A fun color combination for GDP097

The Global Design Project has a great color combination for us this week. It is Berry Burst, Wild Wasabi, and Crumb Cake.  Be sure you hop over to Global design Project and see all the fab. inspiration the design team has for us this week!  I think you will be quite impressed with what they came up with.  Don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom and see all the wonderful creations by those playing along.

This lovely color combination is quite vestal. And should be kept in mind for all seasons. It makes beautiful summer flowers, awesome fall leaves, and would be wonderful for a modern Christmas Card!

I decided to pull out a stamp I had not used in a while. Defiantly Dahlia. This is a large background stamp that is us

I thought berry burst would be the perfect color for this sweet flower! And of course, I made another square card with it!!! I paired the Dahlia with a sentiment in the Climbing Orchids stamp set. I made three versions of the card for y’all today. The first two are the Global Design color combination. The third was a happy accident 😜

  • The Dahlia was stamped in Berry Burst on Shimmery White paper. You can’t really tell in the picture. But, this paper gives the stamped images a beautiful finish.
  • The thinking of you was stamped in Wild Wasabi.
  • The third step was to add the layers and ribbon

  • The Dahlia was stamped in Berry Burst again.
  • Then I used a baby wipe to add texture to the flower.
  • Next using another baby wipe I added Crumb Cake.

  •  The Dahlia was stamped in Basic Gray. You can see little spots of Berry Burst. That’s because I did not clean my stamp before reinking. I was planning on using Berry Burst, but picked up Basic Gray.
  • This one was so pretty just the way it was. That I decided to keep it extra simple and not add a bow
  • I really love how the Basic Gray picks up the detail of this stamp

The final cards are 5 1/2 by 5 1/2.  The Shimmery white layer is 4 1/8 by 4 1/8.  Then each layer is built out from there.  The two Wild Wasabi cards the layers are 4 1/8 , 4 3/8, 5, and the 5 1/2 card base.  The Basic Gray card layers are 41/8, 41/4, 5, and the 5 1/2 card base.

Crafty Friends! 

My Stampin’ Up! friends are amazing! They are full of kindness and compassion.  Each one of them brings there own sence of happy to this world! This is my favorite part of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is the friendships I have made. And the friendships that have grown stronger through stamping!!! It just makes my heart full!  Recently one of my Stampin’ Up! friends , Andrea sent me a card in the mail that she knew I loved. We are both part of the InKing Royalty. Brian King’s group!!! The best group ever!!! Anyway, Brian had a great little challenge for us in our InKing Royalty Facebook Group. The challenge was to make a card each day for 15 days! This challenge was so much fun and filled me with new ideas.  So, Andrea posted this card one of the days. I commented on how much I loved the card!  And guess what??? She sent me the card with the sweetest note inside!!! Is that not the nicest thing ever!! 

  • The background is from color theory paper! 
  • The chair and waves are from the seasonal layers dies
  • The sun is from stiched shapes dies and a few banners

There is so much to love about this card!  Here’s my top 3 reasons I love it!!!

  1.  The happy mood of the card!!! 
  2. The creative way Andrea used her dies. She fliped one to make waves. And her sun is just super smart! 
  3. There is no sentiment on tge outside! This card is just perfect standing alone as it is.  She used the inside of the card for a sentiment and a sweet note! Just perfect

Ink play with color insperation from Hacking the Color Wheel #hackingthecolorwheel

I hope each of you had a wonderful 4th of July! I spent my day working on a “mood” color swatch journal.  I actually made the journal. I have not put the cover on it yet. But, I have the pages bound together. And journal a little.  I am taking an art journaling class that is all about the Color Wheel. The class has been lots of fun! And I am learning so much. #hackingthecolorwheel. Today’s card is the result of my first page color combination in the journal.  This color combination is from a magazine page the teacher was using.  Hacking the Color Wheel is tought by Kiala Girehand and a whole host of other artist. This lesson was taught by Sherry Canino.  You can check out class info at Kiale Girehand 

Color inspiration in art journal

  • I love how combining ink colors we can make new shades that blend with existing colors
  • I’m not a big muted color fan. But, the green grey created by mixing smoky slate and crushed curry
  • Colors can create a certain mood. The magazine page that this combination was pulled from was a yoga pose in front of mountains. With splashes of bright color. The mood energizing..

  • The card base is ink smeared on a block with very little water. Then sliding the block across watercolor paper to create a textured pattern.
  • I cut off most of the Smoky Slate. But, you get a few hints of it in the green created when it mixed with Crushed Curry
  • The Berry Burst stands out as the star of the show!!!!
  • this card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2. (cut paper so that it is 11 by 5 1/2 and then score at 5 1/2 inches on the 11 inch side) The berry burst layer is 5 by 5. And the inked layer is 1/8th inch less
  • I adore using the Just add Text stamp set!  It is perfect for all the beautiful backgrounds you make!!!

Colorful Seasons with a simple watercolor background

Over the weekend I was going through card projects that needed to be finished and ran across a watercolor background that worked perfectly with the new Colorful Seasons Bundle.  I have been wanting to use the  Adirondack chair for a while now!  This was the perfect opportunity. Yippee!!!!

Colorful Seasons Bundle

This bundle is jammed packed full of everything you need to make beautiful seasonal cards.

  •  The chair was die cut and then I add a little wink of stella over the chair for a glistening. Like the sun is shining…
  • The Crushed Curry mini chevron ribbon is just perfect to work with!  Here I wrapped it around the card several times at an angle. Each time adhering it on the back with a glue dot!  This helps keep it from sliding around
  • The sentiment is heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
