Hey, hey! I am starting to blog again after taking the Month of March off. I must admit, that having a little time off has helped to renew my love of stamping and being creative.
There is no better way to kick off my return than with the Repeat Impressions, What If Wednesday Challenge on The House That Stamps Built blog.
This week Wendy (owner of RI) has chosen the following color palette for us to work with:
I chose to use the White as my accent color and this is the card I came up with.
I started with a kraft cardbase folded into a gatefold card and added a white panel to each side. Next, I embossed two kraft panels and added one to each flaps. Next, I stamped the RI Strawberries 515-L onto a white circle and colored it with markers. I wanted to keep to the challenge colors, so I used a khaki color for the leaves as the khaki marker had that kraft color with a little tone of green and I thought it would work well.
Next, I stamped the RI Thanks a Bunch #1307-E on a smaller white circle in black ink. This is a one line stamp and I needed it to fit in the circle so I cut the stamp enabling me to stack the words. I can still use this as a one line stamp, so this is a win-win for me. :)
I mounted each of the circles onto a coordinating red scalloped circle and adhered them to the front of the card.
I also added a white panel with the strawberries on it to the inside of the card for a nice place to write your personal message.
Be sure to check out each of my fellow Rock Star's blogs and see what they have created using Wendy's color challenge.
We would love to have you play along with the challenge as well, head on over to The House That Stamps Built for all of the details. Wendy will be giving away an awesome prize to one lucky person who plays along :)
