Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi everyone!  Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you are enjoying a nice long weekend!  I am so excited to be the hostess for the Color Challenge for the next three months!  Today is my first challenge and I hope you'll be inspired to play along!  Before I start though, I want to thank Tina for all the fun Color Challenges these last 3 months!  I'm sure you will agree she did a fabulous job inspiring us!  Thanks, Tina!


OK.  On to my first color challenge for you.  Today's colors are chocolate, green and ivory.  I love this color combo!  Here is my sample card using Nina's new sets, Fine Furnishings and Fine Furnishings Additions:



I used Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown, Green Apple and Layering Weight Ivory for my card.  The patterned paper is from October Afternoon Fly A Kite pad which is now available in Gina's store.


Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag stvcolorcs1. 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.

You have until next Sunday, June 6th, 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!

I hope you play along!  I can't wait to see what you do with the colors!

You can find all the projects entered for the challenge here: stvcolorcs1
