. Your best bet is to use the Adhesive Sheets to back the black card stock. That way you'll get great coverage for adding to the saffron paper. Cut a butterfly as well.
Use the Scalloped Contours dies to cut out a section of this layer. Use the third rectangle in. This will cut through some of the black flower stems.
Add glue to the outside part of the layer and glue to the front of the card.
Add black twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack around the layer. Now add Foam Adhesive Sheets to the back of the cut out. Place it right back in the hole on the card front.
Stamp the word LOVE in Memento Black on Seaside Spray and cut out the tag using the Meadow dies. Make a bow of the Black Twine. Tie in the tag and add it all to the card with a rolled up glue dot.
Finish the front with some of the Matte Black Dots. Add the butterfly where you want it.
Here's the inside of the card. The saying is from Quiet Meadow.
Thanks so much for joining me today. I would love to be your demonstrator if you don't already have one. Let me earn your business!
