SSINKspiration Color Sketch #SSINKCC52: 25 Again

Good morning!  Hope you were able to find a little bit of cool to escape our weekend heat, one of the nice things about my studio being in the basement is this time of year it's nice and comfortable.  Today the SSINKspiration team is back and we have a new color challenge to play with.  It's always fun mixing some of the new colors with our existing color families for more ideas.  I decided to use the 25 Again stamp set (I love the fun, cheeky sayings and several of the images are perfect for coloring and I've been lovin' the Stampin' Blends lately.

I started with Balmy Blue cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock for the card front that was embossed with the Big Shot and Maps Etc. Embossing Folder (I did sponge over the cardfront with Crumb Cake ink to really help highlight the embossing.  Next I took a piece of Call Me Clover Designer Series Paper from the 2018-2020 In Colors Designer Series Paper Stack and matted it with Pacific Point cardstock.

For the stamped image I stamped it in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then colored it in, using the Crumb Cake Blends for the cake, as well as Pacific Point, Call Me Clover, and a little Pineapple Punch for the flame.  After coloring the image I cut it out with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The greeting was stamped in Basic Black ink on Balmy Blue cardstock and then cut out with the Big Shot and Layering Ovals Framelits before attaching to the cardfront with dimensionals.  The final touch was to add a couple Metallic Pearls.

Since everyone has a birthday it's always good to have a wide variety of birthday cards for anyone on your list and this set provides some fun and modern images.  Make sure to check out the other design team cards using this same color challenge and then play along, we would love to see what you create using these same colors.
