Create with Connie and Mary 256

Good morning! Saturday, no work all play and the weather is supposed to be nice here today! Did you get all of your Father’s Day cards made? I, like always have projects to make this weekend and that makes me happy! LOL! I have been trying some more abstract and different styles lately and I’m really liking it. You’ll have to let me know what you think of today’s card which was inspired by one that I saw on Pinterest. Oh, and I’m experimenting with my photography too, your feedback is appreciated!

Today’s post – Create with Connie and Mary 256, colors…

What a fun color combination and conveniently they are all in the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. There is a strip of the Soho Subway DSP across the bottom and the panel on the right is backed by some Very Vanilla to make it a little more sturdy. I used a thin strip of Champagne Glimmer Paper on the piece across the bottom and also for some of the circles. The circles are punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, 1/2″ Circle Punch and 1″ Circle Punch. I stamped the Island Indigo ones with a stamp from the Notable Notions Stamp Set in Island Indigo. The circles are then randomly adhered, some with SNAIL and some with Stampin’ Dimensionals, on the panel on the right. For the greeting I used the Hello, Lovely Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso, and mounted to the panel with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Island Indigo and Early Espresso Candy Dots finish off the card. I LOVE the candy dots, I’m going to be going through a lot of them! I also like the Champagne Glimmer Paper with the color combo, I think it works quite nicely. Thank you for checking in with me today to see my Create with Connie and Mary color challenge card. I hope that you have a productive or relaxing Saturday! 🙂
