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.

Winter Shaker Scene

Cards, Christmas Card

Hi Everyone! Today I’m sharing a winter shaker scene card using stamps from Penny Black.

Of course I have a how-to video to share with you. As well, by popular demand, I’m also going to share a short video showing you how I set up my Silhouette studio file to cut the front panel and frame on my Silhouette Portrait. You can watch both videos below, or over on my YouTube channel.

My Silhouette video is very quick so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments or by sending me an e-mail.

Colouring Penny Black Flowers with Distress Ink

Any occasion, Cards

Hello, my beautiful crafty friends! It’s Wednesday so that means it’s time for more Colour Me! fun. This week the challenge is to create a project using turquoise, teal, and green.

For my card, I used the Penny Black stamp, Divine, and my Distress Inks to colour the images. Of course I let the camera roll as I created the card so that I can share the how-to video with you. You can watch the video below, or on my YouTube channel.
