It's Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players. The talented Lesley is hosting a color challenge this week: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party! Remember that you can substitute with similar colors if you don't have these! At The Paper Players, we are all about having fun! I hope you enjoy today's quick and easy vintage style card.
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: The Power of Three
Today's finished card measures 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".
- A Trio of Images! The "Stamp" image from Fresh Vintage was inked with Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder, and Pool Party and stamped onto Whisper White card stock. They were then punched out using the 1" Punch and mounted onto coordinating card stock squares punched using the Postage Stamp Punch. These were adhered to Crumb Cake card stock and zipped through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A second set of images were stamped and punched out. These were in turn "popped up" onto the top of the embossed stamps using Stampin' Dimensionals. Basic Pearls on each stamp provide the perfect accent.
- A Trio of Sentiments! Sentiments from Loving Thoughts were inked in Early Espresso and stamped onto Naturals Ivory card stock. They were then flagged on one end, while the opposite end was curled and separated into two layers. The bottom layer was flagged and slightly curled for a different look.
- A Trio of Ribbons! Ribbons do not have to match! Snippets of Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding, Victoria Crochet Lace Trim, and Pool Party 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon add a "pop" of color and texture!
Today's card also holds a triple meaning: I DREAM up my design and CREATE my card, all in the hope of INSPIRING you! And I do hope that you found today's post inspiring in some way. Won't you please let me know in your comment? And as always, if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time...
