A Color Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me.  Today we have a color challenge.  I like color challenges because, well, they are a challenge! Sometimes, when one of the other amazing ladies in this group gives us a color challenge, they are colors I don’t usually use.  That is good way for me to expand my use of color.  Here is the color challenge for today:

Luckily, these are colors I use so it wasn’t too hard for me this time.

Stampin Up Celebrate Sunflowers

You have probably noticed that I have been doing a lot of strips (whether diagonal, vertical or horizontal) in my cards lately.  I love the clean look of them.  This time I decided I wanted to try a technique that an Australian Demo, Kylie Bertucci posted.  Well, actually her husband, Bruno did the video but Kylie is the actual Demo.  I am not sure what it is called, but I thought it was fun.

It is super easy to make this card.  You just have to randomly cut various pieces of cardstock at an angle.  It doesn’t matter if they are all the same size so some of mine are thicker than others.  The only thing you have to do is space them evenly apart.   I used Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green and Crushed Curry.  I adhered these pieces onto a Basic Black cardstock.

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Celebrate Sunflowers which is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2020/2021 Annual Catalog.

Let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy did with these colors.  This is my favorite part of the bi-weekly challenges we do together.

  1. Oh man I love this technique and you have made a stunning card. It is perfect for this color combination. I also love the fact that you made it portrait rather than landscape
