And the winner of their $15 gift certificate was lucky me!  I'm their biggest fan, so I can't wait to add more of their stamp sets to my collection.

This past week, I inked up their "Stampalicious Scarlette."  With her Copics in her hand, she is always ready to color an image...just like me.

Their challenge this week is for "Clean & Simple" cards.  I'm not quite sure what that means because some of their samples had ribbons and other embellishments.  My cards might not qualify for the challenge, but I wanted to share another of their great images.

I will upload these (with all their materials) to the SplitCoast Stampers Gallery within the next few days.  My screen name there is carleneanne.

Totally Stampalicious Favorite Color Combo Challenge

This week's challenge on Totally Stampalicious is to share our favorite color combinations.  There is NO WAY I could choose just one combination.  As long as I can get the coloring and the papers to coordinate, I'm IN LOVE with whatever colors I am using on a current project.

For instance, I just opened my new "Gus Mantastic" stamp set.  (That's another thing...there is so much joy and fun in playing with Gus...I think anything and EVERYTHING goes with him!)

So I started out by coloring him with my Copics and decided to put him in a beach scene.  At that point, light blue and every other color in the world seemed to be my favorite combo.  Here are those results.   (The designer paper is from the "Splash" collection from Little Yellow Bicycle.  Gus was cut out and mounted on foam tape for dimension.  Yes, that is real sand!)

Then I found a collection of designer papers called "Beach Collection" from Memory Box in my stash.  The color combo I chose from there were the red, orange, lime and yellow; all of a sudden, I found a new "favorite" color combination.  Here are the results of that combo.

From that same Memory Box "Beach Collection" were some blue and lime papers, so they became a "favorite" combo as well.  Here are those results.

 Hope you like these colors.  I can't wait for the next release on Thursday.

Totally Stampalicious wants to know what we like to do for fun in the summer.  I pretty much do all my favorite things making cards, playing golf and eating anything chocolate.

Until I can talk Totally Stampalicious into making a female golfer, I guess I'll just say that my favorite summer activity is playing golf with my husband, nephew or great-nephew...represented here by my favorite stand-in, GUS!

I've posted these cards before, but I am re-posting them for this week's challenge.  These were all colored with Copics.  The 1st, 2nd and 4th cards have American Craft's "Celebration" designer paper.  The 3rd card has Karen Foster Designs "Mini Golf Ball" designer paper.
