It’s another  Create with Connie & Mary color challenge – this week the colors were Midnight Muse, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.  That made me decide for sure that I prefer sketch challenges – what in the world was I going to do with those colors?

2012 Create Thursday-014

I did some quick browsing in a crafting magazine and saw a sketch in there that I thought I could use with the new Pretty Petites stamp set that will be available during Sale-A-Bration.  So I combined that idea with the color challenge and came up with this cute little card for this weeks challenge –


In the end I liked the colors together and this little creation.  It is actually a 3×3 card and here is a quick look at how I made it.

  • card base is Midnight Muse
  • I stamped 8 of the mini curly label images from the Pretty petites stamp set in Midnight Muse ink on Whisper White card stock, and punched them all out with the Petite Curly Label punch, arrange those on the front of the card
  • stamp 1 of the hello image in Midnight Muse ink on Pink Pirouette card stock and punch out – add it with a Stampin’ Dimensional to the lower right corner of the card front
  • Punch 8 of the Bitty Flowers using the punch from the Itty Bitty Punch pack – those are Pink Pirouette – scrunch them up and add to the center of each curly label.
  • Put a Rhinestone in the center of each flower
  • Tie some Whisper White Baker’s twine around the card front and tie in a bow.

In the end I liked the card, the colors and how it all turned out.  Substitute one of the other images to make it a thank you, birthday, or other occasion card.   Visit the Create with Connie & Mary site to see the creations from the rest of the design team and to submit your own creation for this new challenge.  Have a great week!  I’m at the Stampin’ Up!
