Today is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary challenge! We have a color challenge for you to try…one of your last chances to use up some of that Poppy Parade you have around! I am SO going to miss that color! It is so striking in this color combination…the red hot of Poppy Parade with the cool tones of Pool Party, and then Basic Black to make it POP!
I used Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Vogue stamp set…yes, it is retiring. I remember when it came out that I was SO in love with it and used it on almost everything! But, I must admit, it has been sitting on my shelf lonely. Thought I'd pull it out one more time.
I started with a base of Pool Party cardstock. I layered on Basic Black and Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot folder. I punched a 2 1/2" Circle from Pool Party cardstock, then stamped the bottom of the circle with the vine image from Vintage Vogue and the greeting from that same set in Basic Black on top. I stamped three Vintage Vogue flowers with Poppy Parade Ink on Whisper White and cut them out. I added Pool Party Designer Brads in the center and Pool Party leaves that were also cut out.
I used a scrap of Domestic Garden Designer Paper and layered it on Poppy Parade cardstock, and adhered it to the base card layers. I added the circle on top, then popped up the flowers around the edge of the circle. Finally, I added three little Pearls within the circle for some extra bling.
Make sure you check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary! Then grab your stamps and play along!
