Hi there! I'm back to share a card for two challenges tonight. I planned to post it tomorrow, but then I saw that the PDCC ends tonight and realized I'd better get it linked up!
I loved these colors at The Play Date Cafe as soon as I saw them! What a gorgeous inspiration photo! I paired up this combo with a lovely sketch at Card Patterns.
I chose to use PTI's Plum Pudding and Summer Sunrise and SU's Rose Red. The plum card base is debossed with the Music Score impression plate for a subtle texture. A wide strip of rose ribbon is layered over rose cardstock, and Summer Sunrise eyelet borders peek out from underneath.
I was fortunate enough to win the new Vintage Labels 18 stamp set from Waltzingmouse a few weeks ago, so I inked it up for this card with Perfect Plum ink. I stamped two of the labels, cut them out and layered them with foam tape. I don't have the dies for these labels yet, but they were easy to cut out by hand!
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Plum Pudding, Summer Sunrise, white), Stampin' Up! (Rose Red)
Stamps: Waltzingmouse (Vintage Labels 18), Papertrey Ink (Signature Series: Dress Form)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Perfect Plum)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (eyelet border die, Music Score impression plate), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories: Stampin' Up! (Rose Red ribbon), Me & My Big Ideas (rhinestone)
Just one other tip I thought I'd share. I've noticed that when using a clear stamp with any of Stampin' Up!'s Classic dye inks, the ink tends to bead up on the stamp and leaves an uneven impression. A simple fix is to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the image and stamp it a second time. You can see what a difference it makes in this before and after photo:
Thanks for stopping by, friends! Have a good one!
