The challenge this week for my Up Late and Stamping friends was to make a card using White, Pomegranate and Soft Sky colors. These are some fantastic colors so feel free to play along and if you do, upload your creations in to the ULAS gallery located HERE. The card is also based on Lauren ~ AKA: Mytime's, weekend sketch. Be sure to check her card out as it is so awesome! Anyway, my card base is Cryogen White shimmer cardstock from Cutcardstock.com.
The sentiment is from Flourishes ~ Flourished Christmas and was stamped using Pomegranate ink. I added a Swarovski Crystal on top of the I. These are the same crystals I used on the ornament as well as the 3 down the left side and the 3 in the bottom right corner. The bottom layer of Soft Sky diamond paper is from the SU! and is the designer series paper pack. I matted this on Soft Sky cardstock. The next Pomegranate layer is from the Holiday Harmony pack and is matted on Pomegranate cardstock. The ribbon is the Pomegranate ribbon from the current holiday mini catalog.
To do the ornament (Inkadinkado) I first embossed using my Versamark and Silver embossing powder on Cryogen White cardstock. I then cut it out, colored it using a blender pen and Soft Sky & Pomegranate ink pads and then mounted it using dimensionals on a piece of Cryogen White cardstock. I made a hole using my paper piercer right under the top bow and then strung silver cord through and then used Scotch tape to adhere it on the back. I then mounted this on top of Soft Sky cardstock.
Be sure to check out my friends galleries & blogs to see their fantastic creations ~
They may not have them uploaded yet but I am sure there are many other things they have that will inspire you!
Thanks for looking!
