SIP Challenge 12 – Colors!

Today’s the day, I’m off to the airport this afternoon to make my way to London! I still have to pack, I know, I should have done that already. Yesterday was kind of a relax and catch up day. I made a bunch of cards and watched some TV. Sandy stopped by for a little bit, we are going to have a dinner date when I get back. I’m going to try and have lunch with Heather today and then Andrew will be by around 3:00 to pick me up. Tomorrow’s post will be later in the day as I will be five hours ahead for the next two weeks. I hope that you will come along to London and Paris with me! I’ll have lots of pictures and cards for you!

Today is Tuesday so it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge! This time around we have a fun color combo for you…

SIP Color Challenge 12

Yes! A black and white and then your choice of any other color! My card today begins with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp and Black Ink to create my background. My main panel is Solar White 110lb. The stamps are from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used some Simon Says Stamp Mint Ink to stamp the solid balloons with the outlines, strings, bows and greeting stamped in Simon Says Stamp Slate Ink. The panel is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. To finish the card I adhered a few Hazel & Ruby The Makery Green with Envy and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins with Ranger Multi-Medium Matte to the panel. I love the bold black stripes with the deconstructed look of the balloons! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and take a look at what the rest of the Design Team has come up with and enter your creation in the gallery! Thank you so much for visiting with me today! Have a terrific Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow from merry old England! šŸ™‚

  3. It just hit me! If you haven’t already you need to hop over to My Favorite Things. Their new release which we can order starting at 10:00 tonight includes all kinds of things we can’t live without, but – what timing – there are stamp sets for London and Paris!

  4. Ahh my favorite balloons again. I do like these very much. A pop of color … I was pleasantly surprised! I thought for sure it was going to be pink. I guess all I’m seeing lately is black, white & pink. I like the font too. I see your little detail, of the sentiment with the balloon string, on top and bottom. Great.
    Have a wonderful, great, relaxing time away. Enjoy, Enjoy & Enjoy!
