SP Color Combo #5

***This challenge is now closed. If you would like to play along, please leave us a comment below so we can see!***

This week, I am using some of the brand new In Colors! Stampin' UP comes out with 6 brand new colors every year and they are only available for that year. The "year" actually runs more like a "school year" so these colors were released July 1st and will run for 09-10. I fell in love with last year's In Colors and I am already starting to fall for some of these colors as well. I hope you like them!


Please add the SPCC button to your blog and help spread the word, in return I will link to you under the Friends of SPCC section. Let me know if you have added the button and I will get you added as a friend.

Here is SPCC #5:

I again picked a summery color combo, but this one also could be used for many other themes.

Use this color combo for your project -be it a card, scrapbook LO, or altered item. You do NOT have to use Stampin' UP brand colors, but you do have to use colors close to these colors.
My card features the brand new In Colors shown in the color combo: Soft Suede polka dot ribbon and, Bermuda Bay ink and Cardstock, and Melon Mambo ink and cardstock. All the stamps used are from the Stampin' UP Friends 24-7 stamp set. The frame is a Sizzix scallop frame made with a Big Shot Die (be sure to check out the side bar for the Big Shot giveaway).



Entries are due on Sunday, July 12th. Next Monday, I will showcase the winner and the SP Top Five. The winner from SPCC #4 is posted below this post.

One winner will win a prize from our lovely sponsor. . . . Karen, US Stampin' UP Demonstrator!


Karen is one of my close friends and I love her dearly. She is one of the kindest people you will ever meet. She has a huge soft spot for animals (especially dogs) so we really connect. Karen is relatively new to the blogging and Stampin' UP world so be sure to check out her blog and leave her some love. If you don't have a Stampin' UP demonstrator, contact Karen! I am sure she would love to be your demonstrator.

Karen has generously donated this weeks prize, which is one of her favorite colors!


One lucky winner this week will receive the items pictured above:
  • An Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad
  • 5 sheets of Old Olive cardstock 8.5X11inch
  • A $5 gift certificate redeemable through Karen

Hi. Just wondering if you are happy to accept "near to" colours for your challenges. As I don't live in the US I don't have access to the new in colours in your new catalogue (sadly). Thanks

Hi, I just couldn't stop myself and made a card for your challenge. I don't have the new SU colors, so I used some similars.

Thanks so much for the inspiration and for the wonderful challenges.
God bless
