Embellish Color Challenge


Clear and Simple Stamps is celebrating their latest release of embellishments by sponsoring a fab challenge with Embellish Magazine. Play along with bold stripes against rich and sultry hues of purple and brown to win a Designer Mix prize pack of their products. We are talking about a major swag bag here: ink, cardstock, buttons, brads, clear block, ribbon, stamp cleaner, scrubber pad, and more.  Join in the challenge for a chance to win….
  • COLORS: Purple, Kraft, Brown
  • TWIST:  Incorporate your colors with the design element of stripes
Get creative and have fun here. Stripes can be added in lots of ways.  Try patterned paper, ribbon, stamping, scoring, etc.  With so many options you are bound to find a design element or embellishment that will just rock! Check out the Embellish Magazine blog for some seriously adorable and extra perfect digi papers for the challenge, designed by Ashley herself. Upload your card to the Embellish site for your chance to win.

The card above uses the Hero Dad set from Clear and Simple Stamps. The striped paper is one of the wonderful digital papers available from the embellish site. For the bottom card I used a couple of sets from Clear and Simple Stamps. I used the Summer Sentiments set for the flowers and the "Anniversary". I wanted a larger font for the "Happy" to fit in the book plate so I used part of the "Happy Easter" sentiment from the Easter Basket set.
