CCMC 326!

Good Morning Stampers! I'm so glad you stopped by today. We have a new challenge at Create with Connie & Mary. Love these colors we played with for this week:

And this is my card for this week's challenge:

The Partridge & Pears stamp set is so adorable. Here I decided to emboss the image using Silver Embossing Powder and my Heat Tool, and then add just a hit of color. The silver embossing does all the showing-off for me so I didn't need to add much for color:

I used my Ink Pads and a Blender Pen to add Mossy Meadow and  Lost Lagoon Inks. We have wonderful projects just like this during our Holiday Collections at Create with Connie & Mary! Are you lucky enough to have subscribed to view everything we have to offer? If not, it's not too late:

  1. I love that you kept the coloring simple -it really allows the colors to stand out against the silver embossing. Your card is so elegant and mailable with no extra postage. Yay!

  2. Love how you just spotlighted with color and love it cut with the Labels Framelits! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  3. This is a great way to use this image! Love how you colored parts of the image in! Pretty card!!

  4. Wow! I love this stamp embossed in silver!! You did an amazing job with this challenge!

  5. Your coloring is just beautiful! Love how you framed it with patterned DSP against the embossing. Such a pretty card!

  6. I really like that you colored the bird and the pears...brings them out and highlights them. That framelit shape is the perfect shape to compliment the tree.

  7. I love how you used the Silver embossing on the image... so shiny and pretty! Lovely coloring on your selected spaces to accent them; and love the layers too!
