You're Amazing! CCMC298

Ah, we have a lovely combination of colors this week for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge this week:  Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Gumball Green!  All fresh, bright, cheerful.. all good!

The focal stamp on my card is from the "You're Amazing" set, which I really like but have under-used;  I thought it would work well for this card.  I inked the stamp border with the Gumball Green Marker and the words with Tangerine Tango then die-cut it with the largest Framelit in the Apothecary Accents set.  I pierced around the edge, then inked and stamped the "amazing" again, filling in the open spaces in the letters with the Daffodil Delight Marker.  Then it was cut out, ends rounded with a circle punch and adhered it with Dimensionals.

I die-cut just the ends of the Framelit again using Tangerine Tango and adhered that underneath the white to emphasize the shape.  A 5.25" x 4" layer of Whisper White cardstock was dry embossed with the Scallops Embossing Folder and adhered with Dimensionals to the front of a 5.5" x 4.25" card. 

The larger flowers were stamped with Daffodil Delight on Whisper White then punched out with the coordinating Petals Punch.  The smaller flowers are punched with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.. love it!  It's one of my go-to tools!  The leaves are punched from Gumball Green.  (I'm going to miss this color when it retires in May!!)  The flowers and leaves were adhered with Glue Dots.

Stamps:  You're Amazing, Petite Petals
Inks:  Gumball Green, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango Markers; Daffodil Delight pad
Paper:  Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight cardstocks
Accessories:  Apothecary Accents Framelits, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Paper Piercing Pack Essentials, Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Scallop TIEF, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Blender Pen, Snail Adhesive, Basic Pearls (colored with Sharpie Marker)

Isn't this a fun color combination?  We (the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team) would love to see what you would do with this color combo, so how about jumping in and trying this one this week?!  Just post it online then link it up at Create with Connie and Mary website.  (Stampin' Up! supplies only)

Details, details! Wow! I love all the texture, the 3D flowers, the little orange pearls, the paper piercing. This is a stunner!

Very pretty, Margaret!

Gorgeous!!! I love everything about your card. The flowers are perfection and I love the embossed background. Just amazing!

Lisa Young said...

Absolutely beautiful! Those flowers look real and I love how you created the sentiment. I never would have thought to use the daffodil delight marker over tangerine tango ink. It really pops.

Great use of white on this card Margaret - it lets the colour and detail really shine. I too will miss Gumball Green when it retires - I love this colour!

Connie said...

GORGEOUS use of white space, Margaret! I love the details on the flowers, too! Wonderful job with the challenge this week!
