CCMC 272

Good morning, Friends! It's time for another Thursday challenge with the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we have a beautiful color challenge!

Such lovely colors! Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron and Bermuda Bay. Here's what I created!

I decided to go with a fall card using these colors. And I think it worked! We used to have a tree called a Purple Autumn Ash that would really turn purple in the fall! It was a beautiful tree!! That's what these razzleberry leaves remind me of. Here are the card details:

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • Layer of Whisper White with the leaves from Wonderfall stamped in So Saffron, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry
  • Stamp some splotches using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Crumb Cake then adhere panel to card
  • Stamp greeting from Perfectly Penned in VersaMark onto a piece of Bermuda Bay and emboss with white emboss powder
  • Flag bottom of panel and adhere to card
  • Cut a thin strip of Crumb Cake and adhere to banner then add three pearls
  • Stamp leave in Rich Razzleberry onto Whisper White and cut out then pop up onto card
Be sure to see what the other designers did with these colors! You can find their designs at the Create with Connie and Mary website. I hope that you will be inspired to play along!

  1. Gorgeous! I love the design with the different colors of leaves in the background.

  2. The background looks like DSP - awesome! I love the little touches you added with the pearls, too!

  3. I love your leaves in these beautiful colors! I haven't seen your Purple Autumn Ash tree but we have some trees around here with purple foliage and they are beautiful! So pretty to have the one leaf cut out and the banner accented with pearls! Great card!

  4. What a fun card! Love the "falling" leaves in these vibrant colors! I started out with this same stamp set in my hands, but could not get it to work for me. This is so pretty!

  5. Gorgeous color combination. Beautiful card. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Your card is so bright and cheery! Love all of the leaves and the way you embossed the sentiment in white to make it really stand out. Beautiful!
