More Spice Cake

Another self-explanatory card today! Triangles of spice cake designer paper on confetti cream cardstock form the card base. The trees have been stamped in chocolate chip ink onto another piece of confetti cream cardstock. There are small, coloured inclusions in this cardstock which gives it a rustic look - ideal for today's card. The rustic feel is echoed in the layer of chocolate chip cardstock with torn edges. You can't see from this photo, but I've used textured cardstock for added character. The sentiment has been stamped with chocolate chip ink, then cut using the decorative label punch. TIP: Stamp the sentiment, then turn the punch upside down so that you position the sentiment exactly where you need it. The same punch has been used with textured chocolate chip cardstock to produce an accent layer underneath.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):
  • Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess set)
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip
  • Cardstock: Confetti Cream, Chocolate Chip
  • Other: Spice Cake DSP, Decorative Label punch, dimensionals.

Another challenge card

Today's card was inspired by another colour challenge - this time it was the Just add Ink colour challenge 112, to use the following colours:

I've used pink pirouette, crumb cake and chocolate chip inks to stamp several of the images from the spiced paisley set. I also stamped one of the images using versamark, then used heat and powder and dazzling diamonds glitter to add a little sparkle to the background layer. Next I embossed this layer using the square lattice embossing folder to add a bit of texture, and added to a chocolate chip mat and a crumb cake card base.

A strip of chocolate chip cardstock, cut with the lace ribbon border punch, provides a background for the gorgeous lace crochet trim. A double-loop bow of the lace has also been added using an antique brad.The sentiment has been stamped in chocolate chip ink onto an oval of vanilla cardstock, and added to the fabulous vintage-looking frame (cut with one of the tags dies in pink pirouette).
And I thought I was on time to post to the challenge blog! Unfortunately I forgot the time difference between here and Oz ;) Here’s a closer look at the glittered paisley - unfortunately you lose a lot of the glitter when it is embossed.
