Colour Challenge - Shaded Spruce, Soft Suede and Grapefruit Grove

Today's the day I post a colour challenge for you and a card that I made using these colours.  Today the colours are:



I had a specific stampset in mind when I decided on this colour combination - Rooted in Nature, but didn't know what the card would be.  Sympathy cards are always hard, but Rooted in Nature works really well.

Here's the card I designed.


Instructions

  1. Cut Soft Suede cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Grapefruit Grove cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Whisper White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  4. Tap Block D onto Soft Suede ink pad and then stamp off twice by tapping gently on paper.  Now press Block D onto the Whisper White cardstock.
  5. Stamp tree in Shaded Spruce in the middle of Soft Suede square.
  6. Stamp sentiment in Shaded Spruce
  7. Wrap Nature's Twine around card three times and adhere to back with Snail.
  8. Adhere Whisper White cardstock to Grapefruit Grove cardstock with Snail
  9. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  10. Cut Whisper White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  11. Stamp sentiment in Grapefruit Grove and tree in Shaded Spruce
  12. Adhere to inside of card using Snail

    Can you CASE it Friday - Still Scenes

    Today I CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) a card from the Holiday Catalogue using the Still Scenes Bundle.  I absolutely love this bundle for making shaker cards, but the card I CASE'd used some the die cut shapes as the focal point for the card.

    Check it out!


    CASE'ing the Stampin' Up! catalogues is a great way to get inspiration.  I was so focused on the thought of shaker cards, that I hadn't thought about using the die cut shapes without it being a snow globe!

    Instructions

    1. Cut Garden Green cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold on half to form cardbase.
    2. Cut Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper 5" x 4" and adhere to cardbase using Snail.
    3. Cut Velum Cardstock 4 3/4" x 3 3/4" and adhere to cardbase using Snail.  (TIP:  put Snail in the middle of the card to hold vellum.  By doing this, you will not see the Snail under the Velum.)
    4. Cut 2 sets of trees from Pretty Peacock cardstock.
    5. Cut a deer from Gold Foil Sheet.
    6. Cut Crumb Cake cardstock 1 3/4" x 3 3/8" and stamp sentiment using Garden Green ink.
    7. Cut ribbon 15" long and wrap back and forth along centre of card.  Adhere using Snail.
    8. Adhere sentiment using Dimensionals over top of ribbon.
    9. Adhere trees on top of sentiment using Dimensionals
    10. Adhere deer using Snail.
    11. Adhere sequin and snowflakes using Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.  (TIP: use putty end of Take Your Pick tool to pick up individual sequins and place on small dobs of glue on cardbase).
    12. Stamp sentiment in Garden Green on a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
    13. Adhere to inside of card using Snail

      Still Scenes Shaker Card


      Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm participating in Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.  I'm so excited to be part of this training program and happy to participate in my very first Blog Hop! The purpose of the group is for the group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that are part of the program...to share ideas and to learn from each other...to help us in our Stampin' Up! Business.

      Today you will "hop around the world" and check out the amazing projects created by these very talented demonstrators.  You are currently visiting Melva Peters from British Columbia, Canada.  Please take some time to check out all of the blogs on the list below!

      I love making Shaker Cards and the Snow Globe Shaker Domes make them so much easier than in the past!

      Here's a card we made in my Stamp Club earlier this month.  It feature the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper as the background along with two adorable polar bears.


      Instructions

      1. Cut Night of Navy cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base
      2. Cut Silver Glimmer paper 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to the cardbase.
      3. Cut Designer Series Paper 3 3/4" x 5".  
      4. Cut Globe Circle from the Designer Series Paper approximately 1/2" from top of card.
      5. Cut a Window Sheet 3" x 3" and adhere the cut out semi-circle Designer Series Paper to the middle of the Window Sheet using Snail - with scene facing frontwards.
      6. Pour some Snowflake Sequins and Ice Stampin' Glitter in the Shaker Dome.  Gently remove the adhesive from the back of the dome and adhere the window sheet over the back with the Designer Series Paper in the middle of the semi-circle.  Rub around the edge to seal the adhesive on the window sheet.
      7. Remove the adhesive from the front of the dome and place the Designer Series Paper semi-circle hole over top.  Rub around the end to seal the adhesive to the Designer Series Paper.
      8. Adhere the Designer Series Paper to the Silver Glimmer Paper using Dimensionals.
      9. Cut the base of the shaker globe from a small piece of Silver Glimmer Paper.  Adhere to the cardbase using Snail (TIP - using a Silicone Mat, put Snail on the back of the silver glimmer paper piece.  Turn over on the Silicone Mat and use an Adhesive Remove to remove the excess Snail from hole openings).
      10. Cut a 1" x 3" piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamp sentiment in Night of Navy.
      11. Adhere to the cardbase using Dimensionals
      12. Wrap twine around the top of the card twice and tie a bow.
      13. Cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Stamp sentiment in Night of Navy
