Little Paper Shop Monday Challenge

I was looking in my Google reader at the HUNDREDS of posts that I haven't had a chance to look at, much less comment on, and I came across today's Little Paper Shop Blog challenge on Cindy's blog...yayyy! Yayyy, that I found it early so I could play, but not so much yay to what it was....a color challenge-Brilliant Blue, Pixie Pink, Real Red.....huh?? So seriously, I HATE the Bold Brights. I don't know what happened, when I first started stamping I LOVED them, and now I rarely if ever use them, and never, unless forced, do I use more than one at a time. Being a good sport, I decided to try it, but I gotta tell ya, I could just barely make myself use the Pixie Pink. I did color her bows and shoes pink, and there is a little bit in the DP(ok, I think it is Pink Passion-work with me). I stamped my Katie Cupcake on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored her with my Copics. I also paper pieced her dress with some VERY retired SU paper. She was cut out and embossed with my Cuttlebug and Oval Nesties, and her layer is Real Red-which was cut the same way. My ribbon is from SU, and the buttons are also from SU(Playground).
Well, that is it for me now, thanks for stopping by!!

  1. That's a very nice card, and you did good with the minimum amt of pink. I like the card a lot.

  2. Great job with the color challenge. I played along also this morning and I had a hard time with the pink and red together on a card concept but I think it came out fairly decent.

  5. That's funny, Jessie. When I first started stamping, I didn't think I'd ever use anything but the Soft Subtles, but I have really grown to love Bold Brights. I think you did a spectacular job with these beautiful colors! The red frosting on that pretty blue looks so delish!
