After that last post and making you think you're eyesight is failing, I though I owed you something else.
Today's color challenge on SCS was to use Peach Parfait, Early Espresso & Cajun Craze. We could use rick rack for dessert, but I still don't have any. I'm also going to send it over to SU Only Challenges to use punch art.
I hadn't played with my Extra Large 2-Step Bird Punch lately and I had recently received the Punch Potpourri Hostess Level 1 stamp set. These colors worked perfectly with the stamp and punch.
I stamped the bird on Peach Parfait with Cajun Craze. They make a beautiful contrast! I used the filigree from the Vintage Vogue set to stamp Cajun on Peach and punched the wings. The nest is punched from Early Espresso.
I had a piece of Very Vanilla that had been embossed with the BIG GUY and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I used that to determine the size. That piece is 3 3/8" square. The mat is Peach Parfait and it's 3 1/2" square. The final mat is Early Espresso and it's 3 5/8" square. All of that is on a Very Vanilla 4 1/4" square card.
I'll add a sentiment when I decide what to use it for. I think something from Teeny, Tiny Wishes or Short & Sweet punched with the Word Window punch will work well, don't you?
Stamps: Punch Potpourri, Vintage Vogue
Ink: Cajun Craze
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Peach Parfait
Accessories: Extra Large 2-step Bird Punch, Big Shot, Square Lattice EF, Basic Pearl
Colleen Dietrich made this card that inspired me to make a nest out of the branch punch. While you're there, take a look at her blog. You'll find lots of inspiration!
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you have found some inspiration here.
Bonnie, I like this card better than my "I Know Why The CASE'd Bird Sings", which is very similar to this. What I like better is the embossed background, the square size, and those autumn colors are gorgeous! Oh, and the bird's stamped images. Super job!
this is beautiful bonnie-love how you used the colors in the scs challenge-and a great submit for the suo challenge
Super cute and great use of the challenge colors! I LOVE the word window for squeezing in sentiments :)
Bonnie, thank you for the credit!
I'm feeling a CASE coming on for your recent baby card. I even pulled out the For A Friend set already!! You come up with the neatest stuff.
Love this card, and since I have the punch, I'm going to try it soon myself. It's just so tweet:)
This is very pretty. I love the stamped pattern on the bird!
This is really cute. I love the lattice background behind the bird. Thanks for playing along at SUO challenge!
I love this little card, Bonnie. You're right; the Cajun Craze stamped on Peach Parfait card looks amazing!
