SIP Challenge 3 – Colors

After a fabulous weekend today was a pretty low key day. I had to drive out to Middle Island for work with my friend Marissa to go and help out with the implementation that I’m doing. We were out of the office from 11:30 to 3:30. It’s an hour each way. It definitely broke up the day and I enjoy spending time with Marissa, she’s a lot of fun! After work I came home and puttered around in the Stampin’ Galley and Skyped with Andrea. I did go and meet Heather to watch her boyfriend play softball, just an excuse to take a ride in the convertible!┬áNot a bad way to end the night! ­čÖé

It’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge! This time around we have a fun color combination for you…

SIP Color Challenge 3

This is definitely one of my favorite color combos! The base of the card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I cut out a piece of Smoky Slate with the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and then used the Impression Obsession Square Cutout Border Die down the right side. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam, SNAIL and Foam Tape. The flowers are from the Simon Says Stamp Flowers on My Mind Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Real Red, with the middles in Smoky Slate, and cut out with the coordinating 2 Flowers and 2 Leaves Dies. A piece of Bermuda Bay is cut out with another die from the Stitched Bundle of Shapes and adhered to the card with more Fun Foam. I adhered the flowers to the banner with SNAIL and Foam Tape. The stamped greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Sending and Wishing Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Real Red on White and adhered to the banner with some more Foam Tape. Some more Bermuda Bay is cut out three times with the the Simon Says Stamp Wishing Die, they are adhered to each other and the card with 2-Way Glue. Finally some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are adhered with Crystal Effects and complete the card. I love the nice pop of the red against the Bermuda Bay and the subtle Smoky Slate background! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper color challenge!
