Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers.  Wow, has this week gone by fast or what?!?!  I love having the holiday, but am having difficulty cramming 5 days worth of work into 4 days!  Anyone else have that issue this week?  But, I digress… You are here to see today’s post.  It’s only fitting that I’m doing a belated birthday card.  LOL Today I have a color challenge for you.  Global Stamping Friends were asked to make a project using Call Me Clover.  The only other colors we could use were Whisper White or Basic Black.  It was a challenge all right!  LOL  But, I am pretty happy with the end result.

I actually ended up making two cards.  The are both pretty similar.  One is just a “stepped up” version.  You can choose to make the simple card or the stepped up version.  The card base started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.  I then cut off 2 3/4″ off the long side.  Save this piece, you will need it for the front.  Next, I cut some Call Me Clover DSP 2 1/2″ x 4″ and a strip 1/2″ x 4″.  The larger of these was adhered to the front of the card and the 1/2″ strip was adhered to a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS for the inside of the card.

For the basic card, I used the 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece I had cut off and turned it 90 degrees.  This piece was adhered it to the card front using snail adhesive.  I only put adhesive on the half of this layer that would be touching the front of the card on the left. The sentiments were stamped onto a 2 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS in Call Me Clover ink. It was then adhered to the Call Me Clover layer with snail adhesive.

On the interior of the card I stamped ” forgive me? ” in Call Me Clover ink.

For the “stepped up” version. I took the piece 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ I had cut off an adhered it a piece of Whisper White CS that is 2 7/8″ x 4 5/8″.  The word “sorry” was stamped onto a 3 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White CS using my Stamparatus.  I then (without moving the CS or stamp, I cleaned the stamp and inked it with Versamark ink and stamped again. then, using clear embossing powder I heat embossed the word “sorry”. I cut a strip of Whisper White CS 3 1/2″ x  3/4″ and stamped the sentiment in Call Me Clover ink.  The ends of the strip were flagged the end using the Banner Triple Punch and I sponged the edges with Call Me Clover ink using a sponge dauber.   I attached the strip to the front of the card with stampin’ dimensionals.

Stampin’ Tip: Using the Stamparatus allowed me to stamp the word “sorry” in EXACTLY the same spot twice.  This allowed me to stamp the Versamark over the Call Me Clover ink.  Using the clear embossing powder made the word appear to be heat embossed in Call Me Clover.  This is a great technique for making heat embossing look like any one of our colors and the Stamparatus made it super easy!

The inside of the card was stamped with ” forgive me? ” in Call Me Clover ink.  I hope you like today’s monochrome card.  If you don’t already have a demonstrator and wish to purchase any of the products used in the making of this card, I have listed all products used below.  Each one has a link to my store making them easy to purchase.
