Challenge Five - Blue and Brown

Welcome!

Here we are then, Sunday has arrived yet again!

Once more we would like to thank you all so much for joining us for last week's challenge and creating such fabulous cards once again! You really seemed to like the pink and grey colours we asked you to use and what's not to like about cute and cuddly?!

We are being very gentle with you this week, using a tried and tested colour combination with an extra option you're sure to like. You see, we don't make it difficult every single week, lol!

Here is your colour combination then:




















For this week's extra option we would like you to use lace and pearls, but please remember that this is not compulsory.

We would like to welcome Kim onto the Design Team as a permanent member and look forward to seeing many more of her wonderful creations. She was asked to join us from the very start, but had to delay this for a few weeks due to other commitments.

It also gives us great pleasure to introduce this week's guest designer Lynsey, it is a real honour to have her joining us for this week's challenge.

Finally, remember that you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other you would like to take part in during the week. GOOD LUCK!!!

Hello again!

Wow, doesn't Sunday come around quickly when we're all having fun!

Firstly, a big 'thank you' to those of you that entered last weeks challenge; it certainly wasn't the easiest colour scheme or extra option! It's lovely to see so many of you returning week after week to have a go and each week we are all amazed with your creations.

This week is my fave so far, I think the colours work so well together and, as you can see from the Design Team cards, there are many shades to choose from! Here is your colour combination then:


















For this week's extra option we would like you to think 'cute and cuddly', but please remember that this is not compulsory.

We would like to welcome Mina onto the Design Team as a permanent member and look forward to seeing many more of her wonderful creations.

It also gives us great pleasure to introduce this week's guest designer Bev, her cards are amazing and we are privileged to have her with us this week.

Hello to you all!

Welcome to Week Three of our challenge and a big thank you to those of you who took time out to join us last week, we really enjoyed seeing all your wonderful entries and, in particular, your DIY flowers. I think we took many of you out of your comfort zone but you told us you really enjoyed this!

Not sure if you'll think we're being any easier on you this week, hee hee!

So here are the details of this week's challenge then....

















We would like you to make your card or project this week using the colours red, white and blue.

There is an extra option available which you can use if you wish, although this isn't compulsory. This week's option is 'Holidays and Travel' and I hope that the wonderful Design Team cards will give you the inspiration you need.

Challenge Two - Peach and Aqua

Firstly we would all like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in our first challenge, we had an amazing response and really enjoyed looking at all your wonderful creations! I know that some of you thought the colours were a little challenging but you made some wonderful cards and projects.

It gives us great pleasure to announce the winner of our candy giveaway..... congratulations go to Alison from Ali's Space. Please email your details so that we can get the prize sent out to you as soon as possible. We hope you will have lots of fun with your goodies!

We have selected a guest designer at random to join us for Week Three, welcome Mina and thanks for agreeing to play with us next week.

Without further ado here are the details of this week's challenge then:

















Please make your card using Peach and Aqua. You can also use cream/white for your cardstock and flesh colours for any images.

There is an extra option available which you can use if you wish, although this isn't compulsory. This week's option is 'DIY flowers', which means not using any pre made, bought flowers on your cards and projects. Here are some ideas which might help:

Stamp a flower onto card and cut it out

Punch and layer flowers

Die cut flowers

Doodle your own flowers

Stitch flowers

Peel and mount stickers to form a flower

Use shaped petals eg, hearts to form a flower

Make flowers from Nestie shapes

Make a ribbon flower


I'm sure there are lots more ways, please feel free to come up with your own! Don't forget that embossing, distressing, ink edging, etc will all add to the effect and you could add a stamen to the centre. Also glitter, glossy accents, liquid pearl drops might work well. Unusual materials might include tissue paper, vellum, acetate, chipboard...... just a few ideas.



Finally, remember that you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other you would like to take part in during the week. GOOD LUCK!!!
