Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 18

This soothing color combination was inspired by the Potter's Choice Trivet at Antrhopologie. The floral earthenware was handcarved with a glossy finish of vivid greens and aquatic! I interpreted the colors as Stampin' Up!'s Night of Navy, Old Olive, Whisper White, Kraft & Ballet Blue.

Join us for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 18 and you could be one of next Show Stoppers to earn this badge!

To join us in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 18, simply create a papercrafted project using these colors (or similar shades), post it on your blog or other public gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Paper Craft Planet, Stampin' Addicts, etc.) using the keywords Curtain Call, link your posting back here to the Stamping Stage, and then come back to enter your name and the exact link to your project in the Mr. Linky box. You have until Saturday, February 27th before midnight (CST) to enter your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 18 project.

Those who are chosen as Show Stoppers will be awarded the Show Stopper badge to post on their blog and share the exciting news! I will be picking more than one Show Stopper for every ten Curtain Call Color Challenge submissions!

Just For You

Today, I wish I would've had Night of Navy Craft ink so that my images would be darker...I guess some new Craft ink colors need to go on my next Stampin' Up! order if I'm going to be stamping on DSP more often:)

I randomly stamped using two different images from the True Friend stamp set onto Bella Bleu DSP with the Night of Navy ink, then attached some of those fabulous Ice Circle Rhinestone brads through the centers of the larger images. The Ballet Blue cardstock was punched with the Scallop Trim punch and adhered behind the main panel. The card base is Kraft cardstock with some retired Old Olive DSP covering the card front. The Old Olive grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around the entire card front and tied in a bow...then the sentiment stamped in Night of Navy with the Oval All stamp set was punched out using the Scallop Oval punch. After prying the brad prongs apart and popping the stones out, a little more bling was added to the sentiment tag with Mini Glue Dots.

Stamps: True Friend, Oval All
Paper: Kraft, Ballet Blue CS, Bella Bleu & retired DSP
Ink: Night of Navy
Other: Ice Circle Rhinestone Brads, Mat Pack & Paper Piercing Tool, Scallop Trim & Scallop Oval Punches, Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain
