Week 13 – Crushed Curry
Crushed Curry is part of the regals family and it’s a rich, deep, warm yellow colour…which is why I thought it would be perfect to use with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.
This bundle includes the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and the Sunflowers Dies but you can buy both the stamp set and the dies separately too.
I’ve seen so many different and eye-catching cards made with the sunflower bundle but for my cards tonight I’ve decided to keep to a very simple colour palette. I personally like Crushed Curry best when it’s paired with either black and white. or grey and white.
First things first – colouring in the sunflowers. You can do this in a variety of ways but love water colouring so I stamped in Stazon onto shimmery white card stock and then water coloured using the new Water Painters to lift Crushed Curry ink off the lid of my stamp pad.
Once the sunflowers were water coloured and dried they were die cut with the matching dies.
The custom background for my “Let’s Celebrate You” card was created using the side of my Crushed Curry ink pad randomly stamped onto a large acrylic block and then sprayed with water from a Stampin’ Spritzer.
This created a marbled ink effect on the block – I carefully placed the card stock onto the marbled block to transfer the ink to the paper before letting it dry and embossing it with the tasteful textile embossing folder.
The “Let’s Celebrate You” sentiment was stamped onto Crushed Curry card stock in Versamark Ink before heat embossing with White Emboss powder.
These adorable dies were used to die cut leaves and foliage out of Crushed Curry card stock.
My second card was quickly created to use up my leftover water coloured sunflowers.
I really love the sentiments in this set, especially the mixed font on this “Thanks a bunch” sentiment.
I have to confess I think I actually prefer this card to the first because the Basic Black background layer really makes the sunflowers pop!
Liking my card made from leftovers more than the original card is starting to become a habit with me!
Thanks to the deep vibrant yellow of Crushed Curry, both cards are so bright and happy in real life, but I’m curious to find out which card you prefer?
