Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Splash Challenge 14


Welcome to a NEW Color Splash Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments
This week we have 4 cool colors to play with.

I was inspired to create this card from one that I saw Eva Costigan make. I loved the simplicity of it and yet it made a bold statement at the same time.

I began with a Close to Cocoa card stock base. Next I took scraps of Old Olive, So Saffron, Regal Rose, and Melon Mambo card stock and stamped the floral image from the Pocket Silhouettes set in Versa Mark ink. Next I heat set White Stampin' Emboss Powder with my Heat Tool. After Punching out the stamped/embossed image with the Curly Label Punch, each label was adhere to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals to add depth.


I wanted to share my trick for inserting ribbon through the side of a card. I learned this from Kristina Werner and LOVE it! I do this a lot!
Start by laying your ribbon where you'd like it to lie on your card.






Next make two tick marks with a pencil on either 

side of the ribbon at the edge of the card.












Take a good pair of scissors (I use these) and carefully make a cut from one tick mark to the other on the seam of the card.















Here's what the slit looks like opened. Erase the tick marks and insert the ribbon.













And voila! The bow can slip through the slit and be tied around the inside if the card.














The last step was to stamp this sentiment from the Something Sweet set in Versa Mark ink and emboss it as well with 

I hope this inspires you to come create with us this week. we'd love for you to join us and your project doesn't have to be a card. Why not make a scrapbook page in honor of National Scrapbook Month?
