Two Cards in Blue and Yellow

It seems that a lot of stamp companies are celebrating an anniversary at the moment. Made these cards for two of them. Didn't make them on the same day but the color combo really makes me happy and it fit so well for the theme of the second card so I used it again. The blue inks are from Altenew.



Stamps: Winnie & Walter (sentiment, sun), Hero Arts (background)

Was planning to use some Washi tape down the side but in my large collection of Washi tapes I couldn't find one that worked!!!



Stamps: Papertrey Ink (stripes from the Ombre Builders and swirl from the Scribble Circles), Hero Arts (sentiment)
Die: Gina Marie (stitched rectangle)

The stripes would stamp smoothly no matter how often I inked them. Don't know if it is the stamp, the inks or the paper. Decided to call it distressed look and use them anyway.

Challenges:

Winnie & Walter Shay's 4th Birthday Bash Challenge

Winnie & Walter Crystals Birthday Bash Challenge




Papertrey Inks 11th Anniversary Stripes Challenge





CAS(E) this Sketch #259





Hope your weekend was fun and that you could squeeze some crafty time in! I really appreciate your visit!

Be well and keep in touch!

Love both cards, Susanne--wonderful color combo! Have an idea for the 4 challenge--just need to actually do it. Love the 4 words done in 4 shades & so glad someone else has lots of Washi but none that works when you need it--haha! Wonderful design for the stripes card & distressed is perfect! Would you believe an area of one of my wc stripes didn't want to stamp correctly--had to change inks & add the MISTI mat under my paper, but at least it came out OK finally!

Eine Farbkombi die ich so noch nie benutzt habe ... warum eigentlich? Schaut total super aus!! Beide Karten sind Dir super gelungen und bei der Zweiten passt 'Distressed Look' perfekt!!

Great designs Susanne! And the colour combo makes me happy too! One little trick I have found helps with some stamps that won't 'play' nicely, is to ink the stamp with Versamark first and then ink on top of that with the dye ink (that way, you can also heat emboss too, if you wish, as it acts more like a pigment ink then). Have a great week! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx

Those blues and bright yellow make for such a happy combination! Fantastic stamping on both cards, Susanne! I rub a nail file gently across solid stamps like that and it really seems to help.

I think blue & yellow with white is a happy color combo too. Love the bold graphic looks on these cards.The stamping in #2 looks good to me, and the washi tape does as well! TFS & have a great week.

Both cards are bright and cheerful, Susanne! I love that you showed a strip of boho pattern on the side! It’s sometimes difficult for me to get a good impression when I use new solid stamps, too. Tips I know are already written above. :-) Hideko xx

Liebe Susanne… die Farbkombination hat schon ein bisschen was royales, sehr sehr schön!
Auch das das „happy“ immer schwächer in der Farbe wird finde ich total klasse. Im ersten Moment dachte ich, du hättest es selber geschrieben, weil ein Füller daneben liegt ;)
Zutrauen würde ich es dir…
Ganz lieben Gruß
Katrin

That's such a gorgeous colour combo, Susanne ... and both cards are deliciously fresh and fabulous! I like the stripes as they are ... they're kind of texture-y ... brilliant with the gold embossing! I've had the same experience with that PTI set ... I tried using Versamark then straight into die ink (without stamping off) and it worked a treat (a tip from Jennifer McGuire I think!). Hugs, Anita :)

Oh I am loving the colors that you used. Blue is my favorite!! LOVE the fun design of the first card with the sun detail and the second card is very cool with the way you used the ombre builder. GREAT design!!
