This lovely Glimmer Gal team color challenge came from Lorraine of Lorraine’s Crafting Corner. I love the outline and watercolor look of the Host set Soft Spring and I thought it would be pretty in these colors.
Start with a Pear Pizzazz cs card base. Cut a Flirty Flamingo cs panel, dry emboss with the Subtle 3D embossing folder – don’t forget to use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate to make your sandwich – and then glue it to the card base.
Cut the Seaside Spray cs panel and the Whisper White cs front panel. Dry emboss the Seaside Spray cs panel with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder. Stamp the long stems image from the Soft Springs stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink along the bottom edge of the Whisper White cs front panel. Stamp the inside leaf image in 2nd generation (stamped off) Pear Pizzazz ink on the long stems image’s leaves. Stamp the flowers in the Seaside Spray ink on the flower stem.
Stamp dragonfly images on the Whisper White cs front panel in Memento Black ink. Also stamp another dragonfly on a piece of Whisper White cs scrap in Memento Black ink. Color the wings with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend. Add Wink of Stella to the dragonflies and flowers for sparkle. Use Paper Snips to fussy cut out the dragonfly on the Whisper White cs scrap and then use a Stampin’ Dimensional to attach it to the stamped Whisper White cs front panel.
Use glue to attach the top edge of the Whisper White cs front panel to the embossed Seaside Spray cs front panel. Cut a piece of Scalloped Seaside Spray Linen ribbon, wrap it around the cs front panels hiding where they overlap – securing the middle to the card front and the ends to the back of the card with Tear & Tape. Attach the embossed Seaside Spray cs/ Whisper White cs front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.
Stamp the sentiment from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White cs. Die cut out the sentiment with the Frosted Bouquet Dies. Die cut out a sentiment layer in Pear Pizzazz cs with the Frosted Bouquet Dies. Glue the stamped Whisper White cs label to the Pear Pizzazz cs label. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals and Tear & Tape to adhere the sentiment label to the center of the card front overlapping the ribbon. Add White Basic Adhesive – Backed Sequins to the sentiment label and card front.
Don’t forget to add a Whisper White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the stems, flowers, and dragonfly to the inside panel and the back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my Glimmer Gals team June color challenge. You can earn the Soft Sayings Host stamp set with Stampin’ Rewards and purchase everything else I used to make this card in my Online Store – including the new style carry- over Subtle 3D embossing folder now.
