Ranunculus Romance Card Idea
January 05, 2022
I'm in love with Ranunculus Romance Bundle--it caught my eye on my first pass through the new January-June Mini Catalog (aka Spring Catalog). For my first creation using Ranunculus Romance Bundle I decided to go with a Brights color scheme. Brights are not my first choice as a rule, and I normally use one of the Brights Collection mixed in with other colors. But Ranunculus are bright in real life, so I decided to get out of my comfort zone and go for it!
For today's card I wanted to really concentrate on the many stamps in the Ranunculus Romance stamp set. If you like stamping, this is a phenomenal set with 10 outstanding cling stamps.
I used 2 different stamps to create a background on my Granny Apple Green card base with Granny Apple Green ink. I carried one of those images to the inside as well so that this is a really special card to say hello.
The multi-colored flower image was made by applying ink from Stampin' Write Markers directly to the stamp and then pressing onto the cardstock. I used Old Olive (to blend but not match the Granny Apple Green), Mango Melody, and Magenta Madness. And I did add Wink of Stella to all the flowers.
Magenta Madness, one of the 2020-2022 In Colors, is an "in your face" bold, hot pink. It's perfect here, and I actually found this color scheme in the Stampin' Up! In Color Coach Chart here. I mixed and matched a bit, but I find that all the colors in the Stampin' Up! Color Coaches work well together.
The coordinating dies for Ranunculus Romance Bundle are really outstanding, and I'll be sharing projects that feature them in the days ahead. For today's card, I used just one leaflet die and cut it to add texture to my hello card.
