Hooray for Today! CMC308

We have lots going on today!!  Create with Connie and Mary are introducing their new Summer Collection 2014 with a Blog Hop!  This Saturday, 6-21-14, is the last day to get the Early Bird Discount of $5 also!  You may have just arrived from the very talented Natasha Zandbergen's blog. We also have a fun color challenge for CCMC308, so get your beverage and ride around with us to see all the projects from the talented team of designers!  Our challenge colors,  Real Red, Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay are the stars and they just LOOK like colors for a celebration, don't they!

 Here we go!

This Geometrical set has some great sentiments including this "Hooray for today" which could be used for SO many occasions such as birthday, graduation and celebrating any accomplishment!  I hand-inked the stamp with markers in our challenge colors, stamped on Whisper White, then layered it onto a Crushed Curry background diecut with the a framelit from the Apothecary Accents collection.

The card base is Bermuda Bay, cut 4-1/4" x 11" and folded in half then overlaid with Whisper White embossed with the Arrows TIEF (embossing folder).  After adding banners of Designer Paper from the Brights and Regals Paper Stacks, I used embellishments of stars punched with the Star Punch from the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Rhinestones and Basic Metal Buttons tied off with White Baker's Twine.

Stamps:  Geometrical
Inks:  Real Red, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers
Paper:  Bermuda Bay, Real Red DSP from Brights Paper Stack; Crushed Curry from Regals Paper Stack.  Whisper White, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry cardstock.
