Default CC440 strawberry pie at a delightful island party

Happy Tuesday and welcome to this week's color challenge. It's #440 on the charts for us. I am your hostess this week and decided to do something a little different.

Since I love working with bold colors, I am choosing 5 colors and you can pick 3 to work with or use all 5 of them. Just let us know which 3 you have chosen.

Are you ready for a strawberry pie at a delightful island party?

the colors for cc440


colourlovers.com-08-20-2013.jpg
(Click to enlarge)

Strawberry Slush

Pumpkin Pie

Daffodil Delight

Island Indigo

Pool Party


Dessert: Use a geometric shape for instance: a hexagon or the modern mosaic punches, or you could use a triangle, or a chevron. There are lots of dies out there.

Our design team this week:

Mary Marsh aka maryr917

Becky Egecrone aka beckyte

Robin Clendenning aka stamperrobin

Mary Walter aka octoberbabe

CC 440 Gallery


Please keep in mind, too, that while we list Stampin-Up colors for the challenges these are just color reference points. Use the closest colors you have. We want everyone to be able to play!!!

Please put CC440 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card! If you need help uploading click here

Heart CC440 Sweet Celebration

Mary- had to do another card, this time celebrating ice cream - used hot pink, yellow, orange, and seafoam green for my colors. Just some hand cutting, coloring and a fabric band (pajama waistband, repurposed!) Here's Sweet Celebration

I used a really old stamp set to go with a new sentiment and though it looks like I cheated, I only used today's colors, but mixed some colors together by scribbling marker onto acetate to add some brown and green tones.

Like the color combo, but huge time crunch in my week.

Hope this one isn't a cop out!

Thanks for the chance to play along!

I'm not sure my colors are exactly right, I think my blue is a little off, but I'm pretty sure the pink, orange and yellow are pretty close. I played with a new stencil today, I think I'm going to like these stencils.

Thanks so Much

Thanks for a fun challenge!
TFL!!

I love these colors...and I was able to use all FIVE! I chose the "similar to SU!", as I don't have ANY Strawberry Slush. I also did the dessert option with hexagons and triangles!

Here's my card Beach Babe for the Colour Challenge. My jaw dropped when I saw the colours (thanks Mary) but then my competative urge took over, and I just had to try it!

I let my DSP do all the work on this card and I also CASE'd the very talented "suen" for the design. Easy peasy and I love the results

Geometric Thanks

I created mine Tuesday but had to wait to upload until today. The twisted easel caused me a little more trouble than I bargained for. Fun color challenge!
