It's a Pear Pizzazz Party!!!

Hi Stamping Friends!!

I've been meaning to make some more birthday cards to bring over to Goodies Cookies bakery in Visalia, where I have my cards for sale.  But then the organizing bug hit after the holidays and we've been cleaning out closets and bringing stuff to the thrift store.  There hasn't been a ton of extra stamping time.  But I finally made time.  Like always, I sat at my computer and looked for the perfect sketch challenge to combine with the perfect color challenge and maybe even find the perfect theme challenge.  As I was copying all these ideas into my little notebook, I noticed a common thread.  There were five color challenges that all used the color Pear Pizzazz in them!  So I decided to use one sketch challenge and use all five color challenges, to make five different cards!!  The sketch comes from the Diva Coffee Break Design Challenge.  This is sketch DCDB #209.  And as a bonus, the Stampin' Royalty blog is hosting a birthday challenge.  Perfect!



The colors over at the Color Dare are Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango, and Pear Pizzazz.  This is CD91.



The colors at the Color Round Up at the Rubber Redneck blog are Peach Parfait, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, and Pear Pizzazz.  This is Color Challenge #16.



The colors over at Pals Paper Arts blog are Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum, and Pear Pizzazz.  This is Celebrity Color Challenge 76 or PPA76.



The colors over at the Color Lab are Marina Mist, So Saffron, and Pear Pizzazz.  This is Color Challenge #23.

This one is kind of funny.  In my notebook, I wrote down these colors and then wrote down Connie and Mary above it.  But when I go to the Connie and Mary blog, they are doing a skecth challenge this week.  Weird!  So I have no idea where this color combo came from.  Do you?  The colors are Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, and Pear Pizzazz.

So there you have it!  One sketch challenge, one theme challenge, and five color challenges!!  The set I used to create these cards is called Bakery Birthday.  It is a current Level 1 hostess set.  So if you want one, hostess a Stampin' Up! demonstration pronto!

Which card do you like the best?  I think my favorite card is the Color Dare one.  But I also like the PPA one.  Aw!  I love them all!  I tried to use a different round embellishment on each one.  Love SU!'s coordinating embellishments!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

These are great! I love how versatile this card is, to work with 5 color challenges. The first and last are my two favorites.

Great cards. Fantastic idea of taking a great card and just redoing it in multiply colours. Thanks for playing with Stampin' Royalty this week!

How fun! I think I like the color round up one the best, but when you have a great design, every card is going to look great. And so it is with these cards.
