Triple Treat in the House and Home

I was digging through my stash and found some precut bits I got in a grab bag from the Stampin' Up Clearance rack last year. I became determined to start making stuff with those bits. SO I had a white square to mat on a More Mustard square, hmmmm. It is spring, how do I make this work? So I started hunting for color combos. Now, I am about to share a secret source here.... I found it through Pinterest and I love the color combos on this site!

Isn't this gorgeous?! The site is Photo Card Boutique and has fantastic color combos. Very trendy.

The colors are brighter in real life, it is a rainy day as I am typing this so lighting was a bit of an issue, sorry. That is Baja Breeze, which matches the color in the inspiration photo, I promise! And this card definitely had a mind of its own, evolving as I went. It has a real feel of country charm to it, if a bit on the autumn side. Or rainy side, with the muted colors... And that lovely little sentiment tag, that covers on opportunity for embellishment, lol! I smeared the accent ink while drawing the white outline. And would have thought House and Home would coordinate so well with Triple Treat?!
  • Stamps: Triple Treat, House & Home, It's Your Day
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight marker
  • Paper: Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Whisper White
  • Other: Big Shot with Adorning Accents die and embossing folder and Festive Finishes Pick a Pattern Letterpress Plate, 5 Petal punch, Curly Label punch, 1/2" Circle punch, Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, Moonlight Smooch Accent Ink, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals
Wow, I didn't realize how many accessories I used until I typed it out! Crazy!

Here you can see that the flower petals are curled up just a little for more dimension.  Too bad it would get flattened in the mail. This is a 5x5 card. SU has envies that fit it :)

Inside has a few more flowers, and you can see a little better that I colored the centers with Daffodil Delight, then put a dot of the Moonlight Accent ink in the centers also. A little overkill? I think not!
