The Color Hue Challenge #16

 It's time for a NEW challenge over on the Color Hues Blog!  We are challenging you to use the colors Yellow & Grey!

Here's my take...
 
I started off by using Gina K. Designs Sweet Corn and Amalgam Whisper inks for my colors. For the background panel I added a little ink blending with the Whisper ink and the Fizzy Stencil. I then stamped and cut out a bunch of the floral images from the Sentimental Bouquet stamp set and arranged on the card. The sentiment is from the Easter Blessings stamp set that is part of the Forever Flowers Card Kit
 
Card Measurements:
Whisper Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" (5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4")
White Stitched Panel: 5" x 3 3/4"
Whisper Scallop Frame: 4 1/2" x 3 1/4"
Black Sentiment Strip: 1 1/2" x 3/8"

We are super excited to share the projects we have been creating with this months sweet release with you! I created two Wedding themed cards to share with you! 
 
My first card features the NEW Mr. & Mrs. stamp set. I wanted to create a clean and simple Wedding Shower card. I stared off by creating the background panel by dry embossing the NEW Script Stencil (check your die cut machine manual for the proper sandwich). I then stamped the wedding dress image with black pigment ink and embossed it using clear embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of vellum with black pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder before I wrapped it around the dress panel to hide the adhesive. For embellishment I added a few black pearls from my stash.
 
Card Measurements:
White A2 Top Fold Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2")
White (Embossed) Panel: 4" x 5 1/4"
Black Mat: 3 1/2" x 4 13/16"
White (Stamped) Panel:3 7/16" x 4 11/16"
Vellum Sentiment Strip: 4 1/4" x 3/4"

My second card features the NEW Everyday Greetings 2 stamp set. I started off by embossing the background panel with a retired Cuttlebug embossing folder. I then cut out a Heart shape and embossed the Best Wishes sentiment from the set with silver embossing powder. I added a strip of sheer ribbon under the heart and scattered some white pearls from my stash. I think it looks like the beading on a wedding dress.

Card Measurements:
White A2 Top Fold Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2")
White (Embossed) Panel: 4" x 5 1/4"
Heart: 2 7/8" x 3"

Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps | Sympathy Morning Glories

 Hello Sweet Friends!

Stopping in with an Encouragement card featuring Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps Sympathy Morning Glories stamp set.

I started off with a little ink blending by masking off a panel and using Innocent Pink, Sweet Corn & Dusty Rose ink.  Next I took the splatter stamp from the Texture Tiles 1 set and inked it up with Dusty Rose to add a little texture. I held the stamp in my hand (did not mount on a block) to give me the flexibility to add the texture to the areas on top & bottom of the ink blended area. I then used my Misti to stamp the Morning Glories and sentiment. For embellishment I added a few Clear Quartz Solid Rhinestones.

Card Measurements:
White A2 Top Fold Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2")
Black Mat: 4" x 5 1/4"
White Panel: 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
