Create with Connie and Mary 252

Yeah! It’s Friday! My favorite day of the week, work will done soon and it will be the weekend! So, last night I went to see Star Trek: Into the Darkness in IMAX 3D and it was amazing! I loved it. It was action packed, funny and sad. Not things that you would necessarily expect from a Star Trek movie. I may even go and see it again! The weather here today was a little muggy in the morning but then it turned into a nice sunny day. This weekend I will be heading out to the Hampton’s with my friend Chantal so that should be fun.

Today’s post – Create with Connie and Mary 252, colors…

CCMC 252

Some nice soft colors and I kept my card nice and clean too. The base of the card is Soft Suede Card Stock. I used a piece of the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and the Artisan Label Punch* to punch out a piece from the middle. I stamped one of the stamps from Label Love in Sahara Sand on Very Vanilla and adhered it to the base. The DSP is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two pieces of Sahara Sand are flagged and adhered to either side of the label. The butterfly is from the Best of 25 Butterflies Stamp Set and the greeting is from the A Round Array Stamp Set. I really enjoyed the color combination and the negative punch is fun too! I Thanks for visiting me today to see my Create with Connie and Mary card for this week’s color challenge. Have a great Friday!

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set! It’s called Designer Typeset! The great thing about Photopolymer Stamps is that they are completely clear so you can see exactly where you are going to stamp. They work amazingly with our new Firm Foam Stampin’ Pads for great ink coverage. You are going to love them! This is a limited release so make sure you get one before it’s gone!
