Hello friends!! Happy Friday (if it is still Friday in your part of the world!)! Have a card I made for the current Cloud9 Blog Hop. The Cloud9 Blog Hop was set up to celebrate WPlus9Design stamps and since I have a few sets (as in exactly four!)I have wanted to play along. This month's inspiration photo is just beautiful and presented some problems for me when it came to putting together a card. None of the sets I own have any kind of large star shapes in them, but the Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions set has these leaf images that are kinda star-like (yep... I'm stretchin' it, hee!). The layout is based on Chupa's current Sketchbook Saturday sketch.
The color scheme I pulled from the photo is cream, black, kraft and silver. I stamped the large leaf image on kraft cardstock using cream ink and then stamped a second image, trimmed it out and adhered it over the top of the first image. I then added some silver rhinestones to each leaf. A strip of silver cardstock was punched and adhered to the kraft piece and then the piece was wrapped with black ribbon. To bring in the musical aspect of the aspect of the photo I adhered some Tim Holtz music tissue tape to cream cardstock and die cut it with a MFT Fishtail Flag Stax die. The sentiment (from Hero Arts) was stamped with black ink and then die cut with the same fishtail flag die. A small leaf was stamped with VersaMark ink, silver embossing powder was applied, heat set, trimmed out and a rhinestone applied. The banners were adhered together along with the silver leaf and adhered to the piece. Then the entire piece was adhered to a cream card base.
Thanks for stopping by...
