Game Night – DCBD Color 110

I’m finally glad to be getting back into a routine I’ve been out of since before the holidays!  One of the things I’ve missed doing is the Diva Coffee Break Designer challenges.  This week’s challenge was to use the color combination of Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Kraft and Close to Cocoa.  Close to Cocoa isn’t  really a poker chip color in real life, but I still liked how this turned out!

Thanks to Annette for the inspiration on what to use for the center of a poker chip.  I used the circle stamp in Think Happy Thoughts.  (Annette used one of the circles in Big Flowers.)  As I mentioned before, I was confused on why Stampin’ Up! didn’t include a poker chip in the set, but did on the Jackpot Designer Paper…now I can make them up in any color I want!

This card started with a base of Riding Hood Red, then a layer of Kraft cardstock.  I added a 2" strip of Jackpot Designer Paper and a strip of Riding Hood Red that I punched with the scallop edge punch.  The Poker Chip is the bottom of the basket die from Basket & Blooms and I cut one out of Very Vanilla and Close to Cocoa.  I stamped Big Winner in Close to Cocoa on Very Vanilla, then trimmed the edge to a pennant shape with my Photo Corner punch.  I think this would make a great masculine birthday card!

It is SNOWING big time here.  Guess I need to get out there and run the snow blower.  I have to run to the post office, too.  Yuk!

Check out the rest of the DCBD challenge cards this week!

EDIT:  OK…the Close to Cocoa chip bugged me so I made another one with the Black Poker Chip…I like it better!  I did do a little research online and I guess poker chips do come in ALL colors!

Neat card. I like how you cut the poker chip around the edges. I have to say when I first saw the Jackpot DSP I did not like it. It is growing on me though because of seeing what people have designed with it.

Very cool–I’m so happy to see more options for masculine cards, this card is an awesome example. Great tip on the chip!

How cute! What a clever idea for making your own poker chip.

These are both great Connie! What a clever way to use that new DSP!

Very cute card Connie – I like them both, it is amazing how much it changed the card, using the black vs close to cocoa.
