Team Colour Challenge

Every fortnight I provide my team with a challenge to get their mojo flowing… all team members are welcome to join in and a random winner is chosen from the entries to win a Stampin’ Up! prize. One fortnight a month is a sketch challenge and the other is a colour challenge. In the past, I haven’t “played along” with the challenges because I’m normally posting about them at the last minute… but I’m trying to be more organised and I’m excited by today’s post as it is my first card in a team challenge.

This fortnight is a colour challenge, inspired by the fun my boys have jumping in puddles during the winter months.

Also part of my organisational plan is to create ONE card for more than one purpose. For example, today’s card will be used as my example for the above challenge, but it was also used as a birthday card for one of Master INK’s friends.

I tried desperately to include all six colours from the challenge but when it came to the crunch, I didn’t have any Wisteria Wonder cardstock for an extra banner on the card and I thought stamping purple on the card might make it lose its male tone.

I’m obsessed with the Stitched Shape framelits and have used 2 of the larger circles in Real Red and Night of Navy on my card. I’ve then used the Labeller Alphabet stamp set (again!) to personalise the card for the birthday boy!

Would LOVE it if you would play along with our colour challenge. It is a great masculine colour theme and with Father’s Day just around the corner, it might be just what you need to get your mojo going.

Happy Crafting,

Global Design Project #097

Yep, I’m having one of those weeks where I’m being super productive so am back today with another challenge entry. This time I’m having some fun with a colour challenge (#GDP097) over at the Global Design Project. This week they’re challenging us with this cool colour combination:

How delicious does it look? And speaking of delicious, all the colours today are named after foods! Cake, Berries & Wasabi. Yum, Yum, Blah! Wild Wasabi is not my “go to” green for projects but I really think it complements the Berry Burst colour in this combination.

For my project today I focused on using Berry Burst and Wild Wasabi for the card and used a Crumb Cake card base to include all 3 colours in my project. I had some fun making a cute shaker card for this week’s challenge.

I love polka dots and spots so focused my card on using them on the outside and on the inside of the shaker.

I threaded some silver sequins off the Silver Mini Sequin Trim to add a bit of bling to the card… then added them on some of the polka dots on the outside of the shaker to make it sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you’ve got time, why not pop on over and the the Global Design Project challenge yourself! Or if you can’t create for this one, be sure to pop back early next week to see what their next challenge is.

Happy Crafting,
