Swap colour palettes for a different style!

Well, originally I was only going to make one card for today’s post. However, I don’t know about you but I need to send out a lot of thank you cards. So instead, swap colour pallettes for a different style and you’ll be making loads of cards in no time. This is a great technique when you need to make quite a few cards, but don’t want to use hundreds of stamp sets to get a variety of cards to send out! I wanted to make cards that were bright and fresh, part of me was hoping spring isn’t far away, but that is wishful thinking! So let’s get started. 

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY DESIGN-TEAM WORK FOR THE LITTLE PAPER TREE - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Swap colour palettes for a different style

Swap colour palettes for a different style: fresh spring style

Start off by stamping the branches for the Sweet Home Wreath stamp set in Over Coffee ink, then next layer up the foliage in Garden Party and Lime Rickey. These are fairly easy to align especially with the coordinating die to cut it out.  In addition, stamp and die-cut a selection of the foliage fro the stamp set in the same inks. 

For the flowers and berries, stamp and die-cut these in It’s A boy, Something Borrowed and Suede Shoe inks. Add the wreath to a white card panel, using foam pads to add dimension. Next, add the foliage/flowers and berries with varying depths of dimension for interest. 

For the sentiment, die-cut the Just Thanks die three times, layering up with glue for stability. Next, smoosh this down into you embossing ink pad and cover with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder. After heat setting add this to the card along with Lucy’s Cards Sprinkles: Big dots to embellish. 

swap colour palettes for a different style: bright vibrant spring style

For this card, I went for a more vibrant colour scheme for a bright spring style with vibrant reds and greens contrasting against a dark blue card base. 

For the wreath and foliage, stamp these in Twilight, Lemongrass and Deck The Halls ink. The flowers/berries were stamped in Coral Cobana, Samba and Rouge in. With this card, I used a different thanks die from Catherine Pooler: So Happy Thanks

The card uses the same sequins to embellish the card. The beauty of these sequins is that they change and take on the colours of the card you use them one. So for the first card, they appear blue and turquoise, but here they are pink and red reflecting the flowers.
