ColourQ Challenge #323

Hey Everyone

I’m back with a card that I made for the colour challenge at colourQ.  I am loving these colours together:

I think I’ve said this before that I often need help with a layout when I’m combing more than two colours.  For inspiration I’ve used this sketch from the already closed challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I liked it as soon as I saw it for my card as it made combining these colours really easy.

I’ve gone with Stampin’ Up!s retired Six Sided Sampler and Tape It.

Now I may not have made my card a long as everyone else but I was going from memory of the sketch when I went out to my craft room as my son took over my laptop for a few hours.  Have you noticed how many colours I’ve combined here? I really am trying to challenge myself by getting out of my monochromatic comfort-zone 🙂

Just Add Ink #249

Hey Everyone

We have a sketch challenge for you at Just Add Ink this week.

I had these hexy’s sitting unused on my desk from a challenge that I didn’t get around to enter and decided to put them to the good use on my card.  They’re not normally colours I would reach for but I’m trying combinations outside of my comfort zone.  I think this card would work well for either a female or a man.

Just Add Ink #243

Hey Everyone

This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is a colour challenge. Take a look at these pretty colours:

Can you believe this is my card? Don’t think I’ve ever created a white on white card like this. I felt the white card base was the best way to balance out these four colours.  In the end I channeled my inner-CAS and this is what I came up with.

Take a look at the gorgeous inspiration the Design Team – I love how they’ve combined these colours.

Thanks for stopping by.

I STILL haven’t got my first order from the 2014-2015 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.  All I have is cardstock and ink from the pre-order so I had to make do with my limited products.  I decided to “make” some DSP to match the Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey colour scheme by randomly stamping dots from Happy Watercolour. The embellishments just seemed to keep piling on and this is what I ended up with – you know I love “fullness” to my cards!

For a little while now I’ve been meaning to use my Stampin’ Up! set called Six Sided Sampler.  I’ve used this stamp set once and I think I may need to use it more than once to get my $46.95 use out of it.  I’ve planned ahead and made a card for my niece who will be having a birthday in November.  My card is a little different in that I’ve got more white on my card than I normally have – I was trying to get more clean look that I admire on other peoples card.

Freshly Made Sketches #99

Hey Everyone

The very talented Rita is this weeks sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches.

FMS99sketch

I’ve gone with hexagons on my card instead of circles as I was determined to make use of my Stampin’ Up! hexagon stamp set and matching punch at least once.  The stamp set is called Six-Sided Sampler and even though I’m seeing the most beautiful cards, I’ve struggling to make one that I like.
