Fab Friday Color Challenge

Welcome to day three of my series on stamping challenge blogs.  I hope you'll play along with me!   

Today I'm playing along with the Fab Friday gang and this week's challenge is a color challenge!

 Fab Fri Logos-024
These colors are great for Halloween and the Fab Friday design team did either a Fall or Halloween card (or muslin bag with awesome tag) with them.  You should check them out--their designs are awesome, as usual!  I decided I wanted to stray from the "obvious" and see if I could use this color combination on an "everyday" card.  Here's what I came up with: 

(Stamp Sets: Pleasant Poppies, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive; Card Stock:  Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Very Vanilla; Accessories: Stripes and Square Lattice Embossing Folders, Labels Collection Framelits, Word Window and Modern Label Punches, Brights Candy Dots, Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon; Festive Paper Piercing Pack, Blender Pen)

Also in keeping with this week's theme of trying things outside my comfort zone, I colored the image.  I hate to color.  I never have liked it--oh, maybe when I was a kid--but now that I'm grown I don't like to color...because I'm not very good at it and I'm never satisfied with the results.  This card turned out right cute, if I do say so myself. 

REMINDER:  I'll be selling new and used retired Stampin' Up stamps, inks, papers, tools--and other non-Stampin' Up items at the 3rd Annual Cropmania Fall Scrapbook Indoor Yard Sale on Sunday October 13.  Details below. Hope you'll come out and get some great deals!

  1. I really like that you didn't do the expected fall/Halloween card! THose flowers look great in Tangerine Tango and I think you did great with your coloring! Don't sell yourself short! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  2. Hi Kathy, I agree with Amanda. Kudos for "stepping outside of the box" and not doing a Halloween card with those colors provided. Also, I'm so jealous that I don't live in MD to attend what sounds like an AMAZING tag/craft sale weekend!! Hugs, Super Stamp Girl #26

  3. Way to go in seeing beyond the obvious with these colors. I think they work beautifully in your card. I also love all of the texture you added with the paper piercing and multiple embossing folders. Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday!

  4. You've made a bright and cheerful card! Love the way you've used these colors in an unexpected way. Thanks for playing along with us at Fab Friday!
