Hey all, Happy Wednesday! More shares from me :) Are you joining me in trying to #keepstamping? I was on a roll Monday afternoon, we'll see what the rest of the week brings!!
Here are a couple cards I colored for the next challenge from Stampin' Up! I love the Smile and Friend stamps in the Daisy Lane set, so this time I decided to use the flowers too! The challenge this week is Night Of Navy, Pear Pizzazz and Pumpkin Pie. I struggled briefly with this, as Pumpkin Pie to me says Fall. But then I decided flowers come in all sorts of colors! Two different versions, read the details below.
This one is true to challenge with the colors. I used the regular Stampin' Write markers to color the flower and stem images that were stamped with StazOn ink. Pear on the stem, Navy flower centers and Pumpkin petals. I tried to go lightly and leave some white space. I also took the fine line and went over a few areas for accent. Card base is Very Vanilla, accent layer of Pumpkin Pie and background of Thick Very Vanilla. Sweet and simple! #simplestamping
For this one, I reached for Stampin' Blends. We do not have Pear Pizzazz so I switched to Old Olive for my green. The flowers here are stamped with Memento ink. I generally go over most all the area with the light color first, then accent with the darker and finally blend over where they meet with the light again. These flowers pop to me compared to the other. I did the center with the light Navy and only added a bit of dark before blending again. Flower petals all light, then the outside with dark and blend. Coloring is generally not my thing, but sometimes it just works :) Same cardstock here as above.
Thanks for stopping by today! One more post for sure this week so stay tuned! Let me know if you have any questions or I can help with anything!! Product details and shopping links below.
