Blogger's Challenge #61 - Color Challenge

This week's challenge was a Color Combination, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, More Mustard and Ruby Red. I LOVE the Fall colors SOOO much and this combination was a joy to work with.

I got my inspiration from a card swap I recieved at convention this year. I first saw this card style, called a Wiper Card, 2 years ago at my first convention when it was demoed on stage by Spencer Willis who is a Stampin' Up! employee. I remember watching him create this fun fold and thought to myself that I could never recreate it because it was too hard.

Well, thanks to the swap card I recieved this year, I was able to really look at it and deconstruct it so that my little pea brain could "get it"! And guess what? It really was EASY! Yes, I promise! And I'll prove it! YOU will be making this card on Saturday at my Aloha stamp camp - are you registered yet? Call me today if you want to come!


Here are the details on the card:
Stamps: Upsy Daisy, Pocket Silhouettes (both on SALE right now!) and Dreams DuJour
Inks: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Basic Brown, Creamy Caramel, Ruby Red, More Mustard
Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Challenge colors
Accessories: Large and Small Oval Punches, dimensionals, sponge, Sticky Strip, Paper Cutter with Scoring Blade

The card base is cut at 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 (2 pieces) and each piece is scored at 4" and 4 3/4" on one end. The pop-up piece is cut at 1 3/4" x 3".

I was so happy with how this turned out! I may just design a different wiper card for my Stamp Camps on Tuesday! It's a fun, fun layout that just makes you smile when you see it work.

Happy Friday!

  3. Oh I love how you used this type of card with those stamps! And you are right it's really easy once you tried it. I was lucky enough to receive the card at convention too and demoed it this month. Now I'll have to make one like yours!
