Ranunculus Romance – Hello

Running a little behind on a few challenges and deadlines are quickly approaching…

Here we go!  Case-ing Tuesday Facebook Challenge (#346) for the Sketch.

Principal Colors were suggested by the TGIF Challenge (#358) and Inspiration from the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge (#296) for the Flowers, adding the Green, emphasizing the Yellow and picking up on the Wooden Chair Lattice.

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Soft Suede cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4¼” x 5”) Bumble Bee colored patterned paper from the now retired Sale-a-bration Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper.
  • Accent Panel: (3½” x3½”) Soft Suede cardstock.
    • The right upper corner was distressed with a Bone Folder and peeled apart using the Suede Technique.
    • The panel was then dry-embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder.
    • For a more vintage look, I tore the edges of the panel and curled the distressed corner down.
  • Decorative Background panel (2¾” x 2¾”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
    • The square was dampened and watered-down Magenta Madness ink was applied with the Wide-Tipped Water Painter saturating the paper with diluted color.
    • Once dry, the Splatter image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set was added with 2nd Generation Magenta Madness ink (stamped-off once).
    • The Post Mark from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set was added to the top right corner with 3rd Generation Soft Suede ink (stamped-off twice).
    • The Registration image from the same stamp set was stamped with Mossy Meadow ink.
    • Using a Sponge Dauber, the edged were highlighted with Mossy meadow ink.
  • Cross Strip: (4¼” x 1½”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
    • The Filagree image (3rd Generation) and the Script image (2nd Generation) were stamped with Soft Suede ink.
    • Using another Sponge Dauber, the edges were highlighted with Bumble Bee ink.
  • Focal images – Flowers: Very Vanilla cardstock scraps.
    • The two Floral images were stamped with (3rd Generation) Soft Suede ink and allowed to set.
    • The Flowers were quickly water-colored with the Fine-Tipped Water Painter using Magenta Madness, Bumble Bee and Mossy Meadow inks.
    • Once dry, the Flowers were die-cut with the coordinating dies from the Ranunculus Dies set.
  • Sentiment Label: (⅞” x ¼”) Simply Marbleous DSP scrap.
    • The sentiment, HELLO, was stamped with Mossy Meadow ink and closely trimmed.

All of the elements were adhered and/or popped up with Dimensionals as needed to match the sketch.  I opted to add a little more romance by using a piece of Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim at the bottom of the Cross Strip.

What a fun stamp set to play with…
