.... Our CR84FN59 colours are just so warm and rich - and we have already had lots of lovely submissions - you have until Wednesday to play along with us. For this week's card I've been playing with some of my lovely new Papertrey Ink stamps and dies, as well as a super new Memory Box die.
Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Life So Sweet
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Chocolate Chip, Calypso Coral, Peach Parfait, Crumb Cake; Memento - Desert Sand, Pistachio
Dies: Papertrey Ink - Life So Sweet Dies; Memory Box - Piestra Tile
Accessories: Card from stash
I used brown card to make the base, cut a mat in crumb cake to fit and used the Memory Box die to cut the lovely trellis pattern. The roses are created in three stages - (a) stamp the solid background in the palest colour (Desert Sand), (b) the next layer in the mid shade (Peach Parfait) and finish with (c) the shadow in the darkest shade (Calypso Coral) and cut out with the co-ordinating die. The leaves are made in the same way but with only two stages. I finished off the card with this lovely sentiment. I like the way the roses stand out against the background.
