Stampin' Up! Heartland

I love it when you can get double mileage out of a stamp set, have fun with your team AND enter a challenge that is fun. There is a story behind this card and I worked it into the challenge at SoSS #102 - F is for Farm Life. This is my second entry for their challenge but totally different from yesterday!

Our "Krew" has been identifying colors they are not fond of and our leader did not want to see any of the colors together so I made a "snarky" card for all who named colors! Then, Edna at Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers left the city for the farm so I just had to turn this into a card to welcome her!"

My card base is Whisper White, standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I cut a piece of "Just Add Color" Designer Series Paper and started coloring with my Blender Pens. One person detests Lemon Lime Twist (my favorite); another abhors Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, and Elegant Eggplant. I owned up to disliking Peekaboo Peach and Tranquil Tide. Lastly, another would not miss Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango and Tempting Turquoise. So those are all the colors on the card front. I had to write my own sentiments. 

For the inside, I printed out the words to Fred Rogers' song, "Won't You Be My Neighbor" and used the RGB codes for each color on each line. I stamped the barn in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I hope you had as much fun viewing my card and post as I had with it and converting it to fit Edna. I am hoping to make converts in my group so that they will like Lemon Lime Twist, all the purples and blues. Who knows, I may convert to liking the oranges. There is no doubt that I like anything grape related!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Well this is just awesome! I am not sure that anyone has ever made a card for Edna before! I think she will be chuffed!
    Thanks for trying out farm life with Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers!

    1. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I hope Edna stops by the farm.

  2. You are so funny Karen! Glad that you were able to work in all of those "non-preferred" colors! :) Cute design too!

  3. What a fun card, Karen!! Love that you got everyone's FAVORITE colors in there and made it look so good! :)

  4. Haha, you probably don't realise this but here in the UK there's a show brand called Moshulu that uses just about exactly that colour combo on all their literature, website and marketing material. I wonder what they'd say if they know they were your group's UN favourites? I think they look gorgeous together especially on this fab card - and to have it personalised for Edna too is brilliant. Thanks for playing again at SOSS

  5. A personalized card especially for Edna! I think that's a first! I like all the colors you used. (my favorite color is rainbow! LOL!) Thanks for joining us again at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!
