June 2013 In Color Club Card Sample

Hi Stampers!

Today I'd like to share with you the card sample I made for my June In Color club members.  Every month when I bundle up the In Color packets, I love including a little card as my thank you to those who participated for the month.  It's also a fantastic way to showcase that month's color!  

The color for June was Baked Brown Sugar!  This is a great neutral color.  I think it falls somewhere between Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  Combine all three of those colors and you have a fantastic monochrome color palette for a masculine card.  Anyway, I'm getting off topic here!  

For this sample, I used the triple time stamping technique in a different way.  I made a banner shape rather than just a rectangle.  The Swallowtail stamp is such a nice image to use for this technique.  I layered the image with some Very Vanilla card stock.  I sponged the edges and made some custom embellishments with the new clay and molds from Stampin' Up!

I made some cards with two flowers and some cards with just the one largest flower.  I think both look really pretty!

Stampin' Supplies:
Card Stock: Whisper White notecards, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar
Stamps: Swallowtail
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar Stampin' Pad and Refill
Other: Simply Pressed Clay, Simply Pressed Molds, Sponge Dauber

Stampin' Tip: If you find that your adhesive of choice is not working for the clay flowers, try just a little dab of Crystal Effects!  Make sure you allow it time to dry.
