Roses Just for You - W&W Color Combo Challenge

Need one of these!!  :)

Hi, Friends......

W&W Color Combo Inspiration
I am here with the first of several cards I made for the Winnie &Walter June Color Combo Challenge.  You can see the bright and happy inspiration colors in this photo.  >>>>>>
W&W is one of my favorite stamp companies, so I'm very happy to see lots of entries this month.  There are still a few days left, so join in if you haven't yet!!

I always enjoy seeing what I can find in my UFO (unfinished objects) and scrap stash that will fit with color challenges, so that is exactly what I did for this series of cards.  I have a ton (prob literally!!!) of patterned paper and lots of scraps.....an unending supply in every imaginable color combo.  The real challenge is deciding which scraps to use!!  :)

Some of the pieces didn't completely cut through on one of my roses....because of the very old cutting pads on my Big Shot. Instead of struggling to remove them, I left those parts in place for an "arty" look. Ha! To make it look all planned this way, I left some pieces in the other rose, too. The style of the right hand rose always looks a bit bare to me in the middle, so I glued in a random scrap for a center. 
Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Sketchy Thoughts stamp set
Versafine - Onyx Black ink
DCWV paper for background
Doily and scraps from my stash
I have several more cards for this challenge, so I will see you soon!!!

  2. I have had certain dies not cut cleanly too, and often like the effect of the inlaid parts...so I also leave them in. I just love that DCWV paper...and the roses with doily look wonderful with it. I hadn't realized you made so many cards that I hadn't commented on...but it looks like you had a real streak of inspiration!

  3. This turned out amazing - great idea for leaving part of the die in - worked out perfect. Thanks so much for joining us this time at the Craftyhazelnut's Patterned paper Challenge, Elizabeth (DT)
