#TGIFC145 - Color Challenge

Hey everybody and welcome back to another midnight blog post! Well, it's midnight here in California anyways and it's time for another TGIF Challenge! This week we've got a color challenge for you and the colors are: Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum and Powder Pink! These are all colors that I never use so the color combo is outside of my normal range. No matter! I had fun with it anyhow! I used the new SAB set called Beautiful Peacock and stamped the tail feathers (two different stamps) in Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride. I stamped off every time so that the images would be lighter. Then I used the Glitter Embossing Paste and added some diamond shaped texture to my background. You just can't tell how pretty and shimmery it is in the photo. 

Next I layered some shredded ribbon, silver glimmer paper, die cuts, a vellum flag, silver metallic thread and my sentiment. I topped the card off with some rhinestones for a little extra razzle dazzle.

Oh! I almost forgot to tell you about the sentiment. People are always telling me how they just cut their stamps apart so they can do "this," or, "that" with them. My heart cries out in pain every time I hear one of these stories. I'm like, "You cut your stamps? You just cut them right up? With scissors?" Horrifying. You've probably already guessed by now that I've joined the dark side- I cut up two sentiments from the Happy Wishes stamp set in order to create an "I love you" sentiment. I even had to cut off an extra piece and I'm not sure if they'll ever go back together properly again... but, my card says, "I love you," and that's all I cared about in the moment. 

So, what do you think of this color combo? Have you used it before? Want to give it a shot? Join us for the fun over at this week's TGIF Challenges for #TGIFC145.

  1. YES!!! This card is amazing. Love the soft and sparkly feel. I also have a heart attack about cutting stamps. Not sure my deal but I rarely do it. I try my hardest to mask, etc. Sometime you need to cut.

    1. Thank you Charlet! My first time cutting a stamp-its still on the block bc I cut off a piece that's now gone missing and putting it back in the case without the missing piece will be be very tragic.

  2. What a cool and different way to use the Beautiful Peacock stamp set. I love all the layers!!! So, so pretty!!!
