It's All About Stamping

Delicious Color Challenge


Our Creative Corner’s September hostess Dana Grothaus has challenged us to this  Color Inspiration Challenge today. 

OCC 091909

My first inclination was to make a card with cupcakes on it using these colors.  But that would be too easy!  I decided to see if I could use these colors to make a seasonal card.  After all, what’s the fun if I don’t make it hard on myself, right? Ugh!  So here’s the attempt at the “seasonal” card using these colors!

Ever notice how difficult Regal Rose is to get to look true to color in photos? 

Here a close up of the snowflake:  close 2

Give the color challenge a try!  (You don’t even have to try to make it hard on yourself!)  Be sure and check out the rest of the OCC design team creations!  We invite you to take the challenge and play along.  There is no time limit on our  challenges.  Feel  free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Here’s what I used:
Stamps: Snow Swirled, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Chocolate Chip DSP, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White,
Ink: Chocolate Chip Craft, Whisper White Craft,
Accessories: White EP, Diamond Stickles, Regal Rose 5/8″ grosgrain ribbon, Silver Elastic Cord, Silver Brads, Sm rhinestone pearls (recollections), Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, M.S. punch, Corner Rounder punch,  Sizzlits Snowflakes Set #2
