It's time for another Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge! I really like the colors is this week's challenge:
Where did my Mojo come from?
Well some of it came from the fact that I had limited Rich Razzleberry card stock so I knew I needed to use Rich Razzleberry ink as my main resource to meet the color challenge. So as the saying goes "Necessity is the mother of invention".
I grabbed the Wonderfall stamp set and the Autumn Accents Die and made the leaf using Rich Razzleberry. The Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon adds the missing color to my card.
Now to put the elements together… The Stampin' Up1 Stripes Embossing Folder added much needed dimension to the Whipser White card stock, yet I only applied it to the bottom section of the card stock. Rich Razzleberry was used to create the sentiment from the Happy Day stamp set for the top of the card. A Crushed Curry candy dot was the finishing touch.
Here was another version I did…
I think the Whisper White base provides a crisper look. Which one do you prefer? Leave me a comment to let me know!
Thanks for stopping by today. Cheers,
Perhaps I shouldn't say this, but I LOVE this card. The Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds takes the card from cute baby card to a WOW baby card.
Where did my Mojo come from?
I do not have baby stamp sets due to where I am in my life right now. So when I need to make a baby card I rely on using other stamp sets in a unique way. I recently created a card with the Zoo Babies stamp set (see that post here) and I wanted to do something different. Once again I did a search in Pinterest. Nothing was catching my eye until I found a card with a rattle on the front. That was all I needed. There was no name to acknowledge for the inspiration, so whoever originated the idea – Thank You!
The rattle was easy to create with my circle punches and a thin slice of Pink Pirouette card stock. I stamped my Versamark Stamp pad half-way up the large circle then sprinkled with Stampin' Up's Heat n' Stick powder. With a little heat from my heat gun the powder turns sticky. Then you sprinkle on the Dazzling Diamonds and work it into the area. Shake off the excess. Then step back and go WOW!
I used the Scallop Trim Boarder punch for the finishing touch on the rattle. This created a clean border between the dazzling diamonds and the "plain" side of the rattle.
A little ribbon finishes it all off.
Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite stamp set is for baby cards?
Come back tomorrow for another Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge!

A clean and crisp thank you card. I love the Lots of Thanks stamp set. It includes nine different stamps with beautiful and varied fonts to say “thank you”. It also comes in French and German. I often check out the French verison when available to see if I might like to also purchase it in French. When I saw this stamp set in French it was love at first sight.
Where did my mojo come from for this card?
From one of my favorite catalogs where they showed four solid colored placements layered on top of one another. Since becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I see the world in Stampin’ Up! colors. I immediately said to myself,”oh those colors are Basic Grey, Bermuda Bay, Summer Starfruit and Early Espresso”. I chose to use Smoky Slate rather than Early Espresso to keep the card lighter. You can find inspiration almost anywhere.
Did I get your mojo going? I would love to hear from you. Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for the Pals Blog Hop. It is sure to give you lots of great inspiration from so many talented stampers.
Until tomorrow, cheers!
