New 411 Challenge - COLOR!


Stamping 411 has decided try out a color challenge! This is the first week . . . so if you have a chance to play, be sure to upload your card and leave your link! It would be nice to make this challenge just a popular as their awesome sketch challenges!
.
I am using the stamp set called, "Charming", and though it will not be pictured in the upcoming Occasions Mini catalog, you will still be able to order it . . . that's exciting - especially because all but one of the charms will be available to purchase in early January. I can hardly wait. I don't know that actually "making" jewelry is something I'm very interested in, but I will be all over making the seasonal inserts that will fit into the charms and that's where this beautiful set will come in so handy.
.
Can you see where I used the Big Shot on this card? It's the skinny Not Quite Navy oval layer behind the sentiment which is punched out with the Wide Oval Punch. I recently purchased the Ovals Original Die. The die has three ovals on it and the smallest oval makes a lovely border to our Wide Oval Punch.
.
A Stamping to Share Tip: When your card features a knot on one of our wider ribbons, double up your Stampin' Dimensionals to give your main image panel the umph it needs to rise up to the occasion! It's easy to layer dimensionals . . . just place the first layer where you want them, peel off the stickies and then place another layer of dimensionals right over the top of the first for double height. I've even done triple height! It's a great effect!

Love this card Kay! You are officially the first Color Challenge player on S411!
The brads on the scallops look great here and I love the torn edge too. Great job!

Kay, I am speechless (and ask anyone....that doesn't happen much...LOL!!!). This card is absolutely stunning. I love all those brads on the scallops...and that stamp set....and the half circles under the focal image. Thanks so much for participating in my first ever color challenge!!

Boy, you really rocked that color challenge and you did it fast too!

I love this combination and you did a fabulous job with it.

Thanks for the tip on the Ovals BS die. Do you know if one of them mats the scallop oval punch well? None of our oval punches mat it very well.
