Every Thursday I participate in the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. The weekly challenge alternates between sketches and color combinations. I like both types of challenges. This week it is a color challenge.
Love this color combination. Right from the start I had an idea of the products i wanted to use, which makes things so much easier. I just received the Stitched Greenery die and was looking forward to using it. The Stitched Greenery Die is a standalone die in other words there is not coordinating stamp set. There are a few samples in the catalog showing the die (page 82 & 83). I was intrigued by it so I had to order it.
Isn't it a great background? It is subtle and yet adds so much texture and interest. I used the You're a Peach DSP and framed it with one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies. This pack of paper offers a lot of great peachy, floral, and basic designs in a pretty and fresh color combination. The striped paper is also from the You're a Peach DSP. I added a few flowers and leaves cut using the Pierced Blooms dies. These are my current favorite flower dies. The flower centers were simple punched from Pale Papaya CS and covered using the Shimmery Crystal Effects. The glossy lacquer contains flecks of glitter for a subtle sparkle.
The only stamping on this card is the hello from the Biggest Wish stamp set. I stamped the hello using Versamark ink on Calypso Coral CS and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I fussy cut it out and popped it up using dimensionals. Love how it turned out. You can also see that I decorated the inside of the card using a strip of the DSP and another flower.
This color combination is so pretty and fresh and definitely one to use again. Be sure to check out what the other members of the design team created using these colors.
Thanks for stopping by!
