CCG#246: A Bit of Americana


A new inspiration challenge is up at Color Combos Galore!



Design Team Guests

These are very talented members of our creative community who will be working alongside our team throughout the month creating inspirational projects for you. You can share in their joy HERE in the Community Forum, where you can meet and congratulate them all, and get to know them better too!


If you are new to Color Combos Galore, or just not sure how to play along, then I suggest you watch Janet’s video. It's everything you need to know about playing the challenges, for example, the challenge format, Inspiration Board, important Rules and How to Play details.  Each Inspiration Photo and "Focus On"  Challenge is also discussed by Janet.  Janet gives more ideas of inspiration not listed or seen in the Reveal.  It’s very in depth and detailed—THANK YOU, Janet! Clicking on the Inspiration Board below will take you to details for this week’s challenge at Color Combos Galore AND to this week’s video.

Below are some details regarding the above card I made for this week’s challenge.

Inspiration Photo #4/Focus On Theme: Postal/Air Mail
I used a postal stamp and designed the look of the card to resemble a postcard using die cuts purchased through Silhouette America Online Store and digital kits I used from  The links to these digital kits can be accessed through photos below, like the map patterned paper, etc.
