Happy Thursday stampers! It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge! It's color week and we've got a soft, sweet combo of Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Crumb Cake. Rose Red is one of those neglected colors for me. I just don't seem to use it very often...in fact usually only when I have too! Don't get me wrong. It's a beautiful shade of pink. I usually tend to gravitate towards the brighter pink of Melon Mambo or the softer shades of Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride first.
The Paper Players had a tic-tac-toe challenge going on this week and you know I can't resist a tic-tac-toe! I just love the concept of this challenge. I used Die cuts, Pink, and Girly.
So, when I looked at these colors I automatically thought of sweet and what could be sweeter than a cupcake?!?! I stamped the cupcake top in Rose Red and shaded it in with some Blushing Bride. The cupcake wrapper is Crumb Cake, of course. I wanted to have a striped background and first tried my hand at making my own by sponging some crumb cake on Crumb Cake. It just didn't work out, so I turned to my DSP stash. The Crumb Cake stripped piece is from the Go Wild paper stack.
I set the cupcake on some diecut Blushing Bride and Blushing Bride Glimmer circles and layered them onto a paper doily, tying in the girly aspect. The heart and sequins are girly as well....and pink!
I hope to see some of your creations in the Create with Connie and Mary gallery!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
