CC267: Basic Appealing Shadows!
This color combo came about because apricot appeal and sage shadow are two colors that are retiring from the SU color groups. Then, I saw these two colors paired with a basic gray on a dp and thought they had some potential together! I really love it! Hope you do! Happy Stamping!

CC267: Basic Appealing Shadows

Basic Gray

Apricot Appeal

Sage Shadows

Neutrals: white, ivory, black, or kraft

This week's dessert option: Lace! I am starting to see a big trend toward lace or crochet trim. Whether it is actual lace or lace stamps, it seems that lace is everywhere! You can add real cotton lace, lace stamps, lace border punches or lace shapes. Or, if there are other forms of lace, please share! If lace is in the name, it is lace!

I asked Lynn and Mary 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 CC267 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!

Wow! I already had these colors and dp out from a class card for Saturday. I needed a masculine b'day card so you gave me a good kick in the butt to get it done! http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=113844

Well, I went ahead and made two since I had to stamp the chef's clothes twice...

stampercamper 04-20-2010 04:42 AM

Great...and different! Color Combo! Here's mine...


NANCYRUTH 04-20-2010 04:50 AM

never woulda thought of these colors together in a million years and I am so glad you did!!! Thanks Betty! MY CARD!

Vicky Gould 04-20-2010 05:26 AM

Interesting colors, Betty. No apricot, so I used Basic Grey paper.

Here's my:

Chicken Scratch

Thanks for looking and/or commenting. Have a great day!

great challenge.... I hope i get to play later!

Jerri Kay 04-20-2010 06:05 AM

Hey girls, I just uploaded pics of a project that I've been working on. My colors were very close, I used Mango (which is very close to Apricot Appeal), Moss Green, White and Black. To be fair to the rules (since I didn't use the exact colors of the challenge), I did not place the gallery code in the keywords to place it in this gallery. If you'd like to see my designs, here's a link.


A fabulous challenge Betty!

lutheran 04-20-2010 07:53 AM

Thanks for another great combo -- it's fun to use some of these colors for the last time (they will, however, have to pry Sage Shadow from my cold, dead hands to get me to stop using it!).

Sunshine and laughter
Here is my try! I tried to match colors as closely as possible. The scanner doesn't do the coloration justice though.


artystamper 04-20-2010 05:34 PM

I don't always do well when told what colors to use! but I worked it in today! and I even got the lace in! http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=93535
