I am getting better about knowing what day of the week it is especially Thursday. Thursday is the one day I know there is something I need to have a project and blog post ready to go. Why? It is the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge day. This week it is a color challenge.
I have been playing with stamp sets and dies that will soon be retiring. My version of a farewell tour. I have a lot that will be retiring so I probably won't get to all of them but I am trying.
I used 4 things that will soon be retiring. Can you name them? For the flowers I used the Floral Essence stamp set (it is on sale at 40% off!!) and the Perennial Flower punch ( on sale 60% off). I inked the flowers in Blackberry Bliss and Bermuda Bay ink on Basic White CS, punched them out and then used a Blender pen to color the petals. I didn't use any additional ink just the ink that I stamped. The third item I used that is retiring is the sentiment stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink from Grace's Garden. The final retiring item is the Many Medallion dies (on sale at 40% off). I really do like this die and how it covers an A2 card front so well.
I assembled another flower but didn't use it on the front, so I popped it on the inside of the card. If you are wondering the ribbon is the Blackberry Bliss Striped ribbon from the 2020 Jan-June Mini catalog. Love this ribbon. It is one of my favorites and I only wish it came in more colors.
Hope you will check the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge out and see what the other members of the design team created with this color combination. Thank you for stopping by!
