CYCI#76 – Color Challenge

By | June 28, 2015

Hi there, how’s the weekend going for you? It rained here all day Saturday and there even was a tornado that touched down about 2 miles from our house. Happy to report no one was hurt, but quite a few trees and power line were taken down. They said winds where 65-80 miles per hour. Today the temperature may only hit around 60°, way to cold for the end of June. We have rain the forecast again almost all week, sure wish we could send this rain to the people out west who could really use it.

My card for today is for the CanYouCaseIt weekly blog challenge. Make sure to take a minute to pop over to their blog and see the great designs by their team and other crafters like myself.


This weeks challenge is using the 2015-2017 In-Colors (any combination) along with a neutral color. I decided to use a new stamp set I just received, Layered Letters Alphabets,  all the In-Colors, for my neutral I picked Sahara Sand.

To get started I used a 2″ wide strip of Whisper White and punched one end with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch. Next, using the bunch of flowers stamp from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set and Sahara Sand I stamped little flowers all over the tag. Using the In-Colors and the Layered Letters Alphabets I stamped the word ‘Hello’ in – Delightful Dijon – Mint Macaron – Watermelon Wonder – Cucumber Crush – Tip Top Taupe.  A nice way to get started with the new In-Colors is to purchase the In-Color 8.5″x11″ cardstock and Stamp Pad kit, of course you can also purchase them separately as well. For the card base I stamped the flower and leaves from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand on the front of the card. Tag is adhered with dimensionals and a piece of the new 1″ Dotted Lace Trim is looped at the end and tied with a piece of Metallic Gold Bakers Twine.  On the inside I stamped the same flowers from the tag all around the edges and using Cucumber Crush stamped Happy Birthday.
