ColourQ 93

Saturday, July 16, 2011

I have scheduled up this post ahead of time, but I have been having some bad luck recently doing this, so I've got my fingers crossed that the post showed up on my blog some time Saturday morning.

This morning I left for Virginia for my nephew's wedding in Charlottesville.  I'm quite sure I'll be like the proverbial watering pot this weekend since I still can't quite believe he's old enough to be married.  But time marches on, and I must come to grips with the notion that he is not a child anymore!

Anyway, I'm sure you didn't come here to here about that, but to see what I've been doing with the stamps I got from the new catalog.  Today's card got me combining the ColourQ challenge with the Sweet Sunday sketch challenge.

I'm always a little afraid when I see a color challenge like this one at the ColourQ.  The colors are so diverse that I'm not sure that I can make a card that does justice to them all.  Invariably, I just start cutting and stamping until something emerges!

For this one I used the new Array of Sunshine hostess stamp set.  I stamped it twice in Peach Parfait, then cut out each layer (one of them smaller).  The smaller layer I adhered with dimensionals to the larger one, which is a look I particularly like. 

And I'm happy to say that I finally got a "hello" stamp!  A short while back I made a card and lamented that I didn't have a stamp that just said "hello."  It seems like such a versatile stamp to have, but unbelievably, I didn't have anything like it.  Then along comes the Posy Punch stamp set and "hello" has made it into my permanent stash!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have time to stamp!

You've made that flower look perfect Jen - or should I say 'parfait'! Hope you enjoyed the wedding.
