Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Color Challenge SSINKCC43: Any Occasion

Good morning!  Well this weekend was a cold reminder that winter may not quite be finished with us but thankfully we weren't super, crazy busy this weekend so we were able to relax and stay warm inside (which of course meant some extra crafting time, which I needed).  It's a new week and so we have another challenge over on the SSINKspiration blog, this time it's a color challenge.  Since we just have a few short weeks of Sale-a-bration left I decided to combine several SAB freebies in this challenge to create a cute baby card (it's always good to have a selection of cards ready to go and I needed a few more baby options so this was perfect!)

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Whisper White cardstock with a mat of Perfect Plum.  On the Whisper White layer I used the Timeless Textures stamp set to stamp in the background.  I used a piece of the gold metallic ribbon (from the SAB 3/8" Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack) and attached it with the Handheld Stapler.

For the stamped image I started by cutting a circle out of Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits and then used the Any Occasion stamp set (another SAB Freebie) and created the banner details using all the little stamps in the set (the stamps being photopolymer make perfect placement super easy!)  I matted the circle with a circle of Melon Mambo cardstock cut out with the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits.  Before attaching the circle to the cardfront with dimensionals I attached a small gold metallic doily (from the Metallic Foil Doilies pack) to peek out from behind the circle.

This is a great color combo and lends itself to so many different options.  This isn't your standard baby card, it's a bit more elegant and a fun change of pace.  The design team shared some great cards using the same colors and they're such a wide variety, you should definitely check them out and then play along and share what you create, we would love to see what you come up with!
