Colour Me! #71 – Lawn Fawn Watermelon Card

Any occasion, Cards

Hello everyone! Thanks for dropping by for another Colour Me challenge post. This week the challenge is to create a project using pink and green.


For once, my inspiration came from the challenge badge. Lucky for me I had a mini Lawn Fawn stamp set with a watermelon stamp. I just ran with the summer theme and went a little crazy with the pink! Make sure to watch the video to see how I created this easy card–


Shout out to my Dad who suggested that I create my own punny sentiment for the card. Other suggestions in the running were: seed you soon, seeds on greetings, water ya up to?, and melon cally.

I made a funny mistake while making this card. Have you spotted it yet? When I created my own custom greeting, I accidentally used a Q instead of an O! Whoopsie!

Make sure to visit the other designers on the team for some bright inspiration–

Supplies for this card:

One note of business before I sign off. I recently started what I hope to be a weekly feature on my YouTube channel – TGIF with Julia. I plan to post a video each Friday where I just let the camera roll as I create, colour and plan. These videos will be longer than my usual tutorials so I hope that you’ll be able to sit back and enjoy while I create.

Until next time,



Colour Me #70 – Flat Vellum Shaker Card

Cards, cmcc70, Shaker Card

Welcome! I’m going to keep things short and sweet today. Today is Wednesday, so that means a new Colour Me! challenge. The challenge this week is to create a project using only pink and neautrals.

CMCC70When I created my card, I made a mistake and thought the challenge called for baby pink, so that’s what I used…close enough to Crisp Cantaloupe…right?

A few weeks ago, I saw Jennifer McGuire create a flat shaker card. I couldn’t wait to try the technique. Even though you all know I love a shaker, they tend to be pretty bulky. I created my card in a more low-tech way than Jennifer did, but I think I achieved a similar result. The card was a breeze to create and took maybe 10 real life minutes to complete. Make sure to watch my very quick video to see how I made it–



This card could very easily be reproduced for a boy, or to be more gender neutral. I love the softness that the vellum adds, and those little feet at just the perfect touch of whimsy.

The Colour Me design team have outdone themselves this week with their inspiration cards. Make sure to visit their blogs to see how everyone created their cards–


Thanks so much for dropping by this week! Until next time,
