Hi stampers, my share today is created with the Stampin Up Kinda Eclectic for Card Concepts challenge. It’s also a CAS card, (clean and simple) to start the week off…
I actually combined two challenges for today. The Card Concept has a inspiration challenge
I chose to pick colors from this image to use in my creating, Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay, Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride.
I combined this with the Sketch Challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments
Sandi’s Tips and Tricks
- Use the “stamping off” technique to stamp the leaves across the center of the art piece (Ink stamp once – stamp twice)
- Stamp the sentiment in a contrasting color so that it pops!
- Stamp and punch out the butterflies – super quick and easy with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches from Stampin Up.
- In choosing the butterfly colors, I used the rule of 3…..my sentiment is Bermuda Bay, so I added two blue butterflies , it helps to ground the color on the card and gives me 3 blue items. (I stamped the butterflies off as well so that they were lighter)
I love to create matching envelopes for my cards, Stampin Up envelopes are amazing quality and awesome to stamp on.
And a little surprise on the inside as well, still leaving enough room to write.
