Color Challenge 11

Happy Wednesday Stampers! Sorry for the blogging hiatus, life has been a little chaotic the last couple of weeks for me. I am hoping that it is finally settling down a little bit and normalcy will come back. To get back in the swing of things, I thought I would play along with the color challenge over at this week. 

I thought these colors tended to direct me towards more of a masculine inspired card. I wanted it to be more playful than serious though. Hence, this is what came about -

I cannot get enough of arrows lately! I've been putting them on EVERYTHING it seems! The background consists of Summer Starfruit card stock stamped with the arrow from Hello, Lovely and Smoky Slate card stock texturized with the Chevron Embossing Folder and then everything punched out with our Postage Stamp punch. I had a little fun 'shortening' the Pacific Point framelit from the Apothecary Framelits. I also used the "hi" from the Label Thinlets set and die cut that out of Whisper White circle so the blue from the label behind could show through. The die cut arrows are also from the Label Thinlets. Can you guess what I stamped two of them with? The lined stamp from my dearly beloved Gorgeous Grunge stamp set!?! You KNEW I had to include that set somewhere on this creation! LOL  Happy Stamping!


  1. This is such a great masculine card. Love all the arrows and the way you created the background with textured and stamped squares. Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

  2. What a fun card! Love all the arrows, textures, punches, etc. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge this week!

  3. What a very fun card! I love how you created your background with the texture and stamps and then the punching! And what a great idea to use the grunge stamp to create your arrows! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!
