Today I’m going to share with you two projects I made using the new set Beautiful Day from page 26 of the Occasions Catalogue. This set has two lovely big line art images that lend themselves to a variety of colouring techniques. For these two I’ve used the Stampin Blends. It also has two sentiments and a background image.
The image and sentiment are stamped in Memento Black ink and then I’ve coloured in the butterfly using the light and dark shades of Bermuda Bay. The background image has been stamped in Bermuda Bay. I stamped the butterfly image on a scrap piece of cardstock then once I’d coloured it in fussy cut it out and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.
For this card I stamped the image in Memento Black on a scrap piece of cardstock and coloured the flower in using the light and dark shades of Pumpkin Pie for the petals, Bronze for the centre and then light and dark Old Olive for the leaves. I then fussy cut the flower and the leaf out. On another piece of scrap I stamped the leave another two times and the centre of the flower. After colouring these in I also fussy cut them out. Now the assembly of my image. I adhered the left leave and lower right leave to the back of the main flower and then adhered this to my piece of Pool Party cardstock. Then the centre layer of the flower was adhered with dimensionals to give the flower more height.
Both card bases are Basic Black and I’ve used Thick Whisper White instead of ordinary Whisper White as the thicker cardstock is better to use with the Stampin Blends.
For an earlier 3D project I created using the Butterfly image check out my post here.
The next lot of projects I’ll share with you use the Heart Happiness stamp set on page 20 – these will give you some ideas for cards if you are into Valentines or they can be used for wedding anniversaries.
Until then …
