Color Round Up #48; Dark and Dreary Card

Color Round Up #48

 (CRU #48)

Morning everyone!!

Sorry I have been missing in action, life is just so crazy here right now were winding down for the season and lots to do before winter is upon us. Were still cutting and hauling firewood in every spare min. as well. Some of you have been asking about my dad, he is still adjusting to not working. Last month they put him on a portable oxygen tank so yes the COPD is progressing. So that has been a adjustment as well, but doing pretty good I think. It's not easy watching your parents health deteriorate, so thank you all for your support, emails, thoughts and prayers for our family we really appreciate it!!!

I actually got to do a little stamping hooray!!! Every Wednesday I will be posting a new Color Round Up Color Challenge!!! All color challenges will be based on Stampin' Up! color families. I am a Stampin' Up! Demo so all my samples will only use SU product.

My base is Basic Black card stock. I then cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and round the bottom corners with the 3/16 Corner Punch. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. I took the stamp from Dark and Dreary Stamp Set; inked in Basic Black and stamped onto the top part of the Crumb Cake card stock. I cut a piece of Baja Breeze card stock and punched one side out with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I cut strips of Frightful Sight and Pick Your Poison DSP. I then ran some 1 1/4 Cajun Craze Stripped Grosgrain Ribbon above the DSP. I ran some 1/2 Crumb Cake Seam Binding across the top of ribbon. I then placed Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the Crumb Cake card stock and attached to the Basic Black card stock. I cut a piece of Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla card stock. I took the stamp from Grateful Greetings Stamp Set; inked in Versamark and then in Cajun Craze. I stamped onto the Very Vanilla card stock then poured Clear Embossing Powder over the image. I then heat set it with the Heat Tool. I rounded the upper right hand corner with the 3/16 Corner Punch. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. I then snailed it to the Baja Breeze card stock. I placed Stampin' Dimensionals on the back and attached to the card. To finish off the card I added a Designer Buttons Neutrals to the bow and added some Jewels Basic Pearls to the card.
