CCJCC1 Color Challenge


Create with Connie and JulieFor my Create with Connie and Julie Color Challenge card, this week’s challenge is to use Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip and  Really Rust.  Well…mine has a little Really Rust in the Designer paper!  You can play along!  Upload your card, use CCJCC1 in the title and place the direct link in Mister Linky over on Create with Connie and Julie!

I used the small tag from the Stampin’ Up! Tabletop Settings Bigz XL Die to make a candle.  That was one of the first things I noticed when I saw that die…even before I knew it was supposed to be a tag!

I cut the tag in the Big Shot with Very Vanilla cardstock and then embossed it with the Big Shot and the Finial Press impressions folder.  I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint sponged around the edges and it really does shimmer!  I stacked several dimensionals on top of each other and curved the candle so it looks 3D off the card.  The flame is actually the leaf from the same Tabletop Settings die.  I cut it with Summer Sun cardstock and used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint on it,too…it really shines!

I started with a layer of Taken with Teal cardstock that I used the Cutter Kit Distressing tool around the edges.  Then I sponged some Basic Brown ink on the edges.  I added another layer of Autumn Meadows Designer Paper.  Next I placed a strip of the Taken with Teal pattern from the Autumn Meadows Designer Paper pack on the left side. I added a Scallop Edge border with my Scallop Edge punch and Soft Suede cardstock and tucked it slightly under the designer paper strip.  I wrapped the Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon around and adhered it to the back.  I completed the flat bow with two more loops on the front, then placed the 5/8 Neutrals Jumbo Vanilla Brad in the center (it goes thru to the back of the Taken with Teal cardstock.)  Everything was placed on the base card of Kraft cardstock.
