CCMC247 Stippled Blossoms

I love this Stippled Blossoms set…I think everyone knows I love flowers!  In fact, I used this set for one of my weeks on Create with Connie and Mary's Card "Create"tions!  Today's Create with Connie and Mary sketch fit the images perfectly so I pulled it out again to use.



I think what makes this card so different is the colors!  I'm a happy camper that Pool Party is staying in the lineup for the next catalog.  I don't know what I would have done without it!  I kept the rose simple…just stamped off with Real Red to get a two-tone look.



Here are the details:

  1. The base card is 4 1/4 x 11 of Pool Party, folded in half.
  2. I ran a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White thru the Big Shot with the Honeycomb Embossing Folders.
  3. I cut a 2 x 4 1/2 piece of Sent with Love Designer Paper and offset towards the right side.
  4. I cut a small 1/2" x 3" strip of Real Red cardstock with the Finishing Touches Edgelit and tucked it under the right top side of the Designer Paper towards the top.  I also cut a 3/4" strip of Real Red for the Sweet Essentials greeting.
  5. I stamped off the solid rose image from Stippled Blossoms with Real Red ink, then stamped it full strength with the outline image.  I did the same with the leaves and Pool Party ink.  The rose and leaves were placed on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. Finally, I added two pearls as accents and to fill the space a little on the Designer Paper.

I like the "trellis on trellis" look with the Honeycomb folder combined with the print from the Sent with Love Designer Paper!

I am with you about the Pool Party and aren't you glad to have Soft Sky return?  I am a total fan of your color palette and can't get enough of it.  Awesome focal rose with a stamp set that I haven't seen in a while–thanks for bringing it front and center.  Smiles, Eiizabeth

I am also super excited about Pool Party staying on (and Calypso Coral too). I love your color choices and I never would have thought to pair Pool Party with Real Red even tho I love both those colors. And they totally work together! Beautiful card, Connie!

I'm really happy about Pool Party and Calypso Coral staying on; I've not gotten my fill of using either of them!  I love your pairing of crisp and clean Pool Party with the rich and spicy Real Red.. Great combination for a beautiful card!
