For You – FabFri60

This week’s FabFriday Color Challenge includes five colors – FIVE!  They are Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler.  Did I mention there are five?  While I was initially convinced I couldn’t work all of these colors into a single card, I quickly changed my mind after I really started playing around with shapes and images.  Woo hoo!  Here’s my card:

Pictogram Punches, Work of Art,And Many More, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, FabFri60And here’s the challenge banner that inspired my creation:

FabFri60Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Beautiful Background.  Two weeks ago, I shared my 12 Days of Christmas gift tags.  We all remember tag #6, right?  It was our collective favorite.  🙂  If you missed it, see it here.  Anyway, my tag was the inspiration for this background – combining three of the colors into one beautiful background with one beautiful image from Work of Art.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-Jig to line up all the images and combined fully-inked images with those I stamped off once before stamping onto the Whisper White front.
  • Pictogram Punches.  I love this stamp set, and I knew I wanted to feature it with this background image – note that the zig-zag on the vase ties in with the background pattern.  To prevent it from getting too busy, I mounted the flower and coordinating vase on a Whisper White oval.
  • Stamp One, Two, Three.  To create this image on the oval, I stamped the image in Old Olive on the oval.  On a piece of scrap paper, I stamped the image in Bermuda Bay and cropped out the vase and positioned it on top of the Old Olive image.  The flowers were stamped with Cherry Cobbler and punched with the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

  5. I love this so much, I had to “pin” it twice! Once for the card and once for the color combo! I would’ve thrown my hands up and said, “Fugghetaboutit!” Awesome job, as always 🙂

    You have the best eye for design! Do you hold classes? I know I’ve seen you mention that you don’t do much in the way of parties. I really want to take lessons from you when we move back to the US! Atlanta isn’t that far from NC!

    Thank you for sharing your talents with us on a daily basis!

  7. I’m not only impressed with how well you combined all those colors, but with that amazing background. I can’t stop staring at it! Gorgeous card, Brian!

  8. Absolutely gorgeous Brian. Of course there probably isn’t any need for me to tell you that because all one has to do is look at the card to see how beautiful it is. You took a very complicated background and made it look simple. I just love this one Brian – outstanding!
