Card Tutorial - Four Different Designer Papers Thanks Card | Tracy Marie Lewis |

The project for this week's Creative Cat Crew Color Challenge #28 is loaded with a variety of colors! This weeks color range is Night of Navy, Real Red, Powder Pink, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and white. Here is our inspirational image:

I bought the fall Stampin' Up! paper share from Shannon Cole who is my Stampin' Up! supreme leader (she is my team leader's leader). Shannon made up some great shares for everyone, I had wanted the ribbon share as well, but as you know I have no room for that much ribbon, so I settled on the paper. I got it at the retreat and I will admit I have a little bit of a paper hoarding issue. I have a hard time using paper. I seem to be fine with the solids, I run into trouble with the patterned cardstock because it is just too pretty to use.

Copic Sketch markers used to color the houses (SU color - copic color):

  • Real Red - R37
  • Night Of Navy - B99 (hah, I actually did not use this though I pulled it out to use)
  • Pool Party - G21
  • Old Olive - YG93
  • Powder Pink - RV11
  • Bermuda Bay - BG57
  • Pear Pizzazz - YG61

I felt that with all of the colors provided in this color challenge, surely I could find the right mix of papers to complete a project. And I did! In fact I was able to cut up four different patterns from four different DSP sets. I video'ed my process from start to finish. Video length 12 min 25 sec. (coloring, cutting and final assembly included, but sped up for ease of viewing)

I am entering this project in the following challenges:
