Stamp TV May Color Challenge

This month Carolina from Stamp TV has challenged us with a Color Challenge provided by Miejse.  The colors she wants us to use are a non-Christmas red and green card with a neutral color Black, White or Tan.

If you have come from Kay's blog, you are right on track.  Her card was gorgeous!  The beginning of the hop starts here at Stamp TV.

This is my card:
 For this card I used Stamp It Big, made some more washi tape from GKD Designer Papers called Hello Sunshine, Sun Kissed Autumn, Wisteria Lane, and a few unknown scraps.  Then I stamped the sentiment Friends onto Gina K Designs Pure Luxury White layering cardstock and backed this onto Black Onyx which I layered onto GKD heavy duty cardstock.
For this card, I used the stamp set called Poster Board Sentiments and the DP is from Merry Little Christmas, Cranberry Tart cardstock and  I used GKD Dark Sage Ink and Dark Sage cardstock - this is a gorgeous color!

Now hop on to Geri's blog and she will certainly wow you with her copic coloring.

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, May 28.

Thank you for stopping by my blog!

LOVE your home made Washi Tape, you're so clever, looks great with that big bold stamp too! And your 2nd card is AWEsome, those are great shades of green and the layout is wonderful--may even borrow it--could make a great graduation card! TFS!!!

Ronda Ellis said...

The very different colors on the friend card made me think of the diversity in the personalities of my friends, and the encouragement one, what's not to love and who doesn't need encouragement? Gorgeous!

Cards By Betty said...

A very nice take on the colors and your choice of patterned paper

What a good way to use scraps on an angle! Very attractively done. Also like the darker green of the second card, giving it a more sophisticated feel. Lovely cards!

Marcia Gray said...

Love both cards!! The first one is so bright and happy...the second one is just perfect! Love the sentiment :-)Great job!

Dodge3670 said...

Now that is perfection. How did you get the paper strips so straight? Hmmm...I have a long ways to go and a lot to learn yet. I just love the layering on the second card. Great Job! Thank you for sharing!

I love the angle design of the focal image, and the ability to use scraps of prints and card stock.

Both of your cards are so pretty. I really washi tape you made and how you angled each one. I like the sentiment on the second card - good for us all to remember this.
