Check out the sketch:
I took a bit of liberty in tilting my square panel and layering the long flagged piece to the back but I think you can totally see the sketch in my card. What do you think?
I've been thinking about doing this spotlight technique for a while and just had to order the Blended Bloom stamp to try it out. This sketch was the perfect chance to pull it all together into a card.
I stamped and cut out the large flower and then stamped it again and used the Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities to color in just one section before punching it out with the 1 1/4" circle punch. Before adhering the colored part to the flower with dimensionals I backed it with a Basic Black 1 3/8" punched circle.
The whole flower is popped with dimesionals onto a polaroid style frame in Basic Black. The frame is made by using the square Framelits to cut the center of the panel out leaving room for the sentiment to be embossed in white at the bottom.
Using a sponge and the Smoky Slate ink pad I colored a strip of the striped Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP (FREE! during Sale-a-Bration!!) to make my flagged piece. I love how you can add any color you want and wipe off the excess to leave the pre-embossed patterns to shine! To add a bit more definition to the banner I added small Basic Black punched banners to the ends.
The rhinestones bring a bit of the Pumpkin Pie color to the rest of the card. Coloring your rhinestones is super easy with the Blendabilities. I love coloring the rhinestones for a perfect match to my Stampin' Up! inks! Makes my crafting OCD self so happy!
The colors for my card are inspired by the Stampin' Royalty challenge as I just loved the orange, gray, black combo.
I hope you'll pop over to Fab Friday and see what awesomeness the rest of the Design Team has in store for you. I always get new ideas from them and also think, "Duh, why didn't I think to do it that way!"
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
