Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect in Red and Black

I used the Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect stamp set to create my card to share today.  The colors are a little unusual for a humming bird…but I thought that it worked.  🙂

Picture Perfect - Stamp With Amy K

The layout for my card was inspired by Retrosketches #200.

And the colors for my card were inspired by Can You Case It #105.

I started by adhering a panel of Real Red DSP from the Brights DSP Stack to a panel of Whisper White card stock and then to a Basic Black card stock panel with SNAIL.

Picture Perfect 2 - Stamp With Amy K I pulled the black threads from one of the spools in the Baker’s Twine Combo Pack and I wrapped it around the panel twice, tied a bow and then adhered the panel to a Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I punched a small panel of the It’s My Party DSP Stack with the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.

Picture Perfect 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the humming bird, flower and sentiment from the Picture Perfect photopolymer stamp set in Real Red and Tuxedo Black Memento inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Picture Perfect 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I colored four of the medium size White Perfect Accents with a Black Sharpie Marker, let them dry completely, then adhered them to the card front.

Picture Perfect 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a strip of the It’s My Party DSP to a Whisper White panel on the inside of my card.
