Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge, and I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here!
I pulled out a favorite bundle from the Annual Catalog – it’s easy to forget about all the wonderful goodies in that catty when we’re caught up in the excitement of a new Holiday catalog! Varied Vases, and the matching Vases Builder Punch, lend a floral flair to my Subtle TIEF-embossed panel. And looks really lovely perched atop a Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut. Take a look-see:
We had a great color combo this week!
Using the Delicate Lace Edgelits, I cut a piece of Pool Party card stock to create the “on Lace” portion of my card, and cut it down a bit to be thinner (top to bottom).
Next, I embossed a piece of Galvanized Metal Paper in the new Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF (these will both be available on 5 Sept with the new 2018 Holiday Catalog). Then I punched out several shapes with the Vase Builder Punch.
I dry fit the Lace die cut and my vases to determine where my flowers should be stamped on my Whisper White card front panel. Then I stamped the flowers from Varied Vases in Gray Granite to correspond to where the vases would end up. To complete the flowers, I used full-strength Berry Burst for the double flowers on the ends and Lemon Lime Twist for the two middle sets.
For the “tulips” – I added the outline image in full-strength Berry Burst and then stamped the fill image in stamped-off-once Berry Burst.
With the flowers all stamped, I ran the Whisper White panel thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and matted it on Pool Party with Liquid Glue. Then I added the Delicate Lace die cut and wrapped some Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine three times around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.
I gently curled the cut vases and adhered them with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The Varied Vases sentiment is stamped in Berry Burst on Whisper White, punched with the Classic Label Punch and adhered with Liquid Glue.
I tied a bow from two lengths of the Silver & Pool Party Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a little Liquid Glue, added a few Pearl Basic Jewels and the card front was done!
On the inside, I cut another Delicate Lace Edgelits die from Pool Party card stock and adhered it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Gray Granite vase and stems and Berry Burst Flowers…
…and the envelope flap is embossed in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.
Et Voila! I think Varied Vases has to be one of our prettiest and most versatile bundles, don’t you? And I love the Delicate Lace Edgelits – they create such beautiful accents. I hope you like!
