Welcome to week 35 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Petal Pink from the Subtles family.
My cards tonight use the stunning Friendly Hello Designer Series Paper and the Friendly Hello Stamp Set from the The Friendly Hello Bundle, which is one of the free SALE-a-bration products.
The Friendly Hello DSP is so versatile. Some images from the stamp set are designed to be stamped directly onto the paper, some of the papers are printed to look like they have already been stamped on and all the designs can just be used as they are.
To showcase this beautiful DSP I’ve made a couple of “joy fold” fancy fold cards. This simple fancy fold is a “smaller card within a card”, with the front flaps overlapping and it is a great fancy fold for using beautiful DSP.
This 30 second video shows you how this fancy fold works.
Card one is on a Basic Black card base with the top card opening to the left and the base card opening to the right. Instead of using DSP on the front of the top card, I stamped the bird from the Friendly Hello stamp set and the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set, another free SALE-a-bration stamp set.
I quickly coloured the bird and the flowers using light and dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.
Here is how my joy cards look as you open up the front flap…
…And the middle flap. This inside sentiment is also from the Special Moments stamp set.
And from above!
My second card is on a Basic White card base with the top card opening to the right, the base card opening to the left and DSP on the front flap.
To create the “Hello” sentiment I used a Post It note to mask off the word “friend” from one of the Friendly Hello stamps, inked up the stamp and them removed the post it note BEFORE stamping the sentiment onto Basic White card stock.
Both cards are embellished with the Petal Pink Elegant Faceted Gems.
