When I first heard that Lisa picked Blue, Orange and Moss for our color challenge, I hesitated. But, after playing with them, I really do like them! Two out of the three colors I chose will be retiring after this catalog is over…Brocade Blue and Mellow Moss.
I just recently purchased Stampin' Up!'s Simply Adorned charm and coordinating Chaming Stamp Set (available as a write-in item…it is not in the catalogs yet). I really love the small sized stamps in this set. I have plans to make a lot of these charm inserts! I think they are darling!
I knew I didn't have any coordinating designer paper that matched the colors we were suppsoed to use, so I created my own. I used the small medallion stamp in Chaming and used Pumpkin Pie, Mellow Moss and Brocade Blue randomly over the Whisper White cardstock. I layered it on a wide band of Pumpkin Pie and then a layer of Brocade Blue. I tied the white Satin Stripe Ribbon around and tied a bow. I used the word background stamp in Charming for the background of my circle element, then my Stampin' Write Markers to color in the floral vine. I punched with the 1 3/8 circle punch, then layered on the Scallop Circle Punch. I pierced the holes in each of the scallops with my piercing tool. The background Mellow Moss I ran thru the Big Shot with the new Square Lattice Impressions Folder. Then layered it on my base card of Brocade Blue. I repeated the process for my 1 x 1 1/4 charm insert. I like how these turned out!
