Hello everybody! Welcome to tonight’s Colour Creations blog hop and this week it is Flirty Flamingo. It is a bright pinky-orangey type of colour.
I have created two very different cards this week and decided to play around with the Artistically Inked stamp and die bundle.
The first card is just a Basic Black card base and mat. The intricate die is cut using the Artistic die and Basic White card stock and then coloured with inks and blending brushes. I have used ink colours: Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Freesia, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight.
I adhered the floral die cut with Multipurpose Liquid glue to the mat. The sentiment from the new Delicate Dahlias stamp set is stamped with VersaMark onto Flirty Flamingo card stock and heat embossed with White embossing powder. It is then cut using a Stitched Rectangle die.
This stamp set is a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a minimum spend of $A180 but the promotion will end shortly on 30 September. I’m looking forward to putting in another order before it does end. Oh and of course I have added some sequins from the Ephemera pack.
This next card uses the watercolour stamp from the Artistically Inked set. I have been wanting to play with this set for awhile.
The card base is Basic White and layered with a Misty Moonlight mat that was dry embossed with the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder.
The stamped panel was cut with a Stitched Rectangle die and stamped with Flirty Flamingo and Misty Moonlight inks. I wasn’t sure how they would go together but I think it looks okay!
This panel was adhered to the base and embossed mat. I have used the Tailored Tag punch on the Sweet Symmetry DSP for the tag shapes. The sentiment is again from the Delicate Dahlias set and embossed as previously.
The words have been fussy cut and adhered with dimensionals onto the punched shapes. I thought as the panel was busy I didn’t think it needed further embellishments but looking at it again you could add twine or some gems or sequins. I think it’s a crafters dilemma…”to embellish or not to embellish” LOL.
Hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop where you can find more inspiration from the very talented Di Furniss
