I love Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers and am always inspired to try new color combinations when I see how wonderful they look together in our papers. Today’s card for CAS(E) This Sketch has no Designer Series Paper, but the color is inspired by a beautiful paper. The sketch for this card is this week’s layout at CAS(E) This Sketch. Here’s my card:
- Handwritten. This card started with the new Handwritten background stamp. I love these fonts and the wonderful mix of words in this stamp – many sentiments in many languages. Here’s a look at the Handwritten stamp: I paired the swirly sentiments in the Handwritten stamp with the bold, print font from Wood Words. Quick tip: When I combine fonts, I make sure they are starkly different from one another so that the style difference is obviously intentional. While the Wood Words stamp set and coordinating dies are carrying forward into the new catalog, the bundled pricing goes away on May 31 – if you want it (and I know you do), get it now! Here’s a look at Wood Words:
- Coloring Technique. It’s a technique as old as time (or as old as markers and stamps). To create this unique combination of colors on this card, I simply colored stripes onto the Handwritten background stamp with Stampin’ Write Markers (Tranquil Tide, Mint Macaron and Pacific Point), gave the stamp a big huff and then stamped it down. Here’s a closer look at the effect of coloring directly on the stamp:
- A Unique Color Combination. I often turn to Designer Series Paper for great color inspiration. The unique color combination on this card is inspired by one of the pages from the Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. Can you find the page?(It’s the second page on the bottom row). This mix of greens and bright blue is mesmerizing to me. While this page features Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam and Pacific Point, the mix of shade inspired me to create a similar combination for my project. If you love this combination of Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide and Pacific Point, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Handwritten, Wood Words Papers: Tranquil Tide, Mint Macaron, Pacific Point Inks: Stampin’ Write Markers (Tranquil Tide, Mint Macaron, Pacific Point), Whisper White Craft Ink Accessories: Stitched Label Framelits, Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the CAS(E) This Sketch site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge. The challenge goes live at 10am EST.
