Colorful Seasons

Do pin a lot of ideas on Pinterest?  Do you every MAKE any of the things you pinned?  Well, I do pin a lot…I use them for inspiration but don’t always exactly copy them.  Quite some time ago I pinned a card that had blue and orange leaves.  I LOVED it and wanted to great it.  Except for similar colors and the idea of using leaf images, I really didn’t copy it but really ended up with a FUN card!

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, run through the Plank embossing folder, layer on Pacific Point – 3 3/4 x 5 and add to card front
  • Pacific Point – 2 x 3 5/8, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/4 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp large solid and small solid leaf in Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point, cut out with matching framelits
  • Whisper White – cut out detailed leaf
  • Vellum – cut out solid large, solid small and detailed leaf.
  • Layer all the leaves together and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – 1/2 x 2 1/2, stamp greeting using Memento Black, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Clear Faceted Gems to finish off

Colorful Seasons

This was really one of my MUST HAVE sets from the new catalog and I was sooooo happy to see that it was on the pre-order list!

The SUO Challenge theme this time is ‘watercoloring’ and well…let’s just say ‘watercoloring’ is not high on my list of things I like to do.  I think part of my issue with watercoloring is that it looks ‘messy’ to me.  I am definitely one of the those ‘color inside the lines kind of gals!’.  LOL!!!  So I decided for my ‘watercoloring’ to use the acrylic block method to ‘watercolor’ a background for my beach chair!

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Color Theory dsp stack – two pieces – one 1 1/4 x 4 1/4 and the other 1/2 x 4 1/4; add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4, ink acrylic block using Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Soft Sky, spritzer and stamp onto paper – hold down allowing the ink to spread; let dry
  • Stamp frame of chair in Soft Suede and seat in Dapper Denim; stamp breathe in Dapper Denim and just in Soft Suede; add to card front just dimensionals
  • Add some glitter enamel dots to finish off

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!
