Make The Cards Challenge: Color Challenge

By | 05/24/2021

The new Make The Cards Challenge for this week is a color challenge!

I love this color palette.  There are just some color combinations that make my heart sing and this is one of them.  Plus, it was labeled as Citrus, so I went in search of a fruit stamp set.

I knew I had at least one, if not multiple stamp sets that are all about fruit.  I found a very cute Sunny Studios called Fruit Cocktail stamps and this is a layering set.

This is such a perfect stamp set and challenge for the approach of summer!

I pulled out my Catherine Pooler inks and just stared playing with different combinations.

Apple: Rouge, Rockin’ Red, Cranberry Fizz

Peach: Catching Rays, Tiki Torch, Tutti Fruiti

Pear: Catching Rays, Sauna, Limoncello

Leaves: Sage, Spruce

The apple lined up perfectly, but I had a bit of a challenge with that peach!  The pear wasn’t too bad and the leaves were easy!

There are lots of sentiments in this set that can be combined in a variety of was since each word is a separate stamp.  I kind of like that, although I did fuss with lining it up for a bit.

I added some nice Nuvo drops to finish off the card and a gray drop shadow in Copics W5, 2, 0.

I kept this as a nice simple single layer card that has a still life picture feel to it.  For some reason, I just found that appealing today!

We would LOVE to have you create a card and share it with us. You don’t need a blog, just post it to your Instagram or Facebook page and link it to our challenge blog.  I promise that we will leave you some comment love!
