Friendship Vibe with Stampin' Up!

Wednesday, November 16, 2022

After a weekend of travel and then two days of being sick in bed... I'm finally back in the craft room and of course I had to make my weekly Craft Roulette project! This week, the parameters were to have a window card; colors of red, yellow + 1; 3 circles; and November.

The parameter that threw me for a loop was November - what does that even mean? 😅 So I decided to use this stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Better Days and used colors that inspired me for the month of November here in the US. Maybe not so much in Southern California... but I've seen trees turn beautiful colors in November in Boston!

I started with stamping the outline of the image on some cream colored cardstock with brown ink. I stamped each part of the solid stamps with red, orange and yellow inks and then fussy cut around the image. On an A2 piece of the same colored cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with copper. I used Distress Oxides to create the same color order in reverse and wiped the ink off gently over the sentiment. Next, I splattered some water and bronze metallic ink onto the background, popped up my window scene and added some glitter Pops of Color. 

So I have a window with the stamped image on the front of the card with colors of red, orange and yellow which are also the colors of November. I also have three circles the line design from the stamp around the window/image. How do you think I did? Did you also play along this week?
