Global Design Project #260 & TGIF Challenge #283

Hey Everyone

Best part about being on holidays is, not only do I get to sleep in, I get to craft when I want!  The card I’m sharing today is for two challenges – this weeks CASE the Designer at  Global Design Project Challenge and Designer Take Over Challenge at TGIF Challenge.

The great thing about challenges is that they get you to create out of your comfort zone.  Ink blending used to scare me and I wouldn’t even bother trying it in case I messed it up. I told myself who cares if I messed it up, I could always bin it.

I have never tried blending the colours I’ve used on my card until today as I didn’t think I was much of an orange person. I think I might just be an orange lover now! The colours I’ve blended are Petal Pink, Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie.

The peonies I’ve added to my card are from the Prized Peony Stamp Set. These peonies have been stamped in Black Memento Ink and coloured with a combination of Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze Blends.  The leaves I’ve layered on my card are stamped from the Forever Fern Stamp Set – these have been stamped with Pool Party Ink.

For the base of my card I added a rectangle of Sahara Sand Cardstock that has been embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  The Whisper White Cardstock panel under my flowers are leaves, has been punched with the Rectangular Postage Punch.  I’ve actually punched two of them to create a longer rectangle and hidden the join under the peonies. The fussy cut sentiment is from the matching stamp to the punch called Postage For You Stamp Set.

Three Champagne Basic Rhinestone Jewels were added to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by.
