Colour Challenge – CYCI#148

How much fun is it entering Can You Case It? challenges on Facebook now? So easy, isn’t it? You can link to your blog post if you have one, or just upload a photo directly into the comments of the Challenge post. We’ve had such a great response since the change over a month ago, so a big thank you for following and playing along with us.

A little more news – Can You Case It? will be back weekly starting this month with alternate Colour and Sketch challenges again. I’m so excited! I’ve really missed the Sketches, they are a favourite of mine. So I hope you’ll be playing along with those too.

Okay on to this weeks set of colours, we have – Gray, Yellow, Turquoise and White.

 

 

 

Here is the card I made… It’s a gate fold with a front panel.

I was really excited to see the diamond design paper in the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer series paper stack – perfect for this colour challenge.

I decorated the front with this paper on the base card panels. I used that gorgeous carousel from the Carousel Birthday stamp set, I just love those cupcake carriages! The Up & Away thinlit dies set has a little cloud like die that fits these cake toppers, making it so easy to stamp and punch colour coordinating carriage tops.

Here is how the fold looks from the top.

Inside, I wanted to neaten off the join where the front panel overlaps the base card front panel. This is how I achieved that – by sticking a coordinating piece of the diamond patterned DSP over the part sticking out. This made the join much smoother as they now sit at the same level. I added some more of the diamond patterned DSP down the right side of the white panel to match.

Oh and don’t you love how the sentiment on the front and inside work beautifully together? The styling just works too.

Okay… so now it’s your turn. I can’t wait to see what you create with these awesome colours. You have until Midday on Saturday 11th March (AEDT) to enter. The post will be live here on our Facebook Challenge Group – you just need to post your entry into the comments.

Don’t they look yummy enough to eat!

Here is my INKspiration:

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Carousel Birthday, Birthday blast

Of the six colours, I focussed on three – Peekaboo Peach, Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride.

This card features those adorable carousel horses. They are from the Carousel Birthday stamp set, new in the Occasions Catalogue. I loved them the minute I saw them. I think they just instantly transport you back your childhood dreams of riding Unicorns and having ponies. There is just something magical about them, don’t you think?

Also featured is that lovely large stamp the from Birthday Blast stamp set, I’ve used in the background. Those little star accent are punched out using the coordinating Star Blast edgelit. This is the negative space from the edgelit detail.

So now it’s your turn… create a project and upload it to the facebook group using these wonderful colours. Entries close Monday, 23 January (AEDT) at 7pm.

So next in line to share some more INKspiration is the very talented Jackie Noble.
