Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 34

June 13, 2010

Happy Sunday, my friends!!  It is a bright day today, full of sunshine and blue skies!  So- I am a happy girl!  Of course, Sunday also means it is time for another Curtain Call Color Challenge courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage blog!  Here are the colors for the week!
There is also a Father's Day theme for this color challenge...which we don't do all to often.  But, I think it worked well for these colors.  I also used Taylored Expression sketch 117 for my was perfect for what I wanted to do with this card!  Here is what I came up with:
 "Happy Father's Day" Supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Basic Grey, American Crafts & Little Yellow Bicycle
Stamps: Renaissance by Design (Roots & Wings, Roots & Wings Add-on, and Sentimental Sayings)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: amber, merlot, dune & Chalk: tangerine, charcoal) 
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Border Punch: Fiskars

Instructions:   Fold maroon cardstock in half to make card base.  Ink the edges of an orange dot paper block, and adhere to the front.  Punch a border to the bottom of a gray paper block, and ink the edges.  Stamp the tree and quote to a white cardstock block. Punch a border to a maroon dot paper strip, and adhere to the upper right side of the stamped block.  Adhere the entire piece to the gray block.  Make a banner from a maroon cardstock strip.  Stamp the sentiment to a white cardstock strip and add to the banner.  Adhere the entire banner to the middle of the stamped block.  Attach the entire block to the front of the card using dimensional adhesive, and accent the bottom with jewels.
