Hi everyone – I think that last week was gone before a blink of an eye, well for me it went so fast.
And here we are Sunday with a new challenge at Come and Get It and this week it is a colour challenge:
Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Pool Party
Are you up for the challenge ? I hope that you are - here is the link the post and you can see what the other Design Team members have created.
The idea for the layout of my card was inspired by the current sketch layout at Clean and Simple. I have changed the layout a little and you can see the layout below:
Our CAGI challenge this week is sponsored by Fred She Said and I have created my card using the Pattern Frame & Flourish set which is designed to be used with the Top Note Die.
I have printed the images on Whisper White cardstock and cut out a Pool Party Top Note Die shape with the Big Shot. I then cut it in half.
The patterned frame has flourish/swirl as part of it and I have taken the printed flourish/swirl and paper pieced it on half of the Top Note Die Shape.
I used embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock using the Elegant Lines Textured Embossing Folder and layered this on to the base cardstock Calypso Coral.
The flower which is part of the Pattern Frame and Flourish set was cut out, so that I had three larger petals and a smaller centre of the flower.
A lovely friend gave me so good advice last week about adding colour with a sponge. So this week I sponged Calypso Coral on the bottom flower layer, Daffodil Delight in the centre of the middle flower layer and Calypso Coral on the edges. The last layer the centre of the flower was sponged with Daffodil Delight. The flower was put together using the Dimensionals with some ‘bling’ in the centre of the flower.
I used some scrap Daffodil Delight to create the swirls using the Swirls Scribbles Sizzlits Die. I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set on scrap Whisper White card stock in Calypso Coral ink and then added some more rhinestones.
Here is the final result…
Stamp set: Happiest Birthday Wishes, Fred She Said Pattern Frame & Flourish
Card: Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Whisper White
Ink: Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Swirls Scribbles Sizzlits Die, Top Note Die, Elegant Lines, Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive
At first I was not sure if I was going to be able to make the colours work together but I am happy with the end result. This is another reason I love participating in challenges as they continue to inspire me create things a little different.
