StampTV Color Challenge #10 and Our Creative Corner Challenge

Here are my submissions for the StampTV Color Challenge #10 and Our Creative Corner Color challenge. The colors this week from Stamp TV are black, white and one other color. OCC's color challenge is using our favorite color combo. It just so happens that mine is black, white and one other color. I use it all the time. I love the simplicity and elegance of it.

One drawback about this fave color combo is my SU Basic Black pad is not that great, so I redo my stamping quite often because of smears and uneven tones. I've been very disappointed with it. I can't wait to get my hands on Memento Tuxedo Black. I have heard so many great things about it and how much better it is than SU's. I just ordered mine from GinaK, but it's waiting for me in CA :-(. I didn't want it to be sent here since we will be back in the states in about a month. In fact, I have lots of GinaK goodies waiting there, including the amazing Pure Luxury Cardstock, which now comes in Chocolate Kiss.

I used Garden Delight from Inkadinkadoo for the silhouette flowers for both cards. I just {heart} them, esp because I paid less than $6 for the set at Joanns. I don't know if you've also noticed how I love my SU slit punch. I wish they'd make a large scallop border punch like this.

For Card #1, the other color is PTI's Aqua Mist.


For Card #2, the other color is SU's Cameo Coral. I made this for a friend who wanted personalized note cards. The name label was printed on the computer and punched. The button is PTI's Melon Berry and it matches the paper very well.

  4. In a word Beautiful! I love them both and I agree with you. I wish Stampin' Up would make the bigger scallop punch. I have a few suggestions from you that I'm going to pass along!
