YouTube REPLAY Live Crafting with Liz – Color & Contour Bundle. The idea behind these cards was to find a use for those annoying little pieces of Designer Series Paper that seem to end up in the bottom of the pack of paper (at least they do for me). I chose to use the Pattern Party Host Reward Designer Series Paper, but this would work for any, simply change the colours you pair the paper with.
I selected Pale Papaya and Pool Party as my main colours, with just a hint of Granny Apple Green. The flower stem is stamped in Tuxedo Black and then die cut before being colouring with Pale Papaya and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends. The plan had always been to layer this onto one of the scallop die cuts included in the Die pack. For me, there wasn’t enough contrast between that and the stem, so I stamped the rectangle with Pool Party, using the the splatter stamp.
A few strips of pattern paper stuck across the rectangle and then everything layered onto the Card front and the card really did come together so quickly. For a final touch, I added some stamping to the inside of the card.
My second card uses the same bundle, but I think looks and feels quite different. Partly because of the change in colour away from the subtle feel of Pale Papaya and Pool Party, to Flirty Flamingo. The feel is also changed because the first stamped image was soft, with rounded edges, and the second is must more angular. I changed where I put the Dimensionals, moving them from under the rectangle die cut, to underneath the flowers.
Did you spot that I also extended the pieces of patterned paper to the very edge of the card and had them running under the rectangle? If you want to do this, but your scraps are too small to run all the way across, you can always cheat the length by cutting them and leaving a gap under the rectangle.
I would love to know which card is your favourite. Why not let me know by leaving a comment here or on my YouTube Video?
