Hey all! Hope your weekend has been a good one! Pretty low key here! Some work done, some resting done :) I was very productive today so made a point to get to the stamp room tonight!! Here is one of the cards I came out with.
After hanging out with some stamping friends last week and talking about the new colors of Stampin' Blends, I decided to play with at least one of them. I also had the new Brights 6x6 DSP. The combo of those led me to Poppy Parade! I'm not a huge fan of red anymore, but I did like Poppy Parade when it was an In Color. And I really like how this came out! I started with Thick Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flower from Beautiful Day with Memento Tuxedo Black. I then colored with the Poppy Parade, Pineapple Punch and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends. Generally for shading, I color the image all in light, then come back in and edge the dark. Grab the light again and blend where they meet. LOVE!! The saying is from Dragonfly Dreams and was stamped in Poppy Parade on a banner of Thick Whisper White. The banner was cut using the Lakeside Framelits. I layered a second banner under of Basic Black.
The card base is Poppy Parade with an accent layer of Basic Black behind the striped DSP Poppy Parade background. After coloring the flower with the Stampin' Blends I went over it all with my Stella Wink of Glitter pen. It is almost empty so it is a little light. The flower was cut out and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. A Basic Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon is knotted around between the flower and the banner.
