Bloggers’ Challenge – Color challenge


Today’s Bloggers’ Challenge is a color throwdown!  We were to use Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo and a neutral.  Can you say BRIGHT!  I naturally thought of flowers…but no green in there.  Then I looked at this stamp set and realized I had never used this image from the For All You Do set.  The card came together pretty easy after that!


I started by stamping the flower image in Melon Mambo on Whisper White and layered it on both Melon Mambo and Chocolate Chip.  Before putting it on the Chocolate Chip layer, I pierced each of the centers of the little flowers with my Paper Piercer and mat.  Now the Chocolate Chip layer peeks thru the holes!

I used some Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper and layered it on Chocolate Chip.  I needed some buttons in the Melon Mambo color, but didn’t have anything close to that color in my Stampin’ Up! supplies.  I decided to use the Button die in my Big Shot with the Melon Mambo cardstock.  I cut small slivers of Chocolate Chip cardstock to feed thru the holes in the buttons to look like thread!  All these elements were layered on Crushed Curry and I wrapped some Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon around it and tied with a knot.  Then placed everything on the base card of Chocolate Chip cardstock.

I love the contrast of colors…they just POP!

I hope you have a great weekend!  I’m looking forward to relaxing a little!
