Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Playing Cards with Friends @ CH


Hello, We have a special challenge starting over at Color Hues!  The Color Hues Design Team is Playing Cards with Michele Ferguson!I Card Everyone! YAY!  I was so delighted when she asked if this was something we might like to do and of course, I replied YES, right away!  Who wouldn’t!  Thanks, Michele! 

For this challenge not only are we using the Colors RED and Blue, Michele asked the DT to incorporate STARS and or STRIPES in our Design!  Now, since Color Hues is strictly a Color Challenge the stars and stripes are  NOT going to be required from our participants, but if you decide you want to add them, you certainly may!  

I made a bunch of cards like the one above with various color combos and I have just a few below to show you!

I am also playing along with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge where they have the perfect photo for the beginning of July!

Card Details: I made my own background stencil using a deckled edge die from Spellbinders. I sponged the background with Oxide inks leaving the centers very light or nearly white. Then I sponged the stars using a SU stencil. I just moved it around a lot to get some stars to overlap each other. The graduation cap is from SSS, the Congrats script text is from Catherine Pooler and the other one is from MFT. I added a few stars with die cuts and punches in silver and black. I used Dimensionals and sparkly paper on the grad cap.

Now, I certainly hope you head on over to Color Hues and Michele Ferguson’s blog to see all the cards they have for you, and they will inspire you to play along! They certainly inspired me!

Take care and I hope you do something today that makes you happy! Nanc’
