Stampin’ Up! “Beautiful Day” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today we have a color challenge.  Today’s colors were tough for me because this is not my favorite color pallet.  But, this is why it is called, “a challenge”.    I put my thinking cap on and got to work in my craft space trying to decided how to use these colors.  My inspiration came from the “Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper Pack”.  It got me going and then inspiration hit, the new “Beautiful Day” butterfly all painted up to match.  Enjoy the hop today and let me know what you think.

Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday Another “Flying Home”

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

The Art Piece:

  • Stamp your image using the stamp from Flying Home using Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Let you image dry or run your heat gun over it to make sure the Alcohol Markers do not bleed
  • I used both the light and dark pens to highlight and shade
  • Color and shade your images, here is what I used:
  • Bermuda Bay,  for some of the roofs, square door, curtains, dormer, flowers, shutters and rooster tail and comb
  • Pumpkin Pie, was used for some of the roofs, house, leaves on flowers, chimney and banner and heart
  • Daffodil Delight, was used for houses, roofs, rooster body and bird
  • Copper,  was used for the bird house poles, framing, window box
  • Crumb Cake, for the shutters, arched front door
  •  Smokey Slate for the inside of some of the window along with light pool party for the others

More Details:

  • Attach your DSP to the card front
  • Attach your white mat to the DSP
  • Attach your art piece to the Bermuda Bay mat
  • Adhere the art piece and mat to the Bermuda Bay mat with dimensionals
  • Stamp your sentiment onto the banner using black ink. The sentiment is from the Fruit Basket stamp set
  • Attach your sentiment with dimensionals
  • Add your tiny banner and Bakers Twine bow and the card is finished.
