Today’s Diva Coffee Break Designers’ Challenge was the color combo of Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac, Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze. I was ok until she added Baja Breeze! Whoa! I don’t know why color challenges are more difficult for me. I love the sketch ones…guess I have more to think about when using specific colors.
This card actually came out softer than I thought it would. The Bashful Blue seemed to soften the Lovely Lilac and Pink Passion colors. I’m giving you a sneak peak of the Sale-A-Bration set, Polka Dot Punches…isn’t it cute? It has 4 stamps and each line up perfectly with our punches! (The other two stamps fit the new Heart Punch and the Scallop Circle punch.
I started with a base of Lovely Lilac and layered with Bashful Blue. I stamped the upper portion with the circle flower in Bashful Blue for a tone-on-tone look. I added a strip of Baja Breeze designer paper on top of Pink Passion. I stamped the 5-petal flower in Pink Passion twice on Whisper White and punched with the 5-petal punch. Then I added the large star punch out of Pink Passion in between the two 5-petal punches for a unique look. the center of the 5-petal punch I also stamped in Lovely Lilac and punched with 1/2 circle punch…then placed a pink Rhinestone brad in the center of the entire piece, layered it onto the 1 3/4 circle punch out of Lovely Lilac. The side flower was stamped in Lovely Lilac on Whisper White and punched with 1 1/4 circle punch, then layered on 1 3/8 circle of Lovely Lilac…then cut in half. Again I stamped the flower in Pink Passion, punched with the 1/2 circle and layered that onto the flower (cut in half first). Finally, I stamped Good For You from Really Retro stamp set and punched with the Word Window punch, added a Bashful Blue mini brad to the side. Pretty simple card…just LOTS of punches!
