CCMC 163

Good morning everyone! I hope you are ready for another fantastic challenge with the team at Create with Connie and Mary! This week is a color challenge. And what fantastic colors they are! Check 'em out!
Aren't they pretty?! I love them together! The colors are Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, and Pacific Point. I do have to confess that Pacific Point really scares me! It's a pretty color but I have a really hard time using it. So check out what I finally came up with:
I do like the way it turned out, though. I started with a card base of Tangerine Tango, then added a piece of So Saffron. The next layer is a piece of Tangerine Tango that went through the Big Shot with the Stripes embossing folder. Before I embossed the card stock, I used my brayer and Tangerine Tango ink to ink up one side of the folder. That's what gives the stripes a two-toned effect. For my focal point I inked the stamp from Friends Never Fade in Tangerine Tango and stamped it on Whisper White and then cut around it. I also stamped the flower from the same set on Whisper White in So Saffron and cut it out. I punched a piece of Pacific Point with the dotted scallop ribbon punch and glued it behind so it just "peeked" out (remember, it scares me - lol). This is glued to another larger piece of Whisper White and then popped up onto the card. An antique brad is the flower center and the flower is shaped and popped up as well. 

Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website for even more inspiration. Then I hope that you will take some time and participate in this week's challenge! I always enjoy seeing what you all come up! Thanks for stopping and have a super day!

  1. I was wondering how you got such a wonderfully "deep" impression with the folder - that bit of ink brayered on makes all the difference in the world. Awesome card and thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Another beauty Deb! Love the way you inked up the texture!

  3. I love the "touch" of Pacific Point, it is just perfect. Great job.

  4. Love that brayered folder--adds so much to the stripes! Love how you've used this week's colors and that little bit of Pacific Point is just the perfect amount in my opinion, lol!! Great card!
