Good morning! Today I’m sharing a friendship card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour bundle and the sweet Hand-Penned designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned designer series paper to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with liquid glue. I cut a stitched scalloped rectangle from Basic White with the Scalloped Contours dies and used the spatter stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour stamp set with Pool Party ink to add color and texture to the background.
I stamped the flower and stem from the Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on another panel of Basic White and stamped the flower fill stamp in stamped off Cinnamon Cider ink. I squeezed some Soft Succulent ink into the top of the ink pad cover and used a blender pen to pick up some ink and used it to color the leaves. I cut out the flower with the coordinating die and popped it onto the scalloped rectangle with dimensionals on the top and a glue dot at the bottom of the stem. I adhered the panel to the front of the card with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Pool Party panel and cut it out with another Scalloped Contours die to make the label. I adhered the label to the front of the card with dimensionals and glue dots. I made a loopy triple bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the stem with a glue dot and finished the front with three 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the side and upper corner of a Basic white panel. I stamped the flower fill stamp using stamped off Cinnamon Cider ink and colored the leaves in Soft Succulent using a Blender Pen. Then I stamped the spatter stamp in Pool Party ink over the flowers. I adhered a strip of Hand-Penned DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour stamp bundle is a two step stamp set that makes pretty abstract flowers and it’s really nice to have coordinating dies that cut out the flowers. And the scalloped rectangles are really awesome – they’re sure to become one of your go to die sets for layering your cards.
