H2H Challenge: Oooh, Pretty Colors

It's Monday again and that means only one thing around here...another H2H Challenge for you to play along with! This week we have another trio of pretty colors to create with.

Smiley from See, I told you.

And at the risk of tainting your creative juices, all I could think of when I looked at these colors were big, mouth-watering berries.

My problem came when I searched my stamps for an appropriate set and came up with nothing.
Not a berry in sight. Smiley from What was I to do? Then I thought about all the great stamp sets we got at Convention a couple of weeks ago. There was one in there that had a quote I really, really liked. I don't think I've made a card with just the sentiment as the focus...ever. But it worked for this one. Here it is:

Stamps: CTMH The Present (available Sept. 1)
Inks: CTMH Grey Wool, Vineyard Berry, Blush, Creme Brulee
Papers: CTMH Veranda Reflections Kit, Emporium Creative Basics, Grey Wool, Blush, Colonial White

I used some Creme Brulee ribbon as a final touch. Pretty simple, but I really liked it. I showed it to my boys to get their opinion. I don't know what I was expecting, but it sure wasn't the giggles they gave me. When I asked if they liked it, they said "Sure we do! It's a Kung Fu Panda card!"Smiley from

(For those of you that do not have kids under 10 in your home, one of the characters uses this same quote.)

So now that I know my card pleases adults and children, I can call it a day.

As this is my last week as a DT member, I also wanted to say a big Smiley from to Mary for the wonderful work she's done creating the H2H Challenge blog! It was so fun being a part of it and sharing my creations with everyone.

I want to congratulate all the new DT members coming aboard. They are another group of inspiring ladies, let me tell you! I can't wait to see what they share with us over the next couple of months.

And to all my fellow DT members...

  1. Beautiful card. I love how you stamped the sentiment in different colors, really makes it pop.

  2. This is one crafty I have not gotten into, but I must say your card that you used those colors on is beautiful. When I first saw the three colors I didnt know what to think, as by themselves I was not too hip on the colors, but the way you put the card together they show very well. I will be back for more color inspiration!! Thank you
