Good morning! I am so excited to be a stop on the hop celebrating the innovative August release from Waffle Flower Stamps! Today I’m sharing a card using the pretty Bouquet Builder 5 stamp set and showing how I’m going to start using the Color Combos and Color Swatch stamps and dies to create inspirational “moodboards”!
To start I stamp the Bouquet Builder 5 using a light no-line coloring ink with my MISTI. Then I leave the stamp on my MISTI and color it with copic markers. I have been trying to branch out into new color combinations so I used several Bs and BVs with my favorite E combo! Then I placed the panel back inside my MISTI, re-stamped it with versamark, and heat-embossed it with gold tinsel embossing powder.
Next I stamped a sentiment from Label Greetings onto light purple cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold tinsel embossing powder. I adhered it to the panel with foam mounting tape and finished the card with a few light purple sparkly gems! As I was working I’ll admit that I was REALLY not thinking that this color combination was going to work…and I was really apprehensive about adding the gold embossing powder. But once I was finished I was really happy with how it turned out. And I also realized that there’s a good chance I’d never remember this combination without some sort of visual record! 😉 Thank goodness for Waffle Flower!
I decided to use the new Combo Swatch and Color Combo stamps and dies to create a moodboard featuring the colors I used. I’ll add it to a binder ring and as I discover new combinations I can add them to the ring to give me a great resource for inspiration in the future.
I stamped the Color Combo stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and colored it with my three copic combinations: E70, E71, E74, E77, E79; B21, B23, B24, B26, B37, B39; and BV01, BV02, BV13, BV04, and BV08. Then I placed the panel back in my MISTI, stamped the outline with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold tinsel embossing powder. I die-cut it with the coordinating Color Combo die. Then I stamped the Combo Swatch with intense black ink onto white cardstock and die-cut it with the coordinating Combo Swatch tag die. I adhered the Color Combo square onto the tag and die-cut the tag topper with the light purple cardstock I used on my card. Normally I’d handwrite my info on the tag but my handwriting is awful so I decided to type it instead so it’d be easier for you to read! 😉 I’m excited about creating more of these moodboard tags to use in the future!
And that’s it! I hope you like my card and this gives you another idea for how to use these great Color Combo and Color Swatch stamps and dies!
