Cool Color Combination for CCMC342 Challenge

Today’s card was created for the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge:

Cool Color Combination

A great color combination that is understated, yet beautiful.  Here’s my card:

CCMC342 Color Challenge

CCMC342 Color Challenge

  • Spring is on my mind – Hello Honey is the perfect color for a spring flower and what goes with flowers …
  • Butterflies, of course – A large butterfly using Basic Black and Hello Honey and a small Basic Black butterfly combine for additonal spring elements on the card.

I hope you’ve enjoyed a quick glance at spring.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Enjoy, and happy stamping,
Sue

Fall for Challenges

Today’s card is inspired by 2 challenges: a sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches (FMS152) and a color challenge from Pals Paper Arts (PPA218).
Hello Fall for PPA218 and FMS152

  • Leaves from the Fall Fest stamp set were stamped in Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss, and Crumb Cake on Whisper White to form a frame.
  • To form the fall swag I stamped 2 leaves in Hello Honey and cut them out with the matching framelits – easy peasy.
  • The acorn, inspired by the piece of Color Me Autumn DSP, was stamped in Crumb Cake, fussy-cut, and placed on top of the leaves to form the fall swag.  I think I went a bit overboard with the Fall theme, but I do love it.

Hope you are enjoying a beautiful fall. Enjoy, and happy stamping!
Sue

Hello Fall x 2

It is beginning to feel like Fall on the island with the days getting shorter and the nights getting cooler.  This inspired me to create a Fall card.  I ended up creating one card for two challenges!  The two challenges are: Create with Connie & Mary CCMC318 – a color challenge – and Pals Paper Arts PPA217 – a sketch challenge.

Here’s the card:

CCMC318 & PPA217

  • The color combination of Hello Honey, Pool Party, and Basic Gray are perfect for a Fall card.
  • A layer of Very Vanilla was stamped with the Hardwood stamp using Basic Gray to provide the perfect background and reinforce the theme.
  • The fussy-cut wheat image was mounted on top of a Pool Party circle to become the focal point of the card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy, and happy stamping!
