Curtain Call Color Challenge {ACT 26} & GIVEAWAY

This posting will remain at the top of my blog page until Friday night. Please scroll down to view newer posts.



I found this inspiration room photo called Yellow at Table Tonic, and I knew it would stir some creativity with it's chic & clean look. I've always loved the color yellow and I'm drawn to using it in many of my color combos! In fact, yellow was my very favorite color when I was a little girl...my bedroom was decorated in yellow Holly Hobby (yes, back in the 70's). Anyway, back to the challenge...the colors of choice are Whisper White, Basic Gray, Going Gray & Crushed Curry.

To participate in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 26...

1. Create a papercrafted (card, scrapbook page, or 3D) project using these colors or similar shades.
2. Post it on your blog or other public gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Paper Craft Planet, Stampin' Addicts, etc.) using the keywords Curtain Call 26 and make sure to include a link back here to the challenge.
3. Enter your name and the direct link to your project in the Mr. Linky box below.

Please note the new deadline will be Friday night: You have until Friday, April 23rd before midnight (CST) to enter your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 26 project.

Join us for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 26 and you could be one of the next Show Stoppers! We have two awards up for grabs plus a giveaway (details below)! Those chosen as "The Lead" and "Top 5" will receive an award to post on their blog(s) and share the exciting news!





Chic "On the Go" Giveaway



This little bundle of "on the go" items will be sent to a randomly chosen Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 26. There is a coordinating 5 X 7 Journal, a set of 12 mini notecards, and a package of facial tissues in this little chic "on the go" giveaway...a perfect trio to keep in the car or in your totebag.


Elements of Style Sneak Peek



The Summer Mini Catalog will soon be available (May 1st), so I thought I'd give you another little sneak peek. The sentiment and flourish image that are both stamped on the designer paper are from the Elements of Style stamp set. The borders are not punched ones, which you might think...they are pieces that were trimmed from the top of a Fancy Favor XL Bigz die cut.





Stamps: Elements of Style
Paper: Crushed Curry, Going Gray, Basic Gray CS, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP
Ink: Basic Gray
Other: Pretties Kit, Big Shot, Fancy Favor XL Bigz Die

The colors white, gray and black are normal for a condolence card.
With Curtain Call Color Challenge colors are those given. Yellow is an encouraging one at that. As a sign of hope, I sat down to a flower in that color.
Much hope to You and all.
