Dynamic Duos No 21

Oh my, two posts in one day, what is going on?! 
This is how it began:
I keep seeing cards using the triple time stamping technique.  Dawn Olchefske has a fabulous video here.  I plunged in with a card for one of the residents, have a look:

The colours here are Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.
BUT then I saw this week's Dynamic Duos blog challenge, which is to use Always Artichoke and Certainly Celery.  I was so struck by the cards made by the design team, as I have never used my Always Artichoke card stock.  I instantly knew what I wanted to do, and here it is:
The overall card is only 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" but it fits in a C6 envelope.  You can see the technique for yourself on the video, it's very clever.  I have used a flourish background stamp in Certainly Celery, then the flower from the Fresh Vintage stamp set, and stacked the Whisper White cards one on top of the other and stamped away, first the sentiment, then the flourish, then the flower in Always Artichoke.  As soon as I put the first flower on it I fell in love with it.  The photo was taken late at night and doesn't do the colours justice, but I don't want to miss the deadline for the challenge.
I wound some of the SU linen thread round the top two layers and added a button, then stuck each white sheet on top of it's Always Artichoke sheet, then lined up the flowers as they'd been stamped originally.  I threaded a button with the linen thread then glued it into place.
This was such a fun card to make and I'd like to say thanks so much to Dynamic Duos as I'd never have thought of putting these two colours together, but they work really well.
Told you I'd be back soon, didn't I?!
Thanks for looking in and don't forget to scroll down as I put another card on earlier today, too.

  1. This is a great card. I love the technique you have used, must have a go myself, it's so effective. The colours go so well together too.

    P.S. I love the new SU catalogue, you're right, they have excelled themselves. So many lovely things to chose from. I can feel an order coming on!
