CAS Colours and Sketches #397


Hello Tuesday!  It's time for another color challenge over at the CAS Colours and Sketches blog, hosted again by my teammate Shannon.  She's chosen a beautiful trio of colors for us to ponder and play along with this week.  

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.

I had some wonderful products from The Greetery that were just waiting to be used.  I chose three ink colors from my collection that closely matched the Stampin Up color hues and created an ink blended checked background using a stencil.  I then stamped and die cut the word Happy along with some greenery, which as you can see, is not green.  My sub sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink onto a strip of black cardstock and then heat embossed in white.  I added my panel to a white 110 lb card base, popping it up with craft foam.  And, as per my usual, I added a few crystal clear droplets to finish off the card.    I am not a plaid/gingham kind of person but I really love how this turned out.  (Seriously though, can anything Betsy Veldman designs ever not be pretty?)

Ellen Hutson - crystal clear droplets

If you have a spare moment this week we'd love it if you played along.  I look forward to seeing your cards in our gallery!

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. Really lovely, Julie! of course, any card involving grey, and grey-friendly colors 'does it' for me!

  2. Well done! I love the checkered pattern "weaving". The greeting is really pretty as well.

  3. Love the background as well as the beautiful sentiment! I would totally play with these colours.
