CC199 & SC209

2 Challenges in 1, and boy was this a challenge!! Whew I am so glad to have this card done. I do not reach for So Saffron, and I definitely am not a Hunter girl. So this was a challenge. Then I tried to use only scraps of these colors. Like I said WHEW!! I guess this is why they call it a challenge. Enough complaining!!


I used my new Dream a Little stamp set. This set will be coming out with the new SU catalog. It will be a hostess set, a level 3 I think. I stamped the flower outline full strength and then the inside stamped off once. Next I stamped them again, but I sponged saffron and burgundy in the center. I cut the centers out and glue them to the first flowers. The leaves are scraps of Hunter punched with the 5 petal punch. I ran the background saffron layer through my cuttlebug.

Stamps: Dream a Little
Paper: Handsome Hunter, Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron, Whisper White
Inks: Handsome Hunter, Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron
Extras: 5 petal punch, Dimensionals, Cuttlebug with Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder.
