Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop. I'm here with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team). This month the theme is “No White Challenge”! We were to make a project without using any white! Well, I think we may have been able to use white embossing powder, but you're in for a very colorful hop. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from my wonderful friend Sue. I'm sure you loved her colorful project!
I decided to start with the Shine Bright Bundle again and the Wrapped In Plaid 6" X 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper with golf foil accents. I love plaid paper! If you've been around this blog for very long, you probably already know that. And, I love the detail in the Stitched Brightly Dies, as they do all of the work for you.
I started with die cutting the evergreen die onto gold foil paper, which turned out beautifully. Since we couldn't use white, I used Sahara Sand cardstock as my card base and for the greeting layer as well. The color is a nice contrast for the plaid. I punched a piece of Shaded Spruce Cardstock using the Starburst Punch. I die cut more gold foil using the Stitched Shapes Dies, and a Sahara Sand Cardstock circle using the Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the plaid layer and gold strip to the card base.
I stamped the greeting in Shaded Spruce ink onto the circle. Then, I stamped the little flower around the greeting in Sahara Sand Ink. I also colored the flowers with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush. The three greeting layers were adhered together, and adhered to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals and some retired Gold Metallic Thread, which you can still get in the Clearance section.
I liked the card so much, I made another one using the blue, green and red plaid. The starburst layer is out of Night of Navy Cardstock and the greeting was stamped in Night of Navy Ink also.
All the rest of the details are the same.
Well, that is all for me today. But, you should move on to Jennifer's blog. I'm sure she has a wonderful project to share!
