Thank goodness Tuesday has arrived and I’ve got my Mojo back! On Sunday, I went into my stamping studio and struggled to find my stamping mojo.. LOL, my friend Eva would say it’s probably on the table SOMEWHERE and buried alive!
But I did finally make this card for the Utah Divas International Color Challenge.. it was the first card of the day. One of seven new cards I designed and created, it took me the longest to construct, and it’s the simplest design too!
Today’s color challenge features the colors Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Always Artichoke, and Whisper White… perfect for a flower card, right?
You can see all four colors together in this photo… I used the new adorning accents embosslits and framelits for the scalloped edges. Stamped images are from the Borderlines stamp set… they look almost dimensional, but are stamped direct to paper (DTP).
The floral image from Oval All was inked with markers then stamped DTP too.. .it looked a bit flat, so I stamped a second flower, cut it out and popped it onto the card to add some dimension.
Tips for Stampers
- The Sneak Peek skinny sheer ribbon will be available on January 24th in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
- Use mini glue dots to affix ribbon ends to the back of the card, and to attach bow.
- The triple loop bow is so easy to create on your fingers, simply wrap the ribbon around one more time when following my tutorial for the Double Loop Bow!
Come play along with the Utah Divas International Design Team! We look forward to seeing your creative use of color!
See you tomorrow with a new Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge it’s one of the cards I made in Sunday’s design marathon!
