Creative Colour Challenges 79 with Decorative Borders

Hello, I hope you are well.

These are the colours for the latest challenge over at

Please CLICK HERE to find out more about this challenge and to join in the fun with this week’s 3 colours.

These 3 colours certainly are a bright combination! However, I’ve used the sparingly on my card…

I’ve used Very Vanilla Thick card for my base, with a layer of Basic Black card and then my stamped and coloured layer of Very Vanilla.

Firs of all I stamped the Decorative Border twice with Memento ink. I used the Granny Apple Green dark and light Stampin’ Blends to colour in the leaves. I used Melon Mambo light Stampin’ Blend for the central flower. As we no longer sell Mango Melody blends I picked up some of the ink onto a small clear block and then dipped a Blender Pen into it to colour in the smaller flowers and the little diamond shapes at the end of the stamped images.

I then stamped the largest Thank You from Go To Greetings in between the 2 border stamps. I also added a few of the vanilla classic matte dots. The final touch was to add a little bit of stamping to the inside of the card too…

Why don’t you see what you can make with these colours and join in the fun?
