This week’s challenge was to use Old Olive, So Saffron, Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie. Bright! Actually, I did like the result! I think this set, Window Dressing, is SO cute! I wanted to make some swaps cards with it, but ran out of time…
On this card, I did use some of the striped Old Olive paper from Summer Picnic…it is such a great textured stripe. I also couldn’t believe I actually had this ribbon that matched the colors EXACTLY!
I stamped the window and pumpkin images with Basic Grey on Very Vanilla and then used my watercolor crayons to color and shadow the images. I mounted it on So Saffron and used the ticket corner punch on the top corners. Then I overlapped a piece of Pumpkin Pie and a piece of Rose Red behind the So Saffron piece. To My and Friend from Fundamental Phrases were stamped with Basic Grey also. I punched the Trio of flowers from So Saffron and placed an Old Olive mini brad in each center. I love how this came out! Even with coloring, the card came together pretty easy! If I have time, I may cut some paper and take them with me on the plane to finish. Of course, I’ll need to use only Stampin’ Up! current product, but I’m sure I can find something to replace the paper and ribbon I used.
I’m anxious to see what the other Blogger’s did with this week’s challenge!
Have a great weekend.
