I'm the TCP Tuesday Hipster Hostess With The Mostess!

Hi ya'll! This week, The Cat's Pajamas is bringing you a fun and summery Color Challenge! You normally would find Jen doing the TCP Color Challenges (because she comes up with some great ones), but this week, I'm filling in for her as the Hipster Hostess With The Mostess (because I'm so nice like that).
She actually DID pick these colors out before going out of town and they are fabulous!! Can you guess why?--um, hello yellow!! Make that Sunny Yellow, throw in a little Pumpkin Orange and Rasberry Pink and what a great combo for all of us bright color lovers! By the way, I'll be your Hostess With The Mostess next week too. I'll be coming up with the TCPTUES Stamp Challenge from here on out, so be sure and stop back by next Tuesday as well. I'm excited to be offering that here on my blog! I expect participation from every one of ya'll or else I might have to put you in time out!

We hope you get to play with us. Here's the details on how you can be a part of the action:
1. Each a week one of The Cat’s Pajamas DT members will host a challenge.
2. The challenges will vary {stamp, color, theme, sketch, etc.}
3. You will have until {this} Saturday night to complete the challenge.
4. Link your project on this week’s hostess’ challenge announcement. This week you will link your project that you have posted on your blog or in the SCS gallery by adding a comment and link on this post, making sure your link is correct and posting it by midnight Saturday, April 11th.
5. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}
6. There will be one winner each month. They will be deemed that month’s Swankiest Stamper and get $25 in Cat’s Cash {money to spend on the TCP site!}.
7. When uploading to SCS, please use the keyword TCPTUES53 for this challenge.
8. Alma will post the entries from the week the following Monday on her blog.
9. The newly crowned Swanky Stamper will be announced on the First of the Month and have his/her winning entry posted on The Cat’s Pajamas website where he/she will reign for the entire month!
10. HAVE FUN!!!

SUSIE Q-TIP: This one has nothing to do with my card for today, but just something I told a friend about yesterday. When you use the little file tab punch from SU!, score it along the "folding line" and then fold it. Your fold will be nice and neat and won't ever be crooked if you line it up just right. (Hi, Joy!)

Stamps: Hearts and Flowers, It's Your Day (The Cat's Pajamas)
Paper: Pumpkin Pie (SU!), Rasberry Fizz, White (PTI), October Afternoon
Ink: Palette Noir (Superior)
Accessories: Bloom Dots Embossing Folder/Cuttlebug, Scallop and Circle Punches, Paper Piercer/Mat Pack, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Inksentials White Gel Pen (Ranger), Copic Markers, Dimensionals, Brad (Target $1)

  15. I ended up loving these colors - not ones I'd normally pick, but how summery! Here are my two attempts!

  16. Hi Susan!
    Great color challenge. Here's mine. I was dying to use my snail image after seeing your card.


  17. Phew, I think I got my entry in under the wire! It's really dark now, so please excuse my photography, I'll take a better one tomorrow!

    Thanks so much!!

  18. I know I'm late, but here's my card anyway:

    I didn't have time to photograph it last night, as I was putting it out - it was "from" the Easter Bunny ;)

  19. Wow, wow, wow, Susan, what a FANTASTIC card. Love the colors, and every element harmonizes so nicely with the others. TFS your fab work.

  20. Yeah! This card beckons me toward the warm and sunny days of summer...I am an educator so summer is where I want to be!!

  21. Woo-hoo-hoo! This is bright!!! Love it, though - makes me feel like summer is here already!
