Alphabet Challenge has a new theme starting today – “N is for No Layers.” Did you know that I like layers – lots of them?? Boy, this theme was SO hard for me, but the Delicate Dahlias stamp set made it super easy. Because no layer cards are not my thing, I made an additional card with just a few changes to enhance the pretty stamp set. So, how’d I do and which card do you like best? Let me know in a comment!
Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Alphabet Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before October 21!
My secrets to making this project
- Card #1: Card base is 11″ x 4-1/4″ and scored at 5-1/2.”
- Card #2: Card base is 6″ x 9″ and scored at 4-1/2.”
Now, the FUN Part!
- Firstly, both cards were made essentially the same way except I stamped Card #1’s dahlia outline with Poppy Parade ink and Card #2’s with Cajun Craze ink. Then, I stamped both with Pale Papaya ink with the coordinating stamp.
- After that, I stamped the leaves with Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen inks.
- Then, I stamped the sentiments and added some bling to the centers of the flowers, which completed Card #1.
- For Card #2, I added a layer of Evening Evergreen cardstock, colored the background with a light gray alcohol marker (Copics C1) and added the little ink spots from the Artistically Inked stamp set.
I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
- Crafty Sentiments Challenge
- Crafty Creations Challenges
- Creative Knockouts Challenge
- Lemon Shortbread Challenge
- Through The Craft Room Door Challenge
