Week 5 – Wild Wheat
Today brings us to the fifth new In Color, Wild Wheat. I have to admit, this colour does not exactly excite me, but hey, with any luck it will grow on me!
I started this card today by designing the Patchwork Pieces die with some of the 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Packs; Lost Lagoon from the Subtles pack, Melon Mambo from the Brights pack and Wild Wheat from the In Colors pack. Because I was using 3 different colours, meant I would be able to create 3 lots of patchwork pieces. I cut some white card to the size of the large die, which I added Stampin’ Seal to the entire piece, so the patchwork pieces would be able to stick to it.
My Wild Wheat card base (27.5cm x 13cm) is folded in 3, scored @ 9.2cm & 18.4cm.
You can see the Lost Lagoon Bordered ribbon is adhered to the front section of the card only, so it can be wrapped around the card to close it.
The 3 Patchwork panels are adhered to the front, inside and the back panel. The 3rd panel has the Basic White card cut with the Radiating Stitches dies to write your message. These dies were also used to cut the heart and circle. The ‘happy birthday’ sentiment is the Wanted to Say dies. The sentiment on the front [Dainty Delight] is stamped in Versamark Ink, White Emboss Powder added before heat setting with Heat Tool. It was added to the card with Dimensionals.
I decided to make a second card, but this time reducing the amount of Wild Wheat. I started by taking a Water Painter and some ink and applying it to some Fluid 100 Water Colour Paper. While it was still damp, I took my Boho Blue Blends Marker and flicking it using the lid of the pen, I added some splatters. I repeated this with the Moody Mauve Blends.
The Cheerful Daisies Bundle and Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper were my features for this card. I die cut the daisies in Basic White card. The centres are cut from the Water coloured paper as are the leaves. I also used the More Dazzle Specialty Paper to cut some extra leaves for sparkle!
The centre panel in the background, is Wild Wheat and I stamped the leaf image in 2nd generation stamping; meaning I inked the stamp, stamped on some paper before onto the card strip. A piece of the dotty design of the Vellum Basics Specialty pack was cut using the Nested Essentials dies and placed over the centre of the 3 strips. I’m not sure if you can see the 2 lines at the top and 2 at the bottom of the white layer? I added these for some extra interest using my scoring blade in my Trimmer.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next Wednesday for inspiration using a new core colour, Azure Afternoon.
