Stamp, Ink, Paper: Color Challenge

Today’s Celebrate card is for the weekly Stamp Ink Paper color challenge.  This card will go into the #ImBringingBirthdaysBack 2017 stack.  However, I must admit…I’ve gotten a little behind.  So most of the cards, for February have become Belated Birthday cards.  Nevertheless, they will go out and for each card that is late I’m putting a little treat inside each card.

As I say each week, my Stamp Ink Paper teammates have a talent that is out of this world!  Their design can be duplicated and made your own.  You can also enter one of your cards and enjoy sharing your card with the world.  

The Details:

  • Banner.  The CELEBRATE banner is not a die-cut, it’s a snip cut (LOL).  After it was stamped the scissors were used to create the banner.  I followed the curve of the letters and cut a V from corner to corner on each side.  It came out better than I thought it would.

What’s More Enjoyable: Little or Big Things?

Enjoy the Little Things

I have often watched other card makers design their own background and it’s always been intimidating for me.  But today, I bit the bullet and went for it!  We are our own worst critiques and although I didn’t think it was perfect enough here it is!

The Details:

  • Which colors first?  Although there’s no right or wrong way, I first stamped the lighter colors.
  • Light in the middle.  Leave a little less color in the middle so that the main sentiment shows up a little more bold.  However, I embossed the sentiment so that it was more bold and stood out from the rest of the card.

Walking in the Rain

Friendship

Here it is my friends!  The plug to the hole in my heart is the Retro Rubber (Card) Challenge. I’m not on the design team, but will start using my vast Stampin’ Up! collection of years gone past.  Cards made with my ‘antique’ collection usually don’t make the blog because they aren’t available for purchase from Stampin’ Up! and I’m not selling them. But now I’ll be able to show them off on the blog and I’m so excited and I only hate that you can’t see the goofy smile on my face.

retro-challenge-50

everything-nice-2005-suStamp set used for the Retro Rubber Challenge (RRCB50) is the retired set And Everything Nice – 2005.  It is absolutely nothing but cuteness.  If you have an older stamp set you’d like to show off I’d also love to see your card on the challenge.

Friendship The Details:

  • Water-color Madness.  For over a month now I have been water-coloring like a mad woman and the best tool I’ve found that works great for me are the Aqua Painters.  They come in two brush sizes and I tend to use the smaller one.  I love that the brush allows me to be able to start off with a darker shade of the color and I brush in short strokes to push the color down where I want it to blend.  You just have to practice practice practice.
  • Please Leave a Comment.  Your comments give me the encouragement to continue the blog and share my love of handmade cards.  I’d love for you to forward this post to a friend and say, “If I had made this card, I would’ve sent it to you.” LOL…then I want you to come back and let me know what they said.
  • Share Some Sunshine.  Did you think of a specific friend when you first saw the retro image and read the cute sentiment?  Please share it.  Scroll down to the bottom of the post and click on the envelope image to share the card with someone whom you think can use a little bit of sunshine today.
