Dapper Denim

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  We are down to featuring the last of the new In Colors this week, DAPPER DENIM.

I went through all my new stamp sets and thought about the best way to showcase this fantastic new color.  In the end, I ended up with a clean and simple card featuring PLACES YOU’LL GO.

As you can see, DAPPER DENIM takes center stage on this card.

Places You'll Go

The globe was so fun to create, it’s a little different from the rest of the card since it’s done on watercolor paper.  I love the contrast of it against the crisp regular cardstock.  If you don’t have (and use) an aqua painter, you must get one!  This is such a valuable tool!!!  It makes watercolor so easy!  After heat embossing the globe in white, I added color to the globe with the aqua painter being heavy handed in some areas to add a deeper shade of blue.  Once it was completely dry, I fussy cut the globe, added silver thread and popped it up on dimensionals.

In keeping with the crisp, clean look I kept the background to a minimum by adding just a few stars and a simple sentiment.  If you haven’t given this set a good look, go back and check it out!  The sentiments are fantastic and useful with many other stamp sets.

How about a supply list so you can create your own PLACES YOU’LL GO CARD……….
