A Challenge And A Metal Embossed Corners Tutorial


The Design Team is having a challenge using Robin Egg Blue, Butter Yellow, and Spring Green in a card. I'm beginning to think I might need a new camera. I am having a really hard time getting true colors from it. The green is brighter and so is the Yellow IRL. Also the sponged area around the edge of the circle really is yellow.

The image is Pansy Vase by Alesa Baker. It was stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth cardstock and painted with Twinkling H2O's. The rim and the base of the vase was gold leafed. The image was put through the Cuttlebug using the largest Spellbinder Large Circle die. It was also embossed and I used the die as a stencil to sponge the edges with Stamping Up Barely Banana. Glossy Accents was applied to the vase.

The circle outside the white one is Neenah Classic Laid Silverstone. It has a rough tooth texture to it. The leaves punch is by EK Success.

The background is Classic Laid Solar White mounted on Silverstone. The image was mounted on the Classic laid Solar White using 3D Pop Ups. The corners were done as described on the Impression-Obsession site HERE. They were mounted using tape on the back of them. The 5mm pearls are Mark Richards and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

SUPPLIES:

- Stamp: F6010, Pansy Vase
- Paper: Neenah Classic
Crest Solar White Super Smooth and Neenah Classic Laid Solar White and Silverstone; Vellum
- Ink: Brilliance Galaxy Gold, Twinkling H2O's, and Stampin' Up Barely Banana
- Accessories: Gold Foil, Mark Richards 5mm Pearls, Hobby Lobby ribbon, EK Success Leaves Punch, Glossy Accents, Cuttlebug Formal Squares
