Hi friends! Happy Tuesday and top of the morning to you! A new ‘Colors and a Letter’ challenge has started today over at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge and our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps so be sure to come on over and play! You know you love some Bugaboo! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! For this challenge, we are to feature something ‘beginning with the letter C’ in our project. I created a thank you card featuring Bugaboo’s adorable Chibi Cupcake Peeker from my stash. Isn’t she the cutest little thing ever?!
And for the ‘Colors and a Letter’ challenge, we are to use the colors in this graphic:
I printed the digital image on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers, cut it with a dotted rectangle die, and then layered it on a slightly larger dotted rectangle cut from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Tangy Orange. I set this piece aside to work on the card base. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and then cut a Jillibean Soup aqua star panel to cover the front of the card base. Several weeks ago I used the Concord and 9th Gingham Background stamp set and stamped several panels in different colors and they were out on my desk so I grabbed the yellow one and cut a stitched flag, trimming off the bottom and the top to use later on. I had a solid yellow flag and flag frame already cut from CutCardStock Astrobright Solar Yellow cardstock in my extra die cut bin so I grabbed the flag frame and adhered it to the bottom portion of the card front. I adhered the layered image to the card base so that the top 1/4″ or so protruded above the top edge of the card base which I thought was a fun and unique touch. I adhered the bottom and top portions of the stitched flag (that I trimmed off earlier) to the bottom and top edges of the image over top of the orange die cut. Next up was adding the layered sentiment from Prickley Pear Stamps that I cut from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Black Licorice and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock. Then the final touch was adding some orange enamel dots and some tiny yellow gemstones.
I printed the MyScrapChick digital sentiment on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and trimmed it with the sentiment centered, leaving room to embellish the panel with leftover strips of the stamped gingham and Jillian Bean soup papers. I layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green and adhered it to the inside of the card base.
And one more look… totally loving how this turned out with all the colors in the graphic! What a fun challenge and totally adorable image!
