INKredible Color Challenge 9/15

Bella's Bloom provided the flowers and Bella's Blossom provided the sentiment. And I threw in a little Sprinkles for the background. I also did a little Faux Tiling on that background layer and added faux brads in the corner.

The colors used this week were Always Artichoke, Creamy Caramel, and Regal Rose. I stamped the flower images on Whisper White and then used the key tag punch. The problem I see now is that they remind me of something - I won't say what, but Rachel agreed with me. So I definitely won't be using this as a sympathy card. What do you think?

I had some scraps left so I decided to make a bookmark. I used the same flower from the Bella's Bloom set and punched it out with the new Jumbo Oval Punch. Then I used the coluzzle oval template to get the Regal Rose layer. I Faux Tiled the Artichoke background on this too.

Each school year I try to come up with something to put in the staff mailboxes for their birthdays and I think I'm going to do bookmarks this year. Our first birthday will be coming up this week so I will be prepared for that. You can't see too well from the picture, but the corners were punched with the corner rounder punch. I didn't want it to be lumpy so I didn't add any ribbon (this time). I might add some at the top in the future.

This will work well for the female staff - now I have to come up with something for the males.

I spent the afternoon Saturday at my Upline Debbie's house playing with the new Big Shot. We did some cute little projects which I'll post later this week. I know you're going to love seeing them!


  1. Funny you should mention about not using this as a sympathy card. LOL I see where you're going with that. It is very beautiful just the same. The colors you've chosen work great together and the layout is wonderful. It's a very happy card.

  2. Very nicely done. I especially like the faux tile...we did that at our last TT.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
