It Is Time for a Color Challenge

Paper Players is out with another challenge.  This challenge is requiring Mint Macaron, Perfect Plum, and Sahara Sand.  So I am using so returning products and some that are not.  You’ve Got This and Better Together stamp sets are not retiring.  Along with Butterflies Thinlits. However, Perpetual Birthday Calendar and Falling Petals are leaving us.  Two of the colors. … Perfect Plum and Sahara Sand are returning, but we will miss Mint Macaron.

I did this card as a Sympathy card as I always feel we are short on these type of cards.  The Mint Macaron offers a smoothing effect. However, you can easily use it for a wide variety of occasions including Mother’s Day.

Stampin’ Up! Sympathy card made with You’ve Got This stamp set and designed by Demo Pamela Sadler. See more cards at #stampinkpinkrose #etsycardstrulyheart

Tips and Tricks

Color:  With Sympathy cards you need colors that work well together and give a calming effect. This is why Mint Macaron is so dear to my heart. It is also a neutral color for babies.

Stamp Set: As a reference above this card uses a mixture of stamp sets which tie the colors together.

You've Got This Clear-Mount Stamp SetPerpetual Birthday Calendar Photopolymer Stamp Set

  • You’ve Got This
  • Perpetual Calendar
  • Better Together (words)

Ink:  I was able to use all of the ink colors. Again, this keeps everything in balance and tied together.


  • Mint Macaron
  • Perfect Plum
  • Sahara Sand

Paper:   Now is when you don’t want to over do it in your paper colors.  Your focal is your flower and butterfly.To make that your focal use Whisper White so as not to distract.

  • Whisper White
  • Mint Macaron

Embellishment: The butterfly I feel always needs something in the middle. It is your choice pearls or rhinestones.

  • Rhinestone
  • Dimensionals


  • Falling Petals Embossing Folder
  • Big Shot
  • Buterflies Thinlits
