I chose the Country Floral embossing folder by Stampin Up to emboss and color. It is a 3D folder so it has a lot of dimension. I embossed on Ranger Watercolor Paper, then proceeded to add color. I used Gina K Designs ink with a blender brush. I did come back and add a bit more color with pencils taking the pigment directly from the pencil with water. I chose a sentiment from Stippled Flowers from Gina K Designs. I added a bit of ribbon and a few gems.
I found my inspiration for the colors by searching the folder on Google. I found a SU demonstrator who shared exactly which colors she used and the card recipe. Her name is Cindy. Thank you Cindy for the inspiration and helpful blog post.
I put my thinking cap on to create a card for Gina K Designs March challenge.
The envelopes came from Timeless Beauty, cut out with matching dies. The word hello came from Skeleton Leaves. The greeting came from Anemone Wishes. I colored the envelopes with Copic markers in an array of colors, like the envelopes Gina K sells in her shop. I found an embossing folder to give texture to the cardstock. I made an A2 sized card. This was a fun challenge. I haven’t made a border with die cut images before, so this a enjoyable.
I found a card made by Sherri Gilson that I used for inspiration, but can’t seem to locate it to link. I enjoyed creating this card and finding several challenges that it would fit. Thanks for looking.
I created a card in silver and navy for the Mod Squad non-traditional challenge. The card was posted from Split Coast Stampers, but decided to share it here.
I used an older set from Stampin Up called Joyful Christmas. I stamped the poinsettia two times on In the Navy cardstock, and embossed it with Ranger Silver embossing powder. I fussy cut the poinsettia out and layered it. I used a Darice embossing folder and partially embossed it. I added a silver strip of paper between the embossing and the sentiment. The white paper is GKD Artists Choice. It was heavy enough that the paper didn’t rip after being embossed, like the thinner paper did.
I like these colors. This is one of my favorite sets for Christmas, and I have a lot to choose from.
