Artistic Colorblock - Stampin' Up! Uniquely Artistic

   I'm popping back in to share a card I just made using the newest CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.  I needed a bit of a mental health break this afternoon and the stamp room gave me the creative outlet to just take a few minutes to reset. 

  The colors for the challenge are gorgeous together and I immediately knew I wanted to pair some gold with them for a crisp, clean looking card.


     I'm starting with a Basic White thick card base.  To make the color blocks I cut 3 same sized pieces of cardstock in my 3 colors and using the Stamparatus and versamark ink I stamped the leaf image on all three.  Then I embossed with gold embossing powder and cut each panel in 3 equal parts so I have the color blocks to create 3 cards from the pieces.

  I adhered the 3 blocks to a piece of Basic White the same size as the original 3 pieces of cardstock. I lined up the image so it looks seamless across the 3 panels and then trimmed off any wonky or uneven edges.  It is then adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

  The sentiment from Here Together is stamped in Soft Suede and cut with the Stylish Shapes dies and popped up over a Gold (& Rose Gold) Specialty paper banner.  I added a few retired Artistry in Bloom sequins for a little bit of extra detail.

  If you missed my earlier post today about my Free Gift for online orders check it out HERE and don't miss out!  I'll only be offering this special until May 31! 

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
