Happy Thursday friends and welcome to another week at Create with Connie & Mary! I think you're really going to like this week's color challenge:
OK, really and truly I try not to use Pool Party but when it's asked of me....well, I have to oblige! I have so many scraps on my desk from the Sale-a-Bration paper, Everyday Enchantment that I went looking for an idea to use them up. I found it in this great sketch from a previous Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge:
I got out my Petite Pennants Builder punch, my designer paper scraps, ink pads and got bizzy! Here's what I made for you:
I have to say, I really like this card! Those pennants are just so happy and the colors so fresh together that it makes me smile! The stamped images are all from Bring on the Cake and for the focal image, I used my ink pads and blender pens to color the letters. The little scalloped border was cut first with the Edgelit die and run through the Big Shot with the coordinating Adorning Accents embossing folder. I love the texture it provides.
Here's a little close-up so you can see that I punched a 1/16" hole in the corner of each pennant through which I strung some Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine. A mini glue dot worked to hold the bitty bows in place and secure the banner. The Pool Party background was made with a stamp from the same set, Bring on the Cake, just stamped repeatedly in Pool Party ink.
I used the same stamp to make a border on the inside as well as another sentiment from the same set. Boy, that set is a great one with so many sentiments to choose from!
So what do you think? Inspired? I hope so. Check out the rest of the Design Team at Create with Connie & Mary for even more eye-candy. We would love to have you join us this week so be sure and link up your beautiful creations by Wednesday, March 21st at Noon (EST). I hope to see you there!
