Celebrate Sunflowers – Thinking of You

Welcome back! Card Two for the day. 

Sketch: Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge (#620); Color: Stampin’ Up! Colour Facebook Challenge (August); Materials: Double Trouble Challenge (#91).

Here is the result:

CELEBRATE SUNFLOWERS – INSPIRED THOUGHTS – TMS620 – SU! AUGUST COLOUR CHALLENGE – DT91

Steps:

  • For the background panel (4” x 5¼”), I chose one of the Plaid sheets from the retired Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper pack.  The colors in this plaid included Basic White, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Basic Black.  I added a few lines of Just Jade to the pattern with the Stampin’ Write Marker.
  • For the Dots, Stripes and Checks, I dry-embossed Daffodil Delight, Just Jade and Pumpkin Pie cardstock (1” x 4¾”) with the Dots, retired Corrugated 3D and Checks Embossing Folders for the three panels.
  • The small Sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock (1⅞” x 1⅞”).  The Sunflower was colored with the Daffodil Delight, retired Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends.
  • The Sunflower image was matted with a Basic Black accent square (2” x 2”).
  • The sentiment, Thinking of you on your special day, from the Inspired Moments stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink on to a scrap of Basic Black cardstock (3” x ⅝”) and heat-set with White Embossing Powder then trimmed on the diagonal.

I chose a Just Jade cardstock accent card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”). All of the pieces were adhered together, with the Focal image and Sentiment Label popped up with Dimensionals to match the Sketch.

A colorful and warm card just perfect for a Fall celebration and/or birthday.

  2. So pretty and great colors and mix of our “Scrapper’s Trail Mix”. I believe you have followed the colors from our partner ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge, you may want to look at their site and see if you have a good match to the M&M Mascot Color Palette. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble, and hope to see you over at Color Dare.
