Let It Ride | Aussies Who Love Stampin' Up! Challenge #031

Hi and thanks for visiting :)

Today marks the start of our latest fortnightly challenge over on the Aussies Who Love Stampin' Up! Facebook Group.

Our latest challenge #AWLSU031 is a CASE the Catty challenge.

Take any inspiration you like from the below project (if you'd like to see this project in the catalogue, you'll find it on page 127 in the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue)

Myself and the other group admins will share our creations to start off each challenge and hopefully help kick-start and inspire your creativity.

If you live in Australia and are interested in participating in our fortnightly challenges, click here to join the group :)

The colour inspiration for my card comes from the latest Sunday Stamps #205 Colour Challenge.

My colour palette is made up of Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze & Very Vanilla.

I started by running my Soft Suede card base through my Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing folder.

Next I stamped the horse image, from the Let It Ride stamp set, in Early Espresso ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock. I then coloured the horse using my Dark & Light Soft Suede Stampin' Blends.

The strip of Cajun Craze striped DSP comes from the retiring Nature's Poem pack and was layered under my stamped Very Vanilla layer.

To finish off, I stamped the sentiment (also from the Let It Ride stamp set) in Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla and cut it out using the new Stitched Nested Label Dies (available from 4th June). To break up all the Very Vanilla, I cut a second Stitched Nested Label in Cajun Craze and layered it under my sentiment label.

This was a fairly quick and easy card that would suit just about anyone. Hope you like it :)
