And here’s Tami’s card that inspired me:

The layout of this card is what first caught my eye, with the strip of Gold Foil behind the main image, and anyone who knows me knows that I just love emboss resist.  It’s so cool, isn’t it?  And I loved the way Tami used a coloured image of the starfish to complement the white ones in the background.

I had a hard time deciding which stamp set to use because there are just so many gorgeous ones in the Annual Catalogue this year.  Oh my gosh!  But I  finally decided on the beautiful Artistically Asian set.  This is the first time I have had a play with it and I can definitely see many more cards and projects being created with this set.  Love, love, love!!


Artistically Asian Stamp Set

So here’s my card.  I wanted the focal image to shine, so I used Kraft cardstock as well as muted and natural tones so that the gorgeous bamboo image would pop.  To add to the delicacy of the style I took a deep breath and my paper snips and fussy cut the image out, but it was totally worth it (and I don’t mind a bit of fussy cutting).  What do you think?

I love how subtle the friendship symbol looks stamped in VersaMark down the left-hand side, and the Pink Pirouette sponging adds to the delicate feel of this card too.  The sentiment was heat embossed and cropped using the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Dies.  A sprinkling of black and clear sequins completes the project.

If you like this colour combination, please feel free to save and share it.  You can find more inspiration on my Pinterest Colour Inspiration Board.

    Gail, your work is breathtakingly beautiful. How different you CASEd this card, but you did it with every element with a complete image. This set is beautiful and you have done it justice, very inspiring indeed. 🙂

    I just love everything on this card… color combo, the choice of stamp set and emboss resist technique. Everything goes together perfectly.

      Aww, thanks Satomi. I was trying to capture the beauty of the Japanese landscape with this card. That’s why I used Pink Pirouette – it reminded me of Cherry Blossoms. And the natural colours and textures with the kraft and tone-on-tone stamping were meant to emulate nature too. xoxo
