Went Color Challenge Crazy!

I went color challenge crazy! The colors were just so easy to work with and I needed to make 9 or so cards (5 for Survivor and 4 for birthdays) so I got on a roll this week. I left the supplies out and just went and made cards whenever I had a chance. Or more like when I had the inclination as my mojo has been gone lately. The colors for CC218 are - only orange, summer sun and kiwi kiss. I really dislike looking at kiwi kiss by itself but it sure blends and matches well with so many things! It really looks good with just plain white too. Can't say I have used this orange before, pumpkin pie is such a nice orange and this one is very "orange". Summer sun is one of my favorites, the best color for sunflowers! I used Stampin' Up Natural Beauty stamp set, Summer By the Sea set and a Penny Black brushed flower stamp. I am going to post some today and some next time. The cards's today are all from the Natural Beauty set. Now mind you, these are all simple. Little to no embellishments, and rather plain. All of the look is from the paper really, how it was cut, shaped, layered or embossed. I am just not in the mood lately to spend 2-3 hours on just one card if you know what I mean. These are less time consuming and I must say less spectacular but that's ok :) Hope you like!

Great job with the color challenge -- these are such perfect summer cards! I looked at the color challenge and thought it was too tough for me (I have a rough time with orange), but these cards are inspiring. I may have to go back and try again!!

Thanks Jessica! Yeah that orange is something else :) Sometimes colors hit you right and sometimes they don't, I seem to do well with bright ones yet I love the soft colors by choice.
