Color Inspiration and WIGW
Here is Kristina's Color Inspiration
for this week. I knew as soon as I saw this exactly what paper to use. I have had this in my supply for awhile now. It was really pretty perfect for this challenge. So here is my creation. I also have another one in the works. I will post that tomorrow.
But for now......
I used this paper by DCWV and cut a circle through both that and the top layer of my Whisper white card base with my CM cutting system. I then added a piece of Certainly Celery that was scalloped with my Scallop Edge punch. I used a set called So Many Scallops from last year's Salebration sets for the flower. I just stamped Tempting Turqouise craft ink onto the same color paper and punched out with the scallop punch. They go perfectly together. The center is a scrap piece of textured CS from DCWV that is punched out with my 1 1/4" circle punch. I then paper pierced it. The small center circle was made by stamping from the new set called Say It With Scallops. This is the featured stamp set for the Ronald Mc Donald House. With every purchase, $2 is donated to the RMH. It's a great set this year. I stamped with certainly celery onto certainly celery CS and then puched out with my 1/2" circle punch. This is mounted inside the card with dimensionals.
I then pierced a trail from the flower to the bee. The words and bee are from the set called JUST B. The little bee has dazzling diamonds on his wings and is mounted with dimensionals.
This is the inside of the card. I used the retired sets Quirky Alphabet and So Very to
complete my sentiment.
So now onto my WIGW project. I have to go to a meeting tomorrow and they are having an ornament exchange. So this is my contribution. I used some chipboard ornaments from SU that where available last year. You know, I always have such good intentions but never get around to it until much later. Yes, a year in this case.
But I did use the current Designer Paper called Ski Slope. This paper is sooo beautiful. I think I may have to order more. It is in the current Holiday mini. You should order some too:) Go check it out on the left side of my blog.
So I traced, cut and pasted the paper onto the chipboard and sponged the edges with Choc Chip and Baja Breeze ink. I then stamped in versamark onto the baja breeze a swirled stamp from Season of Joy. I stamped the sentiment with Choc Chip craft ink and clear embossed. Now the thing I learned is that it takes versamark a really long time to dry so some of the clear EP stuck to the swirls. The scalloped circle is also chipboard that was painted and then coverd in Versamark and embossed with Iridescent Ice EP. So sparkly....see.....
The sentiment is from the retired Star-Studded Season.
I did the same thing on the reverse side but the Chipboard Circle is covered with the Baja Breeze CS and lined with Liquid Glue and dazzling diamonds . I also used Choc Chip Taffetta Ribbon and a silver elastic cord. Kind of Blah on the ribbon but it will work. Ok that's all for me today. Check back tomorrow for another project and Color Inspiration card. See you soon:D
