Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Good Morning, everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend!  I can't believe my time as Color Challenge Hostess is at an end!  Can 13 weeks really have gone by this fast??? I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you who played along with my challenges over the last few months!  You have no idea how much I've enjoyed seeing all your wonderful creations!  You've truly inspired me and I hope you have had as much fun as I have!


For my last challenge, we are going to do something a little different.  Red, orange, yellow, pink, green, blue, purple, brown and black.  If you are at least my age (not telling how old that is!!!!), you might think I am referring to one of the very first boxes of Crayola crayons (and no, I was not born in 1903!).  Actually, it is a list of all the colors I've featured in the color challenges during my tenure.  I've put them together in many different combinations.  Now it is your turn!  Your color challenge for this week is to use as many of the colors in the list above as possible on your creation.  I want to see at least four, but I know you can do even better than that if you give it a try!


Here is my card with lots of colors:



I used all the colors in the list except purple somwhere on my card!  See how easy it is?  I stamped a single strawberry from the Enjoy The Sunshine Stamp TV kit with Memento Tuexdo Black and colored it with Copic markers.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the kit directly onto the DP panel.  The CS base is Pure Luxury Red Hot and the DPs are from the October Afternoon Fly A Kite and Thrift Shop pads.  The buttons are from Gina's Turquoise Mix Button Jar


Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag stvcolorcs13. 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, August 29, 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! 

Can't wait to see all your colorful creations this week!  Good luck!

You've done a great job on the challenges Carla. I have enjoyed trying to use some of your color combos and found that I was pleasantly satisfied with how they came together.
