Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a full roster for today’s color challenge, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!
This one was kind of tough.
I decided to also play along with the clean-and-simple sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.
To make my clean-and-simple card, using a tough color scheme, I used some Merry Music Specialty DSP from the new 2017 Holiday Catalog along with the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch. Take a look-see:
I started with a simple Whisper White panel and used my Simply Scored Board to make horizontal and vertical score lines. I flipped the panel over a couple of times while making my score lines – so some are raised and some are indented. Then I matted it on a piece of Basic Black card stock.
I made the flower by punching three daisies with the Daisy Punch from the Merry Music Specialty DSP. Each petal was sponged lightly with Flirty Flamingo ink. Then I used the new Leaf Punch – in the 2017 Holiday Catalog – to punch three sets of leaves, also from Merry Music paper. Those I sponged with Emerald Envy.
I lightly curled the petals of the flowers and then stacked and adhered them with Liquid Glue. I laid everything in place on the card front and stamped my sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. You might recall – long ago, I cut the Thank You sentiment stamp in my Daisy Delight stamp set in half – that let me easily stamp it as a stacked sentiment instead on a single line. I brushed the words with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush!
I adhered the leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue, then used a few Glue Dots to adhere a length of Black Mini Sequin Trim. Over the top of all that, I used another Glue Dot to adhere the Daisy to the card front.
I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the center of the flower, and a few Black Rhinestone Jewels (Holiday Catalog) to the card front and that was it.
For the inside of my card, I took a Whisper White panel and cut a flower in the bottom corner with the Daisy Punch. Using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker, I edged the petals. Behind the opening, I used some Liquid Glue to adhere a square of Merry Music Specialty DSP.
I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Daisy Delight flower on the front. I stamped the image three times – in stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo – rotating the stamp slightly for each stamp. Then I made a little mask with more punched daisies…
…and laid that over the flower. Then I used a piece of card stock – with the Leaf Punch punched out as a stencil – and sponged some leaves in Emerald Envy…
…then I added some more Merry Music Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I think this card shows that even things that are “Christmas” (Merry Music DSP) or “Halloween/Fall” (Black Rhinestones) can be combined in so many ways to create whatever you can imagine! Of course, the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch are favorites of most of us and I love how the elements all came together! Hope you like!
