Welcome back stampers! Today we have a great color challenge for you at Create with Connie & Mary! Just take a look for yourself:

I decided to leave a lot of white space on my card and make it "Clean & Simple":

I used the "Layered Labels" for my background and stamped using "VersaMark Ink" and sprinkled "Pool Party Embossing Powder". You can see how shiny the embossing powder is using the photo below:

It was so easy to stamp the flower image first on "So Saffron Cardstock" using "So Saffron Ink" and then stamping the sentiment directly over the flower with "Island Indigo Ink". I then cut the cardstock using my "Ovals Framelits Dies":

Make sure to visit the designers at Create with Connie & Mary today or anytime this week. I hope we designers give you some inspiration to come join us also!

  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Island Indigo, So Saffron

  1. What a great way to combine the 2 stamp sets! You created a beautiful card, Debbie and I love the embossing of the label. It really makes it stand out more and accentuates that particular stamp image. Great job!

  2. Debbie, I love the embossed Layered Label and the sheen and dimension it gives your card. Great combination of sets too; very pretty!

  3. Love the embossed flourish with the oval over it! That is such a great idea! And the double bow with the pearls are beautiful accents!

  4. Very elegant! Love the embossing.

    Ter ;)

  5. Love it! The embossed "frame" around the greeting is a fantastic touch! You and I were thinking alike with our "white space" this week!

  6. Absolutely beautiful!! I love the embossing...I need that Pool Party Embossing powder now!

  7. Lovely and elegant! I like the faint look of the flower on the sentiment!
