This weekend is a big one in my family – my birthday, my dad’s and my mom’s. So, I had to come with something awesome for my dad’s birthday card (my moms is to come). I constantly have little colour piles on my desk of combinations that I want to try and this was one of them: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke and Tangerine Tango.
For my starting point, I decided to use the Sketch Challenge on SCS this week and boy, was it a doozy!
I started with a Chocolate Chip card base and then layered it with textured Kiwi Kiss cardstock. All the layers on this card are also sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.
Then, following the sketch, I added a vertical panel of Always Artichoke on which I stamped the swirl from the retired Bronc Buster stamp set.
Next, I added the large square of Tangerine Tango to the right with a triangle of Chocolate Chip designer paper. I rolled in a couple of the corners for dimension and sponged all the edges.
For the centre piece, I stamped the image from Bronc Buster in Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then added two Antique Brass jumbo eyelets with my Crop-A-Dile and layered it on some Chocolate Chip cardstock with a band of Kiwi Kiss underneath. I stamped the star from Wanted and punched it out with the small star punch, added an Antique Brass brad and adhered to the card. This layer was attached with dimensionals.
Lastly, I stamped the little star and horseshoe from Bronc Buster in Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed it. I then used my Versamarker to colour in the star to give it a little accent.
I like this combo very much for masculine cards – I’ll have to remember this one!
