Mornin’, y’all! Welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop! This month, our theme is “Use Something from the New Catalog”. Easy Peasy!! I’m looking forward to seeing what all our talented ladies come up with – and hope you’ll spend some time exploring the hop when you’re done here!
Today’s card is kind of fun. Why? Cuz I’ve used some of our new Embossing Paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks! I added a sentiment from the Pieces & Patterns stamp set – and another couple three flowers from the Beautiful Bouquet bundle. Take a look-see:
My layout is from this week’s challenge over at CAS(E) This Sketch.
And my colors and several design elements were inspired by this photo from The Card Concept.
I made this as a notecard sized card – partly because my original design plan was going to go better with that size. But when I changed horses in the middle of the stream – I just stuck with it.
I started with a Very Vanilla panel and, using a Pattern Party Decorative Mask, added some Embossing Paste texture to part of the panel. I’ll do another card with the Embossing Paste – maybe for my video next Sunday – but you should know it’s really easy to work with. It also dries pretty quickly!
Once it had dried, I matted the panel on a piece of Soft Suede (a nod to the wall paint in the inspiration photo!). Then I wrapped a piece of new Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.
For my sentiment, I inked up the sentiment from the Pieces & Patterns stamp set with Versamark and heat embossed it in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Then I cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits square die. I matted it on two scalloped squares that I cut with a die from the Squares Layering Framelits. One is in Very Vanilla and the other in Berry Burst. I used Liquid Glue to mat the sentiment onto the Very Vanilla square.
I used a little more Liquid Glue to adhere the Berry Burst square to the card front, then popped the Very Vanilla Square and sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To make the flowers I pulled out the pretty flower from Beautiful Bouquet and stamped it three times in Berry Burst on Very Vanilla. Then I cut them all out with the matching die from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits. They’re adhered with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to the sentiment square.
I finished the front off with a few Silver Sequins that I pulled off a strand of new Mini Sequin Trim, adhering them with tiny eensy dabs of Liquid Glue!
My inside Very Vanilla panel got some graphics – to tie in with the chairs in the photo. Using the large die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits, I cut out a Basic Black shape. I used the shape as a template and then adhered the cut-out pieces in the negative spaces with Liquid Glue. When I picked up the template, here’s what was left!
I adhered the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Basic Black note card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Note Card Envelope (yep – we now have Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes!!) got another Beautiful Bouquet flower in Berry Burst on the front…
…and then I added some Berry Burst paper in a graphic-y design from the Fresh Florals DSP Stack to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Loving the new Embossing Paste!! What a fun way to add texture – and you can even color it with some drops of re-inker! May try that soon, too. Hope you like!
