StampingPals Challenge #4 | Colour Challenge






Time for another StampingPals challenge. This month is a colour challenge which I always love as it gets me out of my comfort zone trying new colours together. 

And here is my creation.


I decided to use Very Versailles stamp set - one that I love buy haven't used much lately. 
I embossed a panel of pear pizzazz cardstock using the brick embossing folder.then die cut a piece of whisper white cardstock using the Stitched Nested Labels dies. 

I stamped the words in early espresso then stamped the leaf repeatedly over the top, not inking in between stamping (also known as second generation stamping) to create a lighter, washed look. 

I stamped the sentiment in Terracotta Tile and also die cut a thin strip using the Ornate Border dies to add some terracotta to the white panel to tie everything together. A thin layer of early espresso under the embossed panel makes the bricks a bit more of a feature.  

A couple of the in colour faceted dots finished off my card. 

Why not give this colour challenge a go? It's great to just pull out 3 colours of ink and card stock and just see what you come up with.

In Colors for 2020-2022


I am so in love with the 2020-2022 In Colours! I have been able to pre order them to have a play before the new catalogue goes live 3rd June 2020.  


Here we have Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider. Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight. 

I made my cards using all new product - new papers, cardstock, dies, ribbon and emblishments. The leaf die is from a set called Forever Flourishing and has 14 leaf dies. 

Below is a closer look at each individual card.

Happy Birthday Poppies


I have adored this Painted Poppies bundle and I am so pleased it is carrying over to the new catalogue! What is retiring though is the stunning Peaceful Poppies designer series paper. I'd stock up if I were you :)

I still had some paper left so I made this double Z fold card following Wendy Cranford's instructions. Such a fun card and it really makes a statement with the poppy parade cardstock and that large red and white poppy. 

I am off to make some more of these cards, such a fun fold. Why not give it a try yourself? I'd love to see what you create.

Ornate Garden Thanks


Gosh I love this designer series paper - such bold, bright, fun prints. 
Today's card is very simple but packs a punch! A layer of the Ornate Garden DSP on a terracotta tile cardstock base. I love the Ornate Garden dies for the focal sentiment and then used the daisy punch to punch two flowers from a scrap of cardstock. A simple rhinestone finishes it off.

A Little Note / Positive Thoughts


Another class card we made using the Positive Thoughts bundle, this time focusing on the sweet butterfly. Not the best photo sorry but you can still see the features of the card. This is one cased from Amy Koenders. 

We stamped the butterfly in Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay then die cut them and arranged them on the rectangle die cut. I used the thick whisper white cardstock for the base as it is more sturdy. 

A bit of twine an a sweet little embossed sentiment and ta da!!
