Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge June 2017

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you.  The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

Our challenge this month was set by Hannah McCurley of Stampin by Hannah. For a change Hannah decided to give us a colour challenge, using these colours:

I decided to use the smoky slate as my card base and front layer and to use the other three colours for my sentiment. Firstly I ran the front layer through the new Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Then I cut narrow strips of Fresh Fig, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral and adhered them to a piece of the new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets at an angle and then used the new 'Happy Birthday' die to cut out my sentiment. It was then so easy to stick the sentiment on the front of the card.

Smoky Slate, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Fresh Fig

 I'm not sure the sentiment stands out enough but surprisingly I do like all these colours together, they are certainly not four colour I would have put together!

 I absolutely love the texture you get from this embossing folder, I've zoomed in on the front of the card so you can see the texture, isn't it amazing?
