Default CC275: Barely Mellow Red!

It is time for another SCS Color Combo Challenge! I must say I was quite surprise to find out this trio of fabulous colors had never been done before. Okay, I was more than surprised. Alittle shocked, really! I just love these three hues together. I think the mellow moss and the barely banana are truly soft subtles to pair with the bold real red and neutral of choice! I think these colors are just fabulous and I can hardly wait to see what you do with them! The dessert option is a fun one! Happy Stamping!



CC275: Barely Mellow Red!

Barely Banana


Mellow Moss

Real Red

Neutrals White, ivory, chocolate, black


This week's dessert option: Embellished frames! Seeing more and more where people are embellishing their die cut frames to add even more texture and dimension. Love this look. I have seen pearls, dew drops, gel pen dotting, unique stitching, faux stitching, stamped images, stickles...whatever! LOVE to see what you add to embellish your frames this week!


I asked Angie and Jacynthe to sample with me this week. Thanks so much, girls!

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 CC275 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!

I will be hosting the color challenges for the next few weeks. If there is a color combo you want to see using any of the new in colors, please pm me with the link to the card. Try to stay within three color choices. Thanks so much!

Fab colors, Betty! Lately when I think red, I think poppies. There are so many wonderful poppy stamps out there...new and old. I did another poppy card! Thanks for another great color challenge!

I like this combo, but I didn't have any Mellow Moss....used Wild Wasabi instead.

I love all three colors but yesterday I had a block and couldn't seem to get anything to come together. Some days are just like that! Today, things worked out better. Here's what I came up with.

True Friend

Red Lilies

Hope you like them.

This was harder than I thought it'd be. I had to go scrounging to find things that might be the right colors, but then I found some stuff that worked out just right! YAY!
