CCMC 294

Good morning everyone! It's time for another fun Thursday challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we have a fabulous color challenge! Check out these great colors!!

Strawberry Slush, Old Olive and Basic Black are the bold bright colors for this week! I love them!! And I don't use Strawberry Slush nearly enough so I was so glad it was part of this challenge! Check out my card!

  • Card base is Naturals White
  • Stamp the Blessed Easter image in black StazOn onto a piece of Naturals White and use the Oval framelits to cut it out
  • Use the StrawberrySlush, Old Olive and Soft Sky markers and a blender pen to watercolor the image
  • Use the Occasions paper piercing pack to pierce an oval on a piece of Naturals White then adhere this to the card base with dimensionals
  • Adhere a strip of Basic Black card stock to card
  • Adhere the stamped oval to the card with dimensionals
  • Use the bitty banner punch to punch a banner from Strawberry Slush card stock and then adhere to card
  • Add two rhinestones
Find more inspiration from the other fabulous designers at Create with Connie and Mary. I hope you all will play along with us this week! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!!

  1. Debbie...this is beautiful! I love this! Fantastic the way the oval framelit sets the focal point for this the paper piercing! Into my faves! In fact, I may have to lift this to use for my Easter cards this year! So pretty!

  2. This is so gorgeous! Love the piercing around the oval and white on white! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  3. This card is so gorgeous! Your coloring is beautiful and the piercing is a great way to frame the oval. Plus, I love how you used Naturals White card stock for your card. I think the little flecks in it really go well with a botanical type card. I have always loved the Naturals card stock but forget to use them.

  4. Your card is totally awesome with the paper piercing and one single banner, adorable!

  7. WOW! This is simply beautiful! Love the touch of paper piercing and the subtleness of the blended colors!

  8. What a beautiful Spring card! I love the extra little details of the banner and paper piercing, they really make the card amazing.
