Today’s Bloggers’ Challenge is a color throwdown! We were to use Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo and a neutral. Can you say BRIGHT! I naturally thought of flowers…but no green in there. Then I looked at this stamp set and realized I had never used this image from the For All You Do set. The card came together pretty easy after that!
I started by stamping the flower image in Melon Mambo on Whisper White and layered it on both Melon Mambo and Chocolate Chip. Before putting it on the Chocolate Chip layer, I pierced each of the centers of the little flowers with my Paper Piercer and mat. Now the Chocolate Chip layer peeks thru the holes!
I used some Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper and layered it on Chocolate Chip. I needed some buttons in the Melon Mambo color, but didn’t have anything close to that color in my Stampin’ Up! supplies. I decided to use the Button die in my Big Shot with the Melon Mambo cardstock. I cut small slivers of Chocolate Chip cardstock to feed thru the holes in the buttons to look like thread! All these elements were layered on Crushed Curry and I wrapped some Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon around it and tied with a knot. Then placed everything on the base card of Chocolate Chip cardstock.
I love the contrast of colors…they just POP!
I hope you have a great weekend! I’m looking forward to relaxing a little!
