CC97: cocoa plums

The color challenge today was inspired by Stampin Up!’s enchante papers. I had them lying on my stamp table and my new SAB set was there…..and they just went together! So check out the challenge thread here!

My first card was this one…it was made to fit into SU’s small open end envelopes. It measures 3.25×6.5. I used a pale plum cardstock as the base. (It would be cut 6.5×6.5 and then folded). I cut a strip of the enchante papers and then a strip of close to cocoa slightly wider. I left one side of the cocoa a little wider than the other and used my paper piercing tool to pierce a line down that edge.

For the main image, I inked up the stamp with my pale plum and sage shadow markers. Then I held it at arm’s length and spritzed it with stampin mist. I stamped it on the cardstock then to give it a bit of a watered appearance. Then I stamped the words across the stems. I used a sponge with pale plum to sponge the edges and the Heidi Swapp distressor to distress the white. I layered it on close to cocoa and put it on dimensionals. Tied the narrow organdy and assembled it.

My second was a quick pocket note. I punched a scalloped oval out of enchante papers and then mounted that on SU’s cutie pocket notes. (These are available in the current mini catalog and come with matching envies.) Then I stamped the image on vanilla cardstock and punched it out with the mega oval punch. I stamped the greeting, then layered it onto the scalloped oval. I tied some reinker dyed sage grosgrain ribbon along the bottom and secured it with glue dots. Quick and Easy!

That’s all for today! I have a shaker card in mind….maybe I’ll get some time today to do that! Thank you for the tutorial suggestions, please post one so you can with the post-it note holder!
