Today’s Wonderful Romance, celebration card, is all about coloring.
My favorite tools for coloring are the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers, offered in a wide range of colors. For this project I used: Light Mossy Meadow, Light Old Olive, Light & Dark Granny Apple Green, Dark Pineapple Punch, Dark Crumb Cake, and Light and Dark Calypso Coral.
I first stamped the floral bouquet (Wonderful Romance stamp set) in Crumb Cake ink on Shimmery White cardstock. Before coloring, I used the bouquet’s die from Wonderful Floral for cutting.
The Shimmery White cardstock has nice thickness, so I couldn’t resisted placing my bouquet on dimensionals.
My layout for the bouquet was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) this sketch.
After playing around with angled sections, I decided to go with plain rectangles on the diagonal corners. The top piece is 2″ X 3″, and the bottom piece is 2″ X 2 1/4″. These fit nicely on the layer of Whisper White cardstock, which is 4″ X 5 1/4″, layered on the 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ Thick Whisper White card base. The striped paper is from the Neutrals 6X6 Designer Series Paper in Pear Pizzazz.
Just one more item would complete my card front; a word from the Well Written die set, “hooray,” and the exclamation point. We use a lot of those in our online writing! Don’t we? I rolled these through the Big Shot with Pear Pizzazz cardstock, and adhered them with tiny, tiny, tiny dots of Tombow liquid glue.
I hope you enjoyed seeing today’s bouquet, good for any celebration. But, I like the way “hooray” rhymes with “birthday,” so it will probably end up saying, “It’s your birthday,” on the inside.
Don’t forget to go shopping at my store, while the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration items are available! (now through March 31st while supplies last).
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
