April Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Waltz, please continue to scroll down or click HERE~ Thanks :)***
Hi there! Thanks so much to all who played along with us last week ~ so many pretty pink creations and thanks to all who continually support the challenge, the CR84FN DT and me :)
Are you ready for a new CR84FN Color Challenge? I know I am!
Here's my interpretation of the warm pastel colors:
(Note: you can rotate this image 360 degrees by doing the following... Within the photo, click and drag your mouse pointer to the left or right to spin the box! You can also use the left and right arrows on your keyboard or use the left and right arrows icons. You can also zoom in or out to get a better view of the box by using the (+) and (-) icons. Lastly, you can simply press the Play icon (circular arrow) to rotate the box automatically. Give it a try!)
I am lovin' the gorgeous Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Collection, the colors fit the bill so I ran with it! If you have visited my blog over the past few days, you may have noticed the crepe paper flowers and leaves I've been sporting on my projects? I am using Melissa Frances Vintage crepe paper and following Danielle Flanders awesome tutorial found HERE. SUPER easy!
Blossom die templates to cut a few layers of Crepe paper. To make the tag on the purse, I stamped a label image from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 1
with VersaMark ink, embossed with white embossing powder then used a Labels One die template to cut/emboss the image, adding a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Compliment of the Season.
That pretty much wraps up my take on the CR84FN24 color combo. Please hop on over to CR84FN for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration, please visit all the designers blogs:

If you are interested in a tutorial on how I made the purse shown in this post, please continue looking:
Step 1: First cut purse "parts" Using Spellbinders™Grand Labels Eleven #5 ~ cut patterned paper x 1, with #6 ~ cut Kraft cs x 1. Using Grand Labels One #3 ~ cut Kraft cs x 2, with #4 ~ cut patterned paper x 2. Set aside.
Step 4: Adhere Kraft cs and patterned paper labels made from Grand Labels One together and trim 3/4" from edge on ONE side. Making flat surface for purse topper set set on top of.
Step 7: To place eyelets on top of purse for handle, measure1 1/2" from LEFT and RIGHT side, center and place eyelets. To make holes to attach topper to purse body, measure 3/4" down from scored line on one side of top purse, center and punch 3 holes 1" apart from each other.
**I will be back today at 3:00 AM Eastern with another project to share for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz EASTER theme. Hope to see you then :)
