BLOGGERS CHALLENGE #157 - COLOR CHALLENGE KIWI, BLUE & WHITE

Hello! I am back to my (new) normal routine. We went out of town for a few days and had a FUN time. We went to a water park and I even had a chance to RELAX and read. I packed some stamping things, but did not do a lick of it!

This week for the Bloggers Challenge, we were challenged to use Kiwi, Blue and White.  I made three cards, but I am sharing two today. I got on a roll! I will share the other some time this coming week.



As an avid paper crafter, I am sure YOU NEVER do this... but I have purchased a TON of stamps in the past several years and have rarely used a few of them. Now that I am no longer a SU demo, I find that my SU stamps are collecting dust, as beautiful as they are... so today I decided to pull a few out and use them. I have had this Seashell stamp for maybe 2-3 years? I haven't found much inspiration to use it... so today I LOOKED and found this card and "cased" the general design of it and used the color challenge and created a birthday card for a friend of mine today.

This next card uses To Have and To Hold from SU as well.


Tomorrow, I will share a card using QKR STAMPEDE and some Cosmo Cricket paper that I have had lying around.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great weekened!!!

Chrissy,

I'm not a beach person but I am always drawn to shells. This is so soft and perfect -- a fabulous color combo for this set -- it's just beautiful!

Very nice job! The colors are perfect. Soft and comforting.

Both cards are beautiful! I really wish Kiwi would have made it back into the core colors! I love the texture on the first card and the scallop on the second is so pretty and soft!

I love both of your cards Chrissy, although the sea shell one really grabs me. I really like the shade of blue that you used too.
