Here is my color challenge for today!
These colors reminded me of fall. However, I am currently focused on Spring… so I thought I would find a stamp set that would meet in the middle. I decided to work with the Stampin’ Up! Dreams du Jour stamp set. It’s beautiful and it’s one that I enjoy working with!
To create this card I started with a Chocolate Chip base. I really wanted the Sanded background stamp texture to the Very Vanilla. I was bummed when I realized that I didn’t own the Sanded background stamp. As you know with crafting there is always another way to get the same effect so I pulled out my retired Weathered Background stamp. I thought it worked perfectly.
Then I used a small layer of More Mustard. I like to free hand tear my edges. Of course Stampin’ Up! makes a fabulous tearing edge if that’s easier for you. Then I added another Chocolate Chip square. Lastly, the Very Vanilla square.
I stamped my image in Chocolate Chip. I then cleaned my stamp and used the More Mustard Stampin’ Write Marker to color the stamp again and stamp it on scrap paper. I cut out the “Dreams” and the flowers and leafs. I then colored the image again in Tangerine Tango and stamped it on scrap paper. This time I only cut out the little flowers to layer on top of my More Mustard Flowers. You can see the my butterfly adds a Tangerine Tango flare. I finished my card with two Chocolate Chips Brads.
