Hexagons and Butterflies- A Wonderful Color Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers! 

I hope you are having a great weekend so far!  As soon as I saw the fabulous CCMC262 colors from this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge   I decided to stay up late again (or early depending on your point of view) to create one more card. 

Again, if you have not done so yet, please take a moment to stop by and check them out!

As I studied this color combo, I knew that I had the perfect background image already printed and ready to go from My Digital Studio (MDS) so I pulled out my scraps to finish off the card.  
  
To create this card:


Print the images from MDS using the Six-Sided Hexagon Brush stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock (I resized and positioned the hexagons to create a piece of my own Designer Series Paper).  I fussy cut around the images and adhered them to a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock embossed with the Argyle Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.

Add a piece of 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon across the lower part of the card and adhere the flower (created from Whisper White, Bermuda Bay and Basic Black cardstock previously embossed with the now retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).

Add the sentiment from MDS using the Watercolor Trio Stamp Brush Set onto Whisper White cardstock- punch out with the Large Oval Punch.  Punch two additional Basic Black ovals with the same punch and layer together to leave a bit of the cardstock show behind the sentiment.

Stamp the butterflies using Basic Black Classic Ink and punch out with their corresponding punch- adhere using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Add the Pearls to the ribbon and the butterflies to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Papillon Potpourri, Six-Sided Hexagon (MDS), Watercolor Trio (MDS)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Basic Black Classic Ink

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Argyle and (retired) Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Punches- Fancy Flower, Pansy, 1 ¼” Scallop Circle, Large Oval, Elegant Butterfly, Bitty Butterfly;  Pearls


Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a blessed Sunday!!
