Welcome to the September installment of the Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop. This month, was a color challenge. That means had to use certain colors in our projects. The colors were…
So, here is what I came up with!
Now for a close up of each…
This first card was inspired by the Easter Palace Suite. I combined a couple of the framelits from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits (143725) to create the medallion and layered it atop a Gold Foil (132622) circle. I added a touch more gold with a piece of the Easter Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper (144147) as well as some Gold Metallic Thread (138401). The sentiment comes from the Feathery Friends HOSTESS set (144032/144037).
I used a bit of gold on this next card too!
I used the Burlap stamp (143979/143982) to create the background in Fresh Fig. I added a bit of Burlap Ribbon (141487), Fresh Fig Finely Woven Ribbon (144132) and Gold Mini Sequin Trim (144128) to add a bit of interest. The sentiment is the Stylized Birthday stamp (141828).
But, don’t worry… It doesn’t take much at all to create a fabulous card with these colors!
I used some scraps left over from other projects on the card above. I simply wove them together a bit. The sentiment here came from the All Things Thanks set (143089/143097). This is the perfect set for all sorts of thank yous!
Gold isn’t the only metallic that goes well with this color scheme. Copper is also a great choice! On the card above, I just cut a few circles in Tranquil Tide and layered on top of a Fresh Fig card base. The sentiment is from the Dare to Dream Hostess set (143769) and has been embossed in copper and a bit of Copper Trim (144179) was used to make a pretty little bow!
On this last card, I used by sponge daubers to apply Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide to the Marbled (143755/144772) background stamp then stamped it ont to Very Vanilla. I added layers of the Happy Birthday Thinlits (143700) for the sentiment and used a bit of the Finely Woven Ribbon in Fredh Fig and Tranquil Tide to add a bit of interest. And, of course, I always dot the “i” from the thinlit with a Rhinstone!
