Best Wishes – Color Challenge

Best Wishes Color Challenge wwDSCN6186.jpg


Join us this fortnight over at Perfectly Rustics for Design Challenge No. 50 – Colour Combo. For this challenge, we are to use three Stampin’ Up! colors (Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Smoky Slate) to create our project. Equivalent colors in different products and neutrals are allowed! (

The stamps I used for this project came from the Gina K Designs “Fleur de Lis” and “Birthday Blessings” sets.

The butterflies were heat embossed with versamark ink and Recollections “Snow” embossing powder. The greeting and flowers were stamped with Gina K Ocean Mist ink (substitute for Stampin’ Up Pool Party), and the leaves were stamped with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint distress ink (substitute for SU Pear Pizzazz). With a sponge dauber, I applied a bit of Memento London Fog ink (substitute for the SU Smoky Slate) over the white embossed butterflies and around the edges of the white panels.

My white stamped panels were mounted on Stampin’ Up Smoky Slate card stock.

Measurements for my panels:  (2″ x 3 1/4″), (3″ x 4 1/4″), (4″ x 5 1/4″),  and the mats:  (2 1/4″ x 3 1/2″), (3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″) and the card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″)

I’ve done triple stamping before, but I had never used multiple colors or the emboss-resist technique for my focal images.  I was inspired to do so on this project after viewing THIS video tutorial.

Now it’s your turn!  Create a project using these colors, and share it over at Perfectly Rustics  I can’t wait to see what you create!

Thanks for checking out my card project!

  1. Lisa, this is so stunning. I would love to play but not sure that will happen. Little one is in an ornery mood today. LOL
