ColourQ Tuesday #31

Hi Stamping Friends!

Aren't these super fun colors that Arielle chose this week?!  So bright and summery.  I just love them!  And I had enough time this week to make three cards for you.  It's always amazing how the same colors can look so different together, depending on the layout and stamp set used.  I was so disappointed in how these pictures turned out.  The white almost looks gray.  I couldn't figure it out until I looked at my camera settings.  Duh!  I had left it on Auto, when I usually take my card pics using the Av mode.  It was too late to re-take them, so you'll just have to image them looking way brighter and better IRL!


This card uses the Sketchy Thursday #81 sketch from the EAT, SLEEP, STAMP blog.  The DSP on this card is Pink Flamingo.  I also used the Inspired By Nature set for the grass.


This card uses the Fall To Layout sketch #88 from the CLEAN AND SIMPLE blog.  This stamp set and the Sqaure Lattice Impressions folder are now available for purchase through the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini catalog.  I have no idea why I didn't color the legs on these graduates.  A little Blush Blossom would have gone a long way! 


This sketch comes from the CCEE STAMPERS.  This is sketch CCEE1017.  All those blues and yellow are such great beach colors.  My BIL loves surfing, so I think I'll keep this card around for his birthday in June.  I created the tag by punching some Certainly Celery cardstock with the Curly Label punch.  I cut the label in half and glued it on top of itself, to make it smaller.  Then I ran it through the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  You can't even see the cut mark!  It sure was nice to use up so many Brilliant Blue brads on these cards.  Since BB is one of the retiring colors, I'm sure all the accessories in those colors will be retiring as well.  Out with the old... in with the new!!  I can't wait for the new SU! colors palette in July!!!

Make sure you stop back by on Thursday when I will debut my new challenge blog: STAMPIN' CELEBRATION.  It's a weekly inspiration challenge, with an awesome Design Team.  This Thursday we will post our very first challenge.  You should see the amazing creations these gals have come up with!  We hope to inspire stampers to use their creativity to celebrate all of life's special moments. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
