November Color Combo with Heather H. (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! Thanks again to everyone who has played along so far - make sure and look for winners and a few featured players at the bottom of this post!

I knew I wanted to use some of the newest release, and decided I would pull out the new Warm Wishes to You set - that is free right now with qualifying $25 purchase. So cute and perfect for this time of year! 

And here is my color inspiration for this month - I loved the calming blues, and the fact that the inspiration even had a cozy mug in it:

I started off by stamping the cut in a soft blue ink, then used some soft grays to stamp in the "warm" and "wishes" words, and a chocolaty color to stamp the color in the cup. I added a little sentiment underneath from the new Tagged: Holiday Cheer stamp set, and the smallest heart from the Warm Wishes to You stamp set in blue to pull it all together.

I trimmed that panel down to fit over a blue scallop rectangle cut with the largest die from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways and did some machine stitching to adhere them together (it ended up a bit uneven thanks to my bobbin excuse the messy part in the bottom right corner!). Finished off by layering on an even darker blue pattern paper, and adding a few snowflake sequins and (hard to see in the photos) some sparkly Nuvo drops.

Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! We had fewer players this month - but you all knocked it out of the park! 

First up - this soft and dreamy beauty from Rosali - that shimmer and shine and gorgeous layering - wow!

Next - this gorgeous layered floral card from Deepti! I love how happy this card is - just like the focal sentiment!

And finally, I love the vintage feel to this card by Maryam! The background is gorgeous - and the florals are perfect!


No. 3 | Maryam

Maryam's card has a beautiful background of depth and softness with allows her beautifully colored flowers to take center stage.

And since we had so many gorgeous, colorful entries (and because I just feel like it and one the perks of being the boss at w&w is I can do these things on a whim!) I randomly chose one of the Heather's favorite cards featured above to also win as well!

No. 5 | Rosali
A clean simple card, Rosali still has plenty of impact and interest with all those gloriously shimmery textured leaves.
