CCMC220 – Watercolor Winter

It's Thursday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary weekly challenge!  Are you ready to play along?  We'd love to see your creations!  We have a color challenge for you this week!  Since we are in Week 4 of the Holiday Edition 2012, I wanted to use one of the sets we are featuring.  Yes, I do have more sets than just this one…it just has captivated me right now!  lol!



And, here is ANOTHER Watercolor Winter card!  I did use much different colors on this one, though!



I went looking for Designer Paper that had the color challenge colors in it.  I found this piece in Twitterpated.  I haven't used that paper since the Occasions Mini was out! 

  1. The base card is Baja Breeze and I layered on Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the new Lacy Brocade folder.
  2. I cut a piece of the Twitterpated Designer Paper with a flag cut bottom on it and adhered on front.
  3. I used the Designer Frames Embossing Folder for the Oval in Baja Breeze and cut it out.
  4. I stamped Peace on Earth from Greetings of the Season in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White and punched it with the Extra Large Oval punch.
  5. I stamped the Poinsettias on Pink Pirouette with Cherry Cobbler!  I know…hard to see, but it really is Pink Pirouette!  Then I watercolored with my AquaPainter and Cherry Cobbler marker.  They are popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. I added Pearls in the center for a little bling!

So…there you go!  Another example using Watercolor Winter!  Are you getting sick of it yet?  Well, I have ONE MORE for you, so come back tomorrow!

Just beautiful!  I love the soft color of the poinsettias and the basic pearls in the center are the perfect accent!
