Yikes, it's been a long time since I posted. But I'm back with a few things to share this week. It's Monday, so it's my favorite challenge day on Splitcoast. The Clean and Simple Challenge today was to use the colors pink, blue, green and chocolate. I had hoped to make a Halloween card, but that wasn't happening with these colors.
Instead I made a card using punches. The sentiment was the only stamp I used.
I love the idea of using the Ornament punch as a vase, but it certainly didn't come from me. I've seen quite a few people use it on Splitcoast, so I don't know who to give credit to for the original idea.
As you can see, I embossed the Bashful Blue c/stock before I punched it out. The right side and bottom of the vase are sponged with Bashful Blue ink and I swiped a little across the vase to make the embossing stand out.
The flowers were made with the 5-petal punch and the Halloween paper from the new mini catalog called Night & Day. I sponged the petals with Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose ink and curled them with my bone folder. Their chocolate chip centers are 5/16" neutral jumbo brads.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
