CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Color It


Our theme for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop is “Color It”!  Oh, I’m sure the Design Team will have LOTS of fun with the theme this week!  Can’t wait to see what they have done!  I used Mediterranean Moments for my card…this scene reminds me SO much of the narrow streets in Europe.  So thankful for Stampin’ Up! to provide such awesome incentive trips…the Mediterranean Cruise was a trip of a lifetime for us!


Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Mint Macaron cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 2-1/4 x 4 piece of Succulent Garden Designer Paper in the Tip Top Taupe grid pattern was added to the Bottom of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Tip Top Taupe cardstock.
  • On a 3-1/4 x 4-1/2 piece of Whisper White, the Mediterranean Moments image was stamped with Black Stazon Ink, the watercolored with an AquaPainter and Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Sweet Sugarplum, and Tip Top Taupe Stampin’ Write Markers.  It was placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon was adhered to the back, then a small piece tied on the front for the bow.
  • The smallest Stitched Shapes Circle was stamped with the birthday greeting from Circle Of Spring in Black Stazon Ink, then added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


OK…make sure to check out our next stop at Mary’s blog for inspiration or backwards to Melissa!

You’ve given me the inspiration to crack open that stamp set I bought a month ago. I just love your soft watercolors.

Ooo, wow! Love the added DSP with your wonderfully colored image. Gives it a homey/restaurant feel.
