Hello my friends!
Today's card was created for one of the challenges from the Business Expo and Creative Party. There are usually three challenges throughout the day. I was only able to participate in the first one as I had to leave before the other two were posted. This challenge was a colour challenge. Our card had to include white, yellow, orange and black. I should note as well that we only get about half an hour to come up with our challenge cards. Here is the card I came up with....
I used the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set. I stamped the larger sunflower on to Bumblebee cardstock and Pale Papaya cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I stamped two sunflowers on the Pale Papaya cardstock. I used the corresponding die from the Sunflower Dies set to cut out my flowers. To create the centers, I used the detailed die from the same set and cut out just the center from Basic Black cardstock. I had to trim off the petals but I am really pleased with how it turned out. I attached these centers to my flowers using adhesive.
I used a Basic White Thick card base. I attached the two Pale Papaya flowers to my card front using adhesive and attached the Bumblebee flower using dimensionals.
I stamped my sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a strip of Basic White cardstock. I used my paper snips to cut a banner end in the left edge of my sentiment piece. I used a piece of Linen Thread wrapped around the sentiment piece and tied it into a bow on the right edge. I attached this to my card using dimensionals.
At this point, I was out of time so I posted my card to the challenge page. The next day I went into my craft room and saw this card sitting on the table. I felt like it needed something else. I decided to add some Matte Black Dots. I feel like that completed the card.
What I used for today's card:
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I am going to be sending it to a friend who is also a demonstrator. She is having some health issues and has had to step back from her Stampin' Up! business a little. I commend her for coming to such a difficult decision. I just want her to know that I'm thinking of her and hoping she is feeling better soon.
Stay well and keep creating!
