Stampin’ Up Color Challenge

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua, TX.

Today, I’d like to share with you a project that I created using the *Borders To Backgrounds Stamp Set* along with a few other goodies for the #SUColorChallenge.

The colors for this month’s Challenge are:

I couldn’t think of a better color to use for this Challenge as we get ready to say goodbye to our beloved Seaside Spray.

Seaside Spray is one of our five In Colors that will be retiring in May. The other colors that we’ll have to be terribly sad to go are Rococo Rose, Pretty Peacock, Terracotta Tile and Purple Posy.

We already know that once Purple Posy retires due to the quality issues of the ink that it’ll sadly be gone forever but I really do hope that we’ll see Seaside Spray again in the future.

Seaside Spray Cardstock 4 1/4″×11″ scored at 5 1/2″

Daffodil Delight Cardstock 4″×5 1/4″

Basic White Cardstock 3 5/8″×4 7/8″


On the Basic White Cardstock I stamped the lines from the Borders To Backgrounds Stamp Set in Seaside Spray, Daffodil Delight and Garden Green.

I attached the ribbon to the back using Stampin’ Seal Adhesive and attached the Matte Bases to the Cardbase using the Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped a scrap of Basic White Cardstock with the “hip hip horray” sentiment from the Best Year Stamp Set in Momento Black Ink and die cut it using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it in place.

This was a simple but cute card that could easily be used for birthdays, baby showers, graduations or any other occasion where “Congratulations” may be in order.

Stay tuned for more with this card. I just had a few more ideas using this exact same layout.
