Welcome to the August 2021 Casually Crafting Blog Hop! We are Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators from around the world who love to create cards ideal for the beginner or casual crafter. This month we’re taking on a colo(u)r challenge with Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and Polished Pink.
Funny story: I was out of town for a couple of days, and thought I had ink pads and cardstock ready to start creating when I got back home on Friday afternoon. Well, I’m still not sure what I had originally been planning to do with Pear Pizzazz, Pale Papaya, and Flirty Flamingo, but I look forward to sharing a couple of cards I made with them soon! When I realized I had used the wrong color combination, I ended up choosing an entirely different stamp set that I don’t think I’ve used yet (I have used the coordinating dies), Color & Contour.
I started with Polished Pink Cardstock, 11″ x 4.25, scored at 5.5″. Next, I stamped the flower image with Early Espresso ink on a panel of Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock, 5″ x 3.75″. I colored with image with Polished Pink, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
I added a Pear Pizzazz strip, 5″ x 0.5″, from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper near the right and left edges of the Very Vanilla panel. I added the panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso, punched it out with the Double Oval Punch, and added Daffodil Delight ink around the edge with a sponge dauber. I popped this up with more Dimensionals.
Finally, I added Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.
