The Right Triangle & Massive Thanks Thank You Card

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute little card for you that features two new stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  That is so easy to make that it will blow your mind.  I used both The Right Triangle and Massive Thanks Stamp set to create my card.  Here's a look at today's card.  

This card is all about stamping in both first and second generation stamping.  It does have a little die cutting but nothing to bad.  Actually it has only one die cut element to the card.  The Right Triangle Stamp Set is a beautiful geometric set that allows you to create anything your mind can come up with.  my card today looks like a quilt.  And, that's all because of how I stamped everything.  I only used three colors for the stamping, Bumblebee, Blackberry Bliss, and Old Olive.  Those are the only inks that I used.  And for the cardstock I did add in Whisper White.  

 

This entire card is based on how you arrange the three different triangles from the Right Triangle Stamp Set.  I only used these colors and it was all stamped by hand.  I just made sure everything was lined up.  The lighter yellow is just Bumblebee Ink Stamped off onto scratch paper one time.  I found it easier to stamp one section first then move on to the next color in that same section.  

Once I had all the triangles stamped in the pattern I wanted I just trimmed my panel down.  I then layered it onto a piece of Bumblebee Cardstock cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and placed it onto a Old Olive Card base (4 1/4 x 11).  Before glueing it down I did wrap the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon around the layer and tied it into a bow.  And add the sentiment from the Massive Thanks Stamp Set which was cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I also added a few Metallic Gold Pearls to the card.

Forever Blossoms - The Spot Challenge #119

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am here to share with you my card for this week’s Creative Challenge over at The Spot.  This week we have a fun little color challenge for you to play along with.  The card that I designed for this week’s color challenge started out as a completely different card than what I ended up with.  I designed a different card to use but the more I thought about my original card today the less I liked it.  So, at the last minute I scrapped my card and created a completely new one and I love what I came up with.  Here is a look at my new card for this week’s challenge. 


On my new card I started out by using my Stamparatus and stamped the floral image from the Forever Blossoms Stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped it twice on the same sheet of Thick Whisper White Cardstock by turning it around to the other side.  I then took my Stampin’ Blends in Pool Party, Magenta Madness, and Basic Black to do my coloring. 


I debated if I wanted to color each floral image the same way or change it up slightly but ended up deciding that it would be better for my design if they were colored the same.  Once all my color was complete, I put my stamped images back into my Stamparatus and stamped the images again in Versamark Ink.  I made sure to leave my stamp in the same position as when I first stamped it so that it would be easier to line everything back up. 


Once I had the images stamped again, I added some Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set them.  One the melted powder had cooled I took them out and used the matching dies to cut each image out.  At this point I cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 x 5 ¼ and used the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder and embossed it.  I then added this to a Magenta Madness layer that was cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. 


Next, I stamped my sentiment in Versamark and used the same embossing powder and heat set that.  I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut it and a scalloped circle from Pool Party Cardstock out.  I layered them together and added them to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then added the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well around the sentiment.  To finish off my card I added a few of the Gold Metallic Pearls sprinkled around the card. 


Here is a look at the challenge image that inspired my color pallet today.  I hope that you will take time and play along with us this week over at The Spot.  You can check out what the other design team members came up with using this color combo by clicking here.
