CCMC Color Challenge #258

Good Morning, Stampers!

A bright and cheery color challenge awaits you at Create with Connie and Mary today! Check out all of the creations by the talented designers and play along!




I immediately thought of the Polka Dot Pieces stamp set when I saw these colors! A perfect fit!

1.  I started by inking the Butterfly Collection stamp-around wheel with markers from the challenge colors. It was really easy to do since I converted the wheel to a clear-mount (see how HERE)! Stamp the image onto a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White cardstock.

2. Adhere that to a Night of Navy card base.

3. Adhere a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Vellum cardstock to the top of the card with a glue dot on each corner. 

4. Adhere a Melon Mambo Candy Dot on top of the Vellum to hide the glue dots.

5. Stamp the butterfly in Melon Mambo on Whisper White cardstock. Punch/cut.

6. Stamp the butterfly again in Daffodil Delight ink. Stamp onto Whisper White cardstock and cut. Adhere together.
7. Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Cut.

8. Stamp the large flower in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Punch with the 1 1/4" scallop circle punch.
9. Stamp the small flower in Daffodil Delight onto Whisper White cardstock. Cut and adhere to the large flower with Stampin' Dimensionals.
10. Ink the center of the large flower with Melon Mambo ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Punch with the Itty Bitty circle punch. Adhere to the flower with a Stampin' Dimensional.
11. Adhere all the pieces to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I convert my wheels, too! Love the vellum layer...I never think to use it! Great job with the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge!

Love your card Melissa! The velum layer is such a cool idea!

Deb said...

This is awesome! Love how the vellum mutes the background so that the focal point can shine! Brilliant!!

Lisa Young said...

The vellum really gives the card a softened look which I love. Wonderful combination of stamps too!

Love the way you used the vellum to soften the butterfly layer. Cute card.

Great idea to tone down the colors with Vellum Paper and I too unmount my wheels, I use them more this way!

Your vellum-covered background is such a great idea and so pretty! Really makes the focal images pop! Great ideas!
