The challenge at Totally Stampalicious this week is to use the colors Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip, and Creamy Caramel in a project. Colors that I love proved to be quite a challenge when I started putting ink to paper! First I will show you the card I made as my second project because I just wasn't feelin' it for the first one. Then we'll take a peak at the first attempt with these colors. I have a disclaimer on this card, though....I had to throw out the Creamy Caramel and I have totally cheated on this one!! I think I know why SU! is retiring Creamy Caramel. It used to be a go-to color for me, but when I read about the colors that were being retired, I realized that I hadn't used CC in AGES!!!
Now, my first project was another story. I just wasn't feeling that old flame for the creamy caramel and I think it really shows here, but since I will be carrying my coffee around in it, I guess I may as well show off my failure, too. Helps to keep one humble, too!
I never noticed until I actually made something with these little mugs how cloudy the plastic is on the outside. When you take the insert out, it's much brighter...see???
Totally Stampalicious' blog and use the Mr. Linky tool to link your project so we can all see it, too!!
And be sure to check back on Thursday evening for our blog hop to celebrate our new release of cute Bugaboo images in acrylic!!! Very cool!!!
