Colour & Contour Thank You - Winners Blog Hop - Kylie's International Gallery

 Hi Everyone,

I am so excited today to be taking part in the June Winner's Blog Hop for the Kylie Bertucci International Gallery. Thank you so much to those of you who voted for me, I really appreciate your support.  I've used the 2020-2022 In Colours and the Colour and Contour and Biggest Wish stamp sets for my card, I hope that you will like it. Let me show you how I made it.


1 piece of misty moonlight card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of basic white card 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 3 5/8" x 5 3/8" and scraps for stamping
1 piece of 2020-2022 In Colour  dsp stack in misty moonlight 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 1/2" x 5 5/8"
Misty moonlight ink
Bumblebee ink
Just jade ink
Magenta madness ink
Memento Black ink
Blender Pens
Color & Contour stamp set
Scalloped Contour dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Biggest Wish stamp set
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the misty moonlight card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the dsp layer to the card front.

Put the smaller piece of basic white on the Stamperatus and add the uninked stamp in the position that you want it to stamp and then pick it up with the plate. Ink it up in the bumblebee and stamp, then move the plate down and stamp again and repeat until you have filled up the white card, changing the colour each time. I've used bumblebee twice as I don't have cinnamon cider (I don't like it but don't tell anyone haha).

Stamp 5 of the flower outlines on the scrap of basic white and then colour them with the blender pen (just dip the pen in the ink pad to pick up the ink) or you can stamp over them with the stamp if you prefer. I wanted to colour them for a more defined image.

Die cut the 5 images and then adhere them to the stamped white card alongside their corresponding coloured 'thanks'.  Stamp another sentiment in misty moonlight on the remaining piece of white card and add the strip of dsp to the right hand edge and then adhere inside the card. Adhere the the decorated piece to the card front and the card is complete.
