It’s time for another Watercooler Challenge! This one is a color challenge from Susan Horr. Here are the colors.
Aren’t they gorgeous together? Very springy!
Here’s the card I made.
I stamped the Love Is Kindness tulips on Pool Party, then used the “Out of the Box” technique to die cut them with a Circles framelit. I layered it to a Sahara Sand Darling Doily die cut after coloring it with Stampin’ Write Markers. (Tips: Cover the sentiment with tape, then ink the stamp. Be sure to remove the tape before stamping! When you’re ready to stamp the sentiment, cover the image with tape – but be sure the image is completely dry before stamping so you don’t get ghost shadows! I stamp it on my scratch paper several times before taping and inking until I know there’s no moisture on the part I don’t want shown. For the doily: use a layer of waxed paper between the card stock and the thinlit, and run it through your Big Shot. Then remove the die with the cardstock still in it and run it through again – on top of 3-4 folded, new dryer sheets. All the little pieces will be left on the dryer sheet when you carefully remove the die cut. Cool, right? You can do both steps at once, but it sometimes tears my card stock, so I do the extra step.)
For the base, I embossed the Calypso Coral layer with the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, tied some Sahara Sand Lace Trim around it, and layered it to a So Saffron card.
So now – it’s your turn! Create a project using the colors for the challenge, then post it to the Watercooler Challenge blog. Be sure to follow all the instructions in uploading your project, and you could win a super cute badge to add to your blog or web site.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
