Click here for the most up to date LAST CHANCE ACCESSORIES LIST! Several of the colors in this weeks challenge are on that list! Stock up now on the retiring colors, markers, ink pads, refills and card stock.
Welcome to another beautiful color challenge at the Colour Q! I LOVE this weeks combination of Ruby Red (Retiring), Cameo Coral (Retiring), Apricot Appeal (Retiring), Always Artichoke, and Very Vanilla!
My card today was based upon the card sketch challenge at Taylored Expressions! This layout was perfect for showcasing a SNEAK PEEK to the new Stampin' Up! Because I Care Level 1 Hostess Stamp Set that will be in the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog! Hostesses will now have the option to receive their FREE stamp sets in either Clear Mount {C} or Wood Mount {W}!!! Level 1 Hostess Stamp Sets are awarded to Hostesses or Customers with a $150 workshop order and/or personal order!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • I used the Rock N Roll Stamping Technique for the the petals of my flower! I first stamped the blossoms in Cameo Coral (Retiring) ink, then Rock N Rolled the image in Ruby Red (Retiring) ink! So my flower is lighter in the center and darker on the edges!
  • The Because I Care sentiment fits perfectly in the Curly Label punch! I first stamped the sentiment in Always Artichoke ink on Very Vanilla card stock, then punched it out with the Curly Label punch! Using a sponge dauber, I inked the edges with Always Artichoke ink!
  • Have you seen the beautiful products in the 2010 Summer Mini Catalog!?! My textured background is from the NEW Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder found on page 24 of the Mini Catalog! This beauty sells for $7.95 and WILL be in the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog so you can continue to order this product!!!
