Color Challenge 20

9:36 PM Edit This 1 Comment »
This card was made for the Late Night Stampers Color challenge #20. We were to use Choc. Chip. Kraft, Ruby Red and Old Olive. For some reason this idea came to mind right away. The background isn't exactly how I imagined it, but close. I just stamped the sentiment and decorative flourish kind of randomly all over and sponged the edges. My colors were added with pastels. Yes, I cut out the flowers and now I remember why I was tempted to get the Fiskars finger exacto knife thingy. The 5/8" ribbon finishes it. Hope you like it!

Happy Memorial Day! Thanks to all who have served our country!

Here's a fun card I just had to make for a friend. I got the pattern from Stamp Owl Here. It's really easy and could actually be used for quite a few occassions. You could "support" someone, be "behind" them all the way, you know - that sort of thing ; )

I used Blush Blossom for the base and the Regal Rose Designer Series Paper you can get for free as a level 1 Hostess gift. The white flower is from the Trio Flower punch. Cute and simple!

Here's a card I did for a challenge on Late Night Stampers group. You had to CASE a card from the group's "mom", Sherrill, Here. I picked this one because I just love those little flowers and that leaf die. I changed the colors, double up my ribbon, and added a scalloped border. Left out the embossing and rub-on. It was pretty quick except for piecing the scalloped border together. Here are a two ways to this: punch out a bunch of circles and adhere them half way or so to the back, overlapping them as you go; or cut the center of the scallop punch out and cut into sections. Take the sections and "stretch" them around your circle. Oh - and it's easier to to put the adhesive on the circle - not the pieces. Hope you enjoy it - and visit Sherrill's Late Night Stamper's group. It's a great resource for everything Stampin' Up! and she does contests too!
