You’ve Got This – Sunday Stamps 119

Hello there! Today is Sunday and that means another challenge from the Sunday Stamps bi-weekly challenge! This week we have a color combination for you:

You've Got This - Sunday Stamps 119

My first impression of the inspiration photo was Christmas and I thought to myself “That’s got to be a mistake!” I was so caught up with the items in the photo that it took me a few moments to actually see the color banners! My interpretation of the colors was Cherry Cobbler, Early Expresso, Crumb Cake and Basic Gray. I pored through my stamp collection and found just the right thing!

I was thrilled to ink up this never-been-used-before stamp set called You’ve Got This by Stampin’ Up! I’m quite pleased with this color combination though it’s a bit outside of my box. This color combination can be used for both men and women and with the sentiment, I think it covers many occasions.

I went to grab Crumb Cake card stock and I always check my scrap bag first and found an already die-cut piece ready to go! Cool!


  • I stamped off once before stamping the background texture stamp in Crumb Cake ink. The flower is stamped in Early Expresso and the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.
  • I looked through my wash tape collection and found this cute red polka dot wash tape – perfect!
  • A simple hand trimmed banner fulfills the grey aspect of the challenge 🙂
  • One button topped off with a twine bow adds to the rustic feel of the color combination and adds a bit of pizzazz to the design
  • Two Cherry Cobbler candy dots are the perfect accent to balance the layout.
  • Adding to the inside and lining your envelopes is a simple way to add extra love to the project!

I’m on a mission to use every stamp in my stash as well as use some of that bling I love to buy but struggle to use! So be prepared to see more ‘stuff’ on my cards! Which do you prefer: clean and simple; a bit of bling; or do you like to add LOTS of bling? I would love to hear from you!

I hope that my project has inspired you to join us in this challenge, for more inspiration please visit these lovely ladies:

    I have stayed away from large image stamps like your flower because they are mostly shown colored. Seeing your card today gives me some ideas of alternate ways to use them. Thank you for the inspiration! ! Lovely card by the way! Almost forgot to mention that in my ramblings.

    Hi Shannon,

    I have to say, when I saw your card I wanted to totally “CASE” it … I absolutely love what you did.

    I especially like how you did NOT color the bloom but you added the color in the SENTIMENT. It WORKS!

    Great interpretation of this challenge! I’m really loving these colors together too!! Nice job indeed!
    As for the bling….I’m in the less–to no bling category. It fits my motto, less is more.
