If you saw my post from yesterday, you know Stampin’ Up!® is having a 24 hour stamp sale today to kick of this year’s Online Extravaganza event. One of the stamp sets included in the sale is the Remarkable You set, so I thought I would share a card I made today that uses it. If you like it, be sure to click the link in my Product List at the end of the post to head over to my online store to buy it. It’s 20% off today, but that price is good for TODAY ONLY, so don’t miss out if you want it!
I started by stamping the lily image from the Remarkable You stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 3.25 x 4.5″. I stamped it using Memento Tuxedo Black ink since I wanted to color it using the new Stampin’ Blends markers. Since they are alcohol ink, Stampin’ Up recommends only using them on images stamped with Memento ink since our regular Archival Basic Black ink will smear with the alcohol markers.
For the coloring, I used the following Blends:
- Light Smoky Slate
- Light Daffodil Delight
- Dark Daffodil Delight
- Light Pumpkin Pie
- Light Old Olive
- Dark Old Olive
- Light Pool Party
- Color Lifter
After I finished the coloring, I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) at the bottom of the panel using the Memento ink again so the black would match. I matted the panel of a piece of Basic Black card stock cut to 3-3/8 x 4-5/8″. I wrapped the panel with Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon and finished it in a flat knot.
For the background, I cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock to 4.25 x 5.5″. I stamped the leaf image from the same stamp set repeatedly over the entire panel using Pool Party ink. Doing a tone-on-tone kept the background from being too busy and detracting from the delicate lilies on the focal image, but it also gave the card some much needed texture.
To assemble the card, I adhered the background panel to a top-folding card base made from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I adhered the focal panel on top of that using Stampin’ Dimensionals and that completed the card.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this card. Don’t forget, if you’d like to purchase this gorgeous stamp set, it’s available TODAY ONLY for 20% off. Just click the image below in my Product List to order.
