I loved this combo using a selection of the 2022 in colours!

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.

Creating Backgrounds with the Artistic Mix Masks

The masks overlay each other to create the design, but could equally be used individually.

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

I added simple sentiments accented with Stylish Shapes die cuts.

This version uses Sahara Sand and Starry Sky inks for a more masculine look.

Which colour combination would you use?

Easy Cards with the Hand-penned Designer Series Paper

Hello Everyone,

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge really got me thinking about ways to use designer series paper… One of my current favourites is the Hand-Penned collection!

Using this layout it is possible to make 6 of these cards from a single 12 by 12 sheet of paper.

These are the results with a different design from the paper pack! The main colour in this design is Pale Papaya.
