Today's card is actually a sneak peak for tomorrow's VC Rocks Blog Hop to kick off VC Rocks! What is VC Rocks? It is a yahoo group of demos & customers alike that celebrates the new Stampin' Up! catalog every year. The blog hop actually goes live on Monday at noon EST, so as a follower you get to view my card first.
So the theme of this months blog hop is "Fun With One Color" which will feature monochromatic designs using any number of inks/papers/embellishments in a single color scheme. White, Vanilla or Black are a neutral color you can use. WOW this was a bit difficult to narrow down a color! I wanted to use 1 color because I could pair it with another besides a neutral, but I re-read the instructions & had to switch to another color that was easier to use alone. So I chose the next best color- Lemon Lime Twist!
I started off with a Basic Black Card Stock base, followed by a layer of Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock that I had stamped with the Lemon Zest Stamp Set in the same color ink. Next, I took a scrap piece of Whisper White Card Stock & Basic Black Card Stock ran them through the Big Shot to die cut them using the Layering Squares Framelits with both the plain & the scallop square. I then sponged Lemon Lime Twist Ink onto the scrap white piece using the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. On another scrap of Whisper White Card Stock, I stamped the full lime/lemon using Lemon Lime Twist then did a bit more sponging on the limes to not have a lot of white show through. Using the Lemon Builder Punch, I punched out the limes first then took a scrap piece of Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock to punch out the leaves before sponging around the leaves with the ink. Before assembling the card I added the sentiment to the lime & background using the same set. Talking about using 1 set, 1 main color & 2 neutrals although not all required I think I did a pretty good job.
