Hello again, and welcome. Thanks for hopping on from Jane’s blog.
Those talented, experienced stampers of The Artful Stampers must really, I mean REALLY, love their stamping, and believe me, they don’t take their challenges lightly!
When I saw the banner for this week’s challenge – aye, aye, aye – how’s a newbie supposed to keep up with that? I have barely started my journey with Stampin’ Up! and none of these four colours – yes that’s right, FOUR COLOURS have made it into my collection.
But, I will not be defeated!!!
By swapping out these four colours for the closest I have in my small collection: Tip Top Taupe, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, and Watermelon Wonder; I am proud to show you what I’ve created this week (insert puffed chest and happy smile here). I do hope you like it.
Even though I have only been with Stampin’ Up! for a short while, I have been paper-crafting and card-making for many, many years. One thing that I have always done over those years, is to complete the inside of a card with paper for hand writing messages to the recipient; more often than not, including a computer generated greeting/verse – what I like to call “Hallmarking” my creations (you know, just like how all those expensive Hallmark cards have fancy pancy papers inside them). Here is a little peak of the inside of this week’s card.
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Butterfly Basics, Guy Greeting, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Happy Birthday Everyone (hostess set)
Card and Paper: Tip Top Taupe, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White
Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Watermelon Wonder
Accessories: Computer/Copy Paper
Well, I can hardly believe you came back to visit with me again. Please hop on over to see what Alison has been up to with this week’s challenging colours. And don’t forget to come back again soon!
