Perfect Pennants CCMC286

Today's challenge from Create with Connie and Mary is a pretty color challenge:  Island Indigo, Smokey Slate and Perfect Plum (which I haven't used in awhile!  Time to put it to work!)  I have some new products from the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catties that I can't wait to use and I think they'll work perfectly for this challenge!



The Decorative Dots embossing folder is a Sale-A-Bration bonus item; you'll really like it, I do!  The "you & me" is heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  The arrow and photo frame are diecut with framelits from the new On Film Framelits set.  (These photo frames are currently so trendy in the papercrafting world! So glad SU offers them!)



I cut Whisper White cardstock with the new Spiral Flower Die, sponged it somewhat with Perfect Plum ink on both the inside and outside edges then rolled it starting at the narrow end.  You can see a Stampin' Up!-produced video on YouTube showing how to make these lovely flowers!  I added a clear Rhinestone down inside the center.  Another new product I love is the Silver Baker's Twine...  that little bit sparkle in it adds so much!  (It also comes in Gold!)   I folded some Island Indigo cardstock and hand cut some leaves to finish the flower.

Stamps:  Perfect Pennants set
Ink:  VersaMark, Perfect Plum
Paper:  Watercolor Wonder DSP; Smokey Slate Co-ordinations cardstock; Brushed Silver Cardstock, Silver Glimmer Paper, Perfect Plum, Island Indigo and Whisper White cardstocks
Accessories:  Big Shot, Hearts a Flutter Framelits (heart), On Film Framelits (arrow, photo frame), Spiral Flower Die; Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Sanding Tool, Silver Baker's Twine, Paper Snips, Stampin' Sponge, Rhinestone.


Here again are the colors for the challenge this week from Create with Connie and Mary:
