The inspirational colors of the day are Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White! I LOVE these colors so I couldn’t wait to get started. I wanted to use one the “New” stamp sets from the 2011 – 2012 Idea Book and Catalog and use it for this challenge.
Here’s a sneak peek of the “NEW” Stampin Up My Friend Stamp Set. So pretty!!! I really liked the Hello and the swirl it had so I decided I was going to go with swirls and circles.
The base layer of this card is Chocolate Chip Card Stock. It has been sized to 4 -1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Next, is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Bashful Blue and then 3-3/4″ x 5″ Whisper White. I used the Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip Stamp Pad to stamp several Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip circles. I wanted to added a bit more depth and layers so I decided to use the same circle stamp and stamp Bashful Blue circle on Bashful Blue Card Stock. Then I used Chocolate chip and stamped the circles on the Bashful Blue Card Stock. Using various sized circle punches I started punching and layering.
Yes, the “HELLO” is cut out. However, it really wasn’t too bad. Just remember you do not have to cut really close to the letters. Leave a bit of white space. It’s being popped on white paper so you can’t even tell. The button may be Marina Mist not sure. It’s supposed to be Bashful Blue but I couldn’t find a Bashful Blue button so I added what I had.
I really enjoy participating in these color challenges and am thinking about starting my own Color Challenge. I will be looking for a design team! If your interested and you have a blog to feature your project let me know.
