Miss Ewe Playful Pals

by Joanne James12. May 2016 08:05

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


This colour combination was rather a challenge this week - all neutrals and not a 'colour' to be seen! After much pondering, I decided to create something fun with my Playful Pals stamp set:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Baa Baa White Sheep - My sheep is courtesy of the the Playful Pals stamp set: I stamped his wool in Versamark and heat embossed in white, which adds a subtle texture and shine against the Crumb Cake background, before stamping his face separately onto Smoky Slate cardstock and popping it onto a dimensional.

Alphabet Rotary Stamp For a Play on Words I couldn't resist a punny sentiment for the front of my card and the Alphabet Rotary Stamp is the perfect tool for this. I will sure miss this stamp, which is so useful when you need to customise your message. 

Neutral Embellishments - I decided to use the Basic Grey as my accent colour to bring some definition to my card and added a small strip of designer series paper from the Neutrals DSP stack, along with some linen thread and a silver metallic button to the bottom of my central panel.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

This card is headed to the lovely Gail who is currently on sabatical and we missed at our technique class this week, with love and best wishes from myself and the other ladies that were present. 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'!
