Stamp Simply #93 – Combo Challenge

Keyword ssnotime93 – There is no time limit. You can play this challenge and upload your project at Splitcoastand/or your Blog, anytime at all. You (and that means anyone and everyone, blogger or not!) can play as many times as you like!!! The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!! Please link back here.

Combo Challenge — Today’s challenge is two-fold — a color challenge and simple technique. COLORS — grassy green and sky blue. I’ve always loved blue and green together. You MAY add other colors, just make sure you get in plenty of the greens and blues. SIMPLE TECHNIQUE – PIERCE. I seem to have gotten away from piercing of late, but I LOVE to do it — so I’m hoping this challenge gets me back into piercing mode!!! Can’t wait to see what you all do!

Check out the great samples for the Stamp Simply Challenge today on the blogs of these designers:

  7. nancy littrell says:

    I also love blue and greens together. My favorite combo is sage green and Not Quite Navy….but will have to come up with something different as these are not the right shades of green and blue for your challenge. Hope to stamp for just myself as I have been working on hostess club party projects, which I love doing too. TFS your gorgeous card….love the DP, prints, gorgeous bow and tiny bit of piercing.

  8. Beautiful card, Sharon. Love the color combo, the papers you picked and shabby chic look. And of course that big beautiful bow!

    So fresh and pretty–just like a summer day!

  13. This is so very pretty, Sharon! Nothing is better than a gingham ribbon, and it looks amazing here with these gorgeous paper! I struggle to use blue, and don’t find too much blue in my designer papers either, so this challenge was great! I’ll have to remember to use this combo more often and use more blue! 🙂
