Hi everyone, welcome to our Creative Prompt for August 2021. I’d love for you to play along with me.
How to join in…
I’ve created a thread on my Stampers Workshop Facebook page (it is pinned to the top of the page so you can always find it). I’d like to invite anyone who wants to share their take on the challenge to do so in the comments section of that post. You don’t need your own blog, just upload a photograph of your card directly into the comments. Please upload photographs only. Do not link to other blogs or websites. Regrettably, these will be removed. My hope is these Creative Prompts will inspire and challenge us all to create. I also hope that by sharing we can comment, support and encourage each other. I do hope you’ll join me.
Here’s the Creative Prompt…
The first thing I thought about this sketch was that it would be an awesome way to highlight some of the gorgeous Stampin’ Up!® Designer Series Paper (selected designs are still on Sale for one more day!). I chose to use papers from the Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper. I love the gorgeous colours in this set and the gold foiling really adds that extra bit of wow! It then made it a really easy decision to use the coordinating Artisically Inked stamp set for the sentiment. I stamped it in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder so that it coordinated with the papers I had chosen.
The next bit was a little bit of a harder for me to make a decision as to what to do. I could have gone with an actual circle like on the sketch and layered something on it. I also thought about replacing the circe with a couple of the floral images from the Artistically Inked stamp set. In the end I went with that gorgeous floral die from the coordinating Artistic die set. I added Foam Adhesive to the Basic White cardstock before I die cut the image so that it would have that extra dimension.
Now you could add some rhinestones, gems or even ribbon to finish off the card but I decided that since it was quite busy already to leave those off this time.
Here’s the card…
