Pop of Paradise

CCMC408Well can you believe it…it’s another Thursday and so it’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  Last week I used my new set, Pop of Paradise, and had such fun with it, I thought I’d use it again for a totally different look!  The color challenge is Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Mint Macaron.  I like the soft colors on this…a TOTALLY different look from last week.

Here’s the details…

  • Mint Macaron – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 5 x 3 3/4 layer onto Smoky Slate – 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 add to card front.
  • Blushing Bride – 1/4 x 5, add to card front
  • So Saffron – cut out using oval, then cut using Sunburst Thinlit, cut off a couple of the ‘rays’ then add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp leaves using Mint Macaron, cut out and add to card front.
  • Stamp flamingo using Blushing Bride, cut out add using dimensionals
  • Stamp banner using Basic Grey, cut out and add using dimensionals

This was one of those fun cards where really it is just about the stamping!

  1. I love this set so much and it looks amazing paired with the sunburst! I conjures up thoughts of sitting on a veranda in Florida sipping tea! The flamingo looks great in blushing bride too!

  2. Love the flamingo in this colourway Mary – you are showing the versatility of this set for sure! Great to see it against the sunburst too, this works so well.
