It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. We have a fun color challenge for you this week! Wonder what everyone will use for their mystery color!
Something about this Heron Habitat stamp set appealed to me from the very first! I couldn’t wait to use it for this challenge! Maybe because our Florida home is right next to the White Heron Golf Course, so we see a LOT of them around here! I also used the new Deckle Rectangle Dies…seriously LOVE them! My “any color” choice was Pool Party!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Pool Party cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock was cut with the Deckle Rectangle Dies. (Save the cut-out piece for another project!)
- I backed the opening with a 2-1/2 x 4 piece of Hues of Happiness Designer Paper, then added it to the base card.
- The grass and cattails were cut with the Heron dies from Basic Black cardstock, and placed at the bottom of the opening. Another grass was cut with the Heron dies from Sahara Sand cardstock and trimmed, the adhered to the outside corner of the opening.
- The heron was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Basic White cardstock and colored with the Sahara Sand Marker, the beak with Pumpkin Pie. It was cut with the Heron Dies an added to the outside of the opening with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the trimmed grass around it.
- The birds were stamped with Memento Black Ink on the DSP.
- The greeting from Heron Habitat was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Pool Party cardstock and cut with the label in the Heron Dies. It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A trio of Faux Sea Glass Shapes were added to the front.
I’m SO happy with how this turned out! I love the color combo! OK, go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
