Six Sided Sampler CCMC260

Time for the Thursday Challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!  Today we have a color challenge featuring the lovely combo of Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Pistachio Pudding!


I used Pistachio Pudding for the card base then a layer of Calypso Coral.  Next a panel of Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF).


Using six of the hexagon stamps in the Six Sided Sampler set, I stamped two of each color and punched them out with the Hexagon Punch.  (I really like how these colors look together!)  I arranged them and adhered each with a Dimensional.


Next I die cut in Whisper White three of the daisy-looking flower on the Originals Blossom Party Die and centered them with white clay small flowers made with the Simply Pressed Clay and Mold, then attached them with Glue Dots.


For the greeting, I stamped the "my friend" from the set with Calypso Coral, punched it out then trimmed it down to about 1/2" and adhered it with Dimensionals.  I felt it looked so clean than I didn't add anything else; I decided I liked it just as is.  I did have to stop myself from adding something though!  lol!

This Six Sided Sampler set has eleven stamps in it!  It's really fun to create with, and the Hexagon Punch, as you can see, punches it out with an approximately 1/8" border all around for a very finished look!  I love this bundle and look forward to using it for many projects!


Here again is the color combination that is the challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary!  Why don't you join us?  See the guidelines on their website then make a card using these colors; upload it to a public place on the web (blog, SCS, etc.) then go back to CWCM and link it there.   Be sure to check out the cards that the other challenge team members have made... they are such talented artists!

Thanks for visiting.  Hope you enjoyed and will come back soon!
