Silhouettes & Script Sunny Day Card

by Joanne James21. January 2016 08:05

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have an interesting colour combination for you:

    

I struggled a little with this colour combo - having seen Lisa Martz, one of the other Design Team members, adorable chick card I couldn't see how to use these colours for anything else (does that ever happen to you when you see something that was in your mind's eye all along?!) Finally this week's sketch over at Retrosketches helped me out and I came up with this:

 

I used Lost Lagoon for my card base then covered this with a piece of the raindrop patterned paper from the Sale-A-Bration 'Wildflower Fields' designer series paper pack and a top layer of Whisper White, stamped with my 'hello' greeting in Memento Black. I added a bright red frame cut with my Big Shot and square framelits and a Hello Honey sun, also from the Silhouettes and Script' hostess stamp set, which I fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals. I added an epoxy heart, adhered to Real Red cardstock, as a little embellishment.

A super clean and simple card that brings these colours together in a slightly unconventional way; it might not be that chick, but I like it!

Do visit the other Design Team members to see what they did with this week's colours; there's lots of inspiration over on their blogs too!

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Adorable!  And yes, I want to make a card with these colors and all I can think of is polka dots, LOL!

Really cute!  Love the cute lithe frame around the sun!  I always forget about my square framelits and how fun these little frames can be!

You've inspired me to ink up this stamp now - better late than never! IThe DSP cut on an angle is what makes this so appealing, along with the colour combination.

Haha, Joanne. That was me exactly when I saw Lisa's chick card! I really like what you came up with too. The frame is a clever addition and I love the combination of the sun with the raindrop paper. You always inspire me!

This is so cute! I like your choice of DSP and the gorgeous little heart on your framed sun. Beautiful card!
