October Color Combo Challenge

October Color Combo Challenge

Welcome my Crafty Friends to the October Color Combo Challenge post.

This card was one that I really struggled with. I wanted to try out the leaves stencil in the Abundantly Beautiful Decorative Masks, so I blended them on the card base to make my own Designer Series Paper.

October Color Combo Challenge


  • Basic White card stock – Card Base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, crease at 4 1/4″; Card Center – 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″; Sentiment – 1″ x 3″
  • Natural Ribbon – 4″


  • Cut materials to proper measurements
  • To give the edges a nice shading, I used the Balmy Blue and blended lightly.
  • Using the Pebbled Path, I blended the leaf mask on the card base, going over the Balmy Blue.
  • On the Basic White card front, take #1 from the Abundantly Beautiful Decorative Masks and blend the Balmy Blue over all three flowers.
  • Next, blend the Misty Moonlight on the middle of the flowers only, leaving the petal edges with only Balmy Blue showing.
  • Take mask #3 and color in the flower center with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Classic Stampin’ Pad™, then use mask #4, to color in the seeds with Pebbled Path Classic Stampin’ Pad™.
  • Die cut the Basic White card front using the 3rd largest rectangle from the Deckled Rectangles dies.
  • Use VersaMark on the edges of the card stock and emboss with Black embossing powder. It adds a little something extra to the card front, setting is apart from the card base.
  • Take the Natural ribbon and wrap it around the card front. I used Seal+ to hold mine on, but you can use what you like!
  • Next, die cut out the small sentiment banner with the smallest rectangle in the set and stamp your sentiment on it in Pumpkin Pie and Seal+ it on the ribbon.
  • Add the card front to the card base with dimensionals and add your pearls.
