Default CC642 - Tranquil Silver Pools (7/4/17)

Good Tuesday Morning, Color Lovers! It is my pleasure to be your hostess again this week! We have some festive colors for you, but first, let's celebrate our favorite from last week.




Karen was our hostess, and she chose Birthday Balloons by Toni aka ravengirl.

Karen said, "I love how translucent these balloons are, and the soft sky background really sets them off."


Congratulations, Toni! 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.


And now, back to our challenge. This week's colors are:

Tranquil Tide
Silver
Pool Party



This week's Dessert Option is "Christmas in July." This is a great opportunity to get a jump on your Christmas cards!

And since it's a new month, we have the pleasure of having two amazing designers join us in the Color Challenge in July. We are pleased to welcome Heather aka justampin' and Linda aka bubblestx4. Heather was the favorite from CC610 and Linda was the favorite from CC606.

Here are some samples to inspire you:

Barbara aka bejoyce, Card

Barbara aka bejoyce, Gift Box

Pam aka Pam MacKay

Heather aka justampin'

Linda aka bubblestx4, card

Linda aka bubblestx4, gift tags

CC642 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 CC642 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card!

Beautiful combination of colors. I should use embossing powders more. Here's my card, no dessert this week.

tranquil silver pools-- the name suggests mercury (danger!) or harry potter unicorn blood (danger! danger!!). How my mind works. Anyway, here's my Christmas in July card: CC642 blessings

Default CC642 by your side

I went with an ocean scene, using a reverse die for my stencil "window" (thanks M.E.!) and adding some texture with 4 fabric strips overlapping each other. Background is my DD's socks project from a favorite yarn store in Anacortes, Washington. Here's by your side

A day late... I finally made a card that's been hanging around in my head since I bought the stamp last year. Serendipity that it fits a color challenge - who knew that could happen? It's here: Toast by gregzgurl - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I'm getting my card in just before the new colors come out. I didn't do Christmas as I needed a summer birthday card for my daughter in law.
