You may comment on all 4 posts for this month (July 2010). I want to make someone a lucky winner on August 1st!
I can not think of a prettier color than today’s choice Bashful Blue. It brings a calm and soothing feel. I think of breezy summer skies, babies, water and even icy winters with this blue. It pairs so well with many other colors but I just love the Creative Combination on this Color Coach card! The card below will be sent to the winner of July’s Color Coach Give-Away.
For this card I used Rose Red plain card stock for the card base. Cut card stock at 5″ x 10″ (score and fold at 5″). The mats are Wild Wasabi and Bashful Blue. The sentiment image has been stamped onto Whisper White with Rose Red Classic Ink.
After you stamp the fun Itty Bitty Bits images onto Whisper White, use the punches from the matching Shapes Pack of punches.
The new Jewels-Basic Pearl by Stampin’ Up! work perfectly on this design. I used a larger size for the middle flower row and the smaller size for the top and bottom rows. The jewels come with a mini dot of glue on the back of each individual pearl. Pretty cool! No need for your own adhesive. Use tweezers to center each pearl, press to secure and your done!
