Baja Nature


This card is the last of my Creative Crew challenge entries for this month.

I was lucky that my new Nature Walk set fit perfectly with this colour challenge.  Neutrals with a touch of Baja (my favourite Stampin Up colour).

Next months challenges are a bit more challenging for me. I haven’t even started them yet, oops! Lets just say they’re not my favourite colour combinations and I may have trouble coming up with something that I like. We’ll have to wait and see but I will have some new Creative Crew cards to show you in June!


CCREW0511DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM - DSP/Color Focus:
-- Go neutral with a splash of color! Instead of whisper white or very vanilla, try naturals white or ivory, confetti white or cream. Large emphasis on neutrals. Look to the Elegant Soiree DSP this month for inspiration: All neutrals with that splash of baja breeze! You do not have to use the Elegant Soiree DSP but that is the look that we're after.

I did use very vanilla on this card though.



I brayered crumb cake onto the tulip embossing folder and ran it through the big shot with very vanilla card..  I liked the effect it gave the card.

I stamped the images with suede and just used an aquapainter to apply touches of Baja to them and sponged the squares with crumbcake.

The ribbon is vanilla taffeta which I tried to kind of pleat rather than gather up this time.


Ingredients :

Stamps : Nature walk, because I care, elements of style

Card : naturals ivory, vanilla, baja, crumbcake

Ink : suede, crumbcake, baja

Other : vanilla taffeta ribbon, pearls, hodgepodge hardware, square punch, big shot, framed tulips embossing folder, aquapainter, brayer, sticky strip
