Celebrating In Color

Welcome to another A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  This month's kit is Celebrating In Color and it's just that  celebration of all five of the 2022-2024 In Colors.  Today I am all about Starry Sky.  It's a dark deep saturated blue that is rich and stately and totally gorgeous.

I created a card using one of the printed envelopes and three of the stamps in the kit.  To start I grabbed a piece of Starry Sky Cardstock and a Thick Basic White card base.  I like a top fold so I cut a 4 1/4" x 11" piece and scored it in half at 5 1/2".

The background, which is the inside of one of the envelopes, includes some Gold Leafing.  I swiped Liquid Glue across here and there and then rubbed the gold leaf to the sticky spots.  I like to use an adhesive remover to buff off the excess gold leaf.

On a piece of Starry Sky I stamped and embossed the word "happy" with Gold Embossing Powder. Then I carefully painted an ombre effect inside each letter with Starry Sky and Whisper White Ink Pads.  As I was adding Wink of Stella it blobbed out so, I had to rub it all around to fix it.  I used the flap of the printed envelope to cut the flowers and leaves from the Summer Shadows Dies.

If you look to the right side of the card you'll see I tucked a scalloped border of In Color Glimmer Paper.  The color wasn't Starry Sky.  It was a scrap of Orchid Oasis that I had sitting on my stamp desk.  

I'll be having a class next week where I will stamp up all the pieces within this Celebrating In Color Kit.  Join me.  Bring your kit and we'll stamp together.
