Week Twenty One - Pistachio Green, Aqua and Powder Pink

A warm welcome back to all you followers of Colour Create and a very happy Thursday!

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us again for last week's challenge - the fruity theme had us all salivating and we really enjoyed seeing all your scrummy work.

This week's challenge has been chosen by our lovely Juliet and I think she has picked a perfect colour combo, it's so pretty! Sadly, we are actually saying goodbye to Juliet, who has decided to take a break from crafting for a while as she has just returned to work. We will miss her beautiful creations so much and hope to see more from her in the not-too-distant future ;o)

So, onto the details then:

Here is a picture to help you out a bit..........


















And now for the optional extra...... a nice easy one this week which is to use buttons somewhere in your creation. Please remember that this isn't compulsory though and that you may combine our challenge with any other you feel like entering ;o)



GOOD LUCK!!!



Here are the Design Team cards for this week....

Week Twenty - Any 3 of these: Strawberry, Raspberry, Kiwi, Tangerine and Blackberry

A warm welcome back to all you followers of Colour Create and a very happy Thursday!

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us again for last week's challenge - as the weather gets a bit warmer we're seeing some very pretty, summery cards!

This week none of our team have stepped down and we have nobody new to introduce, however our Katy is having a rest and will hopefully be back to play along again next week ;o)

It's about time we invited someone to be our guest for July don't you think? We will pick somebody at random from the entries we receive this week and will then announce who our guest will be at the start of next week's challenge....... good luck everyone!

So when I was sitting having a think about a theme and some colours for this week's challenge I realised that the Wimbledon tennis tournament is about to start in the UK. Anyone who sits glued to this like me will know that it conjurs up thoughts of eating strawberries and cream or drinking Pimms and lemonade packed with summer fruits....... or even better both, lol! So that's the inspiration for our challenge - fruits. Choose ANY THREE of the following colours; Strawberry, Raspberry, Kiwi, Tangerine and Blackberry. We'd hate to think that you couldn't play along because you don't have quite the right shades of these colours, so a little bit of artistic licence is just fine.......... I suppose we're talking Red, Pink, Green, Orange and Black really, but don't they sound scrummy when you give them fruity names?!

Here is a picture to help you out a bit..........


















And now for the optional extra...... we're staying with the fruit theme for this one, so we would like you to incorporate fruits somewhere into your design, be it the papers, the image, the embellishments or the sentiment. Please remember that this isn't compulsory though and that you may combine our challenge with any other you feel like entering ;o)



GOOD LUCK!!!

Week Nineteen - Blush Pink, Lilac and Mossy Green

Hello again everyone and welcome back!

I think you were well and truly tested by last week's colours and theme - sorry, but they can't always be easy, hee hee! True to form though you did the business once again and there were oodles of amazing entries for us to enjoy. We have had one or two problems leaving comments over the past couple of days, so if your entry hasn't been acknowledged we do apologise.

Before I tell you about this week's colours and theme, I have two things to announce. Firstly, we need a winner for the candy prize offered to anyone entering last week's challenge (only those who didn't combine challenges were entered into the draw) - and the lucky winner is...................

LYDIA

Well done to you - if you email me through my own blog here and provide details of your address, I will get the goodies posted out to you.

My second piece of news is that we're welcoming another new designer to our team this week. Dena has joined us on a permanent basis and we have gained another wonderful cardmaker who produces some stunning creations and has supported our challenge almost every week - welcome aboard Dena!

My lovely daughter Georgia has been desperate to come up with the colours and theme for one of our challenges, so this week's choice is all down to her........


Here is your colour combination then:













For the extra option we would like you to use die cuts on your card or project (and these can be cut with a machine or precut in a sheet), but please remember that this is not compulsory.


GOOD LUCK!!!

Week Eighteen - Colours of the Rainbow

Good morning and welcome to our new Thursday slot at Colour Create. Thank you for bearing with us whilst we made the move and we hope you will continue to join in with our challenges. Huge apologies to anyone who left their link with Mr Linky for last week's challenge. It seems there are some major hiccups with this way of entering challenges at the minute so we will revert back to the old way for the time being, where you add a link to your card by leaving a comment. There are some details at the end of this post if you need help adding your link. We saw some fabulous creations again last week and you used Katy's colours beautifully. Phew there really is some talent out there and it's a pleasure to discover new blogs along the way!

We welcome a new designer to our team this week. Di has joined us on a permanent basis and we are all thrilled as she makes stunning cards and will certainly be an inspiration to us all. Welcome to the team Di, we hope you have lots of fun! Sadly, we are saying goodbye to Judy, who has stepped down from her DT post due to family commitments. We will really miss you Judy and hope you can still join in from time to time ;o)

Before announcing details of this week's challenge, we are pleased to offer some candy as a 'thank you' for putting up with the changes we've made this week. One lucky winner will receive the following items and all we ask is that you only enter this challenge if you would like to be entered into the draw. Otherwise, please feel free as always to combine our challenge with any others you fancy entering.

The candy consists of:
DCWV Spring Stack Papers
Papermania Flowery Border Strips
Hobbycraft Lilac Wired Organza Ribbon
Queen & Co Pink Felt Fusion Ribbon
Papermania Snag'em Stamp Duo
White Fabric Roses



















I'm back choosing the colours for a little while now and I hope you won't be put off by this week's choice - it is a little bit tricky but I have every faith in you all!



Here is your colour combination then:


















Come on, you know the song....... Red and Yellow and Pink and Green, Orange and Purple and Blue, I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too.....
So, please use as many of the rainbow colours as you can in your creation this week.

For the extra option we would like you to create a scene on your card or project, but please remember that this is not compulsory.


GOOD LUCK!!!
