Happy Hump Day Peeps!
Popping in here for a quick share. This is a card I made yesterday for the color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The colors are soft Suede, Crumb cake and Melon Mambo. Neutral of white or vanilla. I went with a piece of Shimmer White card stock I had in my scrap pile. I stamped the flowers from the new hostess set, Simply Soft, with soft suede. I used my stamp a ma jig to add the melon mambo into the flowers. The stamp set, that will be available in July, is a 2-step stamp set and has the "fillers" for the flowers, I like that you can use it two ways, either color it in yourself or use the solid stamps to add color.
I keep my card very simple, that way the flower image is the star.
I used a base of soft suede and then added a strip of crumb cake on each side and a bit of DS paper from the Elegant Soiree paper pack.
I added the main image, which is matted with some melon mambo card stock, to the base with some dimesionals. I pierced all around the main piece using my piercing tool and matt pack. The sentiment comes from the "You're a Gem" stamp set and is stamped with soft suede ink. I added a few basic pearls under the sentiment. The dessert option on the challenge was to use butterflies. I added a layered butterfly to the card using the Sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wings. I layered two crumb cake butterflies and one melon mambo butterfly. I then added a couple of small pearls to the center of the butterfly.
Well, that is all from me, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
