Cold and wet! What a perfect time to sit and play. This time I wanted to try out the On Board Accents which have been sitting on the shelf for a very long time. In this first card, I used a simple rectangle on board accent, covered it with Very Vanilla card and used markers to stamp two different stamps from the retired Take Three set. I used my deckle scissors to cut some strips of Sage Shadow and Bordering Blue to sit behind a strip of So Saffron. I also added a small piece of vanilla grosgrain ribbon knotted to a circular clip to finish it off.
The next one is very basic. I used my Sizzix BigKick to cut some Nestabilities squares in white card. These were then stamped with Pocket Silhouettes in Not Quite Navy ink and the edges sponged with the same ink. A small strip of Not Quite Navy was centred down the Certainly Celery card and the white squares placed over this strip. ‘Friend to friend’ sentiment was then stamped on the side.
The third card is based on a gift box in the current Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalogue. I used Bashful Blue as the base for the card, with a piece of Bella Rose DSP centred on it. Two of the Fifth Avenue Floral flowers were then stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink on Confetti White. The stamens were water coloured with Chocolate Chip ink and the daisy style flower lightly water coloured with Bashful Blue ink. The stems and sentiment were stamped with Stazon on Old Olive. A strip of white grosgrain was placed on the lower part of the card with the sentiment layered over it. The flowers were added with dimensionals to give a 3D effect.
Have a warm weekend.
