Lovely Romance in Pistachio and Cantaloupe

Lovely Romance, Stampin' Up!This is one of the cards we’ll be making at stamp camps this week.  My friend Linda Wicks used this color combination on a card I saw on Pinterest, and it was so gorgeous, I had to copy her idea.

I used Pistachio Pudding, Cantaloupe Crisp and Naturals White Cardstock.  First I stamped the I Love Lace background in Pistachio Pudding on Pistachio Pudding.  Then I stamped the Lovely Romance image on Naturals White Cardstock in Wild Wasabi classic ink, and die-cut with the smallest Deco Labels framelit.

I wanted just a pop of color, so I added a layer of Cantaloupe Crisp and a Petite Petals flower in Cantaloupe Crisp.  The coordinating Petite Petals Punch is so much easier than fussy cutting! I just remembered I wanted to add a basic pearl jewel to the center of the flower.  I’ll add that before tomorrow.

Before I glued it all together, I added a strip of Venetian Crochet Trim to the card.  It’s so pretty, and works with the lacy background stamp to give the card that vintage look.

I’ll show you some of the other cards over the next few days.  Tomorrow I’ll have another fabulous Craft Project Central project for you!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!

    Buffy such a pretty card and pretty color combo… I really like the piercing on the embellishment too. The only pistaschio I’ve touched lately is the Pistaschio/Cranberry cookies I made!
    Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
    hugs Diane.
