I have a fun, quick and simple card for you today on Simple Sunday… the day of the week I dedicate to easy to create cards using just a few supplies.
I am loving the selection of Designer Series Papers in this years Annual catalogue…. actually I love the ones in the Autumn / Winter catalogue too! But this particular pack has gone un-loved so far. This card uses the Just Add Colour Specialty Designer Series Paper, this paper is slightly thicker than the standard Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and is only printed on one side. It comes in white, with black print featuring lots of different designs including these fun feathers. I added colour to this Designer Series Paper using a Sponge Brayer. I love my Sponge Brayer, it is a great way to add an ombre effect to your cards. I do of course have some top tips!
- Roll your brayer lightly over your inkpad, picking up a little ink
- Starting off your card stock, and at the bottom, run the brayer backwards and forwards across the card. This is a slow build of colour, so go back to the ink pad, pick up more ink and repeat
- Work the brayer up the card stock, building more ink near the bottom of the card and less as you go further up
The sentiment is take from Lovely Inside & Out, and is heat embossed in Copper… so pretty. The card is finished with a layer of Bermuda Bay card stock to coordinate with the ombre ink! and a Basic Black card base, and a trio of White Perfect Accents…. yes, I know they are not white! I am loving accents, but I don’t always want White…. did you know that you can peal the white paper backing off and adhere them with Fine Tip Glue for Perfect Accents in any colour?! Perfect!
