Beautiful You by Stampin’ Up! #CCMC438

The Thursday Create with Connie & Mary Challenge is back this week with a colour challenge. For once I wasn’t absolutely petrified about not being able to come up with anything. I like this colour scheme – it works for me. As usual, I have kept it very CAS (clean and simple). The design of this card kind of happened by accident. I have managed to spend some time in my craft room in between cooking and looking after the Bedlam Brothers (aka my two sons). I had been playing with Beautiful You by Stampin’ Up!. It’s one of the new stamp sets from the new Spring/Summer 2017 catalogue. The more I played with this set the more I fell in love with it!

The set contains a mixture of sentiments and image stamps. There are also a couple of paint stroke stamps and I was playing around with these and I came up with was this very CAS card.

For some reason this made me think about the colour challenge. Ans I decided to create another version. I already had the Pool Party embossed panel in my basket of unfinished projects. So all I needed to do was stamp the image on a panel of Whisper White and then use one of the paint stroke images to colour the dress in the colours from the challenge.

The sentiment is also from Beautiful You and the stars are from the stars are from the Metallic Enamel shapes embellishments pack.

Please do pop over and see what the rest of the ever so talented Create with Connie & Mary design team have come up with for you this week!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is a really cool set and perfect for this color challenge! I like how you used the petal embossed background….it adds such nice texture and interest! The rhinestone stars are the perfect touch as well!

  3. Beautiful card, I totally cardnapped this for stampin up party last weekend… I was giving my demonstrater a sort of freebie month and hijacked my party 😉 the ladies LOVED this one. I just wanted you to know, that it was a hit. And yes I told them it was 100% cardnapped from you 🙂 Thank you it meant a lot for me to give my friend a stress free party and she got to make the cards this month instead of teach them.

What do you think?
