Stamp-Off Friday Color Challenge
It’s time for another Stamp-Off Friday Challenge! I love the challenges with Susan and Jackie! They really challenge me – and this one is one of the most challenging. It’s a color challenge.
Lemon Lime Twist – Got it! I love Lemon Lime Twist! Wooooohooo! Elegant Eggplant – Woooooot! – with Lemon Lime Twist – Hmmmmm. A little harder. Ok, though – I’ve got this. Tempting Turquoise with anything…Hmmmm, No.
Tempting Turquoise is my nemesis. Seriously. I love the color, but using it with any stamps and other colors just gives me hives. It’s the color that I challenge myself to use, because it’s the last one I ever go to, even though I really love the color. I paired it with Real Red many years ago – ahhhhh! LOVE! But with Lemon Lime Twist? Who posted this challenge, and do I need to unfriend her?
I had to think about this one. Lemon Lime Twist….grass, leaves, other greens. Got it! Elegant Eggplant…shadows, mountains. Tempting Turquoise…water, and…Yeah, I’m out.
So – I went with grass, water, and mountains and got this card using the beautiful High Tide stamp set and a new set that will be available January 3 (unless you’re a demonstrator), Waterfront.
How much do you love the Waterfront set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog? I hope you love it a lot, because you’ll probably be seeing a lot of samples between now and the end of the Occasions Catalog Sales Period. This is my absolute favorite set from the Occasions Catalog.
I stamped the Lemon Lime Twist “land” first. Then I stamped the mountains in Elegant Eggplant. Some of them were stamped off to create distance. And then I stamped the water in Tempting Turquoise.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a messy stamper. So I often have smudges or stamp edge marks or fingerprints (yeah; I’ve had fingerprints and even blood; so much DNA!) on my cards. To cover up some of my smudges, I added the birds from the High Tide Stamp Set and the splatters from Waterfront.
I stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock, then sponged the edges with Elegant Eggplant and added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used the Duo Banner Punch to create the banner.
So there you go – my super color challenge card. Please take a few minutes to check out Jackie and Susan’s blogs to see their awesome creations using this challenge. You’ll be glad you checked in – and you’ll probably want to follow their blogs as well! Susan posts every Monday through Friday, and Jackie posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I always check out their posts because they’re amazing and inspire me every day!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy! Have a beautiful day.
