CAS Colours & Sketches #371

It's Tuesday so there's a new challenge up at the CAS Colours and Sketches blog.  Today's challenge is to use the color combination below.

For our color challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colors. You may also use neutral colors; however, the challenge colors should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up color names for reference, 
but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colors as closely as possible.

Yellow is not a favorite of mine but I do love reds and teals so I was particularly drawn to this color combination.  I dug into my Christmas stash and made a non holiday card.

I just "had" to have this gnome die which was part of a holiday kit from Simon Says Stamp.  Naturally the holidays came and went and my kit had remained untouched.  (Tell me I'm not the only one....)

I used the circular stencil from Taylored Expressions as my guide to the ink blended background.  (Love these products!)  I die cut the gnome from several colors of various cardstocks using the challenge colors.  I added a bit of Copic shading to his beard and white gelly roll stripes to his hat and popped him up on the background with some foam squares.  I chose a non holiday sentiment and finished it off with some red clay hearts.  I really love how this turned out, yellow and all.  :-)

I hope you find some time to come play with us at CC&S this week!

Stay safe and healthy my friends!  

Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.  

Happy Crafting!



  1. To gnome me is to love me, Julie! What a darling guy to wake up to! so cahUTE!

  2. Sure, you had red to play with, but no, you made yellow the star of the show, with green coming in a close second? Just messin' with you, it's perfect the way it is!

  3. I love that little guy! And I so agree with yellow not being a favorite. Isn't it funny how we all perceive color? Other people say yellow is their favorite and I really don't like it!
