I had some old scraps (just the pieces you put on the base) from a workshop I did so I made them into kits. Instead of using the normal base color (Old Olive) I changed it to Sahara Sand and you know what? I think I like it this way better. I gave these to my Stamp Club members as a challenge to see what they could come up with keeping all the cardstock the same size. I cut extras for me that way I could give them some extra ideas. These are the ones I came up with. It was fun!
Supplies all Stampin' Up! Unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: Carte Postale & Fundamental Phrases & Leaves a la Carte Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Sahara Sand, So Saffron, Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive and Very Vanilla
Ink: Purely Pomegranate and So Saffron
Accessories: Old Olive Polytwill (Occasions Mini), 3/16" Corner Rounder (for Scallop edge) and Stampin' Dimensionals.
This is the first one I did and I didn't like it too much, so I did my 2nd one:
Stamps: Same as the first card
Paper: Same as the first card
Ink: Same as the first card
Accessories: Same as the first card
I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig (yes I finally got one!) to line up the "CELEBRATE".
This next one is my favorite! I Love this stamp set!
Supplies: All Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: Embrace Life
Paper: same as cards above
Ink: VersaMark, Old Olive and Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Stampin' Pastels (So Saffron), DS (double Stitched) Purely Pomegranate Ribbon (threads removed) and Crafters Tool Kit (Paper Piercing).
I used VersaMark to stamp the big flower on the Sahara Sand base. Then I stamped the "leaves" in Purely Pomegranate on Pomegranate for a tone on tone affect. I adhered the So Saffron to the Pomegranate and paper pierced it. Then I cut the ribbon to size and removed the thread and tied it around the cardstock. For the Focal image I stamped the "flower cluster" in old olive and colored in the petals with so saffron pastels and stamped the sentiment underneath it in Purely Pomegranate.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed these cards!
