How to make a fabulous foliage ‘Hello’ card

Hello and welcome to my October Colour Challenge! I’m a little behind schedule but I think this is worth the wait! My randomly selected colour this month is Pretty Peacock and, as always, the first project is monochrome. Let me show you how to make a fabulous foliage ‘Hello’ card…

I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy bundle. This is an early release product from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue and will be available to customers from 3rd November 2020. The order number for the bundle is 156228 so make a note of that ready to shop when the time comes! If you can’t wait until then, join my team and get hold of it straight away! For more details on that, click here.

Let’s make it… Quite Curvy Foliage Card

Start with a (standard A6) Whisper White Thick card base. Follow this with a layer of Pretty Peacock cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. Next, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 9.5 x 13.9 cm to form the main card front.

Onto the card front, stamp the foliage image around the edges using Pretty Peacock ink. Colour in the leaves using the Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Combo. Top tip: use the dark pen to create shadows where leaves overlap one another to help the images stand out and look more realistic!

Cut out a foliage element from Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Curvy Dies and adhere to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment (I have used ‘Hello’ from the Quite Curvy stamp set) in Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Cut out the sentiment using the relevant circle from the Stitched Shapes Die Set. Adhere this over the foliage element using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What a gorgeous card to let someone know that you are thinking of them. ‘Just because’ cards are my favourite!

CAS Challenge #339

Today I’d like to share with you a card I created for the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #339. You can find details of the challenge and view the Design Team entries and more here. Why not pop by and take a look once you’ve finished here?

This week is a Colour Challenge featuring Terracotta Tile, So Saffron and Pretty Peacock. I hope you like what I’ve done with this combination.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Pretty Peacock cardstock and I have layered a piece of Pretty Peacock DSP. This DSP is gorgeous and is available in all the Stampin’ Up! colours! In case you can’t quite read it from the picture, it says ‘Inspire. Create. Share. Ink. Stamp. Repeat.’ My thoughts exactly!

I have then used the Stampin’ Up! Stitched All Around stamp set and coordinating Stitched Labels dies to stamp, cut out and layer my sentiment piece in the challenge colours. As per the challenge rules I have included a small piece of Whisper White cardstock to help the sentiment to stand out.

The small heart from the die set has been cut out in So Saffron and Terracotta Tile cardstock and Pretty Peacock DSP and adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is provided by small pieces of Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon.
