Curtain Call Act 52 & FTL #112


Hello!  Are you ready for another round of the Curtain Call Color Challenge?  This week Stacey has a fun color combo and photo to inspire you.  I paired it up with the latest fall-to layout at clean & simple stamping.



I was inspired by the orange and white pattern in the photo with the beautiful turquoise ribbon.  I don't have any Tangerine ink (or anything remotely close), so I decided to stamp a pattern using white ink on Tangerine Tango cardstock.  The stamps are from PTI's Guide Lines Two, and I heat embossed the pattern with clear detail powder.  The sentiment is from Fillable Frames #4.

For the focal point, I die cut several layers of cream felt with PTI's Beautiful Blooms dies.  I don't have any Bermuda Bay, so I substituted PTI's Hawaiian Shores grosgrain ribbon.  What a fun pop of color!

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Guide Lines Two, Fillable Frames #4)
Ink:  Clearsnap (Frost White), Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate)
Tools:  EK Success (corner rounder), Papertrey Ink (Beautiful Blooms dies)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (felt, button, ribbon), Stampendous (clear embossing powder), DMC floss
