Stamp with Us Challenge #3

A very quick post today but it will probably turn out longer than expected.... Firstly, Stamp With Us this week have provided a colour challenge...I love colour challenges, I used to do Kristina Werner's and made her top tep on a few occasions too. Anyway I'm not going to dither on - I'll cut to the chase and show you what I've done.... Recipe: A True Friend stamp set Choc chip, close to cocoa & creamy caramel for the colours White EP Vintage brads (love 'em) Choc chip ribbon linen thread Button Latte. Close to Cocoa DSP ... and this was the inspiration. I've also completed a card for 'The More the Merrier Challenge' - well two actually as I did the first one a little bit wrong. My very best bud Karen has organised a few of us to do a monthly challenge. Karen set the first one and it's to use no more than 4 colours, no riboon, one embellishment and one stamp...actually I've just realised....I used two....doh! Oh well...lol The first one wasn't Birthday and I wasn't sure on the colours as they are very autumnal.... ...and the second, well now it's daylight I'm not sure I like the colour combo on that either...Oh dear, sorry Karen. As my school report used to say - 'I must try harder' Recipe: Fresh Cuts Stamp Set, 1st Card:- Choc Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Very Vanilla Colours Half Pearls from the Pretties Kit Earth Elements Marker pens Scallop & Large Oval Punches 2nd Card:- Sincere Salutations Stamp Set Cameo Coral, Basic Black, Green Galore Whisper White Colours Vintage Brads in Black Tea Party DSP Oval & Large Oval Punches Teeny Tiny Circle Punch My first day of work went ok yesterday, spent most of it sitting in a telephone queue to the utilities..... Tut! Off to work now though and it's going to be alot more manic today....I'm clearing out my husbands office a.k.a. THE DUMP! lol Have a good one! Jo :)

I especially like your cupcake challenge card. That has to be one of my favourite stamp sets. And who says you can only use Autumn colours in Autumn? Then everyone will be using them. Sara xx
