Perfect!

Hello fine friends! It is color challenge time this week at Create with Connie and Mary! This is such a pretty color combo! Here is what I came up with:

Perfect

My DSP background is from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack. I love love love all the designs of this DSP! I ran my top strip of card stock through the Big Shot using the Honeycomb embossing folder. I like how it mimics the honeycomb pattern of the paper. My sentiment is from Perfect Pennants and I used the ever so useful Handheld Stapler to attach a strip of Pool Party.

Seriously, I love that thing! It is powerful enough to staple through some pretty thick stuff and gentle enough for the more fragile. Anywho, thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll pop on over to see the other designer’s cards at Create with Connie and Mary. They will provide you with great ideas and EYE CANDY! 😉 It’s sure to get your creative groove going so come along and play with us!

Hello Friends,

It’s time for another challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.  This week it is a color challenge.  At first I thought I may struggle with it but as it came along I realized that I really like it!  This challenge was a good reminder for me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things.

I even got out the Crystal Effects to play with because it had been awhile since I used it. The Lovely Lace embossing folder gives it detail without being too “fussy”.  The sentiment is from the “Hello There” hostess set.

In this picture you can better see where I put the Crystal Effects over the sentiment. I stamped it using the Tuxedo Black Momento ink and had no problems with it smearing.  Lastly, I topped it off with a sweet Wild Wasabi Candy Dot. 🙂
