A New Challenge!

I love it when I find a new challenge, especially when it is one that really opens up the possibilities and gets the creative juices flowing.  Well done to Lesley and Jackie for coming up with this idea, and thanks for all the inspiration.

And here is my first Fusion card.

I have added my own challenge to this as well, I really want to get good at making Clean and Simple cards.  I do find it difficult leaving lots of white space and not using heaps of embellishments, ribbons, lace etc but it will be good for me to learn something new!
It just so happens that this week’s CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to use Chevron and Flowers, so I will enter my card in that challenge as well.


The colours are just gorgeous, aren’t they?  Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo.  The yellow Chevron paper is from the Parker’s Patterns DSP, and the greeting from the gorgeous Kindness Matters stamp set.  The flowers look like they have dark blobs in the middle of them, but actually it is just a dob of silver Dazzling Details – the shiny stuff just didn’t show up in the photo.  Have to have a little bit of bling!
Hope your day is bright and sunny!
Happy stamping!

Dynamic Duos #27

 

Well, here it is, my first challenge with the wonderful Design Team at Dynamic Duos.
Each week we will have two colours to use to create a card, scrapbook page, craft or digital project.  Only the two colours, otherwise known as “The Dynamic Duo”, may be used for the project.  Neutrals such as black, white, vanilla, skin colours and kraft are ok to add to those two colours.

So here is the card I have made using this week’s colour combo.  For most people, the colours probably say “make a Christmas Card!”  but I thought it would be good to see those colours used in a different way.

 

 

I have used the Delicate Doilies Sizzlit, and Papillon Potpourri stamp set, and for the greeting an individual stamp called Beautiful Birthday.
Make sure you check out the rest of the fabulous creations from the Dynamic Duos Design Team:

Happy stamping!
