Stamp Off Color Challenge

Stamp Off Color Challenge

Welcome to a new Stamp Off Challenge with Susan, Jackie, and me. This week, we have a fun color challenge.

Are those gorgeous colors? It’s such a lovely palette. I decided to break out my Lovely Lattice Stamp Set that I selected for a free Stampin’ Up!® Sale-a-bration product for my card.

Stampin' Up!, Sale-a-bration, Lovely Lattice

First, I used the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies to create the Smoky Slate layer. I ran the 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of card stock through the Big Shot with the die that “stitches” a design into the card stock. Since the stamped image was very detailed, I didn’t add anything else to the Smoky Slate layer before adding it to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Blackberry Bliss Cardstock layer, and then to a Mango Melody card base.

Using the Stamparatus, I stamped the floral image from Lovely Lattice in Smoky Slate Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, then again in Versamark so I could emboss it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used an Aqua Painter to pick up ink from Smoky Slate, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, and Call Me Clover Classic Ink to color the flowers. After cutting it out, I sponged the edges of the lattice with Smoky Slate Classic Ink. The Mango Melody flowers needed a little more, so I used some Pumpkin Pie ink to color the centers.

I wasn’t happy with the way the Blackberry Bliss flowers turned out, so I stamped and embossed the image one more time. This time, I colored the flowers with Stampin’ Blends. Then I cut out some of the flowers and layered them back to the original with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This gave it a little more dimension, and I was much happier with the way they looked.

I stamped the sentiment from the Golden Afternoon Stamp Set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White Cardstock, then die-cut it with a die from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies.

The final touch was ribbon. The Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon worked ok with the Blackberry Bliss flowers, but I wanted it to be a little richer. I cut a strip of Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon (which is Whisper White with a silver metallic edge) and colored it with the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend, then added it to the card with a Glue Dot.

So there’s my SmokyMangoBerry card! Please head over to Susan’s and Jackie’s blogs to see what they’ve created. I know I say this every time, but I can’t wait to see what they have in store. They always blow me away with their creativity.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

    Buffy, I love the 3-d look of those raised flowers. It’s funny how sometimes the “problem” becomes the best part of the card!
