Stampin' Up! Stampers Dozen Blog Hop September Color Challenge!

Hey there! It's time for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop!


Our theme this month is a color challenge: Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig, and Very Vanilla!

 As soon as I saw these colors together, I knew it would be perfect to pair with the Painted Harvest stamp set. It's early in the Holiday Catalog season, but so far I've seen more Painted Harvest projects online than any other Holiday Catalog set!

I added Crushed Curry and Soft Suede to the color palette to add to the warmth of the three original colors.


I used sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet set. "Happy Birthday" fits nicely inside the Pretty Label Punch. I added a Fresh Fig Pretty Label that I cut in half to "stretch" behind the Fresh Fig-sponged greeting before adding it to the cards' belly-band.


 As the card is opened the "shutter" starts to open to reveal the inside sentiment:


The farther you open the card, more of the sentiment is revealed:


I added a Gold Faceted Gem for a bit of sparkle!

Though probably not a card you would want to make a million of, it has its' place on the fireplace mantel!


Now it's time to move on to Judy Garza's blog to see what she has created with these colors!



If you wish, you may "hop back" to Laura Milligan's blog to see her creation!
