It's that time of the week again for another Just Add Ink challenge and this one was a nice bright and cheery one! Atleast I thought so, it is a colour combo...
These colours just called out 'children's birthday card' to me and so that is what I created. It also gave me the opportunity to play with some of my new SU! products from the current Summer Mini Catalogue - Builder Wheels and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
Stamps: Birthday and So Many Stars (new: Builder Wheels)
Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray
Cardstock/Paper: Basic Gray, Tempting Turquoise, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, YoYo Yellow (I didn't have any Daffodil Delight cardstock, not even one scrap!)
Accessories: Stampin' Around Jumbo Handle and Builder Wheel Spindle/Spacer, Textured Impressions Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Star Extra-Large Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Paper Piercer, Snail Adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals
I don't usually put things inside my card, I leave that for the giver of the card, however as I had made my card base from Basic Gray cardstock I thought I would put some cardstock inside for ease of writing on. To let you in on a little secret, on my first attempt at the roller wheel I decided to go free-hand and just rolled my image across the Whisper White cardstock but of course I went crooked. Therefore, I got out my trusty Stampin' Around Wheel Guide and on my second go I was straight! So as not to waste my previous efforts this is the piece that I cut out for the inside of my card - but I simply used the straight section, before I went skewiff!
I hope you enjoyed seeing what I made for this colour combo and some insight into the making of it. Now pop on over to the Just Add Ink blog and see what other stunning creations the other DT members have come up with and then have some fun and join in too!
