Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi, ladies!  Again, y'all just amaze me with your talent!  The cards you created with last week's color challenge combo were just awesome!

This week, I went looking around in the STV galleries for a color combo that caught my eye.  I didn't have to go too far before I saw this little beauty by Miesje Flach:

Don't you just love those colors together? I do!  :)  I just love how she paired together the two different shades of blue.  That darker blue just added a bit of depth to the card, don't you think?

SO, your challenge this week is to create a card or project using KRAFT, GREEN, and TWO SHADES OF BLUE.  ;)  You may use White or Ivory as your neutral color.


Now, here is my take on the color combo:

I chose to start with a "Kraft" base, then layered in "In the Navy", "Ocean Mist" and "Ivory".  I used my Martha Steward punch for the lace border and my Fiskars scallop punch for the border in Ocean Mist.  That beautiful dashed green ribbon is non other than a Gina K Designs Pure Luxury ribbon.  The leaves and butterflies are from Theresa Momber's "Hope Grows" stamp set and I used Nina Brackett's "Fanciful Tags" set for the sentiment.

Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag STVCOLORJANICE6. You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did!  In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE! Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking up something you've created before.


In order to be included in the random drawing for a free GKD stamp set, please create a new card (or project) for each challenge that you participate in. Using one card for multiple challenges is not permitted.  Also, please read the challenge specifications carefully as only those that follow the challenge closely will be put into the drawing for the prize. Thanks!

You have until next Sunday, October 17th, at 8pm CST, to upload your sample. One winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at $24.95 or less! 

Looking forward to seeing your creations this week! :)


You can find all the projects entered for the challenge here: STVCOLORJANICE6
