Colour Q Challenge #52

Hi everyone! I have a submission for the Colour Q challenge #52 tonight. It's a different challenge, combining a sketch and a previous color combination. I must admit, I found this sketch a bit of a challenge in itself. The color combination I chose actually helped things move along. Before I go on and on about it, here's the sketch and the color combination I chose for this challenge.


I just got my Embrace Life stamp set from Stampin' Up today. I instantly wanted to use it on the card I was making today. Aren't these flowers just sweet? I actually borrowed a technique I learned from Nance over at Canopy Crafts. Thanks Nance! I inked my embossing folder with Versamark before I ran it through the machine. The color difference is very subtle but I like it a lot. I tried to keep it simple but sweet. :)


Cardstock - kraft, vintage cream (PTI), black, peach (Paper Company)
Patterned Paper - Lush (My Mind's Eye)
Stamps - Embrace Life (SU), Damask Designs (PTI)
Others - Fancy Tags (Spellbinders), pearls (Recollections)

I know I promised to make some flowers tonight, but I'm just so tired that I couldn't make any. Perhaps if I have time tomorrow I can make some for you ladies. A friend of mine actually encouraged me to start making more flowers to sell over at Etsy. I'm not so sure about it just yet. I don't know if there's a market for it since there are Prima flowers everywhere and they're very easy to get. And I'm not so sure if I have the patience to make that many flowers! Hee! :) Let me know what you ladies think ok? Thanks! Good night all!!!


  1. This is so PRETTY! GREAT tip with the embossing folder! LOVE that new stamp set you used!

  2. What a beautiful card, Jean! Thanks for playing the ColourQ challenge this week.

  3. Very pretty! I love the way you popped up the flowers and added some sparkle to the tips. Did you notice you inspired my purchases again by using these Fancy Tags?!

  4. Such a pretty card Jean. Love the colors you picked. :o)

  5. Jean, I couldn't see your email address anywhere, so I must leave the info here.
    The stamp that I used for the background on my Curtain Call entry is from Rubber Stampede, and is called Crackle Background.
    Thank you and hugs!
