It's time to hop again with a Blog Hop from the We Fall In... Colours team. We are an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who love to share our passion for creativity through colour. If you've come from Conni's blog, you are on the right track. A full list of participants is shown at the end of this post if you get lost along the way.
This month's colour challenge features Sahara Sand, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede.
Another colour palette that is outside my comfort zone but I went with it and ended up making two cards again! I think this could be a running theme!
For my first card I started with a panel of Soft Suede cardstock and stamped the leaf image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Whisper White ink. Wiping the surface of the stamp between every three or four impressions avoids a build up of ink and allows for a crisper image. It is also important to heat set the ink with a heat tool as it stays wet much longer than regular Stampin' Up! inks. I used Nature's Thoughts Dies to create the vellum panel for my die cut leaf which was stamped with Mint Macaron ink. I added a stacked friend sentiment from the Well Written Dies and finished off by wrapping some Linen Thread around the spine of the card and tying in a knot to balance out the sentiment.
My second card is quite different but still works with the colour scheme. I created a panel of Whisper White card and ran this through my embossing machine with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, attaching to my card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a strip of Mint Macaron card to the bottom third to ground my topper. My main image came from the Wildly Happy stamp set and was stamped in Soft Suede on Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper. I used an Aqua Painter to draw out the colour and add extra depth to the elephants. I used the 2 1/4" and 2" circle punches to place under my image. The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set which I used above. I did some stamp surgery so that I could stamp Hugs on its own. I stamped this in Soft Suede on Sahara Sand cardstock and then used the Stitched Rectangles to cut it out before mounting on Mint Macaron cardstock.
