After a few hot, humid days earlier this week, the fall weather has been rolling in. I love the cooler temps, and as always I'm looking forward to the leaves changing color. But I thought I'd squeeze in one last summer hurrah with some bright red flowers.
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Abstract Flower and Vine (Rubbernecker Stamps)
Paper: Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White card stock; Neutrals Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack
Ink: Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive, Marina Mist, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Bitty Buttons, Marina Mist polka dot ribbon, twine (unknown), clear and gold Wink of Stella glitter brush pens, Glue Dots, Dimensionals
I loved the color combination on the packaging label for this stamp set, so I replicated it as close as I could with Stampin' Up! colors: Real Red, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive, Marina Mist, and Crushed Curry.
I stamped the focal layer (also closely following the packaging) and matted it with a piece of diagonally striped paper from the Neutrals DSP Stack. For embellishment, I added a tab of Marina Mist ribbon and a small clear button with a twine bow. It's hard to see in the picture, but I also painted Wink of Stella glitter on the butterflies and yellow dots for just a little sparkle.
For the card base, I used the swirl/stem image -- the same image that is stamped in black on the focal layer. I stamped it with Watermelon Wonder ink on Watermelon Wonder card stock multiple times, changing the direction each time I stamped to create a fun background. Then I adhered the focal layer to the card base with Dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by!
