The Color Purple Challenge!

Happy Saturday! I was so flattered that the very talented Cindy Major over at Encre, Papier, Ciseaux asked me to be a guest stamper this week for her weekly blog challenge! Of course, I said yes, then she told me the challenge...use the color purple...and I thought, "Oh no, I never use purple!" lol! So it truly was a good challenge for me! I tried to use one purple from three different SU color families, and here's what I came up with...


For the first card I made, I used Almost Amethyst from the Soft Subtles color family, and I used white as an accent. It's hard to see, but the card is embossed with the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plate using the Big Shot, and the baby carriage is from Puns From the Past. The letters are by Making Memories, and I picked them up at Target because I thought the pastel colors would work well with this challenge.




This next card, my wild one, uses Lovely Lilac from the Bold Brights color family and Sassafrass Lass paper, chipboard frame, and flower. The chipboard letters are from Pink Paislee, so yummy! The "good friend" is embossed in white on Chocolate Chip cardstock. The ribbon, rhinestone brad, and crochet flower are all by SU.



My last project uses Elegant Eggplant (yes, I had to look up the *official name* of this color, yikes!) from the Rich Regals card family. I used my Big Shot with the Matchbox Die, it really is the quickest and easiest box to make! I threw in black as an accent color and a little bit of white. The "u r" are Black Tie Thickers, and the "everybody's favorite" is from a retired SU set Cute Converse.



Be sure and check out Cindy's creations here! I hope you will take the color purple challenge too and let us check out your creations!



If you have any specific questions, let me know and I'll get back with you! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Oh I love your "wild one" so cute. And thanks for your advice on my scrubber. It seems like everyone is together on mine being a rare case.

Hi, Angie!

Oh wow, you did SUCH a good job on the challenge! I love how you took on various purples. And I feel so spoiled that you have three different projects to share with us!!

I had to laugh when you said you had to check of the name of Elegant Eggplant... This is my favorite purple of the bunch, and the one that actually do not scare me as much. I almost reached for it right away, and then reminded myself that it would be cheating since I was challenging myself to use those other cardstock colours I was hoarding. Funny, too, how we all included a bit of white or black to try and tame that purple!

Thank you so very much for playing with us, it was a real pleasure to have you as a Guest Stamper!

Have a great weekend,
Cindy

Oh, these are so much fun! Your treat box is adorable, and I just love the amethyst card (I don't use that color enough).

Fab job with all the purple. Elegant Eggplant is one color that does not get a lot of action in my neck of the woods. That matchbox is very cool

Deanna said...

Gorgeous Angie... I especially love the card with the Sassafrass!

Silli said...
