CC77: cool ribbon
So this challenge was suggested by mocjen. It was inspired by a card by tayloredexpressions. I had been inspired by this card to dye and ENTIRE roll of white SU grosgrain different colors in 2 yd segments. Aside from learning that you should wear rubber gloves to do this, I am thrilled with the results. I hope you are as inspired by this card and color combo!


marigold morning or apricot appeal

cranberry crisp or rose red

cool carribbean or bashful blue


Please put CC77 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!

As always, I am open to suggestions for future color challenges! Please pm me if you have one. Including a sample is always appreciated! I will probably not respond, as I get several, but I save them for future reference!

WOOT!! That's my card! :)

But the credit must go to Trudee for the color combo. She inspired my card! :)

Could you post substitute colours for those of us that don't have all the "new" colours please?!

tennisrules 08-28-2006 08:17 PM

Wow! I've never been this early! :rolleyes:
I'm so excited, I'm getting the new colors tomorrow! :p Thanks for the challenge!

Angela R. 08-28-2006 08:18 PM

supah colors, but i don't have marigold yet!!! would apricot make a good sub?? thanks again for the SCC!!

stampin-sunnychick 08-28-2006 08:19 PM

I LOVE these colors...But I am with J-Bo, I am not fortunate enough to have them just yet. :(

Mona Lisa 08-28-2006 08:19 PM

Would tempting turquoise, bravo burgundy and apricot appeal be closest?

raduse 08-28-2006 08:26 PM

Oh yeah!!! Really cool colors Emily. I'm all over this one.

stampin-sunnychick 08-28-2006 08:28 PM

Sounds good to me...Is that acceptable Em? (bet she is long gone by now)...

Thanks for the cool challenge, I have been wanting to dye some ribbon too, so here is my chance...wow two new things for me this week and it is only Monday night!

rhondag 08-28-2006 08:38 PM

Dumb alert.........So is the challenge just the colors? Or are we to dye ribbon too? (I have no re-inkers yet) TIA!

dawnmercedes 08-28-2006 08:42 PM

I hope to have some time tomorrow! I'll have to dream up a good idea so that the stamping part of my day goes by quicker!

beautiful combo...can't wait to play...later ;)

Babsnelson 08-28-2006 09:19 PM

I'm going to have to do some major substituting here - don't get some of my new colors til Wednesday. Cool challenge - and I love the samples!!

rosowskimom 08-28-2006 09:28 PM

Thanks for posting early Emily! I love these colors together and I'm not tired yet, so I threw together a card from some left-over m&t kits.

cindy501 08-28-2006 09:41 PM

Emily, Ditto on the thanks for posting early. I wasn't sure I would have time to play tomorrow so I was just working on the envelopes and inside of some christmas cards while I was stalking and just happened to check the challenge and there it was. I just had to keep a few things out and try it. It's a little basic and looks much better in real life but it was the first time I used my Iridescent Ice Embossing powder which I've been dying to use since I got it a month ago. Thanks for looking.

Thanks so much for posting early, Emily! I love having time to do these before I leave for work!

Vicky Gould 08-29-2006 04:15 AM

Pammyrn sent me this wonderful Penny Black stamp - which I love, love, love!!! Thanks again, Pam. Anyway, I thought it would be perfect for this color challenge. Hope you like it too!


notimetostamp 08-29-2006 04:20 AM

Oh, you ladies are just killing me here today -- I just got all that new paper and ink, and I have new stamps -- and I have guests sleeping in my stamp room -- what a predicament!!!! I'll try (very hard) to do a quick card if they leave this afternoon for a bit!!! I'm chomping at the bit -- your cards so far are GORGEOUS -- love these colors!!!

notimetostamp 08-29-2006 04:22 AM

Oh, yes, Emily, thanks so much for posting early -- I didn't realize you were posting earlier -- love these early posts (when I'm able to stamp)!!! Thanks!!!

stampertammy 08-29-2006 04:22 AM

Yeah! I got it done before leaving for work! Thanks again Em, for posting early! I cheated and used mustard grosgrain, because I didn't have time to dye ribbon and let it dry. Thanks for looking!

Another cool color combo! Thanks here's my first one

pammyrn 08-29-2006 05:32 AM

Now I feel like the silly one. I can not find the instructions of how to dye the ribbon. only to use rubber gloves. Hummmm that could be interesting.

star 08-29-2006 05:55 AM

I am soooooo determined to stamp today!!! (lucky for me....I HAVE to make two cards for this weekend!!!hehe).:( I don't have ANY of the new colors....so I will have to make due with the old. Thanks Emily for another great combo!!!! BBL (got to get everyone out the door for school first!!)!!!
