In Colors

Rise & Shine

How are you?  Hope you are doing well.  I made it a full 7 days of posting here!  It hasn't always been early but I am giving myself some grace and just working on sharing something here everyday.   Today's project was one we made at the last face to face event I did.  It seems so long ago, when in fact it was less than 3 weeks ago. How things have changed.


This is a sleeve for the Acetate Card Boxes.  We used a sponge brayer to color the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Paper and attached it to some Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  Grapefruit Grove is one of the 2018-20 In Colors and I really like how it plays so nicely with Petal Pink and Calypso Coral.   We stamped the mug from Rise & Shine (Sale-A-Bration 2020) and cut it out using the Cup of Cheer dies.  

Wondering what's inside the box?


A package of Mug Treats along with a spoon!  This particular treat is a Cinnamon Roll Cake Mix and even comes with a little package of topping.  This would make a great little sweet gift and since you are starting with an acetate box, quick to make too!


Remember Sale-A-Bration and the Coordination Products ends on March 31!  Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping by.

Band Together for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #CCMC588

It is Thursday which means it is time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week it is a sketch challenge #CCMC588.


I have the Band Together bundle on my mind since it is one of 8 bundles that are an extra 5% off during the Online Extravaganza (11/20-11/22)


I cut the largest circle using the Layering Circles die in Purple Posy card stock (Purple Posy card stock along with the other In Color card stocks are also on the Online Extravaganza).  I stamped the large flower in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I colored in the flowers using Night of Navy and Purple Posy Stampin' Blends.  Since the card stock is Purple Posy there isn't too much coloring to be done on the flowers. I colored the space around the flowers using the Dark Night of Navy Stampin' Blend.  


I applied Clear Wink of Stella on the flowers to give them some extra shine.  The flower circle was layered on to a Purple Posy scalloped circle.


The Night of Navy card stock was embossed using the Scripty 3-D folder.  I cut one of the beautiful bands and which is partially hidden by the circle of flowers.  The little sentiment is from the Free as A Bird stamp set.  The little butterflies were cut using the Butterfly Beauty dies.  The card base is a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Purple Posy card stock.  

This was a fun sketch and I loved using one of my favorite bundles, Band Together.  Be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the design team created using this sketch.

Hello Lovely Lipstick!

Still playing around with the new colors.  Let me introduce you to Lovely Lipstick, a 2018-20 In Color.  


Here I paired Lovely Lipstick with Night of Navy & Early Espresso  (Neutrals Collection).  Isn't it just a beautiful color and perfectly named.  In fact this color would indeed make a lovely lipstick.  I also used another 2018-20 In Color Call Me Clover for the leaves.  The 2018-20 In Colors are bright, happy and  clean colors.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
