This week is flying by! It is already Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week we have a sketch to challenge and inspire us!
One of the stamp sets I will miss is Seriously the Best stamp set. I like the combination of the fonts and cutting out the larger word. Here I embossed the thanks using White embossing powder on Flirty Flamingo cardstock and fussy cut it. The longer sentiment was also embossed using White embossing powder on Granny Apple Green cardstock.
I paired up the Granny Apple Green Gingham from the Brights 6" x 6" DSP with Flirty Flamingo. It is a happy, springy color combination. The umbrella was stamped on Flirty Flamingo DSP and punched out using the Umbrella Builder punch. The cute little bunch of flowers were stamped using Crumb Cake ink and colored using Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends. Yes, it had to be fussy cut but fortunately it isn't very big or detailed.
I created the stitched scallop edge using a die from the Stitched Be Mine dies. Here are the sizes of the cardstock I used.
- Thick Whisper White CS 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4"
- Flirty Flamingo CS 4" x 5-1/4", 1-1/4" x 3"
- Whisper White CS 3-7/8" x 5-1/4"
- Granny Apple Green DSP 3-7/8" x 4-3/4", 3/8" x 3-1/8"
- Crumb Cake scrap for umbrella handle
