Colorful Saturday Challenge September 21

Good Morning,
Such a great Saturday.  This is the first day of fall.  I always love fall but I really don't like the winter that follows. I have been listening to a series of good mystery books by Val McDermid. I love to listen to books when I make cards, but at times I just stop and have to listen and this series is one of those. So been having a slow card making these last few weeks.

Every Saturday I will choose a Color Combo from either the Annual Catalog or the current mini catalog.  I will make two cards or projects using that color combination. I then challenge you to make at least one card or project using that color combo and post a link in the comments section to either your blog post on the challenge or your pinterest photo.  
Thanks for playing.

So let’s see what this week’s colors are?

For Colorful Saturday the colors are Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz.

I have two projects today, both cards. I liked this combination of course one of my favorite colors is Bermuda Bay.
This first one uses Birthday Basic Designer Series paper and Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set.  Simple and quick card.

  1. Mary, how did you do the extended version of the thinlets card? I have been trying and trying and can't get one to work. Been trying for a few weeks.


    1. It really is pretty easy. I will be having a Tips & Techniques Tuesday on it in a few weeks. But for now take a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 cardstock. Just take a little bit off the 5 1/2 side less than 1/8 I did about a 1/16, just so i slips between the thinlit. what you will do is on the short end but the cardstock under as usual and then weave the long end above the cutting edge so it is laying on top of the thinlit. It works best with the Magnetic Platform. Run it through the big shot and you have a perfect crease where the cardstock was on top of the thinlit. Does that make sense?
