Are you enjoying all the new Stampin' Up! colors? This week the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge has a color challenge featuring 3 new Stampin' Up! colors; Mango Melody, Blueberry Bushel, and Gray Granite.
This color combination is from page 53 of the Stampin' Up! Annual catalog. ** When you are looking for new color combinations check out the colors in the Designer Series paper and the coordinating card stock packs. Lots of great color ideas!
Lately I have been trying to use just 1 or 2 stamp sets on a card. On today's card I used 3, Bunch of Blossoms for the flower, A Big Thank You for the Gray Granite border, and Enjoy Life for the sentiment.
I also used the Blossom Builder punch to create the flower. To create the flower petals, I inked the outline image full strength and the bold image was stamped off once to get the lighter Mango Melody color. The center of the flower was also punched from the Blossom Builder punch in Blueberry Bushel card stock. The Blueberry Bushel flourish was cut using the aptly named Flourish thinlits. Love that thinlit!
Stop by the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge blog and be inspired by the cards created by the other members of the design team. You can also get all the information on how you too can participate in this week's challenge.
