CCMC3 – Color Challenge

Over on Create with Connie and Mary's Saturday Challenge, we have a color combination challenge!  It is the only day we share our cards/projects on our personal blogs along with on the Create site for subscribers.  Our subscribers are invited to play along for a chance to win one of two $75 merchandise gift certificates or a chance at one of four free subscriptions to the next Edition! 


This CCMC3 Challenge we were to use the colors of Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Garden Green, Kraft and Pumpkin Pie.  Hint…all  these colors are in the Travel Jounal Designer Paper.  We've been featuring it this week, along with Pedalling Past and Sentimental Journey stamp sets!  It's not too late to join!  You are able to see and download all the posts we've already done AND will still have two more full weeks of projects and ideas to look forward to getting!  The Summer Mini is just FULL of great products!



I made a small sized square card for my challenge card.  It is 4 1/4 square, so will fit in a Medium sized envelope without extra postage costs.  I used Kraft for the base, then layered on Night of Navy cardstock.  I used the printed map from Travel Journel Designer Paper, then used just a strip of the reverse side stripe to lay over it.  Can you tell what the scallop is behind the car?  YES!  I used the small cog from the new Cog Punch in a scallop type pattern underneath the Pumpkin Pie circle.  The car was stamped with Garden Green Classic Ink on Whisper White and punched with the 1 3/4 circle punch…then layered on the Circles #2 die, with the Kraft cogs behind it.  I stamped Happy Graduation from Teeny Tiny Wishes on Garden Green and punched with the Modern Label punch.  I added two Pewter Vintage Mini Brads on each side.  I stamped the compass in Pumpkin Pie and punched with the 1" circle, then placed a mini brad inside and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals!  It was FUN and I think makes a great Grad card!


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team has done this week with the color challenge!  I'm sure they will have wonderful ideas!
