Two Cards with One Color Challenge!

Hi Stampers! 

I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend! 

Before I could concentrate on creating my swap card for an upcoming quarterly demo meeting held by my upline, I decided to create a few cards using the colors from this week’s ColourQ CQC112 Challenge (the second card was created for JAI95 “Bah-Humbug” Christmas Challenge).  

Again, if you have a chance, stop by and visit the above challenge sites to check out the gorgeous Design Team Samples along with all of the other entries- such wonderful inspiration! 

To create the first card:

Cut a piece of cardstock from Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso and adhere to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Stamp the scroll image from Creative Elements with Versamark™ ink and heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder.  Attach the 5/8” Whisper White Satin Ribbon bow, layer into an embossed panel (using the Finial Press EF) and add the sentiment.  Quick and easy!

Stamp Sets:  Creative Elements, Blessings from Heaven

Ink: Versamark®, Cherry Cobbler

Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder, 5/8” White Satin Ribbon, Large Oval Punch

The second card was created with the CQC112 colors and with the Just Add Ink JAI95 “Bah-Humbug” Christmas Challenge in mind- create a Christmas project but with NO Christmas Paper, No Christmas Images (Christmas Sentiment allowed). 

 To create this landscape card:

Mask the hill area and sky using cardstock or repositionable note paper- sponge Daffodil Delight for the center of the sun area.  Remove the sky mask and place a mask over the sponged sun area.  Sponge Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler over the sky area and drag a bit over the sun (once you remove the mask). 

Ink the tree images with Early Espresso and stamp the line of trees for the background.  Stamp the large tree with Versamark™ and heat emboss using Stampin’ Emboss® Dark Brown Embossing Powder (retired).

Spray the panel with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint spray, round the corners and attach the 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon bow (retired). 

Adhere to an embossed panel (use the Big Shot™ with the Snow Burst Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder), mount the sentiment and finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Lovely As A Tree, Short & Sweet

Ink: Versamark®, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Whisper White

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Snow Burst Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Brown Embossing Powder (retired) , 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon (retired), Large Oval Punch, Medium Oval Punch, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Sponge Daubers

Thanks again for stopping by- I appreciate all of your encouragement and if you have time, let me know which card you prefer (I like the landscape card better).

I hope all of you have a blessed Sunday and have fun creating!
