CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Color Me Happy

It’s Saturday and you know what that means!!! It’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Design Team Blog Hop! This week’s theme is Color Me Happy…there are many, many selections of stamps to color in the catalogs!


Birthday Blooms
I REALLY, REALLY love to color…when I was small, the best gift you could give me was a new coloring book and crayons!  They had to be SHARP, NEW crayons, too!  I miss Stampin’ Up!’s Blendabilities…hoping they come out with something like them SOON!

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper.
  • Across the front is a 3/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Peekaboo Peach cardstock, stamped with the For You greeting in Birthday Blooms with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • The large blossom from Birthday Blooms was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Whisper White, then colored with the AquaPainter and Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and Pear Pizzazz Markers.
  • The blossom was cut out and adhered to a 4th from Largest Circle Framelit cut from Whisper White.  The circle is popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The blossom was highlighted with some Clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer.
  • Several Neutral Silver sequins were sprinkled around on the front.
