The Spot - #119 Colour Challenge


Welcome to The Spot for Inspiration and Weekly Cardmaking Challenges
Every Tuesday we have a completely new challenge for you.

 The Design Team Members are Stampin' Up! Demos from around the globe,
there are 13 of us in total and we all LOVE creating.
So to be given a weekly challenge it allows us to dig into our creative side.
This week is a Colour Combo of Magenta Madness, Black, Gold and Pool Party.
Such a Gorgeous combination!!!


 As soon as I saw the colour combination I was IN LOVE!!!!
I hadn't inked up To A Wild Rose before this day, so I figured that was the sign!!
The flower from this set is so Big and Bold it needed to be the Magenta Madness.

So I decided for the Gold that I was going to use Gold Embossing Powder
and then stamp the solid stamped images with a mixture
of 1st and 2nd generation Magenta Madness ink...

Ink your Stamp image up with Versamark, it is hard to see on Whisper White
BUT you need to use this ink to add embossing powder to it so it sticks.

Then we added the Gold Embossing Powder to the Versamark inked image

If you are NEW to stamping you may have not heard the term 1st and 2nd generation ink.
Let me explain exactly what that is...
So when you first ink up you Stamp into your Classic Stampin Pad and stamp directly
onto your cardstock this is called 1st generation stamping.
So to now do 2nd generation stamping it is using the ink that remains on the stamp
and stamping onto your cardstock (without re-inking the stamp into the ink)
this gives you a softer tone of the colours that you have used.

So To A Wild Rose is a 3 Step Stamp (photopolymer stamp set)
You can stamp them in a couple of different ways BUT
I find the way that I do it, I get the best results...
Because I am heat embossing with Gold Embossing Powder, I chose to stamp the outline
Then heat set the embossing powder, then I add my solid images...
These 3 floral stamps all layer directly over the top of each other.
Seen here in these photos. Sorry Phone photos just don't cut it...
I apologise.

Here is the finished flower

Once the flowers are all stamped and die cut, I then stamped and die cut the leaves.
Now it is time to put the card together...

I have used Sharon Armstong's Fun Fold before as it makes a quick and easy card.
I call it a hinged panel card...

My card is Basic Black.
You fold your card in half like a normal card then from the centre fold you
add a score line 1 1/4" in from there and crease you card...
This panel now gets adhered to your card and you only have the remaining part
of the card that opens.

I decorated the adhered Black 1 1/4" panel with Whisper White 1 1/8" x 4"
and Pool Party almost 1" x 3 7/8" which
I embossed with
Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.

Now onto decorating the front of the Basic Black card.
Cut 2 Whisper White Cardstock to 4 3/8" x 4", 1 for the front and 1 for inside panel.

Arrange your die cut Flowers and Leaves around your card until you are happy.
I adhered 2 Flowers and all the leaves with Tombow Multi purpose glue
then I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of my last flower to give the card
some depth and dimension.

Next I added some Gold Thread from Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack
to my card and tied a bow on the front...
Next I added Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the front panel to finish it off.

Now for the inside panel, use 2nd piece of Whisper White Cardstock
we must NEVER leave the inside of our card naked LOL
OR the envelope either...
Using the Leaf stamp and Pool Party I added a leaf to the inside panel.
