New Colors Betsy's Blossoms Card


Happy Monday! The Paper Players have a fun color challenge this week featuring three new colors by Stampin' Up! The colors are:
  • Bermuda Bay
  • Baked Brown Sugar
  • Crushed Curry
 I really love these colors together! For my entry I created this New Colors Betsy's Blossoms Card using the sketch from The Sweet Stop challenge. My stash is very limited on new product by Stampin' Up! but I did order the Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper. The Crushed Curry patterned paper is from that collection. For the Bermuda Bay strips I used the emboss resist technique and the En Francais stamp. After embossing white card stock with clear embossing powder, I sponged on Bermuda Bay ink. At this point I wasn't sure what my focal point should be but I looked through my current stamp sets and decided Betsy's Blossoms would make the best choice. I fussy-cut the bird and stem and layered the center together on top of a flower shape I cut using my Cricut machine. The finishing touch was a little pearl for the birds eye. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

My New Colors Betsy's Blossoms Card is entered into the following challenges:
