Colour Me! Challenge – Be Joyful

Cards, Christmas Card, Holiday Card

Welcome! Today is a sad day because it’s the Colour Me Challenge’s final challenge. This week marks challenge #100, so it’s time to wrap up. This week is a monochromatic challenge using sky blue.

I of course have a how-to video to share with you, but before I get to that I’d like to just tell you how the Colour Me challenge brightened my life.

If you’re a regular follower of my blog, or YouTube channel, you’ll know that I’m fairly new to the crafting game. About two years ago, I had been experimenting with cardmaking and wanted to start playing along with the CMCC. The CMCC has always been a place of positivity and support and it gave me enough confidence to spread my wings and participate in other areas of the online cardmaking community. It was also the first ever design team that I contributed to. My experience with the CMCC has inevitably coloured the way I have continued on my cardmaking journey,  and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have participated in such a positive voice.

Now, onto my card for this week. As with most monochromatic cards, I like to use the colour sparingly so that it doesn’t overpower the card. You can see how I created my card below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Java Great Day

Any occasion, Cards

Welcome! Today I’m sharing a bright card for this week’s Colour Me! challenge. The challenge this week is to create a project using yellow, red, and suede (brown-grey).

CMCC98

The bright colous of the challenge reminded me of those Pantone mugs, so I pulled out my What’s Brewing stamp set from SimonSaysStamp and got to work. You can watch me create my card in my how-to video, below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I wasn’t exactly sure how my card was going to come together, so I just kind of made it up as I went along. Lucky for me everything turned out great and I’m happy with the cheerful card I created with simple embellishments.

Lawn Fawn | Stuck on You

Any occasion, Cards

Howdy! It’s already time for another Colour Me! challenge post. This week the challenge is to create a project using the colour pumpkin.

CMCC92

I made a simple card using stamps from Lawn Fawn and Distress ink. I let my camera roll as I created my project. You can watch the tutorial below, or on my YouTube channel.

I love how the cactus stamps create the perfect silhouette against the orange background.

That’s it for today. Thanks so much for dropping by.

Mirror Mirror | Princess Card

Any occasion, Cards

Hi Crafty Friends! I hope you’re having a magical day that has put you in the mood for an enchanted card. For today’s Colour Me! challenge post, I’m playing along with Team Hayley so my challenge was to create a project using mint, pink, and greige.

CMCC91

The challenge colours this week reminded me of an enchanted princess so I just ran with that idea. As usual, I let my camera roll while I was creating so I have a how-to tutorial to share with you. You can watch the video below, or on my YouTube channel.

Like I mentioned, the colours this week really reminded me of an enchanted princess fairytale. No princess fairytale is complete without some sparkle and shine, so I used silver glitter paper, as well as Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins to pull the whole card together.

To be honest, once I finished the card, I thought I maybe went a little overboard with the princess theme, but I let it sit for a couple days and decided that while princesses maybe aren’t my thing, someone out in the craft-verse would enjoy it…right?!

Of course there is plenty more inspiration this week from the other designers–

Colouring Lawn Fawn using Spectrum Noir Markers

Birthday Cards, Cards

Hello my crafty friends. Welcome to another Colour Me! post. This week the challenge is to create a project using four colours: turquoise, salmon, green, and mustard.

CMCC90

For my project, I recreated a card that I made for my Dad’s birthday last week. I wanted to showcase a unique way to use your Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to create an almost watercoloured look. As usual, I let me camera roll as I created the card so you can watch the how-to video below, or on my YouTube channel.

I mentioned in a blog post last week that I have been obsessed with using stitched oval frames on my cards recently. For me, they are just a classic window into a story. I create my frames using my Silhouette portrait machine. If you don’t know how to add the stitched detail in Silhouette Studio, I have a YouTube tutorial that you can watch here to learn how.

Don’t forget to visit out other designers for even more inspiration on using this unique colour combo–
