All about the colour – CCMC#242

Today I am sharing a project I have made for the current challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary This week there is a colour theme using colours from the latest Stampin’ Up! In Colour series:

untitled2Aren’t those colours scrumptious? However, this really was a challenge for me as, being new to Stampin’ Up!, I’ve been building the basics of my stash and the only thing I had with this particular colour pallette was the Print Poetry paper pack and a raspberry ripple stamp pad. So no ribbons, no buttons, no colour-coordinated card, no lace … Here’s what I made:



Once I’d layered up the papers, I punched out circles of cardstock and then petite scallop circles from the spotty paper. These were mounted using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used the butterfly stamp from the Collage Curious set and the Raspberry Ripple stamp pad on cardstock and then puched out using the Scallop Circle Punch. This has also been mounted on Stampin’ Dimensionals and tucked a couple of paper strips underneath. I did make some paper bows but they just didn’t look right.



So I managed to work with what I had and feel quite pleased with myself for doing so. However, the other “me” is now hankering after a load of new stash from the In Colour Collection – especially loving the look of those Dahlias.
