A Stamp Off Color Challenge

Hello everyone!  Thanks for joining us again on our bi-weekly Stamp Off Challenge.  This week we have a color challenge.

Now, I am not sure if Buffy or Jackie gave us these colors but I do have to admit I had a hard time using them.  They are definitely outside of my comfort zone but after a lot of trial and error, I managed to make this card.

I used the stamp set called Bike Ride.  This set has matching Framelits called Build a Bike and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. The thing I love about this set is  there is a matching Framelit for every piece of the bike.  Plus, the stamp set is a two-step stamp set which means it takes two or more stamps to make an image.  For example, the flower outline is one stamp, the flowers are another and the leaves are a third.  When I was making this card, I tried a bunch of different color combinations for the bike.  This one seemed to work the best.

Then I needed to work on the background.  I tried it with just plain cardstock but it looked too boring.  Then I tried using an Embossing Folder but it didn’t quite look right so I decided to use the Embossing Paste with the brick Decorative Mask.  I like how that turned out much better.

The sentiment is from Eastern Beauty.

Now let’s go see how Buffy and Jackie did with this color combination.

Daisy Delight & Embossing Paste

This is the first card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting.  We used a couple of new products from the Stampin’ Up! 2017/2018 Annual Catalog to make it.

The first product we used is the new Embossing Paste.  Where have you been all my life?  I love this stuff.  It comes in white but you can make it any color you want by adding a couple of drops of ink to it.  In this case, we added So Saffron ink.  This paste is great.  It adds a lot of texture to the card and Stampin’ Up! makes it is so easy to do.  You can buy the Embossing Paste, the Pattern Party Decorative Masks (we used the brick one) and the Palette Knives.   We put a little paste on the Silicone Craft Sheet, added the ink and mixed it up with a Palette Knife.  Then we held down the mask with a couple of pieces of Washi Tape onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and spread the past over the mask.  It dries fairly quickly so make sure you wash the Silicone Sheet, Palette Knife and Mask right after spreading it.

The stamp set is called Daisy Delight.  It has a matching punch called Daisy Punch and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.
