Default CC617 -1/10/17 - OLD(lady)BLUSHES(while)PIROUETTING

HELLO my stamping friends!!

Before we get started on this weeks colors let's give a shout out to our favorite
from last week:

And the favorite was created by Echo Noble: Stand your Ground

And Mary said: "I like the image she used and her coloring of it-the swirly die cut background just reminded me of a windswept day." I have to say, I'm with Mary - this card is adorable!! The coloring is STELLAR. Here is your badge Echo: We will also feature your card on our Pinterest Board. See that here.




Our colors, for anyone who KNOWS me, will come as no surprise to you, as I can only go so long before I need a dose of pink and green. For this week we have:

OLD(lady)BLUSHES(while)PIROUETTING which translates to:

OLD OLIVE
BLUSHING BRIDE
PINK PIROUETTE






DESSERT FOR THIS WEEK - HOPE OF SPRING - which can be interpreted many different ways- as a SPRING THEME or as a HOPE THEME - or even better if you can combine a SPRING THEME with a HOPE THEME. USE YOUR IMAGINATION on this one!

And for your inspiration this week we have your designers:

ROBERTA

KAREN

BRENT

SANDIE

CC617 Gallery


Please keep in mind, 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 join in with us.

Please put CC617 in your keywords section. If you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate so we can find your card!

I don't often take part in the colour challenges, but these colours seemed just perfect for a card for a little 6 year old with cancer, who we are showering with cards in the teapot challenge today. My card: Fairy House

Oops - almost forgot that I wanted to play in this challenge - got home from work - took a LONG walk - made a grocery list - went out to water flowers that have started to poke up and that's what finally triggered the fact that I hadn't made my card yet . . . . so here it is:

Heart WT618 CC617 Tea-rrific card holder

had fun with this week's colors, re-purposing a striped gift card holder and adding my own eraser heart stamped image. Added a shadow treatment with green dp. Here's WT618 CC617 Tea-rrific card holder

Smile WT618 CC617 Leafy Note

Had fun making my own card out of lightweight foam with my leaf dies, then embossing the stamps. Kept it simple with this week's lovely colors and a bit of layering. Here's my card!

Well, I stretched the colors a little with some neutrals and also just couldn't make this little fairy anything but a blond. So here's my card:

Default Might be a stretch...

My shades are a little bit off, but this is the best I had. If you count the light pink card stock and the darker pink ink for the pig then its only the off Olive that I'm short on! Ha!
Made this card in combination with the Tea Pot Challenge this week sending out a card to a young girl battling cancer. If you missed that one it is a great opportunity to put a little love out in this world for a 6 yr old and her family.

Thanks for looking!

Here's my card Smiles and Laughter, just love these colours, forgot to mention that I had used Kaisercraft pearls and it is also hard to see that after stamping the greeting in Blushing Bride I over-stamped in Versa Mark and clear heat embossed.
