JUST A REMINDER.........

Good Morning everyone!

Thought I'd just remind you all that there is no Colour Create challenge today as we are moving to a Thursday slot. See you on 4th of June for our next challenge and don't forget we will be giving away some candy to mark the change.

See you there!

Week Seventeen - Lemon, Pink Sorbet and Chocolate....

We're back again with another Colour Create Challenge and hope you can join in with us once again. Your entries for last week were amazing and you weren't put off by the slightly more specific colours. They were lovely to work with and we were most impressed with your efforts.

Before we move onto this week's challenge in more detail, there are two announcements to bring to you.

Firstly, it is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Kim. She has been a wonderful team member and will be sadly missed, but she wishes to spend more time with the newest addition to her family and has other work commitments too. Take care Kim and we hope you can still join in with Colour Create when you get time. And remember, the door is always open for your return ;o)

Secondly, THIS IS THE LAST COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE TO TAKE PLACE ON A SUNDAY. WE ARE MOVING TO A THURSDAY SLOT FROM 4TH OF JUNE, so you will have a little bit longer to come up with your entries for this week. In order to mark the change we will be giving away some candy for the first Thursday challenge, so don't forget to tune in!

Right, we best get on with business! This week's challenge has been created by our lovely Katy. Katy has a wonderful blog and makes the most stunning cards. Her layouts are always so inspiring and she creates an amazing 3D feel with her cards. Katy has an eye for the unusual and always manages to spot the latest trends before everyone else. She was certainly one of the first people to get her hands on the Martha Stewart Doily Edge Punch! Hop over to her blog to see some awesome cards and prepare to be impressed!

Here is your colour combination then:











For this week's extra option we would like you to think shabby chic when creating your project, but please remember that this is not compulsory.


GOOD LUCK!!!

Week Sixteen - Sky Blue, Tan and Ecru......

Good morning to you all and we hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. Thank you so much for visiting us again here at Colour Create.

Firstly we would like to say a huge thank you to all of you who took part in last week's challenge. We have now smashed all previous records with 144 entries! WOW! I know that we at the Design Team felt it was a great challenge for us and when we saw your cards we could tell you felt the same. Your entries were amazing - we had no idea there were so many shades of green and blue out there!!!!

This week's challenge has been created by our lovely Kim. I'm sure she needs very little introduction as her cards are adored throughout blogland. Kim definitely loves her Magnolia stamps and I am so delighted to tell you that she has been asked to be part of the Magnolia Design Team......... yes, THE Magnolia Design Team!!!!! Congratulations Kim!!! Hop over and take a look at her work if you get a few minutes - it's amazing!!!


Here is your colour combination then:























For this week's extra option we would like you to add gloss, glitter or glaze to your creations (or all three if you like), but please remember that this is not compulsory. I can assure you that we have all included this element somewhere on our projects, but you may just have to zoom in to pick it up!



GOOD LUCK!!!

Week Fifteen - Blue and Green......

Ooooh it's Sunday again and that means Colour Create! I love it when we reach this day of the week!!

So you're certainly inspired by food then. Mina's colours got the creative juices flowing and a big thank you to everyone who managed to join us. You made some beautiful cards and projects and it was an absolute pleasure to visit you all! I hope at least one of the team was able to leave you a comment - we do try very hard with this but with so many entries we cannot all comment on every blog every week. I personally visit each and every one of you to see what you've created, although I am only able to leave comments on a proportion. I just wanted to explain how we operate our commenting - each Design Team member visits at least ten blogs to leave a comment, but we all try to leave more if and when we can.

As you already know, Juliet is our Guest Designer for May and has created another stunning card for you. Well, I'm delighted to tell you that she has been asked to join our team permanently and has accepted the invitation. Welcome Juliet, we're so pleased to have you on board ;o)

This week's challenge has been created by our lovely Heather. She makes the most stunning cards and projects and is always a pleasure to work with. The colours and papers she chooses are just beautiful and she has amazing attention to detail. Heather is a perfectionist and you can tell this in her work - sometimes she will throw away 2 or 3 projects before she has everything just right!

Here is your colour combination then:























For this week's extra option we would like you to apply some paper piecing to your creations, but please remember that this is not compulsory.



GOOD LUCK!!!

Week Fourteen - Red, Cream and Chocolate........

Welcome back to another week on Colour Create and thank you for joining us again!

We've had a wonderful week with Jo's Orange, Brown and Green and it seems you won't be put off by the extra option of making a male card either! There have been some more fabulous creations and I hope we managed to get round to you all again.

We have the first card this week from our Guest Designer Juliet and it is stunning. I hope you will be as impressed as we are by her amazing creations.

Sadly, I must also tell you that we have lost one of our regular team members Sarita. She has been a highly valued member of this team since the start and we hope she may be able to come back to us some time in the future. Take care Sarita and best wishes from us all.

This week's challenge has been created by our lovely Mina. She joined the team very soon after we started, having made her first appearance as a guest designer. When I saw Mina's work I just knew we had to have her on a permanent basis - she had very little choice in the matter, lol! Mina has some stunning, original ideas when it comes to her creations and is a constant source of inspiration. She is now a member of several challenge teams - I really don't know how she does it!!

Here is your colour combination then (and if you're on a diet please turn away now):


















For this week's extra option we would like you to add ribbons to your creations, but please remember that this is not compulsory.



GOOD LUCK!!!
