Retired Soon- Color Challenge with an Old Friend
Hi Again Stampers!
I wanted to create a card using one of the soon to be retired stamp sets and In-Colors and this week's CCMC197 Create with Connieand Mary Color Challenge was perfect! If you have not done so already, check out the Design Team samples as well as the other entries- gorgeous!
Friends Never Fade will only be available until the end of May and I love the floral scroll and sentiment on the main floral stamp (fyi-Concord Crush will also be retiring along with the In-Colors for 2010-2012).
This card is fairly simple and combines quite a few techniques- heat embossing, dry embossing, crimping, rolled flowers and of course, pearls :-) I will have to come back and post more details tomorrow since it is so late…
Cardstock: Crushed Concord, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark™, Concord Crush
Accessories: Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder- Snow Burst and Perfect Polka Dot, Designer Frame (rectangular), Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder, 1 3/8” and 1 ¾” Circle Punches, Crimper Tool, Pearls
Thanks again for visiting! I hope you like this card and if you have the time let me know- will you be sad to see Friends Never Fade retire?
Have a great week stamping- God Bless!
