Welcome on over from Helen's blog! I know you enjoyed her design! So colorful this week!
We are working down our challenge to the new catalog colors!! This week includes colors that were/are current!!! Gotta love gray! It's the new black so they say! lol  I'm also piggy-backing the SUO challenge this week!!!
So this week's challenge is Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, Old Olive OR Basic Gray, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie
I really like how the first group make me think summer! Well Melon Mambo always makes me think summer!!! 
I actually did 2 different cards for this week! I had one done, but then I needed a wedding card so decided to go non-traditional with that! Scroll down for that SUO Wedding Card challenge!!!

So here's the first this week's card:

I had some fun with my Secret Garden stamp set and Framelits!!! I had some Melon Mambo Embossing Powder so had to use that too! 
I used the "stamping off" technique to stamp on the Whisper White. I didn't want the flowers to be too gray! I think it gives a kind of soft affect! It's just  pretty all-occasion card!

No matter what setting I took this photo on the gray looks somewhat purple!!! It totally isn't in real life!!! Interesting!

I can't wait to get my new Magnetic Platform! It's on its way!!! It should make placement for all my Framelits so much easier!!
Here's a really cool video that shows how to use it:

Now, here's the 2nd this week's card:

I made a 5 1/2" square card because I wasn't mailing it! I used the May Birthday stamp set-it's all babies, weddings & anniversaries! A very versatile set!!! 
These colors actually make a pretty wedding card!!!  
Here's a couple of close ups-first of the image, then second of the Clay Button I made with my new molds & clay!!! First one I've used on a card!!

So hope you like all the fun colors this week!!!

Head on back to our fearless leader Robbie's blog & have a great time enjoying her beautiful design!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!

  1. Love the colors and the use of the larger card size!! The embossing folder and the clay button are the perfect accents to this beautiful wedding card- thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges!!
