ColourQ164 Times Two

DSCF0962

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  My heart sunk when I saw Arielle’s ColourQ challenge today:

How in the world was I going to incorporate these colors into a card?!!!  Yikes!  Concord Crush and I avoid each other like the plague!  But in the end, I made TWO cards with these colors!  Here’s the first:

LeAnne_CQC164

This is a long-tall-drink-of water card at 8” high, but it will fit into a business-sized envelope!  I know this card will be perfect for any masculine birthday with the bold negative-cut graphic look these letters impart….I added a sentiment from Curly Cute in Bermuda Breeze along with some twine (even guys like bows on their presents, don’t they?) and it was done.  And of course, I still had the positive diecuts sitting on my desk, so I made another card:

Same sentiment, same idea, but after I saw this card while blurfing, I decided to make some banners with my Pennant Parade set and my pennant punch!  In the end, these cards made me smile and I have two more birthday cards to add to my stash!  Oooh, I cannot wait to see what you make with these colors!!  Share your creation with us at the ColourQ blog and check out what the others made as well!

We came across another woolly caterpillar last week while playing outside:

And she finally got up enough nerve to touch it!

Enjoy your day!  Tomorrow I’ll be back with some pictures from the weekend’s holiday swap stamping event!  As always, if you have any questions, just shoot me an email!

I love that color combination and the challenge makes me want to buy the papers. lol
Both of your cards are amazing, but my favorite is that second one. I think it is my love affair with banners.

Cute card. Was wondering what you used to cut your letters? If dies,who make them? Thanks.

Patti J said...

Girl, you NAILED, totally NAILED this color challenge! Your cards are perfect. So bright and cheerful, too! Thanks for sharing, and for always sharing that beautiful grand with us!

Love them both LeAnne! Such great colors. Can I ask what you cut the letters out with? Have a great day! :-)

Bonnie said...

Both of these are wonderful birthday cards! The negatives are as lovely as the cuts themselves!

Love your cards, LeAnne, those die cuts are fabulous! As for the colors, they had me amiss as well, but we made it again! Your Cassidy and I would get along well. I love bugs and worms of all sorts, I used to do what she is doing. Only problem is I got stung once before I learned maybe I should not touch! Have a beautiful Thanksgiving!

I shared your fear when I saw the color combo, but you rocked it! Great looking set of cards.

BTW-Looks like your wooly caterpillar is predicting a mild winter in MD! So cute that she got got up the nerve to touch it!

Hi LeAnne. I love both of the cards. I have been looking into buying a cutter. May I ask what you used and do you recommend it? I so enjoy your blog! debbie

Well you certainly nailed it with these colours. I love these cards and these letter die cuts. Way to use the positive and negative and great 2 wonderful cards out of them. I'm really liking that tall skinny sized card.
It's fun to see Cassidy exploring new things all the time.

Jen said...

These are ingenious! I agree that this was a tough challenge, but you totally rocked it!

Noelle said...

hahaha, I had the same moment of panic! *gulp* You did an awesome job, though. I love the banner card! Cassidy looks so intent on the caterpillar in the bottom pic, too cute! :)
