Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 1



Hi Stampers! Here is the brand-new Curtain Call Color Challenge! I'm loving my new tamplate designed by VeROCKina (Veronica) at VK Design Company. For the Curtain Call Color Challenges, anything goes! The Jewelry Color Inspirations were a blast, but now I can still use jewelry as inspiration, or I can switch it up and use other things like bedding, clothing, furniture...you name it! Feel free to send me your ideas, too!

I think that I'm in a monochromatic mood, so for Act 1, I chose a bedding collection called Marimekko ® Lehtimaja from Crate & Barrel...so clean and crisp...gorgeous!

To play along in the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 1, simply create a papercrafted project using these Stampin' Up! colors (or similar shades from other companies), post it on your blog or other public gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Paper Craft Planet, etc.) using the keywords Curtain Call, link your posting back here, and then come back to enter your name and URL in the Mr. Linky box. You have until Sunday at noon (CST) to enter your project.

I will once again be picking my FAVORITE Curtain Call Color Challenge submission who will be announced as the Curtain Call Show Stopper at the end of the week!



The ones who are chosen as a Show Stopper will receive this award to post on their blog and share the exciting news! I will be picking more than one Show Stopper each week depending on the number of entries there are. There will be awards given out for every ten Curtain Call Color Challenge entries!

Without further ado...here's my inspiration card. The pattern on the bedding led me right to the Embrace Life stamp set. I heat embossed the Night of Navy flower with white embossing powder, cut it with my snips, and threaded the Not Quite Navy ribbon from the center. With a little two-step stamping of the leafy image and some layering of cardstock, my card was complete. I can't wait to see what you all come up with...and please spread the word about the Curtain Call!







Stamps: Embrace Life
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy, Versamark
Other: White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Elementary Ribbon Originals, Stampin' Dimensionals

Stacey, I want to say a big thank you for making me use my Not Quite Navy. My Ink pad still had the cellophane on it. Shame on me. Loved the challenge and the colours. Will be using them again very soon.
