Yahoo, it's Thursday and that means a new challenge at Create with Connie & Mary! This week we have a fantastic color combination for you. Check it:
Love it, right? These colors are so bright and happy that I had to give some love to the Recess stamp set from the Mini Catalog:
This card reminds me of my daughter and her love for jump ropes and hula hoops! I thought the Playdate Designer Series Paper was the perfect match for these happy colors. I used the big flower from the DSP and just cut down the 12x12 paper to the section that I needed.
Then I stamped my girl in Jet Black Stazon and colored her shirt, skirt and hula hoop with
my Stampin' Write markers a Blender pen and ink pads in the challenge colors. See the little bows in her hair? Yes, I drew those free-hand with a Tangerine Tango marker! I also rimmed the edge with a glue pen and then dipped it in Dazzling Diamonds because a little girl can never have too much sparkle!
I trimmed the main panel with a Tangerine Tango Scallop Ribbon Border and stamped the background randomly with the Recess hopscotch image inked in Old Olive.
Using the Cupcake punch (coming back in the new catalog July 1st) I made some Whisper White clouds which I sponged with Tempting Turquoise and stamped in the challenge colors with "Happy Sweet Day" from the Fabulous Phrases set.Of course, I couldn't forget the inside! Some Funky Four flowers were stamped in the challenge colors and the Apple Blossoms [hostess] sentiment just seemed to fit the feel and emotions of this card...happy thoughts do indeed make happy days! You'll make us happy if you play along at Create with Connie & Mary!
