Crafty Challenge Blog Hop – Color (July 2021)


Welcome to the July Crafty Challenge Blog Hop. We’re a group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world that participate in this blog hop to inspire and encourage card makers to create new cards.  This month our challenge is to use Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, and Melon Mambo when designing our cards. 

I really like color challenges as you can use any stamp set or bundle as long as you incorporate the selected colors into your design. I’ve been designing a card class with the Seascape Bundle  I’m offering on July 27th.  It’s too late to receive the card kits but you can still purchase the pdf tutorials for all of the measurements by emailing me at

It was so easy to incorporate these colors into a card using the Seascape Bundle. Bermuda Bay cardstock was used for the card base and die cutting the two little fish. Using the Bark Embossing Folder, I simulated the look of water on a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock. The coral die cut was made from Melon Mambo cardstock. I had a fun time coloring the large fish by first adding Melon Mambo to the body and blending Bermuda Bay on the fins using ink and a sponge dauber. 

I hope you’ve gotten some inspiration from my card today. I can’t wait to see the card designs by the other demonstrators in this blog hop. Please check out all of their amazing creations and challenge yourself to make some cards with this beautiful card combination.

Happy Stamping!
