I was a little stumped on the new color challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary:

After lots and lots of talking to myself (do you do that too?), I decided to go with Clean & Simple with lots of White Space:

I cut the stamped layer using the Banners Framelits Dies with Whisper White Cardstock and got myself to work stamping:

I used the Happy Watercolor stamp set and added the background images first using Summer Starfruit and Pistachio Pudding Inks. I then added the dots and flower image using StazOn Jet Black Ink. I used a Blender Pen and the ink from the Summer Starfruit Ink Pad to fill in my flowers and then finished them off by adding Pearl Jewels.

The card base measures 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/3". The 2nd layer measures 5 1/4" X 4" and is embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Chalk Talk Framelits Dies and the coordinating Chalk Talk stamp set. All of my layers are glued in place using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White
  • Inks: Summer Starfruit, Pistachio Pudding, StazOn Jet Black
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels, Summer Starfruit Ribbon
  • Stamps: Chalk Talk, Happy Watercolor
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Banners Framelits Dies, Chalk Talk Framelits Dies, Stampin' Dimensionals, Blender Pen
