Yippee Skippee

Yippee-SkippeeHave you missed me?  Can you believe I only posted TWO things this week?  Sorry about that!  I’ve been busy working on my projects for Create with Connie and Mary Fall Collection.  Oh my…I got three done (one is the Preview that everyone will get to see) and then two others.  I have to say I LOVE ’em!  Click here to learn more about Create with Connie and Mary Fall Collection.

Okay…so I NEEDED to make something to post on my blog and I was looking at some of my very favorite inspiration sites.  What did I find?  Well I found this WONDERFUL color challenge on colourq and then found the inspiration to use buttons from CAS-ual Friday challenge.  So…you put these two together and this is what I came up with!

cqc201The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting using Night of Navy and Calypso Coral.  Next I cut strips of cardstock in Calypso Coral, Soft Sky, an Basic Grey, round just the end of each, attached a coordinating button using White Baker’s Twine and added to the panel.  To finish it off I added the panel to the card base using dimensionals.

I was going to add some more ‘stuff’ to this like some rhinestones but talked myself out of this.  I think like this it could be used to different age groups!

Set(s): Yippee Skippee
Paper: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Soft Sky, Basic Grey
Ink: Night of Navy, Calypso Coral
Other: 1″ Circle Punch, Subtles Buttons, Neutral Buttons, Dimensionals
