CCMC 148

Good Thursday morning! Time for another great challenge from Create with Connie and Mary! This week Connie and Mary are challenging us with colors! Take a look at these pretty spring-like colors!

And here is my creation!

 I love these colors! I pulled out some new stamps to use with this challenge. I got out my Flower Fest and Happy Greetings sets. I started with a card base of card base of textured Wild Wasabi. Then I cut a piece of So Saffron and rounded opposite corners. Then I ran it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. Then I took a sponge dauber and So Saffron ink and rubbed the ink right over the embossed image. Then I cut a circle using my 3" circle die from Whisper White and stamped the greeting from Happy Greetings in Perfect Plum and then pierced right underneath the greeting. I took some scrap Whisper White and stamped the leaves and flower from Flower Fest in So Saffron and Wild Wasabi. The middle of the flower was stamped with the same flower only in Perfect Plum. To color these, I took a sponge dauber and used the same color ink pads to lightly sponge ink on the images. I really love this look! Then I cut them out. The So Saffron piece is glued down flat. The circle is popped up with the leaves glued flat to the circle. The So Saffron flower is popped up. The Perfect Plum flower center has a brad put in and popped up as well.

So now you get to see what the other designers have come up with. So go check them out at the Create with Connie and Mary site! Then make your creation and upload it to their site so we can all see! Remember to use all Stampin' Up! products to be entered into a drawing for a free subscription to Create Summer. They will be drawing the final winner soon!! I can't wait to see what you do with these colors!
