Totally Trees

ccmc428It’s that time again…time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week we have a cool color challenge.  This is one of my new current ‘favorites’:  Sweet Sugarplum, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz.  It really is an AWESOME color combo and works for so many different things.

I had this idea of what I wanted to do with the color combo and this set and it was one of the situations where it actually WORKED OUT!  WOO HOO!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pear Pizzazz print – 2 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 2 3/4 x 4, stamp tree using Basic Grey, ground using Pear Pizzazz and then the dot cluster in pear Pizzazz, Pool Party and Sweet Sugarplum; stamp greeting using Basic Grey
  • Sweet Sugarplum – 2 5/8 x 4 1/8, layer Whisper White panel on top an dad to card front
  • Pear Pizzazz – 7/8 x 1 5/8 cut into banner, Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x 1 3/4 cut on slant and add to Pear Pizzazz banner, Sweet Sugarplum print – 3/4 x 1 3/8, cut into banner and add to Pear Pizzazz banner, trim off top and add to card front.
  • Take white backs off 6 Perfect White accents and add to random dots using Tombow Multipurpose Glue
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to tree and banner to finish off
