Hugs

Hello again.  Just popping in to share a card with you that I made based on the middle colour combo.

I have always loved grey and yellow together, they just like salt and pepper- the perfect match.  So here is my take on.

For the background, I stamped these triangles stamp (My Favorite Things) repeatedly on a piece of fog cardstock from Simon Says Stamp, using Altenew grey inks (in the shades of Lava rock, Moon rock and Evening gray) for an ombre look.

Then I cut a piece of thick vellum to be just slightly longer than the cardstock, and foled the top over and adhered the top from the back.  I stamped some peonies from Altenew  Peony Scrolls on the vellum with embossing ink and Hero Arts white embossing powder, then heat set it.  I coloured the peonies with my Prismacolor pencils in two yellow shades.

I also white embossed my sentiment HUGS (Wplus9 – That is all set), and currently this sentiment stamp set is my favourite, I use it on most of my cards, I just love the hand painted bold font.

I added some sequins in the end, and adhered the front panel on to a cardbase.  That finished the card.

A question for you, how much stuff/how many tools do you use to make a card usually?  Well, these are the stuff I used to make this card (cardstock and vellum aren’t included):

I often laugh about myself and my obsession for craft supplies – why spent £2.50 to buy a card from a shop when you can use your £100 crafting tool to make one?!

Anyway, hope you like this card, see you soon on blogland.

Ta.

    What a fantastic, contemporary and super stylish card! I absolutely love the geometric background, and softening it with a vellum overlay looks brilliant. The florals are gorgeous… I love a bit of Altenew. You did make me laugh about the £100 crafting tools! I know exactly what you mean! Thanks so much for playing along with us again at Seven Hills Crafts 🙂
