CCMC137 – Baby Blossoms

Every Thursday, Create with Connie and Mary has a challenge for everyone to play along!  This week we have a color challenge using Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz!  Beautiful colors together and they go along with the Springtime Vintage Suite of products we are featuring this week on Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition! 

 

 

My card this week is a departure of my usual, don't you think?  Can you see how I used the Baby Blossoms stamp set?  I stamped the background with the small flower stamps tone-on-tone on the Rose Red cardstock with Rose Red Classic Ink, then punched with the 2 1/2 Circle Punch.  I also stamped another stamp in this set on the Pear Pizzazz with Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink and punched with the 1" Circle punch.  I also punched a 1 3/8" Pink Pirouette circle.

 

 

 

I started with a base of Rose Red and layered on Baja Breeze.  Next I layered on Whisper White.  I cut a square of Baja Breeze cardstock and ran it thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I ran a strip of Sticky Strip down the left side, then added Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding Ribbon scrunched and wrapped to the back.  I added a bow of the Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding on top.

 

I used the Two-Step Bird punch with Baja Breeze cardstock, and used the Square Lattice on the wing and a little pearl for his eye!  I placed on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added two of the leaves with Pear Pizzazz.  I stamped So Many Candles, so Little Cake from Bring on the Cake stamp set with Rose Red on the Very Vanilla.  Finally, I added three Pearls to the Rose Red circle.

 

Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team did for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge this week!  Grab your stamps and play along!  Upload your creation to Inlinkz over on Create with Connie and Mary!
