I just absolutely love doing Kristina's color inspiration challenges if you cant tell. They are great and are usually color combos that I have not worked with before. I was looking at my new Crazy for Cupcake stamp set trying to decide on a birthday card that I had to make. I was drawing blanks so I had to go see if there was a new color inspiration up, and sure enough it was just what I needed. Here is Kristina's Color Inspiration #25:
So the colors are Ballet Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron and Ruby Red, which is a perfect combo for a kids birthday card. Here is what I came up with:
I used the new scallop circle die that goes with the bigshot to make the card base. I embossed the cupcake tower image on all four colors and cut them out. I was really struggling with the embossing powder sticking to the cardstock. As I was cutting these little buggers out, I would end up bending the card stock the littlest bit and the embossing powder would come off. These were the best of what was left. It was very frustrating. Next time I will probably just use white craft ink.
