Now on to the Blogger Challenge this week. This week was a "color" challenge:
Greens/White (Neutrals as needed).
First up I used "Black" as my neutral color.
I won this wonderful stamp set, (Shamrock Blessings) from Our Craft Lounge and just had to ink it up for this challenge.
I stamped the shamrocks with Kiwi Kiss ink on Whisper White card stock and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I layered this onto Old Olive card stock cut with Labels 8 Nestabilitie Dies.
I added three 3mm Black Currant Sprinkles from (Annabelle Stamps) These are so gorgeous you really need to see them in real life to truly appreciate how pretty they are.
My background papers are from Stampin'Up! I also embossed a piece of whisper white card stock with the Moroccan Screen embossing folder. The ribbon is black velvet from a retired SU ribbon pack.
I liked the layout but changed a few things to make this card my own.
Again I used the Shamrock Blessings stamp set from Our Craft Lounge.
For this card I chose, Kraft card stock as my Neutral color. I stamped the shamrocks in, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive and Always Artichoke inks and punched them out with a square punch and mounted them onto matching card stock. I embossed a piece of Kraft card stock with the Houndstooth embossing folder. The sentiment was stamped with Kiwi Kiss and the "Lucky" portion colored with an Always Artichoke marker. I added a piece of DP from SU and tied some Linen thread around it. Then I used an Old Olive Felt flower, a White Flower and a Button (all SU) as an embellishment.
I really had fun with both these cards and hope you enjoy them. Be sure to stop by the BC members blogs (click on the icon on my sidebar) and check out their great cards as well using this color scheme.
