Today I've made cards using 3 more of the retiring core colours from Stampin' Up!. The colours are Blushing Bride, Soft Suede and Mint Macaron. This selection of soft subtle colour work so well together.
As it's Tuesday I have a fun technique to share using the above colours and the Nature's Prints stamps. I'm calling this technique a Mini One Sheet Wonder. One sheet wonders have been a firm favourite of mine since I started stamping. They're a great project for beginners and avid crafters alike. They all start out the same way with a piece of plain cardstock. You then stamp all over the cardstock and finally cut it to work on mulriple cards in various layouts.
For my mini version I started out with a piece of basic white cardstock measuring 10cm x 14.5cm . I then randomly stamped in all three colours using a variety of the stamps over the entire piece.
Now to create cards using the pieces. I started with the circle. I embossed a mat of white cardstock using the Fern embossing folder . I then mounted both the mat and the stamped circle onto soft suede cardstock. A simple sentiment onto a white circle and that to was mounted onto a soft suede circle was added.
I then used the square which the circle came out of. I made a 10.5cm x 10.5cm card base from blushing bride cardstock and cut a 10.5cm x 10.5cm mat as well. I embossed the mat with the fern embossing folder and adhered it to the card front. I then popped the square of the stamped one sheet wonder up onto 3d foam and adhered it to the card front. I stamped a sentiment onto a white circle and mounted it onto a blushing bride one and adhered it to one side on the front.
