Today’s card has been taken from one I saw on Pinterest by Annette Elliot. I just loved the colours & the simple layout, although I have changed mine a little as you do. Thank you Annette for your inspiration.
I’ve used the sweet “A Little Lace” Stamp Set & one that I am wondering why I haven’t played with more as I am loving it. I can see a few more projects coming with this set.
Did you know the Medium Daisy Punch fits the large daisy in this set? Isn’t that fantastic?Did you notice I’ve used 4 of the retiring 2019-2021 In Colours – Terracotta Tile, Purple Posy Cardstocks, Purple Posy & Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends plus Pretty Peacock Ink? Oh not to mention the Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems to complete my card.
Both the Classic Label Punch (one of my favourite Punches) & the Layering Ovals Dies are retiring too. Check them out in the Last Chance Product List.
Actually, I’ve used a lot of retiring products to create my card today as I’ve just realised the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder is on the list too!
I am well & truly playing catch up now as this is my 2nd post for today!
It’s Day #2 of Seaside Spray In Colour which is one of my favourites. Do you have a favourite?
I’ve been digging out a few neglected Stamp Sets from my shelves & playing with them once again.
Today it is To a Wild Rose’s turn. It’s been teamed up with Blushing Bride, Just Jade plus Seaside Spray. Not forgetting Basic White of course.
I must admit, I am loving these colours & may have to play some more with this colour combination.
The flower is a 3 step image & was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off twice, once & then direct onto the Cardstock. I filled in the gaps with the little image from the same set which I must admit has been stamped in Petal Pink BUT only because I picked up the wrong colour. This will teach me not to put Inks away when I have finished stamping with them, but it does blend in.
I then randomly chopped this stamped piece into 3’s prior to adhering to a piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock, Basic White & then to the Seaside Spray Base Card.
The sentiment was stamped in Seaside Spray Ink onto Basic White, die cut with the small oval from Layering Ovals Dies & adhered to a Just Jade scallop oval which was die cut from the same Dies prior to adhering to Card Front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete the card, I randomly adhered 3 x Seaside Spray Butterfly Gems to the Card Front.
Well this didn’t happen yesterday instead spent the day in bed with Vertigo. I know what I would have sooner been doing lol.
Pretty Peacock screams the ocean – to me anyhow – & this was the perfect time to create a card for males, females or kids.
It was also the perfect time to dig out my very neglected Whale Done Stamp Set & Whale Builder Punch.
Of course when you have these 2 products, you have to do a little embossing which means I embossed a piece of Basic White Cardstock with the gorgeous Seabed 3D Embossing Folder before adhering to the Pretty Peacock Base Card.
The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set, stamped in Pretty Peacock Ink prior to being die cut with an oval from the Layering Ovals Dies. It was then adhered to a Pretty Peacock scallop oval die cut with the same Dies.
The whale was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Pretty Peacock Ink, punched with the Whale Builder Punch prior to adhering to the side of the oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I am loving the simple layout & colours of this card! I hope you do too.
