Happy Friday everyone! I loves me some Friday! A friend of mine had back surgery yesterday so I’m off to the city tonight to pay him a visit. I have a busy weekend ahead of me too. My future Sister-in-law’s Bridal Shower is Saturday and I have another party on Sunday. I also have a ton of crafting to get done, but that’s the best part! πŸ™‚

Today’s post is for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have a color challenge…

Two new In-Colors and a good old standard. The base of my card is Midnight Muse Card Stock. I added a piece of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper for the background. It’s a great example of how holiday paper can be used for other things too. The main panel is a piece of Very Vanilla that I paper-pierced using the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool and then flagged the bottom. I stamped the stems from the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set in Gumball Green and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The jar, also from the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set is stamped in Midnight Muse on Vellum Card Stock and cut out with the Cannery Framelits Dies. I used my Heat Tool to speed up the ink drying on the Vellum. The two daisies are created using the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. I punched four pieces out of Daffodil Delight and then used my Paper Snips to cut down each scallop leaving about 3/8″ in the middle. I adhered two together with Mini Glue Dots and adhered a Brights Collection Designer Button in the middle with another Mini Glue Dot. The leaves are cut out using the 1″ Circle Punch and are adhered with more Mini Glue Dots. I fanned up the petals and attached them to the card. The greeting is from the Friendship Preserves Stamp Set and I stamped it twice, once in Midnight Muse and the other in Gumball Green. I cut them out with the Window Frames Framelits Dies and snipped off the top and bottom of the Midnight Muse one. They are adhered to each other with Stampin’ Dimensionals and also to the card. Don’t forget that the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set and the Cannery Framelits Dies and the Friendship Preserves and the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies are both available as bundles with a 15% savings. I love the color combination and the use of Vellum for the jar. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge card. Thank you very much for visiting and if you have any questions let me know. Have a great day! πŸ™‚
