For today’s project I am playing along with the Global Design Project Color Challenge.  This one was a little more challenging for me.



And here is the Color Challenge:


I do love the color combination but had a bit of trouble coming up with a layout, etc.  I finally decided on showcasing the card stock.  I chose the Soft Seafoam as the main layer and embossed it with the Lace 3D Embossing Folder.  This is a folder that I rarely use, but love it here.

The flowers are from the Lovely You Stamp Set, as is the “Smile”.  I colored the flowers using my Stampin’ Write Markers.  I know they have been feeling underloved since the debut of the Stampin’ Blends.  However, I would never do away with them as they are the perfect thing for stamps you want to add more than one color to, like these flowers. Sadly the Markers are not available individually, with the exception of the Basic Black.  They are great to have on hand though and worth the investment of a color family at a time.

I stamped the set of flowers and die cut them using the Tasteful Labels Dies in the upcoming catalog.  The extra flower on the banner, also a Tasteful Labels Die, I fussy cut and added with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a touch of Wink Of Stella to the flower petals for a bit of shimmer.

To ground the sentiment shape, I used the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon in Whisper White.  It does not show a lot on the photo but it actually is a perfect compliment.  I also used the Sprig Punch to add some detail behind the image and to bring more of the Pretty Peacock to the front.

Thank you so much for stopping in today.  I really appreciate it.

Below are links to the two Retiring or Last Chance Lists.  Keep in mind, a Bundle may retire, but the stamp set and dies or punch can still carry over.  So look for the individual item.  Also, all of the Stampin’ Blends are not retiring.  It is only that in the new catalog, they will be sold in the combo pack only.  The only ones retiring are the 2018-2020 In Color ones.

You may also click on the Shop Now on my Menu bar and be taken to my online store.  There you can see all of the Retiring / Last Chance items as well as all other products.
