Curtain Call Color Challenge: {ACT 44}

A new Curtain Call Color Challenge is posted every Sunday! This posting will remain at the top of the page until the challenge closes on Friday night. Please scroll down to see updates through the week:)



It has been incredibly HOT in the midwest the past week or so! With school starting in this kind of heat, it really makes you want to get back to the pool:) This photo, Color Your Summer at Hostess with the Mostess, seemed to be the perfect inspiration to celebrate the joys of summer one more time before the busy school schedules and the fall season sets in.

To participate in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 44...

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 44 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 deadline will be Friday night. You have until Friday, August 27th before midnight (CST) to enter your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 44 project.

Join us for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 44 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!






Happy Thoughts Make Happy Days...




I inked up this darling stamp set, Apple Blossoms, and stamped the whimsical branch in all three of the Curtain Call colors, Tempting Turquoise, Poppy Parade, and Daffodil Delight. What a happy combination it makes! After adding a few rhinestones and Poppy Parade Poly Twill, this card was finished with ease.





Stamps: Apple Blossoms
Paper: Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White CS, Island Oasis DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Poppy Parade, Tempting Turquoise & Daffodil Delight
Other: Eyelet Border Punch, Poppy Parade Poly Twill ribbon, Rhinestones
