Default CC557 WILD CHERRY SKY - OH MY!! (11/17/15)

HELLO Stamping Friends: Another Tuesday is here and time for our new color challenge.

First, let's reveal the favorite from last week. Vicki was our hostess and she chose celebrate the seasonby DJRants

Vicki said: I kept going back to this card -- "I love the use of colors and the card layout. Awesome card"!

Congrats DJ! Your card will be featured on our color challenge Pinterest board. See board here. The code to enter the badge to your blog is below.

Colors for today- WILD CHERRY SKY, OH MY! Which translates to:


Wild Wasabi
Cherry Cobbler
Soft Sky


Dessert - TO FUSS OR NOT TO FUSS?? Make TWO cards, with any stamps, FUSS with one, don't FUSS with the other…..tell us what comes natural to you, are you a FUSSY stamper or are you a SIMPLE stamper?

I tried this dessert on for size and you won't need to guess what my style is - I am definitely a FUSSY stamper,,,,cuz somehow I add just one more thing and it starts looking FUSSY. I tried to make a SIMPLE card, but both times it ended up FUSSY. Have fun with this dessert and don't forget to tell us what your style is!


Our stamping sample ladies for this week:

Karen 1
Karen 2
Vicki 1 and 2
Francie 1
Lee-Anne 1
Lee-Anne 2

CC557 Gallery

Please keep in mind, too, that while we list SU 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 CC557 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card!

Heart CC557 Cheerful Cup

love those colors! made a card using a paper pumpkin latte kit and added a red "skirt" from a recycled treat cup from a local open house. Finished with an aqua/red/green twine knotted tie for my paper clip. Here's Cheerful Cup

I colored this thing ... and I normally do not color things, but I love Karen's color choices always - and it just brings out the creative in me I guess. Thanks so much Karen!! Great choices today!

I have to admit I am a "simple stamper" although I really don't like that term because sometimes "simple" can be interpreted as "plain" or "not so unique" when in fact "simple" can actual end up quite symphonic and elegant... or fun and cheery. Most of the time I just want to create a card that I can literally get into the mail within the same hour or so of making it. When I get all fancy smancy, I tend to over think and over embellish and end up spending WAY too much time on one amazing card when I could have created several simple (but elegant or cheery) cards and gotten them out to several people instead of just one. That's just me

Well, Karen, I really, really tried...but today I am also a failure at "not fussy". Though this is not anywhere near as fussy as my first one, so I guess that's a win. Here's my Merry Moose. Thanks so much for looking!

I tried to change our my photo, not sure if this will work. Took my horse out of the sky and put him on the ground.
