I had some leftover 2-1/4" by 2-1/4" Petal Passion Designer Series Paper pieces that I was saving for the perfect project. When I saw Teneale's card with the white space colored in Pool Party I was amazed! I used the Light Pool Party Stampin' Blend to color in my background, but I didn't stop with coloring just the leaves with Light & Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends like Teneale did--just kept on coloring! This card uses Light Rich Razzleberry, Light Calypso Coral, Light Pink Pirouette, and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.
I adhered my DSP piece to a 2-1/2" Basic Black Card Stock Square and then added a 2-1/2" by 1" strip of black and white striped DSP from the same set. I tied on a length of Soft Sky Classic Weave Ribbon and set this aside while I built the rest of my card.
I embossed a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White panel with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder and adhered it to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Basic Black Card Stock mat. I adhered this to a Pool Party Card Stock card base.
I stamped a sentiment from the "Picture Perfect Birthday" stamp set in Pool Party onto a Whisper White piece and cut it out with one of the Layering Circles Framelits. I adhered this piece to a scalloped Basic Black Card Stock circle that I cut with another of the Layering Circles Framelits.
I adhered the colored DSP element to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and then added the sentiment piece, also with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I had so much fun coloring the first DSP piece that I colored another with Light Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. And of course I filled in the "white" space with the Light Pool Party Stampin' Blend.
