Week 83 Colour

September already, we blinked and missed our summer in the UK.
Being the first of the month it's colour week and we have chosen two for you....

Brown & Pink

We are lucky enough to have two sponsors again this month
A regular and a new company.
We are most appreciative of them both.

The Freckled Fawn, think we are right in saying, specialise in the fabulous Washi Tape.
 Do go and check them out, there's lots of goodies to explore.
They are offering a super prize for our winner for the month of September
Mary and Andrea at The Ribbon Girl are sponsoring again this month. They update their site with new goodies constantly, again do pop along and have a nosey, you won't be disappointed.


Stampin Up Chocolate Chip card to make a 6" square card The holes are a die from Simon Says Bright pink card from stash, stuck to the inside of the back of the card to show through the holes. Flower die also Simon Says I cut the flower heads twice more  in pink and shaped them with my fingers Sentiment computer generated Liorah font

Chocolate Pink Petticoat design papers printed onto baby pink card Top panel embossed with Swiss Dots.
Dimensions are 15cm [6"] square the cake panels are 5 cm deep, then 9, 7.5 and 6cm wide. 

I have used my fairly new Stampin' Up Bright Blossoms stamp set for this card, coloured with Stampin' Up markers in Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede and Pixie Pink. I also used the markers to colour the edges of the square mounts to tone in with the images. I popped the front vase onto 3D pads to give a little relief. Two of the flowers and the butterfly were gently twinkled with glamour Dust. The background embossing is from a Sizzix border folder. The sentiment is also Stampin' Up.

I stamped the WOW background stamp in Soft Suede and used it for the Embosslits butterflies and the base layer of the rectangle. The pink layer is embossed with a Stampin Up folder. A few pearls and a sentiment from Art Impressions and it was done.
I did one other card, but it was SO like Mandi's that I have put it on my personal blog... we do think alike so often, young Mandi and me!

We haven't often had a combination of colours and we hope that you enjoy working with this pairing.We'll look forward to seeing what you produce. We know that you inspire each other... and us too.
Have fun!
