CCMC 300 A Blog Hop

Good morning, Friends! Are you confused? Ha ha!! Many of you know that Typepad is having some major issues and it has been days since anyone can get onto their blogs including Create with Connie and Mary. Big bummer!! Anyway, we decided to bypass the main site and do a blog hop! How fun is that?!! You may have hopped here from Mary's blog. But no worries because by taking the tour, you will get to see everyone's creations! So it's time for the Thursday challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we have a color challenge!

Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Basic Grey are the colors for this week! Very interesting and fun! Here is how I put them all together!

I wasn't sure how I was going to put these together but I like my end result! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • Take another piece of Crumb Cake and use the 3" circle die to cut a circle out of the middle then run through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain embossing folder
  • Sponge the inside of the circle with Crumb Cake ink
  • Stamp the branch from Morning Meadow in Crumb Cake onto the card base then adhere embossed piece onto the card base with dimensionals
  • Stamp the bird onto Very Vanilla using Basic Grey ink and cut out
  • Stamp the greeting onto a strip of Very Vanilla using Basic Grey ink and flag the end then adhere other end to back of bird
  • Adhere bird to card with dimensionals
  • Punch a flower from Calypso Coral card stock using the itty bitty shapes punch pack and adhere to the bird
  • Add a rhinestone to flower center
A very neutral card with that little pop of color! Love it! Now, instead of going to the Create with Connie and Mary website to see what the other designers did, take the tour by clicking on the button below! It will direct you to Debbie Henderson's blog!
