I have a very “Light” card for you today. The colors are soft, yet bright, and the focal point is similar to a stained glass window. I have become a great fan of the Painted Glass stamp set. And it just screams for you to use the Stampin’ Blends for the coloring.
I love the more subtle shades on the “stained glass”. Last card I made with this set I went with the more Regal tones. You can see that card HERE. For that card I used the Graceful Glass 6X6 Vellum DSP.
On today’s card, I stamped the image using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it with the Stampin’ Blends in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie. I used both shades of each color. I spent some time debating on color the section that I left white. Finally I decided it worked best white to lighten up the look. I then used the 2″ Circle Punch to punch out the round window. I think it gives it a totally different look.
I carefully chose a sentiment that easily fit in the upper corner of the Whisper White layer. I did not want the DSP to fold back too far. This Happy Birthday has been a “Go To” sentiment for me. It is from the Southern Serenade stamp set. I love the font of the greeting.
The Pearlized Doily was a perfect fit, and an unexpected background for the stained glass. I was very pleased with the outcome of my color matching today. I would not have considered pairing Grapefruit Grove with Pumpkin Pie. Now I am sold that it is a good pairing.
Probably my favorite part of this card is the Designer Series Paper. I am a great fan of Stampin’ Up!’s DSP. I believe most companies no long do Double-sided DSP. I am SO HAPPY that Stampin’ Up! does because cards like today must have the coordinating and double-sided DSP.
