Yesterday I shared a colorful, floral card I made with Stampin’ Blends and the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper. Today I’m sharing a colorful, floral card I made with Stampin’ Blends and the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper. Deja vu? While I used a similar technique, the cards are very different – different flowers, different measurements and different colors. Oh, fun! If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it here. Here’s my card for today:
This card features rich, Fall tones and a rustic appeal with a burst of Linen Thread. I cropped a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper and then cut that piece into 1″ strips. The black-and-white paper gave me a canvas to color with my Stampin’ Blends. Here’s a look at the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!’s 2022 Annual Catalog:
Like yesterday’s card, I colored the space behind the flowers with Stampin’ Blends. While coloring the flowers can really make them pop, coloring the backgrounds can be effective, too (and fun). Here’s a closer look at how these panels came back together:
I stamped “I’m so fond of you” from the Fond of Autumn stamp set with Cajun Craze ink on Thick Basic White cardstock and cropped it with a Stylish Shapes circle. I popped that up over two banners (also from the Stylish Shapes dies and a messy bow of Linen Thread for a rustic look. The banners from the Stylish Shapes dies weren’t long enough to give me the length I wanted on either side of the circle, so I snipped them in the middle and added a little space below the circle. Voila!
I used four Stampin’ Blends to color the panels on this card: Medium Deep Natural Tone (SU300), Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral and Pale Papaya. I love this mix of browns and warm rusty tones. If you like this mix of colors as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
Stamps: Fond of Autumn Papers: Perfectly Penciled, Crumb Cake, Thick Basic White Inks: Cajun Craze, Stampin’ Blends (SU300, Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya) Accessories: Stylish Shapes, Linen Thread, Stampin’ Dimensionals
