Inspire.Create.Challenges #128 – Colour Challenge!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog today. This project is my design team inspiration for our next change… And it’s my fave… A colour challenge!

You can take par by visiting he Inspire.Create.Challenges blog HERE where you will also find the other design team ideas!

I have pulled out the Framed Occasions stamp set and the Splatters and Stripes embossing folders to use.

I added colour to the layering panel and embossing using blending brushes. I was careful not to overlap … That would make brown!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #121 – Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone

Welcome to my blog! Today’s post is my design team project for the Inspire.Create.Challenge!

This time we have this amazing colour combination to work with!

You can see the other design team projects and participate in the challenge HERE

I created my card with the Framed Occasions stamp set, accented with the Flowers of Friendship.

There is a coordinating punch for these flowers which makes them a little easier to work with! You can of course fussy cut the flowers if you prefer.

Whilst there is no “green” in this combo, I thought I could get away with using the Pool Party and Bermuda Bay for the foliage. I think it worked out really well with the other colours.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…

I’ll confess Pale Papaya isn’t my favourite colour so I kept it as an accent to the sentiment and brought it through in the ribbon and card base.

This sample uses the Pool Party Sheer ribbon and the rhinestones were coloured in Poppy Parade.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I was looking for some colour inspiration to make another version of this card design featuring the Alphabest Bundle.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

The Dots and Spots die adds interest to the background.

Double embossing the letters gave them a super glossy look.

For this sample I used Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla die cuts. The lettering was stamped using Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green.
