Hello from a cold and wet Perth! The best way to keep my hands warm is with stamping! And hubby has a Beef Bourguignon going in the slow cooker that will definitely go down well with a glass of Shiraz later! Perfect for an almost Winter’s day.
My colour inspiration for today comes from the Global Design Project colour challenge for this week… challenge #293. I loved this colour combo so much that I created two cards!
I started with a Pale Papaya card base. I love using a tone-on-tone finish to add interest to a cardbase, this time I dry embossed a Pale Papaya cardstock layer with one of the Greenery embossing folders. This layer measures 8.5cm x 14cm. Next I stamped and die cut the blossoms and leaves from the Sweet as a Peach Bundle. For the blossoms I used Pale Papaya and for the leaves I used Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen (I stamped 2 of these). The sentiment (from the same bundle) was stamped in Evening Evergreen and die cut with the 6cm circle from the Layering Circles Dies.
Top tip! I saw a great tip for stamping with a *Distinktive stamp, shared by Patty Bennett on her YouTube channel. Use a Sponge Dauber or Blending Brush to add ink to the stamp instead of adding the stamp to the Classic Stampin’ Pad.
*”Distinktive stamps create different opacities in a single stamped image.” – page 4, Annual Catalogue

I love the simplicity of this card and I will definitely keep this design in my ‘back pocket’ for when I have to make more than one or create a quick card to send.
