Color Challenge.....Kind Thanks
Happy Thursday Peeps!! Are you guys watching American Idol? I love that show and watch it every season! This is Season 10 and they have some fabulous talent and I love the new judges, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are amazing!!
Ok, onto today's card, this is a card I made with this week's color challenge on Splitcoast. This week the colors are Marina Mist, Certaily Celery and Rose Red. I decided to get out my Stampin Up Build a Blossom stamp set and matching punch. I got this back when they were first available and had never used them, I do that sometimes, fall in love with something in the catalog, or mini and then when I get it I just let it sit for awhile. Not sure why I waited on this one, I love the big ol' flower I made with this.
I stamped the flower with rose red ink onto rose red card stock and used the matching punch to punch out each petal. I then used a small 1 inch circle punch to layer up the petals. First I did use my bone folder to curl the petals a bit. I then used the same technique to do the leaves, certainly celery ink onto certainly celery card stock. I added an antique brad to the center.
The base of the card is Marina Mist card stock and I followed that with some whisper white that was embossed with the dot folder. I added a bit of marina mist DS paper and some marina mist satin ribbon. The sentiment comes from the Thank You kindly stamp set.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
