3 Colour Challenge - Stampin For All

Hi Everyone,

This week's challenge was Merry Merlot, Melon Mambo and Old Olive and this is what I came up with.  I'm trying to make more cards which I have just stamped rather than added designer series paper to because it's bringing me out of my comfort zone.


1 4" x 6" card base in white
Melon Mambo ink
Merry Merlot ink
Old Olive ink
Heart to Heart stamp set
1 3/8" scalloped circle punch
1 1/2" circle punch
Scraps of white and old olive card stock
Scrap of melon mambo ruched ribbon (retired)
Multipurpose adhesive
Glue dots


I have used the Heart to Heart stamp set for the first time in this way, there are several sizes of flowers and leaves to play with.

I started by stamping the larger flowers and then adding smaller ones around them and then filling in with leaves and the twiddly bits (not sure what they are called ha ha!).  There is no right and wrong, just stamp until you are happy with it.

I've added a sentiment on a scrap of white stamped with merry merlot and mounted it on a circle of old olive.  The scrap of ribbon is from the Everything is Rosy Medley.

Give it a try, its fun.  There are lots of challenges on Facebook and Pinterest for you to choose from or make your own, just pick three colours at random and see where it takes you.

Happy stamping.
