Blushingly Beautiful (CCMC183)


Time for a new Create with Connie and Mary challenge! This time it’s all about the colour, baby! I love all of these shade individually and was super excited to play with them all together.


The base is Pool Party and I used my Adorning Accents Edgelits to cut a piece of Soft Suede (which I also sponged) which I added along the bottom.


Next, I took a piece of Twitterpated Designer Series Paper and ruffled and the sewed it in my sewing machine. I just love this look. But before I adhered it, I used my Adorning Accents embossing folder (the heart on) to emboss a strip on the card. I wanted it to be de-bossed so I used the back side. Over this I stamped my sentiment from Curly and Cute.



For the focal panel, I stamped an image from Button Buddies using my Stampin’ Write markers and added some Twitterpated designer buttons but instead of tying them on, I added some Rhinestones to the centre of each one. For that fun bottom and top edge, I put the piece of card stock into my Decorative Label punch. And the in behind, I added a Blushing Bride Decorative label for an extra pop of colour.


To finish, it all off, I added a wee loop of ribbon affixed using Vintage Trinkets.


This is a great colour combo that is a blast to play around with. Won’t you join us at Create with Connie and Mary? And another great reason to play along….
