Have you seen the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder? It was part of the second Sale-A-Bration release. It’s free with a $50* Stampin Up purchase until March 31. If this embossing folder is not in your craft stash you need it. No, really you do. You can make quick and cute cards by simply embossing cardstock, but I was inspired to color the images by another fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator. So, here is my version.
Once I embossed my Whisper White cardstock I proceeded to add color to the floral images with the Stampin Blends. While I have many of them listed below in the Product List you can achieve the same results with just building color on top of an area you’ve colored with the same Stampin Blend to deepen the color. Here’s a close-up:
The Pretty Label and the card layer is Petal Pink cardstock. I always believed it had more of an orange tone and paired with the Grapefruit Grove Card base and I think you’ll agree with me.
I added the Calypso Coral Ombre ribbon and I believe it also works well with the Grapefruit Grove and Petal Pink cardstocks.
Did you know that one of the dies in the Needlepoint Elements Framelits makes little stitch marks? It doesn’t cut out that label – you’ll need the Pretty Label Punch to punch it out. Love that detail.
How to DIY:
- Grapefruit Grove cardbase: 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
- Petal Pink cardstock: 5 1/4″ X 4″
- Whisper White: 5″ X 3 3/4″
- Scrap piece of Petal Pink for the label.
- Stamp the word friend from the Needle & Thread stamp set using Flirty Flamingo ink pad
- Mount the Pretty Label with Stampin Dimensionals & add some pretty Share What You Love Artisan Pearls
