Post CC634 Bye-Bye, So Long, Farewell (05-09-17)

Hello Color Challenge Fans! It's Tuesday and time for a new color challenge. #634 on the charts for us.

First, let's congratulate our fave from last week. Maura was our hostess and she this Daffodil Trio beauty from Irene aka DandI93.

Maura said: "I love Irene's trio of CAS cards! The sweet bouquet is so springlike and although all 3 cards are CAS with the same stamps, each card is unique and eye-catching in its own way. I particularly like the one with the die cut "mom" in the center of the bouquet"!

Congrats Irene! The code to add the badge to your blog is attached below, and your card also will be pinned on our Pinterest Challenge board. Check it out here.

Now onto this week's challenge. Did my title intrigue you just a bit? We are bidding a fond farewell to the 2015-2017 Stampin'-Up in-colors. Cucumber crush, delightful dijon, mint macaron, tip top taupe and watermelon wonder are headed off into the sunset. Off course this just makes room for the new colors.

So the challenge this week is to use 2, 3, 4, or all 5 colors to create your card or project. Of course you can use neutrals of white, back, brown or gray. Just don't add any colors not mentioned above. If you don't have these colors use what you have that is a close match.



cucumber crush
watermelon wonder
mint macaron
delightful dijon
tip top taupe


Dessert Option: create your own background- stencil, emboss, watercolor wash, gelli print etc. You get the idea.

Our color divas this week

Sample 2
Maura aka Beesmom
Marg aka Margscardcrazy
Pat aka Pvilbaum

CC634 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 play!!!

Please put CC634 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 CC634 Caravan Home

Yes, did a background for my "caravan- homeward bound"- re-purposing my Lawn Fawn Happy Trails stamped images- adding a sherbet orange half doily for my background, and a sea green tie for my brown tag. Used a direct to paper swipe technique for my sentiment background, and under my pull trailer. Here's Caravan Home- yes, we made it safely from Montana to Washington yesterday after moving DD out from college housing

A late entry but had to post it, I had so much fun doing this one and it was worth all the work, my 99 year old mum-in-law absolutely loved it. Mother's Day 17
