I have mentioned many times before about why I love being a part of Stampin’ Up! One of the many things that make it awesome is being able to connect with other demonstrators from around the world. I am a member of a demonstrator group on Facebook, and every week or so the admins set us a challenge – and you all know how much I love a good challenge!
A few weeks ago the challenge was ‘Pop of Colour’ – we were challenged to make a card in Basic Black or Night of Navy and White, adding a single pop of colour.
Now, I was talking about this challenge with my husband James, and he suggested Gold. I rarely get James talking about anything crafty, and his involvement in my stamping hobby is doing my accounts (no hiding any purchases around here!), so for him to actually get involved in crafty conversation meant that I HAD to take his suggestion!
Now, I usually aim to make simple projects that you can Copy and Share (CASE) without having to spend a fortune on Stamps! However, every now and again I like to go to town and make something really special – and I think this card fits into that category.
The floral stamp in the background is taken from Awesomely Artistic, stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. The Black diagonal stripes are taken from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack – I’m really getting into using stripes of Designer Series Paper on my cards at the moment, loving the extra detail it adds.
The swirl (from the Swirly Scribbles dies) is die cut from Vellum, and attached with a hint of multipurpose glue.
The card was finished with a Thanks sentiment – from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set – heat embossed in Gold, as well as a hint of Gold with the Gold Metallic Thread wrapped around the card at the edge of the Designer Series Paper.
