CCMC162 Pennant Flower

Today is the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  We have a fun color combination for you to try.  But…don't do as Mary and I did!  Mary used the wrong blue and had to re-do hers.  She was laughing and emailed me about it.  I finished my card, uploaded it and saw that I had used the wrong yellow!  Both of us must have had a mental block when it came to this color combination!  Really!  It isn't that hard!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with these colors…then play along.  We have BLOG CANDY this month!  You could win a FREE subscription to Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition just by playing along with this week's challenge!


Pennants are all the rage in stamping and scrapbooking!  I love the new coordinating products that Stampin' Up! offers…the Pennant Parade stamp set, the Pennant Builders punch and the Perfect pennants die for the Big Shot!  I had several punch pieces laying around from the Tangerine Tango Patterns Paper Stack and formed what looked to me like a flower!  So…I built a flower from the scallop Pennant punches!



The base of the card is now So Saffron and I layered on Pacific Point that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I added a band of Whisper White that I stamped with Perfectly Penned Stamp Set in Pacific Point Classic Ink.  I added Rhinestone Jewels horizontally and vertically around the greeting.


I adhered all the points of the Pennants together, then covered the center with a 1" So Saffron Circle that I ran thru with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I added a Itty Bitty Circle punched in Pacific Point and added the circle button with White Bakers Twine on top.  I added the flower to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals!


Again, make sure to check out the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team this week!  We'd love to see your creations using the Color Challenge!

Clever girl! Great use of the new punch and looks like you got to practice quite a bit to get the color just right…haha!
