Simply Stampin' Challenge #62 - Colour

For the challenge this week at Simply Stampin's Challenge I decided to have a go at making a card with a rectangle aperture.  This was done using the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" square punches from Stampin' Up.

The colour challenge is to use the following colours:

When I saw this colour combination, I had serious doubt as to whether I could create a card that was not too in your face, but I guess that what a challenge is all about.  The stamp sets used are Just Believe, Nature Walk and Teeny Tiny Sentiments from Stampin' Up. 

The Very Vanilla top piece has been embossed using the Finial Press embossng folder, this has been layered onto a piece of Tangerine Tango DSP and then adhered to the Cherry Cobbler base card.

The butterfly from the Nature Walk stamp set was coloured with Stampin' Write Markers.  I needed to bring the Tangerine Tango into the card and decided that a little touch of this colour on the wings of the butterfly would work okay.

A piece of Tangerine Tango DSP has been punched with the Scalloped Edge Border Punch and adhered to the bottom of the Very Vanilla inside the card.


  1. Very pretty! Love all the clean vanilla - really makes the colours pop and shows off the embossing wonderfully! Thanks for joining in the SSC! xx
