It’s Monday! And our colour challenge this week is…

Monday Colour Challenge with the Tranquil Thoughts Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

This week’s colour challenge….

  • Garden Green
  • Mango Melody
  • Flirty Flamingo

It was so tempting to get out the Friendly Flamingo stamp set, instead I turned the the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set.

I’ve used this before for a challenge, but this time I am using some of the additional dies in the bundle too.

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

Adding the ink with a blending brush brings out the embossed detail from the die.

Here’s a close up of the original sample. Which is your favourite?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Monday Colour Challenge with Today’s Tiles

Hello Everyone,

We have an interesting set of colours to work with this week….

  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Seaside Spray
  • Pear Pizzazz

I wanted to use the Today’s Tiles stamp set before it retires.

This set lends itself to use with the Stamparatus tool slowing the repositioning of the stamp to create this background.

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

It’s a tough call to pick my favourite with this one!

Monday Colour Challenge with Under My Umbrella

Hello Everyone,

Here we are at Monday again and another colour challenge!

This week’s combo is;

  • Soft Suede
  • Shaded Spruce
  • So Saffron

I don’t use Soft Sueded and So saffron very often. After rummaging through the retiring stamp sets I settled on using Under My Umbrella to make a first floral background.

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

So what do we think? Which do you prefer? If I’d have had enough Shaded Spruce cardstock I would tried that too! Lol!

Here’s a close up of the So Saffron version!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Hello Everyone,

This week’s colour challenge…..

  • Terracotta Tile
  • Real Red
  • Smoky Slate

Terracotta Tile is one of the retiring in colours. If you want any of these colours in ink or accessories order soon.

I have chosen the Game On stamp set to work with. This is in the annual catalogue… I wonder if this will carry over to the new issue…

Fussy Cutting isn’t for everyone, but thought it was worth it for this project…

Monday Colour Challenge with the Waterfront stamp set

Hello Everyone,

It’s colour challenge Monday…. This one had me thinking!

I decided to use the Waterfront stamp set. This set is one of my older sets, and it’s a real possibility that this will retire when the new annual catalogue launches in May! Watch this space for more info!

This layout uses first, second and third generation stamping to create depth with a single colour ink pad.

See how I made my card in my video tutorial…

I hope you liked my tip on using the ink pad to make the edge of the panel more defined.

All the “C”s Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Wow… What a challenge this was!

I was completely thrown by the Coastal Cabana but I like the end result! Ideally I think I would have used this as my layer instead of the Crushed Curry!

I’m still unsure whether I prefer the Coastal Cabana or Crushed Curry resin dots – what do you think?

Colour Challenges with Pretty Perennials

Hello Everyone,

Here we are again, the start of another week of lockdown here in the UK!

Today’s cards have been made for a couple of Facebook colour challenges;

  • Highland Heathe
  • Just Jade
  • Gray Granite

And….

  • Old Olive
  • Petal Pink
  • Night of Navy

I chose to work with the Pretty Perennials bundle. It is so versatile and great value for money. For a few extra pounds, you will also qualify for a Sale-a-bration item!

You can see the cardmaking process in my video tutorial….

I tweaked the layout slightly from the original so it was a little more balanced.

The Pastel Pearls from the Hydrangea Hill suite were perfect for this card!

This project was made as a bit of fun after a little Facebook Challenge so I recreated the card in a different colour way.

I chose Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay, (never sure if this a blue or a green?)

The original colour challenge used Merry Merlot, Real Red and Magenta Madness!
