CCMC187 – Mixed Bunch

Oh…I love flowers and Stampin' Up!'s Mixed Bunch stamp set and punch are just right up my alley!!!  I have SO many flower sets…you wouldn't believe, but I keep buying more…and I do use them…so I don't feel bad!

 

Today we have a color challenge for you on Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  Here you go:

 

So…you can see I was challenged to use Mixed Bunch (one of the sets we are featuring this week on Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Edition!) with this color challenge…but I think I did it!

 

 

I started with a base of Confetti White cardstock.  I layered on the polka dot pattern from Patterns DSP in Crushed Concord.  Then I embossed the block of Sahara Sand with the Finial Press Impressions Folder.  I stamped the block of Pool Party with the filigree flower in Mixed Bunch with Pool Party Classic Ink.  Both the Sahara Sand and the Pool Party were layered onto a mat of Crushed Concord cardstock.  I added a Scallop Trim Border of Pool Party along the pattern paper. 

 

I stamped the flower on Whisper White with Crushed Concord Ink and punched with the Blossom Punch.  I stamped the flower center again with Pool Party and punched with the 1" Circle Punch and placed a Pool Party Pattened Brad in the center.   I added two "leaves" from the Blossom Punch and Pool Party cardstock, embossed with the Finial Press folder.  The flower is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I added a greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

 

Make sure to jump over to Create with Connie and Mary to see what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week!  And…grab your stamps and play along!  We love to see what you create!

WOW Connie, these colors look awesome the way you layered everything! I like how you used the Modern Label Punch for the leaves!
