Oh Hello Friend

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe bundle with Coffee Cups framelits and Oh So Eclectic - watercolor wash - ice cream handmade card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This is my card for the Creative Crew’s color challenge this month at Splitcoaststampers. Our theme this month is vacation/staycation, and that means… summer, which I only tolerate for the peaches. So I am saying, “Oh Hello Friend” to this tasty ice cream.

This is my last month on the Creative Crew. I am honored to have been asked, and it has challenged me creatively for sure.

The colors are greens and brown and a light pink. I decided to simplify the color palette and chose Chocolate Chip, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Powder Pink.

I started with a Lemon-Lime Twist watercolor wash on Shimmery White cardstock. When the Lemon-Lime Twist was mostly dry, I filled in a little around the edges of the wash with Powder Pink. The ice cream and cup are from the Coffee Cafe bundle. I stamped the cup with the floral bouquet from Wood Words.

I finished the card off with Iridescent Sequins and Silver Mini Sequin Trim.

Oh So Glossy

Stampin' Up! Oh So Eclectic bundle, Naturally Eclectic designer series paper, Eclectic Layers Thinlits, Striped Wipe technique with glossy cardstock - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts
Hello, and welcome! This is my entry for Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights, and you can VOTE for my card here (I am #22). I would love to have your vote! The theme this month is Gratitude Inspired by Thailand. (It’s not an odd theme if you know that Kylie is very grateful to be on the Stampin’ Up! incentive trip in Thailand right now.) I looked through lots of pictures of Thailand and took inspiration from the colors that seem to be in every picture. Blues and greens, plus gorgeous, vibrant flowers.

Yesterday I showed you my Display Stamper card that used the Striped Wipe technique. So I made this one during my Facebook Live video yesterday to show you how to do it. I love this technique! The live video is embedded below, so watch there to see how to do this technique.

After I made the striped focal point using the Thailand-inspired colors, I embossed these leaves using the Eclectic Layers thinlits. There are a couple of dies in this set that emboss instead of cutting, and I love them! This set of dies is incredibly versatile.

Stampin' Up! Oh So Eclectic stamps with Basics Pack 1 Washi Tape - finish the inside of your handmade card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

On the video, I didn’t show the inside of the card, so here it is. I stamped the Berry Burst flower twice on Whisper White cardstock and then added a strip of washi tape from Basics Pack 1 to the bottom. Check out my video to see the fun Striped Wipe technique for glossy cardstock. And please go VOTE for my card so I can be part of the international blog hop next month!

All the products I used in my card and video are listed below, with links to my online store.
