Did you know that there is a fun blog called TGIF Challenges? Each week they present a new challenge idea that anyone can participate in. I love challenges because they are often the push I need to be a little different than my norm or to just get me stamping. As I have been working to get through all of my retiring stamp set to create projects to share I thought that this challenge would be an excellent way to see what I could create using a retiring stamp set as well as the challenge. This week the challenge was for a color combo – Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay. You can check out their samples here #TGIFC415 Color Challenge.
I also wanted to try something a little different with this card. I have always enjoyed the paper piecing technique and decided rather than doing it as the front of the card I would use it to create the card base and do a little something different for the card opening. I’ve created this quick video for you to show how easy it is to create this background and card.

I actually created this card using the hello beautiful stamp set for the challenge first, but I liked the sailboat card better so I featured it first in the blog. The inspiration for my card was from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog – pg 50 where the stamp set was highlighted. I keep all my old catalogs as they are a great source of inspiration for color combos, layouts or just to spark the imagination. Do you keep your catalogs? Did you know a new catalog will be coming out in May? Be sure to contact me if you would like to receive your own catalog.
