The Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog is a great place to get inspiration to create. I CASEd the Colorful Seasons card on page 56. CASE means to Copy And Selectively Edit – so copy but make the card your own. I did change it up a bit but is still quite similar.
Start with a Whisper White cs card base. Cut a Shimmery White cs panel. Use an Aqua Painter to lay down a light coat of water on the Shimmery White cs panel. Add a few drops of Calypso Coral ink refill and Mint Macaron ink refill to a clear block – making sure the colors don’t mix. Then use the Aqua Painter to add the ink to the damp Shimmer White cs panel creating a color wash. Set aside to dry.
On Whisper White cs stamp the large solid image leaf from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in 2 generation (stamped off) Calypso Coral ink. Then stamp the large outline leaf image over the solid image in Calypso Coral ink. Stamp the small solid image leaf in both Calypso Coral ink and Mint Macaron ink on Whisper White cs. Use the Seasonal Layers dies to die cut all of the leaves.
When your color washed Shimmery White cs panel is dry – wrap it with the Mint Macaron Textile ribbon using glue dots to secure the ends to the back of the panel. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the wrapped Shimmery White cs to the card base.
Stamp the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set on Mint Macaron cs in Calypso Coral ink. Die cut out the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes (2 3/8″ stitched circle). Use Stampin’ Dimensionals (placed in the middle of the stitched circle so you can tuck leaves under) to adhere the sentiment stitched circle to the right of the card front overlapping the ribbon.
Build the card front by adding leaves around the sentiment stitched circle using glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then tie a bow in the Mint Macaron Textile ribbon and use a glue dot to add it to the card front on the left side of the sentiment stitched circle overlapping some of the leaves. Add Basic Sequins to the card front around the leaves.
You don’t need to add an inside layer to write your message due to using a Whisper White cs card base. I did stamp the leave images in Calypso Coral ink & Mint Macaron ink to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
