Today's Class Challenge - Stampin' Up!- Stampin' Up! Australia

Today's challenge was to design a card using the - Stampin' Up! blossom builder punch (using the 'wing' as petals) and the 3/4" circle punch, as well as the apothecary framelits die and scalloped border to create a daisy card.

Alison, Katrina, Patricia and Katrena were able to choose their own colour combos and everyone made a card uniquely their own.

Apothecary Framelits Collection - Stampin' Up!

Picture
I used Stampin Write Markers and a Blender Pen to hand colour this card. The 3D effect is achieved by shading all around the image,including the banner, with Sahara Sand, which is one of the lightest Stampin Write Markers.
I first stamped the image onto Stampin' Up! whisper white card stock using early espresso ink, then picked up the colour with my blending pen directly from the markers (Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive). I finished off by shading in Sahara Sand, then ran it through the Big Shot using the Labels Collection Framelits die.
Next I cut a larger piece of Old Olive Card stock and 2 larger pieces of Rich Razzleberry Card stock (one for the card back, which I scored using my scoring tool near the top of the back piece to make a "hinge" so the card would open) using the Big Shot. I used dimensionals to pop up the focal image and added some pearls.

Masculine Birthday Card - Stampin' Up!

Picture

I made this card for my friend Rob's 60th birthday. He owns a red FJ holden just like the one on the card.
I didn't have a photo of his car, so I googled "red FJ holden" and found this image, which I printed out on photo paper, cropped it by cutting round the outline, then popped it up using dimensionals.
The card was matted onto Stampin' Up! whisper white card stock, using a real red and basic black frame made with the Framelits Labels Collection Die. I added the numbers (from my stash...they are thin plywood, painted with acrylic paint in white) .I popped up the red base with dimensionals The stamps used are from the Apothecary Art stamp set, which I love, and the For Everything stamp set.
