Such a beautiful, much loved colour this week in the Art With Heart - Colour Creations Blog Hop!
Cherry Cobbler truly is one of my most used colours. Namely because it's a go to Christmas colour - and we sure do make a lot of Christmas projects each year! I had to really scratch my head to think about what other current Stampin' Up! products I have that I could use to really show off the beauty of this colour. It didn't take me long to remember the gorgeous Ranunculus stamp set - that flower is perfect!
There are just a couple of small differences with the two cards I made. On the first one, I stamped the ranunculus with Early Espresso ink, coloured with Blends, then die-cut the beautiful image from Ranunculus Romance stamp set.
I also included a scrap of Sun Prints Designer Series paper as a layer under the label. The background stamping is Gray Granite to go with the Designer Series Paper.
On the second card, I stamped and coloured the image, in the same way, but then rather than die-cutting it, I tore the Very Vanilla card on a slight angle across the bottom and mounted it onto an extra piece of Cherry Cobbler card. The background stamping is Crumb Cake and I added a few pieces of foliage, die-cut in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, which I had sitting on my desk, left over from making Blushing Bride Tea Cup cards a few weeks ago.
These cards are quite formal, but not at all difficult to make, as long as you have a set of foliage dies, and enjoy a bit of colouring in. I have listed all of the products used at the very bottom of this message if you would like to scroll down.
