Welcome to the Stamping Cat Color Challenge #75 Sep 9, 2018.  This color challenge is open to everyone!  All entries are due by September 15 at 11pm!

Stamping Cat Color Challenge #75 Sep 9, 2018

This weeks color range is Real Red, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and Crumb Cake.  

I am so loving this color challenge! Since my goal was to have a weekly color challenge that would stretch our creativity I am searching for creative color combos. Sometimes outside the box. With that in mind I am striving to make the colors varied and challenging! 

Here are the simple steps for ANYONE to enter the colore challenge

  1.  Go to bottom of the post click on the little blue box below that says add your link. You can do this anytime from Sunday (the day it’s posted) through the following Saturday night (when it closes)
  2. Follow the steps to upload. Simply type your name, email, your blog URL ( if you have one and would like to have your photo connect back to your own blog ),  and drag & drop (or upload) your photo. Click Crop to edit, or SELECT if finished.
  3. Click the blue box that says DONE!

InLinkz is super easy, and does the random picking at the end of the week and notifies the winner by email (email comes from InLinkz challenges, not StampingCatCrew)!  I do not get notified, so if you are the winner YOU MUST EMAIL ME YOUR CHALLENGE # AND ADDRESS TO RECEIVE YOUR BLOG CANDY!  (Blog candy is limited to US mailing address only, sorry!)

Having a blog is NOT required, however you can share your link back to your blog if you want to generate traffic for yourself through blog hopping, etc… Let me know if you need help! you can post questions here.

Just submit your entry before the weekly deadline (Saturday night at 11:50 pm) and let’s share our creativity! Just have fun & play!

Spooky Sweets & Cauldron Framelits Quick & Easy Halloween card

Spooky Sweets & Cauldron Framelits Quick & Easy Halloween card 

Yay for today’s simple Spooky Sweets & Cauldron Framelits Quick & Easy Halloween card.  I am loving playing with the items from Holiday catalog this year! I have been working my way through the seasons this time because my life plate is full…

However, when my friend asked if I had played with the Christmas sets yet, I had to sadly say no!  I took on the joy of being Superintendent of the Crafts & Hobbies section of our State Fair last year so my last month has been nuts!  Now I am at a craft retreat writing today’s post and enjoying a quiet weekend looking forward to all the amazing Fall and Christmas cards to come!

The fun bat card above was a quick and easy card I made for our monthly swap group.  Simply start with an A2 card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″, score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The second black layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, add the top white stamped layer cut at 3.75″ x 3.75″.  The final touches are a strip of DSP and Shimmer Black ribbon.  Finally pop up the cute hat and sentiment and remember to make your envelope pretty!

And here is the Spooky Sweets & Cauldron Framelits Quick & Easy Halloween card video tutorial:
