SU Ornate Garden Card

Hello and welcome! Recently, Stampin’ Up! have been issuing weekly Colour Challenges to demonstrators. I’m a little bit behind but here is one I have taken part in…

The challenge involves making a project using any combination of the colours shown. I decided to use Lovely Lipstick and Gorgeous Grape. Here is my project…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a 10.2 x 14.6 cm layer of Lovely Lipstick cardstock. The main card front is a 10 x 14.4 cm layer of Whisper White cardstock.

Onto the card front I have heat embossed the gorgeous, large image from the Ornate Style Stamp Set using Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (white would work equally well). I have then used a Sponge Brayer to colour over the image; using both Lovely Lipstick and Gorgeous Grape inks to create a blended effect.

The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies. The frame is cut out of Lovely Lipstick cardstock using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. These two pieces are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few of the Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.
