Oh, Hello...

Welcome back stampers!

Create with Connie and Mary is already on Week 4 and the designers have created amazing projects!  I made some time to create something for the current challenge on the blog.  When I first saw this color challenge, the Not Quite Navy color threw me off.  This is my first time EVER creating with this color, not sure why, but glad I finally created with it. With over 40 exclusive Stampin' Up! colors, plus In-Colors, sooner or later, I'm bound to use each color at least once.

I did play with some new stamping toys while creating this card.  The most exciting part of this card for me, cutting fabric with our Dress Up Framelits! Oh my gosh, fabric, the possibilities!   This daffodil delight chevron pattern is from the Essentials Designer Fabric pack.  Our 1/4 stitched grosgrain ribbon makes a perfect belt for the dress. I also used our seam binding ribbon to create the ruffled ribbon border on the oval but I need more practice doing this. The fold on the card is called double dutch fold and I found the tutorial here from Splitcoast Stampers.

So what do you think of the color combo? Not bad huh!  You can see other designs with this combo here. Well friends that's all for now. Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you are creating something this week. Until next time.
