My card today has been inspired by the colour challenge at TGIF Challenges. The challenge was to use Purple Posy, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray which are 3 of the 5 new In-Colours. I chose the Country Home stamp which is one my favourites as it encompasses a warm homely feel with it’s rustic cans, country tile and wild flowers.
I started off by stamping a 14.8cm x 10.5cm piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Buffalo Check stamp in Rococo Rose. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped it over the entire piece. As it is a large stamp, the use of the Stamparatus gave me the ability to re-stamp the image if parts of it didn’t stamp through the first time.
Using a larger piece of cardstock with the Stamparatus gives you space to place your magnets and to get full coverage with your stamped image.
Then I cut this piece of cardstock down to 5.2cm x 13.2cm and punched the end with the Delightful Tag Topper punch. I used the balance piece to decorate my envelope.
The can has been coloured in Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends and the flowers in Rococo Rose and Purple Posy. The leaves have been coloured with Crumb Cake to add a neutral tone to blend in with the colour scheme.
I have layered the sentiment on a doily cut out of the Botanical Tags dies and sponged with Rococo Rose. Then I added a strip of Whisper White cardstock stamped with one my new favourite texture stamps – Very Versailles. The sentiment is also from this stamp set and I love the font. I stamped this on Crumb Cake cardstock to bring in the leaves from the coloured image.
The Botanical Bliss stamp set was used with the Stamparatus to create a border for the inside of the card.
