A Stamp Off Color Challenge

Stamp Off New Logo

It is that time again for another Stamp Off Challenge.  This time we had a color challenge which I presented to Buffy and Jackie.  One of the things I love about our little threesome is we all get along so well.  Although Buffy is more vintage, Jackie is more modern and I lean towards CAS (clean and simple), we can still agree on challenges to do.  Recently we had a discussion about the various Stampin’ Up! colors.  I like the Brights with Bermuda Bay being my all time favorite.  Buffy likes the Subtles and Neutrals with Blushing Bride being her favorite.  Jackie doesn’t like So Saffron, Sahara Sand and Smoky Slate but I love all of them.  We do agree that none of us like Always Artichoke!  Even though we are all so different, we can still have fun.  Why am I telling you all of this?  I gave us a color challenge to do knowing that not all of like all of these colors but we all like at least a couple of them so we can handle the rest.

SO Color Challenge-001

Here is my card:

A Nice Cuppa

I used a stamp set out of the 2016 Occasions Catalog called A Nice Cuppa.  It is the cutest set that revolves around tea.  Plus it has matching Framelits and you can save 15% buy buying both.  I made the background out of cardstock scraps.  It was a good way to use up all those little pieces I have hanging around.  I embossing each of them using the Chevron Embossing Folder.  I do have to say, this card involved math so if you don’t like math, don’t make it.  I had to figure out the sizes of the squares to make it all even.

Now go check out Buffy’s blog HERE and Jackie’s blog HERE to see what awesome things they made using this color combinations.

  1. Susan, what a wonderful card!! I love the way you’ve use the space on the card for that big cuppa, and then the cool color blocks behind it. Giving them texture really sets off the whole concept. I also admire the fact that you obviously had to use Math for this card. That is something that puts me off and would make me less likely to use such a cool background!
