Today I have for you a fairly easy card, one that spotlights a few new Stampin' Up! products from the Annual Catalog that went live on June 1.
The stars of the card include the darling stamp set, Love What You Do, which can be found on page 177. Also featured are inks in two of the new In Colors, Blueberry Bushel and Pineapple Punch. I love the combination of the two colors, a medium blue and a very appealing yellow.
I've seen lots of cards created with this stamp set. I find that the flowers are usually colored in somehow, either with the smallest blotch stamp from the set, or handcolored in some fashion. I, on the other hand, chose to utilize the flowers in their sheer simplicity of line art.
Keep reading for the Supplies List and Instructions to re-create this easy, but standout card.
Blueberry Bushel cardstock
Whisper White cardstock
Blueberry Bushel ink
Pineapple Punch ink
Love What You Do stamp set (page 177)
Blue dot embellishments
Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.
On a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock, randomly stamp the open berries branches in Blueberry Bushel ink -- STAMPING OFF ONTO SCRAP PAPER FIRST! Fill in the empty spaces of this piece with the solid berries branches in Pineapple Punch ink -- DON'T STAMP OFF FIRST; OTHERWISE THIS COLOR IS TOO LIGHT.
Adhere this piece to the card base.
Stamp the large splotch in full strength Pineapple Punch ink onto a 2 3/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Over the yellow, stamp the trio of flowers in Blueberry Bushel ink. Adhere this piece to a 3" x 3 1/2" piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock. Using Stampin' Dimensionals, attach this piece to the card, lifting it up a bit from the center point.
On a 1 3/4" x 1 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the smaller splotch in Pineapple Punch, followed by the sentiment over it in Blueberry Bushel. Adhere this to a 1 7/8" x 1 5/8" piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock. Add two Stampin' Dimensionals to JUST THE BOTTOM PORTION of this piece, and overlapping the larger piece, attach it to the card. (Since the larger piece is already popped up with Dimensionals, the top portion of the smaller piece simply lies atop the larger portion.)
Add three blue dots to the background.
Another gorgeous card! I love the brightness of these colors; makes me think it is time to replace my inkpads! That yellow sure pops! I love how adding the 3 blue dots adds a bit of interest; I love adding pearls or rhinestones to mine (I was a magpie in a previous life; I love bling!ReplyDelete
