It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. It’s a bright color challenge to inspire you this week!
INKED & TILED
Once the mini comes out, I have a hard time going back and using the regular catalog items. So, for this challenge, I pulled out the Inked & Tiled Stamp Set and gave it a “fall” look with these colors!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Pumpkin Pie cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Starry Sky cardstock was added on top.
- The 3 x 5-1/4 piece of O Holy Night Designer Paper was added on top.
- The two smaller and one larger Deckled Circles were cut from Basic White cardstock. The leaves clusters were stamped on the smaller ones with Cajun Craze Ink.
- The flower top was inked with Pumpkin Pie, the center with Cajun Craze Marker and the stem and leaf with Starry Sky Marker. An extra flower was added the same way.
- Some speckles from Quiet Meadow Stamp Set were added with stamped off Starry Sky Ink.
- The leaves circles were adhered to the front and the center circle was added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Adhesive Backed Sparkle Gems were added to the circles.
- Happy Birthday from Inked & Tiled stamp set was stamped with Starry Sky Ink on 3/4 x 2 Pumpkin Pie cardstock, cut the end at an angle and added with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
I’m really pleased with how this card turned out! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary
