CC384 Vanilla & Cherry Gumballs (7-17-12)
2 Attachment(s)
Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome to color challenge #384. I am your hostess this week.

Are you ready for some "vanilla & cherry gumballs"? I have chosen one of the new in-colors and paired it with a regal and a neutral.

Attached is a color swatch for you to match colors. Just in case you dont have the new in-colors as yet.

The colors for challenge 384:

very vanilla
cherry cobbler
gumball green

Attachment 253179 Click to enlarge

Dessert: With these colors, I thought a "Christmas in July" theme would be very appropriate. Can't wait to see all the beautiful cards in the gallery.

Our design team this week:

maryr917 (Mary Marsh) me!

artystamper (Julia Aston)

ravengirl (Toni Storie)

snowmanqueen (Carolyn Simonsen)

CC384 Gallery

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 CC384 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

Mary thanks for a great color combo. Here's my card.

hobbydujour 07-16-2012 09:06 PM

Lovely colors, Mary....and indeed, remind one of Christmas. I am not in the Christmas mood yet...and won't be for awhile. So I did a summertime card. I was in upper Michigan recently and the sweet cherries were in so I used that theme.


Biggan 07-16-2012 10:42 PM

Thanks Mary! No Christmas here...;)



Clownmom 07-17-2012 03:38 AM

I didn't have those exact colors, but I think mine are close enough. Thanks for the excuse to make another Christmas card, Mary!

What a gorgeous combo Mary!! I don't have the new colors yet - guess this will force me to get them.

Miss Boo 07-17-2012 06:32 AM

What color is the new gumball green closest to? I know there is a "swatch," but screens can alter colors. kwim?
old olive? kiwi kiss? garden green? wild wasabi? lucky limeade?

Nice Christmas colors - this gave me a chance to play with a couple of my new things from the upcoming SU holiday catalog : )

cjzim 07-17-2012 08:29 AM

Jen, I think Gumball Green is closest to Wild Wasabi - when I put the two side by side, Wasabi is just a touch lighter. HTH : )

Thanks for the challenge, I enjoyed doing it. tfl.


TrishG 07-17-2012 09:12 AM

This will be a great Christmas color combo - very popular I think.

I'm just not ready to start Christmas cards yet, so I opted to try these colors without a Christmas theme.

Thanks for another great color combo. I look forward to this challenge every week!

Thank you Mary for the fun challenge. I used wild wasabi instead of the green gumball. I hope it's a close match. CC384, Happy Holidays... by Luv Flowers - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

CC384 Vintage Thank You
needed a thank you card- used Jim Holtz' pocket watches EF, distressed the images a bit, and added a thank you from SU's Alphabet Soup. Here's Vintage Thank You

Thanks for the Christmas nudge, Mary. I feel cooler just having made my Manly Christmas card.

A great challenge thanks Mary. We won't have Gumball Green until next month, so I have substituted Garden Green. Here is mine.

Great colors, Mary. I predict this will be a winning combination for Christmas.

My first time in the color challenge--Love the combination! I did not have the exact colors but I got as close as I could...


Thanks for looking!

HeatherN_WA 07-18-2012 09:10 PM

This is my first time in this challenge. Is it okay if I made my card today before I even saw this challenge, and it just happens to be exactly what you are asking for? Great minds think alike.

Christmas Mojo in July

Actually I got my colors from my new SU DSP, Be of Good Cheer. ;)

Like the Christmas In July theme, Mary! My card -

love this color combo

here's mine

I didn't do a specific Christmas card, but I will have to pull out some Christmas stamps and try one. Mine is floral that could be used anytime, but it would be a great December card as well. Thanks for the fun challenge.

pamshobby 07-24-2012 09:10 AM

Here is my card ... Christmas in July. I also combined it with the sketch challenge 394.

Have a great day!
