Seaside Spray Colour Challenge Week 2

Seaside Spray Colour Challenge - Stampin' Up! Lovely You Note Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Hello and welcome to Week 2 of my Seaside Spray Colour Challenge! If you missed Week 1 you can find the blog post here. This week the colour combination is: Seaside Spray, Grey Granite and Early Espresso. I think this is one of the only times I realised that I had used this combination before! You can see that project using the In Good Taste Suite here.

Seaside Spray Colour Challenge 2 – the inspiration…

My inspiration for this project was the thought that we often get stuck making the same size and shape of card over and over. This is probably because we are on auto-pilot – we know the dimensions off by heart and it just happens. However, Stampin’ Up! have packs of note cards & envelopes (which are smaller than the standard A6 size) and also some really cute little 3″ x 3″ envelopes.

I decided to use one of the 3″ x 3″ envelopes to make a little note card…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from a piece of Grey Granite cardstock measuring 3″ x 6″ and scored at 3″ along the long edge.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Stamp Set, I stamped the foliage image repeatedly around the card front in Early Espresso ink.

The sentiment is also stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Grey Granite cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched Shapes Dies.

A larger circle is cut from Seaside Spray cardstock using the same die set. These circles are layered together and adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
