Broke Stampers Unite Color Challenge- December

Hi Stampers, welcome to my Creative & Chaotic craft room! Today’s project features a  Broke Stampers Unite color challenge.  This months colors include:  Soft Sky, Night of Navy, Tip Top Taupe, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White.

wilderness awaits,As you all know, these color challenges with more than three colors is a struggle for me,  The way I have been overcoming this struggle is using makers.

My card base is Night of Navy, Soft Sky and Rich Razzleberry.  My Whisper White layer was put thru my Big Shot with the Woodland texture embossing folder.  I just love this folder.  I wish I had ordered when the Holiday Catalog came out.  However, I am glad I got mine.  If you haven’t ordered yours yet, get it NOW!  It won’t be returning :(

Ok, back to how I made my card.   Sponging on the actual embossing folder is a major part of this card.  I sponged Tip Top Taupe and Soft Sky on the smooth side of the embossing folder.  Then I stamped the dog from The Wilderness Awaits  directly onto the folder itself, using black ink.  I carefully placed my white card stock in the folder, and ran it through the Big Shot.

After embossing, I colored in the details with markers.  I did use my marker to color in the cracks of the birch trees on the embossing folder.  I think it helps give it a more realistic feel since many white birch trees have the color variations and peeling bark.  I think this technique of coloring and stamping onto the embossing folder makes wonderful masculine cards.  The Woodland folder will definitely stay in my collection of embossing folders to used for the men in my life.

I wonder what Carol and Terri have done with this color combination.  See Carol’s blog here and Terri’s blog here.  They always surprise me with their creations.  I think I will have a little chocolate while I check out their blogs. Would you like to join us using this color combination?  You can join us on Facebook.

I mentioned that the Holiday Catalog is expiring soon.  Do you need a FREE Occasions Catalog?  It has all sorts of springy stamp sets. The Sale-A-Bration catalog is also being released soon.  If you would like me to send you these catalogs completely fill out my Request a Catalog form.
