More Touches of Texture by Stampin’ Up! for CCMC414

It’s time for another Create with Connie & Mary Colour Challenge. I’m bringing you more Touches of Texture by Stampin’ Up! I love this stamp set and I hope it sticks around with Gorgeous Grunge for a long time to come!

The colours for this challenge are Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango and Cucumber Crush.  I have to be honest, I have not been looking forward to creating something with this combination. I have been scratching my head since I first saw it and as usual I left it to the last minute to make my card.

More Touches of Texture by Stampin Up! Tracy May #CCMC414

I really love the card I came up with in the end! Sometimes for me, working under pressure is the best way. I don’t have time to overthink every single detail and whether it would look better a little different or in a different colour! LoL!

This card is really easy to create and would a great card if you need to make a big batch in one go!

  1. I stamped Peekaboo Peach as the background spatter;
  2. Stamp the flower stem in Cucumber Crush;
  3. Stamp the flower petals in Tangerine Tango;
  4. Stick a strip of the spotty Peekaboo Peach Washi Tape, from the Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape set, along the bottom right of the card front;
  5. Stamp your sentiment in StazOn along the Washi tape;
  6. Mount the card front onto a layer of Basic Black card stock and then onto a Whisper White Card Base;
  7. Finish off with some embellishments. I used the new Metallic Enamel Shapes (Silver).

That’s all there is to it. It’s a very simple, but very effective card. I hope you like it.

The rest of the design team have come up with more fantastic projects to inspire you, so pop over to the challenge page and take a look.


  1. I do like it Tracy – sometimes a quick card is just what you need and it always helps when someone else has worked it out for us! This flower looks lovely in these colours – I may have to CASE this card for a class I do at a local care home, as it totally ticks their boxes: colourful, easy to recreate and a little washi tape and a few enamel stars for those all important embellishments. I love the black border too – it frames your central panel beautifully. Duly pinned!

  2. Love this card! I think you handled the color combination brilliantly! I agree it was a combination that scared me too!

  3. LOVE the CAS design with this more vintage looking stamp set! I just mounted mine and love your samples! Gorgeous! Great job with the color challenge this week!
