April 2019 Color Combo Challenge

Creativity challenges show up in a variety of ways.  It could be designing a particular card layout, altering or re-purposing an item, or even just trying to figure out how to use a stamp set in multiple ways.  Today our challenge is represented in a color combination.  Sure it seems easy enough, but truthfully it is a challenge!

The SIS designers were given the following colors for their creations this week:  Lemon-Lime Twist, Pacific Point, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, and Whisper White.  Beautiful colors independently, but stunning when used together.

Debbie Naylor created a whimsical wedding card featuring the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.  This is a stunning set and I think Debbie did a fantastic job using on this color challenge.  Hop over to Debbie's blog here for more information. 

Next up is Jennifer Rawlings' card featuring the classic muscle car from the Geared Up Garage stamp set.  I think it is interesting how close Jennifer's and Debbie's card layouts are this week.  I suppose great minds think alike!  Be sure to visit Jennifer's blog here.

Last-Chance Products

Before you leave, we must remind you that the Stampin' Up! retired list is posted - the closing out of these items make room for more great things in the next annual catalog.  Be sure to connect with your demonstrator to place you last-chance order and get those retiring items off your wish list and in your hands before they are all gone!

Thank you for visiting with us today.  We pray every one of you have a blessed Easter Weekend.  See you back here soon!

Let's see what our designers have for us today.

Debbie Naylor's project is bright and cheery and absolutely stunning.  The "baby" tag featured here shows you can easily create a baby card without a baby-specific stamp set.  Hope over to Debbie's blog here to learn all about her lovely project!

Here is a card designed by Jennifer Rawlings featuring themed party balloons - can you guess the stamp set she used?  This card could easily be used as baby shower or welcome baby/congratulations family card, or even invitations!  Jennifer has more information on this project at her blog here

This card by Karla Anders uses the Better Together stamp set which is absolutely perfect for today's theme.  Her color combination is Sea Foam and Highland Heather, a soft selection and beautifully coordinated.  Please stop over to Karla's blog here to see more.
