A “Major” Color Challenge

Stampin up font of you

I'm so excited that I get to be a Guest Stamper today for Cindy Major's Color Challenge.  This talented Canadian Stampin' Up! demo was one of my past Guest Stampers on Stampin' Pretty and created quite a splash with this amazing "Year in a Box" project.  Her blog, Encre, Papier, Ciseaux, is loaded with gorgeous projects that will make you say "mais oui!"

  1. Very pretty. You always put together such beautiful cards, very unique in design and layout. You are an inspiration!

  2. Wow, they are both gorgeous! I love the combo, especially since I never use Summer Sun and I’ve accumulated quite a stash!

  3. Mary, this is a beautiful card.

  4. Tres jolie, ma amie! This is a beautiful interpretation of the challenge. I am diminished by its splendour!

  5. colleen kramer

    Excellent color challenge samples! I especially like the clean and simple lines of the second and the great textured layers of the first.

  6. Great job on both of these, Mary! I love both of them, but especially like what you did with the ‘friends’ card! So simple but pretty!

  7. Mary, you continually amaze me with you ability to incorporate so many of the SU! products. You seem able to highlight all of them at some point. Good work!

  8. I love both versions! They are so different, despite using the same colors. I really like how you used your flower punch to embellish the first one and the doodled frame!
    I used to hate Summer Sun and never use it, but I have to admit it looks great paired with most of our current InColors and I am loving it more and more.

    I am very grateful you accepted my invitation to play along this week. It was an honour!

    Have a great weekend!

    P.S. You clever titles always make me smile…

  9. Love these colors together! Thanks for sharing!

  10. Good, good work, Mary! Wow! Your card are simple but soooo amazing!

  11. This color combination is great, especially paired with your beautiful work Mary! Love both cards, and the second one is a great quick one!
