Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – A Trio of Purples

At last week’s Card & Cuppa class, I based the project on this one, but used a trio of purples instead.

I used Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape, plus Purple Posy in place of Whisper White/Vanilla.

For the background stamping, an image from the Gallery Grunge Stamp Set provided the detail. As with the other project, a Sponge Dauber was used to gently highlight the stamping.

On a separate sheet, pools of Highland Heather ink were created using a Sponge Dauber, with centres added using the SAB Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set. Once punched out with the Small Bloom Punch, these create the pretty ombre effect flowers.

For this project, I’ve used two different ribbons, the fabulous co-ordinating In Color Scallop Ribbon, and the Whisper White Seam Binding. Once again I’ve coloured the white ribbon with a Stampin’ Blend – I can’t seem to stop myself!

The card is shaped in a ‘D’ using the Detailed Trio Punch to round two corners on each layer, including the base card.

A sentiment from the Botanical Bliss Stamp Set makes this a card suitable for any occasion. Rhinestones in the centre of the flowers add a finishing touch of bling.

Don’t forget that there are only a few weeks left to get your hands on the SAB items. SAB finishes on 31st March.

Happy crafting
