Color challenges this week.

These cards today were made for the color challenge and sketch challenges this week at Splitcoast Stampers. The first card is for the clean and simple sketch challenge CAS25, and the color challenge, which was pixie pink, apricot appeal, and certainly celery. I used the Big Shot texturz plate 'Eyelets' for the background texture on the whisper white card base. The main image from 'Live Like You Mean It' stamp set, is stamped in certainly celery and pixie pink. I added the silver brads to finish the flower centers. The bottom is apricot appeal designer paper, tied with a piece of certainly celery grosgrain ribbon. I added the strip of pixie pink with the scallop edge to the side. All products are Stampin'Up!
This card was made for the sketch challenge SC239 and the color challenge CC229. It uses the new set 'For all you do' which I just received! The main image uses the flowers and the butterfly ( with the dots stamp added over the butterfly wings for some added texture). The celery and apricot appeal strips are designer papers.
All supplies Stampin'Up!

Thanks for looking!

CAS24 challenge.

This was made for the clean and simple challenge yesterday at Splitcoast. It was a color challenge, yellow, turquoise and orange. I used a retired set, Polka Dots and Petals, along with Define Your Life, for the sentiment. The colors I used are: so saffron, pumpkin pie, and tempting turquoise. The ribbon is the SAB so saffron grosgrain.

Thanks for looking!

Items from the new catalog

I have had some fun creating some samples for my open house for the new Stampin'Up! catalog.
This card uses my favorite new color, rich razzleberry, for the base. The top is pale plum card stock which has been embossed with the new Sizzex embossing folder elegant bouquet. The small flowers are cut with the Sizzlets floral fusion die out of rich razzleberry card stock and some of the paper from the Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper. The leaves were cut with the little leaves sizzlit die out of old olive card stock. The sentiment is from the teeny tiny wishes set, and punched with the new modern punch, then attached with some old olive ribbon. Some mustard colored brads finish off the flowers.
This card is similar. It uses rich razzleberry for the base, then the top is orchid opulence embossed with the same embossing folder. The main image is from the Simply Said set. It is colored in orchid opulence, rich razzleberry, and old olive felt pens, then I added some crystal effects with some dazzling diamonds to the flowers. the ribbon is the new dotted grosgrain in the rich razzleberry color. I think this one will be one we will make for a make and take.
