Stampin’ Up! Note Cards….

The challenge over at Late Nite Stampers is to creste a card, 3-D Project, srcapbook page, etc using the colours of –

Aren’t these lovely colours?  I know myself, I can’t get enough of Pink Pirouette & have to stop myself from using it everytime I go to create a card.  Seeing these colours brings so many possibilities to mind, but sat myself down & created a small set of Note Cards.

This challenge come at the right moment as I am out of Note Cards.  I don’t know about anyone else, but I LOVE these little cards.  I would quiet happily sit all day & create sets of these.  They come in so handy too as I use them for everything & always have a stack sitting in my envelope drawer….

I created 6 in all, 2 in Lucky Limeade, 2 in Pink Pirouette & 2 in Rich Razzleberry.  I thought about doing more, but I like to mix them up a bit, so was happy with the 6.  I also brought the 3 colours together with the inks.

Class….

Our card last Friday at Crafty Creations was to do the Technique – Basic Masking.  I choice to go with Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery & Pink Pirouette– not colours I would normally put together, but I am really loving the final result.  Mind you, when I started the card, I had no idea where I was going, only knowing that I wanted to use the stamps I had sitting on my desk.


Inside Card….

I am also finding myself going back to the softer colours which I think are sadly being neglected – by me anyhow!

Measurements –
Base Card – Chocolate Chip – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Certainly Celery – 5 3/8″ x 3 5/8″ or 14cm x 9.5cm

Layer 5 – Whisper White – 2 7/8″ x 2 1/4″ or 7cm x 5.5cm

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Summer Solstice, En Francis, Short & Sweet
Ink – Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery
Cardstock – Whisper White, Chocoate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Glossy
DSP – Neutrals Designer Series Paper
Ribbon – 5/8″ Satin – Certainly Celery
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, 2-Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Rhinestones, Sponge, Dotto, Mni-Glue Dots

I adhered a piece of Ribbon across the middle of the DSP, tucked ends under, adhered to the piece of Certainly Celery & finally to the Base Card – Chocolate Chip, all with Snail Adhesive.

The piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock was torn along the bottom, sponged across the tear & around the edges & adheredd over the top of the Ribbon using Snail Adhesive.

I stamped my flower image onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Pink Pirouette Ink, stamped again onto a scrap piece of paper, cut it out & used this one piece for my Mask.  While the stamp was inked in Pink Pirouette, I again stamped onto a scrap piece of Glossy Cardstock, cut out & set aside.  This was by accident as I didn’t realise it was glossy until I was cutting it out, but decided to leave it the way it was.

I stamped the leaf images around the flower & created 2 Masks for the leaves.

After applying Dotto to the back of my Masks, I adhered them over the matching images prior to inking my background stamp in Chocolate Chip, stamping off twice & then stamping onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock & over the masked images.

This piece was adhered to the piece of Certainly Celery & finally to the Base Card.  I adhered the Glossy image to the top of the stamped image with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added some Dazzling Diamonds to the middle with my 2-Way Glue Pen & popped a Rhinestone in the middle.

I tied a bow with the Ribbon & adhered to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.  The sentiment was stamped onto the bottom of the piece of Pink Pirouette in Chocolate Chip Ink.

Until next time, have a great day!

Technique Class….

One of our techniques last sunday arvo was the “Reverse Spotlighting“.  what a fun, fun technique & we all enjoyed creating this card.  Not only was the technique used on the card, but we created an “Easel Card” as well.

Bottom of Easel…
Aren’t the colours gorgeous on this card.  This is the first time, this stamp set has been inked, but think it will be seeing a lot more ink somehow, as it stamps such beautiful images.
Have a great day!
