Colour Challenge – CYCI#152

As I was rummaging through my drawers for the combination of colours for this challenge, I found some pre made element in my drawers – like the embossed Mint cardstock, a precut and scored cardbase in Sahara Sand, the strip of Designer series paper in Turquoise and the ring in Melon Mambo. Obviously left over elements from previous creations, so I added those in to my challenge this week to see how I could incorporate them.

I liked the colour combination this made and was close to the Can You Case It? #152 challenge colours for this week. Amber always has a colour combo up her sleeve. Check them out.

Here is what I created with these elements. A simple but colourful Hello card.

I have missing a few of my stamps of late – you know those ones that sit quietly and patiently on your shelf waiting for you to notice them again. The cute little flower is from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, which is about a year old now but haven’t used them lately.

Here I inked up the little flower using markers to get that coloured in look. I stamped it on some whisper white, which I had pre-punched with my Stitched Shapes framelits and adhered my Melon Mambo ring too. That gave me my boundaries for the stamped images. I added a little hello stamp in Tempting Turquoise to finish off.

Pretty Present – CYCI #146

The challenge colours this week over at Can You Case It? #146 are really cool. I wouldn’t have thought to put these together but don’t they look amazing together – Curry Yellow, Teal, Orange and Burgundy.

The colours I used for this challenge are Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler.

 

 

 

I kept it pretty simple this week, but the colours just make it pop, so I don’t think it needed over doing.

I used the gorgeous Stitched Shapes framelit dies for the base of my present. I just love the soft stitching detail these frame create. With a little Designer Series paper at the top and a plain strip of cardstock at the bottom, the present started coming together.

What is a present without a bow?! Here, I have punched out using the bow die from the Balloon Pop Up thinlit dies, and finished it off with a metal rimmed pearl for a little detail.
