CCMC 266

Good morning, Stampers! Create with Connie and Mary have another super challenge for you all! This week we are being challenge with some beautiful colors! Take a look!

These colors just spoke "fall" to me! And the beautiful new Sweater Weather designer paper has these colors! Perfect! Here is what I came up with.

A pretty simple card! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Sahara Sand with the right hand corners rounded with the corner rounder
  • Stamp the splotches from Gorgeous Grunge in Tangerine Tango onto the card base
  • Adhere three strips of the Sweater Weather designer paper to the card base
  • Use the Oval framelits to cut two ovals from Sahara Sand
  • Use the Occasions paper piercing pack to pierce an oval on the larger one then sponge both ovals using Sahara Sand ink
  • Adhere the ovals together and pop up onto card
  • Stamp greeting from Teeny Tiny wishes in Chocolate Chip ink onto the card
  • Stamp the leaf from Wonderfall in Tangerine Tango onto Whisper White, cut out and pop up onto card
  • Tie a piece of linen thread around a piece of 7/16" Natural Trim and through a Naturals designer button then flag both ends of the trim
  • Adhere the element to the leaf
Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the other designers did with these colors! I hope you will be inspired to play along! Thanks for stopping by!
