Stamper’s Anonymous Blog Hop #52

Our Blog Hop #52 is a colour challenge using Pale Papaya, Parakeet Party and Pool Party. I have had a swatch of all three cardstock colours sitting on my table for a few days and kept looking at them – trying to get inspiration!!

Today – a little before the blog is due, I had the idea of using an embossing folder as the main feature of the card. I wasn’t sure how it would work! Very often we have our wonderful embossing folders in our stash and don’t use them as much as we should – or we have our favourites that we use all the time!!!

I embossed Painted Posies on Basic White cardstock. You get a beautiful, deep pattern when you use this one. It is very tactile.

I then got out my water painter and the three ink colours and began lightly colouring the flowers. I love Parakeet Party but it can seem quite strong with the other colours and as I am into more pastel cards, I wanted to keep that colour to a minimum.

Once I had coloured the cardstock, I used Wink of Stella on the flowers only. I mounted the cardstock on Pool Party cardstock and then the card front on Basic Black. I played around with where to put the sentiment and ended up putting it on the bottom right. I stamped the sentiment from ‘Go to Greetings’ in Versamark and Pool Party and heat set it with Clear Embossing powder. This was cut out using one of the Pillowbox dies. I then added some Pearl Basic Jewels to the front of the card.

Inside, I added a piece of Basic White and added a small piece of Pale Papaya with thin strips of Parakeet Party and Pool Party glued on it.
