This week's challenge is to use the Stampin' Up colors Soft Suede, Calypso Coral, and Pool Party to make a Valentine's day card.
My card is below:
Before participating in the challenge, I didn't think these colors will work well together. I was wrong -- the colors look beautiful together. Especially the Pool Party and Calypso Coral.
I used these Stampin' Up products for my card:
Soft Suede card stock (115318)
Calypso Coral and Pool Party card stock from the 2011-2013 In Color card stock (124329)
Whisper White card stock (100730)
Easy Events stamp set (Wood: 116958; Clear: 123225)
Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (Wood: 115370; Clear: 127802)

Calypso Coral Classic stamp pad (126983)
Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write markers from the 2011-2013 In Color marker sets (123002)
1 3/4 circle punch (119850)
2 3/8 scallop circle punch (118874)

Big Shot (113439)
Stampin' Dimensionals (104430)
Snail adhesive (104332)
All of these supplies are available at my Stampin' Up! store.
I didn't want to use the sentiment that came with the birds in the Easy Events stamp set, so I cut it off using my Craft and Rubber scissors (103179). I was worried that it will ruin my stamp -- I took a long deep breath, and snipped (you can tell I was a little shaky with the "snipping"):
I shouldn't have worried! The scissors cut through the stamp and the cling foam like butter! I can't wait to "trim" my stamps to fit my needs -- this opens so much more possibilities with combining stamps and sentiments. :)
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
