Saffron Wishes CCMC372

Happy Thursday and welcome to our weekly challenge from Create with Connie and Mary!  This week's challenge  features the color combination of So Saffron, Delightful Dijon and Night of Navy!  So pretty together!

First I inked the clear block D with So Saffron ink direct from the pad then touched about 1/2" all around the edges with the Delightful Dijon pad. I used a Stampin' Sponge to slightly blend the inside edges of the Dijon ink on the block then lightly misted the block a couple of times to moisten it.  This was then stamped on white cardstock and the block lifted straight up.  It is always interesting to see the patterns created with this technique because they are always different.  I gently used the heat tool to "help" it dry so I could proceed soon.

I stamped the flowers silhouette then the greeting in Night of Navy.  The postmark was stamped in Delightful Dijon then punched out and added with a Dimensional.  This white panel was layered onto Night of Navy then onto a So Saffron card with Dimensionals.

I also stamped an envelope with what ink was left on the block and stamp, after lightly misting each.  I love the soft look that resulted.

Stamps:  Serene Silhouettes, Butterfly Basics (sentiment, postmark)
Inks:  So Saffron, Delightful Dijon, Night of Navy
Paper:  So Saffron, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Accessories:  3/4" Circle Punch, Clear Block "D", Stampin' Sponge

Here is the Color Challenge this week from Create with Connie and Mary:
This is such a great color scheme and can be used in sooo many different ways!  My mind kept thinking of other ideas for this combination once I began working with it!   We hope YOU will also jump in and also take the challenge this week, just for some creative fun!  Don't miss the cards from the other Challenge Team members at the Create with Connie and Mary website  for a range of styles using these challenge colors!

Happy Stamping!!

So sets like this get pushed aside in favor of new ones, but it really is a great set! Love your card, great job with the colors!

How lovely! Great effect from the stamp pad on your block...kind of swirly and looks like watercolor...neat! Love the silhouetted flowers stamped off on the edge leaving plenty of room for the greeting. Great card!

Your technique is wonderful, I'm glad that you shared it. I was wondering how you got your square so straight! Very pretty!

Lisa Young said...

My kind of card! I love how the background square has a look of streaming sunshine. Really lovely!

Joanne James said...

I love the sunny feel of this card Margaret - so well laid out, with the square offset against your silhouette flowers and a co-ordinating envelope to boot!

Jenny Engelke said...

I love the coordinating envelope to your beautiful card...I'm wondering to myself why I don't make matching envelopes more often! You've inspired me!!! Thanks!

Love this technique with the block! It makes a great backdrop for the greeting and the silhouette! Pretty card!
