Cup of Cheer

Hey there Stampin’ friends!

Hope that you had a great weekend! Today’s card share is for the Color Challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers!

Here’s the color combo they gave us:



Here’s what I came up with:


I made a color wash for the background on watercolor paper. I also was bound and determined to use this new Cup of Christmas bundle from the Holiday Mini Catty, as it fit perfectly for the dessert option with this week’s challenge. I felt the card needed a neutral color (besides the Whisper White) to bring it all together so I added Early Espresso to the color palette.


Here’s a close-up:


I changed up this card so many times before the end result that you see here. It’s one of those things about making cards sometimes….you mess and fiddle to where it all runs together and it never even comes close to what you were trying to come up with.

Here’s another view:


Anyways, I finally got to a place that I was at least not hating it that I just stopped and had to go with satisfied because I didn’t like anything else that I was coming up with, sigh.

Have you ever been this way in designing a project? So frustrating sometimes dealing with yourself and coming up with the design stuck in your head, as my daughter would say to me, “You’re sooooo EXTRA!” LOL 🙂

Well, thanks so much for stopping by! Have a blessed week ahead ❤
