I have this funny thing about combining different shades of reds, or even red & orange. So when I saw the color challenge for the Paper Players was Calypso Coral, Real Red, & Black, my first thought was, ooh, I don’t think I am going to like this. But that thought only lasted a fraction of second, quickly followed by the thought that the Stacked with Love Specialty Designer Paper was Real Red, Crisp Canteloupe and Calypso Coral along with Black & White. Fear and doubt were quickly replaced with thoughts of easy peasy!
The solid color cardstock forms the backdrop for the pennants. I cut Real Red and Calypso Coral into 2″ x 3″ triangles. And cut the little letters from Basic Black cardstock using the Little Letters Thinlits dies.
The Stacked with Love DSP gave me the fun part! I used the 1-1/4″ Scalloped Circle Punch to create little backdrops for my letters and little banners for the spacer pennants.
If you’d like to see what the Paper Players did with this color challenge, head on over. Challenge yourself and play along. I’d love to see what you create with this color combination!.
