Two Color Challenges, One Card

Happy Tuesday! I'm combining my two color challenges into one post this week since I made very similar cards for each one. I like when I can economize on my time crafting and these are cards that are simple to make and look great.  

The first one I made is for CAS Colours & Sketches this week.  The colors are Gray Granite, Flirty Flaming and Misty Moonlight.  I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do for the challenge but I'd just received these dies and hadn't used them yet so thought, "why not?".

The design is quite simple and I resisted the urge to add more flowers and some embellishments.  This is a "clean and simple" challenge!  Sometimes I have to keep repeating that to myself when creating.

I was so pleased with how it turned out I decided to make another in the challenge colors at Splitcoaststampers this week; Pear Pizzazz, Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody.

I did change it up a bit by turning the orientation and adding more flowers / foliage and "bling."  The dessert this week is to use a stitched die cut.  Technically these are "pierced" blooms, not "stitched" blooms, but I'm calling it good!

I used a sentiment from Band Together.  That set has three great sentiments.  I'll probably keep it forever and my friends will get tired of seeing them!

  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! Band Together
  • Dies: Stampin' Up! Curvy and Pierced Blooms
  • Ink: Gray Granite
  • Cardstock/Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Flirty Flamingo, Misty Moonlight, Mango Melody, Whisper White, Neutrals DSP
