  Hi, Stampers -     Just a quick post with the Art Gallery Bundle.  The background layer is just simply distress ink, brayered on a Gel Press, then splashed with a little water and Prussian Blue Brusho (very little Brusho), using a fan brush, and then lifting a print.  I die-cut the layer with the largest of the Stitched Rectangles dies.  Flowers and leaves were stamped onto Shimmery White CS.  SU! supplies are below. Happy Stampin’! Sue Duffy ~

ART GALLERY - 2021 Pantone Colors

  Hello, Stampers!     Today's card utilizes what are allegedly the top Pantone colors for 2021 - yellow and gray - which I am very fond of, actually.      I stamped the background on this card with Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight, using an Altenew stamp set called Halftone Circles.  The Art Gallery flowers are Daffodil Delight, with the 2nd step in So saffron and Wink of Stella added over the 2nd step areas only.  I used a Basic Gray marker for the stems and leaf (I think I should have stuck with Smoky Slate).  I would suggest using Shimmery White for your flowers.  I didn't, and I'm a little disappointed.   The circle is cut with the largest of the Stitched Shapes dies.  The sentiment and scalloped sentiment die are part of the Art Gallery Bundle.  I added a few Basic Pearls and a Basic Gray mat.

  Hello, Stampers!     This card was created with the Art Gallery Bundle and Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, the first items I purchased from the Stampin' Up! January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.  They are featured as part of the Fine Art Floral Suite (pp.32-33.)  Two things inspired my purchase:  to me, the flowers look like peonies, which I love, and I also love images that look hand-painted.  I also liked the bold sentiment die, which comes out in three pieces, so it's easy to use just one or all of them.  Below are the products I used.  The Painted Texture embossed layer is 5-1/4 x 4, the same color as the Pool Party base and added with just 4 glue dots so that it is just slightly raised.
