I am happy to be hopping with the Color Fusers this month! Join us the first Monday of each month as we create using the same color palate. This month includes one of my favorites, Gorgeous Grape!
I love the teapot in the Tea Together stamp set from the 2019 Occasions catalog. And as part of the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion, the coordinating Tea Time Framelit dies are FREE with a qualifying purchase!
This month, I choose to create an elegant card using shimmery white cardstock, and used the Smoky Slate for depth, allowing the Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape to add the perfect pop of color.
To recreate this card:
- Cut a Shimmery White card base 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2"
- Die cut the left edge of the cardbase with the Delicate Lace edgelit die
- Cut a Shimmery White layer 3 1/2" x 5 1/4" and emboss using the FREE Country Floral Sale-A-Bration embossing folder
- Cut a 1/2" x 3 1/2" strip of Smoky Slate cardstock
- Use a Highland Heather ink wash over Shimmery White cardstock, than stamp and die cut the teapot and flowers
The ink wash gives the teapot a subtle bit of color. I added more ink to the wash for the flowers. To create depth, layer several Smoky Slate teapots behind the white tea pot. Little die cut scraps from the Delicate Lace edgelit die work perfectly to add detail to the teapot. A strip of Smoky Slate cardstock grounds the teapot and adds a great base for the Gorgeous Grape striped ribbon. For the finishing touch, I added some Glitter Enamel Dots to the centers of the flowers.
I hope you like it! Thanks for hopping along today. Next up is Bonnie O'Neill at Bonnie Stamps. She always has a great project to share, check it out!
