Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Color Challenge SSINKCC37: Pun Intended

Good morning and Happy Labor Day!  We were so happy that the storm that was predicted to impact our weekend weather didn't give us more than cooler, breezier days.  With the start of the new month comes fun, new challenges over on the SSINKspiration blog, starting with today's color sketch.  These colors are perfect for the arrival of fall and was fun to play with since I haven't used this combo before.  It was also about time to play with one of the great new hostess sets in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, Pun Intended.

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Garden Green cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Lucky Stars Embossing Folder.  Next I added a piece of Chocolate Chip designer series paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack and matted it with Crumb Cake cardstock.  A piece of 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon was wrapped around the layers and cardfront before tying a knot.

For the main stamped image I used the Pun Intended Hostess Set and stamped the camera image in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out with the Big Shot and Layering Squares Framelits and then I sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink.  I cut a scallop square mat for the camera piece using Cajun Craze cardstock and attaching the piece to the cardfront with dimensionals.

The greeting is from the same stamp set and was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Cajun Craze cardstock before punching it out with the Classic Label Punch.  The greeting was attached with dimensionals and I added a couple of Pearls as the final touch.

This was my first time using this set and I love the images and the cheeky sayings, so fun!!  The design team is sharing some other great cards using this color sketch so go check them out for inspiration and then play along with the color sketch (the long holiday weekend is perfect for a little extra crafting time!!)

Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!
