At Just Add Ink this week we have a beautiful colour challenge.
I’m not sure it would even be possible to make a bad card with these colours actually. Take a look at the rest of the design team’s work for some inspiration and then give them a try yourself.
Here is my card :
This card was kind of inspired by a thread I was reading on Splitcoaststampers this week. It was all about the new stampin up catalogue (which isn’t out for ages yet but it’s always fun to speculate). It asked which 3 stampin up sets we thought would retire, which 3 we hoped would stay around in the next catalogue, which 3 sets from mini catalogues we hoped would make it in and which 3 sets we hoped would retire (never to be seen again).
Well I was really shocked and amazed that this Awash With Flowers set was mentioned by quite a number of people as one they hoped would retire. While I admit I haven’t used it heaps (but I could say that about a lot of sets I own actually :o) I have liked each card I’ve made with it. I really like this flower in the set especially. Anyway the thread “made me” use it again to prove it’s a good set and not one we need to get rid of. And in the top 3 sets you would want to retire? Unbelievable!
I guess everyone has different taste. But I like it!
Stamps : Awash with Flowers, Thoughts and Prayers
Card : vanilla, crumb cake, choc chip, subtles dsp stack
Ink : choc chip, crumb cake
Other : big shot, designer frames, polka dot ef, crumb cake seam binding, pearls, corner rounder punch
Well if you’re interested, here is what I wrote in the Splitcoast thread:
3 I think will retire
Under the big top
Season of joy
Friends never fade
Wish they would retire
3 I hope stay
From minis I hope this stays
I’d be interested to know your picks for these categories. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you’re hoping retires and stays :)
Wishing you a very Happy Easter and I hope you find some time over the holiday to create something beautiful.
