Color Inspiration 44

Here is a card I made using this week's Color Inspiration Challenge #44 - Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White. Mmmm, such yummy colors - I love them!

Do you recognize this stamp set? No way! This is a set that will be released in the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog called Sense of Time. It has four images - this large clock image, a small clock gears image and two fabulous sentiments! I love clocks, so probably would have purchased this set anyway, but both of these sentiments sealed the deal for me - you'll have to watch for another card using this set to find out the other one is!

I stamped the clock image in Close to Cocoa ink onto the Whisper White card stock. I also stamped a few of the clock gears image in Pretty in Pink ink around the edges of the clock. Then I placed a piece of Vellum card stock over the clock image and using my SAMJ, I stamped the sentiment over the clock in Chocolate Chip ink, just exactly where I wanted it to be. I used a tiny bit of Tombo Mono Multi adhesive on just a couple of spots, right over the ink, so the adhesive will not show through the Vellum. I layered this piece onto a narrow piece of Chocolate Chip card stock and then onto a mat of Pink Pirouette card stock.

I used my 1/2" Circle Punch to punch the hole on the right side of the main image. Then I poked this Jumbo Grommet (a new accessory item in the upcoming Occasions Mini!) into the cardstock and pressed its prongs back with my Bone Folder. I used my Crop-A-Dile to add the hole punches across the bottom of the Pirouette mat. This gorgeous ribbon in the 1 1/4" Pink Pirouette Ribbon wrapped around a strip of pattern paper from Bella Birds DSP. Then I just pulled the ends through the Grommet and added a few Mini Glue Dots to keep them just where I wanted them. Finally, I layered the main image piece to the Close to Cocoa card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the inside of this card, I added a narrow strip of the Bella Birds DSP onto a liner of Pink Pirouette card stock. I also stamped the gears image in Close to Cocoa ink.
