Here are the last of my June Creative Crew Challenge Cards! Both cards feature Clean And Simple (CAS) styling and showcase new 2012-14 In Color Midnight Muse.
I hope you enjoyed the other projects from Friday and Sunday’s posts! Have you had a chance to glance at the CreativeCrew Gallery on Splitcoaststampers? Whether you are a member or not, you can simply click the link for splitcoast Stampers, click on the gallery option at the top of their page, and then search for CreativeCrew (one word) to view the other design team and participant submissions!
CCREW0612CF required we use an older or even retired catalog product with new catalog items/products. My first card features two new designer series papers, Comfort Café and Patio Party. I love that these two paper packs are so compatible, don’t you?
The blossom punched mixed bunch stamped image was stamped using Pool Party Ink. A 3/4” circle of Summer Starfruit card stock was added to the floral center before piercing and adding an antique brad.
The outer DSP edges were pierced using a mat pack and paper piercing tool which retired with the last catalog… but it has also been revived in a new and improved size and format!! The Paper Piercing templates and mat now are sized to fit a standard A2 card… no more moving it around to “connect the dots” LOL!
CCREW0612DF challenges us to use ONLY 3 colors, Basic Gray, Whisper White + one New 2012-14 In Color! I can tell you I totally struggled with this limit, not sure why! Other design team members came up with some fabulous samples though be sure to check out the Creative Crew Gallery!
I hope you had a wonderful fun filled weekend, and look forward to seeing your challenge submissions and reading your comments!
