CCMC 344

Hello everyone! Welcome to another great Thursday challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we have a beautiful color challenge! Take a look!

Blackberry Bliss, Rose Red and Blushing Bride are the colors we are to work with this week. And here is how I used them...

This is a super simple card but I do love how these colors look together with the Lotus Blossom!

  • Card base is Blushing Bride
  • Stamp the second layer of the flower image onto the card base using Blushing Bride ink
  • Flag the bottom of a piece of Whisper White card stock
  • Stamp the solid image of the flower from the Lotus Blossom set using Blushing Bride ink onto the banner
  • Stamp the second layer of the flower using Rose Red ink
  • Stamp the detail image using Blackberry Bliss ink
  • Stamp the stem and the sentiment using Blackberry Bliss ink
  • Tie a piece of Blackberry Bliss stitched satin ribbon around the banner and tie a knot then adhere to the card with dimensionals
Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the other designers did with this challenge. I hope that you will play along with us this week! We always love to see what you do with the challenges! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. These colors are perfect for a stamp such as Lotus Blossom. Also love how you used the flower to stamp tone on tone down the side.

  2. LOVE this card! In fact, I used it for my "bonus" card at last night's Club meeting! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  3. Looks like you and I were on the same wavelength this week using the Lotus Blossom. Love your creation!

  4. Ooh, I love the way you featured this color combination with the flower - adds high and low lights in just the right places!

  5. What a lovely card! I especially love the subtle lotus blossoms stamped along the side, such a nice detail.

  6. A beautiful lotus flower with those colors, just stunning! The subtle blossoms down the edge are a great background!
