Color Inspiration #107
I had a big 'ol box of stamping goodies delivered this week. Oh, how I love brand new stuff!!!! LOL!!!
I used a bunch of my new goodies to make this week's color challenge card.
It all started with the pumpkin pie patterned paper. It comes from the Welcome Neighbor 6x6 patterned paper pack that's one of the Sale-a-bration choices this year.
I then grabbed some fun colors to go with it: Bermuda Bay, Close to Cocoa and Apricot Appeal.
I ran the Bermuda Bay base card through the Big Shot with the new Polka Dot Impressions folder.
I added a 2" x 4 1/4" strip of Apricot Appeal on the fold.
The next layer is the Pumpkin Pie patterned paper. It's matted on a 1/8" larger piece of Whisper White cardstock.
I then worked on the focal image. I used the Sale-a-bration set called Good Neighbors. I highly recommend using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for this set (even if you own Clear Mount). My roof isn't sitting exactly on top of the house........oh well, live and learn. The house is inked in Bermuda Bay ink. I used a cotton swab to remove the color from the door. I colored the door with my Close to Cocoa marker and stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the trees in Old Olive and the clouds in Bashful Blue. I then sponged some sky and grass.
Now, it was onto the punches. I used the Scallop Trim border and corner punches to create the frame.
The final touch was some narrow Whisper White grosgrain ribbon.
Are you ready to take the color challenge? I hope so!!!! If you do, be sure to leave a comment on this post with a link to your project.
Until next time....Happy Stamping everyone!!!
