True Love Designer Series Paper Meets Stampin' Blends
The black and white True Love designer series paper makes beautiful cards. You can use it alone to create sophisticated monochromatic cards - which I have done previously - or color it with Stampin' Blends, which I do here. Watch the video on how to do these cards here.
Or to be precise, I partially colored it with Stampin' Blends. I chose three flowers located in a triangle (that is more pleasing to the eye) and colored them with light and dark rococo rose and granny apple green Stampin' Blends.
The first one I placed on a white card base with a piece of basic black behind. The second one I added a layer of rococo rose cardstock. Which do you like better?
I hope you like the card. If you try it please tag me so that I can see it. Thanks for spending some time with me!
Ingredients: Blossoms in Bloom stamp set (for sentiments); layering circles dies; thick basic white, basic white, basic black, and rococo rose card stocks; rococo rose ink; rococo rose and granny apple green Stampin' Blends; basic pearls; blushing bride metallic ribbon; liquid glue, glue dots, and Stampin' dimensionals; trimmer; Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine (Big Boss).
Recipe: Cut a piece of thick basic white horizontally in half, score in half again, and fold (optional: use your bone folder to create a crisp fold). Cut a piece of rococo rose one tick smaller than the card base. Cut a piece of basic black to 5.25x 3.50". Cut a piece of True Love DSP to 5x3.75".
Color three of the flowers on the DSP with the Stampin' Blends as shown. It is more pleasing to the eye if you color them in a triangle.
Using liquid glue, adhere the rococo rose to the thick basic white, and adhere the basic black to the card askew. Cut a piece of blushing bridge metallic ribbon to 8" and attach the basic black cardstock with the metallic side down. Adhere the True Love DSP on top. Wrap the ribbon to the front and tie a knot, adhering the center of the knot to the card base with a glue dot and the ends of the knot with glue dots.
Stamp the sentiment in rococo rose on basic white and cut out with a layering circle die. Cut out a piece of rococo rose with the next largest scalloped die. Adhere the sentiment to the rococo rose scalloped circle using liquid glue. Adhere to the card front with Stampin' dimensionals. Add three basic pearls.
