I wanted to show you the card everyone got to make at my Open House events last weekend. I think everyone was happy with their results.
I wanted to showcase the Colorful Seasons Bundle as I had been playing a bit with it lately.
This card was inspired by a card by Patty Bennett. You can see her card HERE. I loved the idea of the sponged moon effect.
The card base was the lovely new Incolor Berry Burst with the Powder Pink. Instead of the ribbon that Patty used I added a scallop edge in Powder Pink using the Scallop Thinlit in the set. I added a little sparkle with a strip of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
To create the Sponged moon effect. Take a piece of copy paper cut to the size of the Whisper White card. Cut a circle using the Layering Circles Framelits to the left of the copy paper piece.
Place the piece of paper over the Whisper White card and carefully start sponging the Powder Pink ink inside the circle. Gradually making your way in to the centre of the circle. It is good to leave the centre a little lighter. TIP: If you haven’t used any removable adhesive on your paper then you need to hold the paper in place carefully with your fingers at the circle edge. Sponge in to the circle. Slowly move your fingers as you work around the circle to hold the paper down. If that makes sense??
Then take the Berry Burst inkpad and sponge a small section in the lower left corner. Then you can remove the piece of copy paper, stamp your sentiment and tree branch in Early Espresso and some flowers in Berry Burst. Assemble your card together, then cut a chair (love that chair!) in Berry Burst and some small flowers in Powder Pink.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a super stampy day/night wherever you are. Don’t forget to stop by and say HI. Tell me where you are from. I love to read how far this travels.
