Color Challenge Tuesday

I'm on two challenge design teams and it is amazing to me that when there is a color challenge for both, the hostesses will pick very similar colors.  I suppose that there is some logical reason, like it's spring, so of course the colors chosen will reflect that.  But of all the colors to choose from...this week purple and green seem to be the ones!
This is for CAS Colours & Sketches.  Grapefruit Grove, Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green
These colors (orange, purple and green) are my favorites for Halloween, so I really had to resist making a Halloween card.  I chose this retired Stampin' Up! bunny and decided to give him a new twist.  I masked him and used two stamps, then I was able to cut out the image with my Scan 'n Cut.  I love being able to do that.
I had so much fun that I made two cards.
I used markers on acrylic blocks and a blender pen to "watercolor" my images.  And interestingly the Scan 'n Cut did not register both images the same.  It cut between the bunny's nose and the bird on one but not the other.
My next card is for the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers this week.  Gorgeous Grape, Pear Pizzazz and Highland Heather.
This is one of those cards that looks complicated but is not.  I used adhesive backed sheets on the back of the colored cardstock then ran them through the Big Shot with the bunny die.  It cut through the cardstock but not the backing sheet.  So all my little intricate pieces had adhesive on the back and were still stuck to the backing paper.  I ran the die through on white and glued the cut piece to a solid white panel.  From there it was just lifting off the colored cardstock and placing it in the appropriate hole.  It went much faster and was simpler than I had anticipated.

Stamps: Stampin' Up! Everybunny
Dies:  Simon Says Stamp Filigree Bunny, MFT Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Scallop Squares.

  1. These cards are gorgeous, Jeanne! I especially love the first one for esater.

  2. Ack - how did you get 3 cards! I'm in awe! And I love how none of them feel like you shoe-horned the colors into your design (something I struggle with).

  3. I love those adorable bunnies with the eggs! They're super cute and you colored them beautifully. The die-cut filigree bunny is really cool, too.
