Inkspirations Colour Challenge # 17

2010 is going to be the year of challenges! My personal goal, is to complete all of the challenges set by my gorgeous upline and friend Makeesha Byl and the brand new challenge site Just Add Ink. Up until yesterday, I’d never entered a challenge before, and look at me! 2 in as many days!!

I must admit however, I’m not very happy with this card – I didn’t sit down to make it until about 8.35pm, and Keesh’s deadline is midnight tonight – only I don’t know who’s midnight lol! You see, living in a country that has about 5 different timezones can certainly be a little confusing, especially when Keesh has just moved to the other side of the country! 😀

Here’s Keesh’s Colour Challenge for the week:

And here’s my not-so-great submission:

SUPPLIES (all by Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps : Polka Dot Background, Fifth Avenue Floral, Wow Flowers
Paper : Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral
Ink : Chocolate Chip, So Saffron
Ribbon : So Saffron
Other : Word Window Punch, Spiral Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Silver Brad, Blender Pen

I think I’m going to go and revisit this challenge at some stage through the week, just for my own satisfaction!

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Add Ink – Colour Challenge # 1

So a brand new challenge site has just been launched by Amanda Reddicliffe and Danielle Daws, 2 fabulously talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. Just Add Ink is a challenge blog with a difference however, as apart from the weekly challenge, they also plan on providing Tutorials, Ideas and (my personal fave) a place that readers can post pics of their own craft rooms!

The first challenge the girls have set is the following colour challenge:

And I thought I’d play along with this little card:

SUPPLIES (all by Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps :      Butterfly Prints, Wow Flowers, Polka Dot Background
Paper :         Whisper White, Chocolate Chip Textured, So Saffron, Taken With Teal
Ink :              So Saffron, Rose Red, Stazon White
Other :         White Signo Gel Pen, Cutter Kit, Word Window Punch, Butterfly Punch

Make sure you swing by Just Add Ink to have a look at the other awesome entries in the challenge!

Things that make you go hmmmm

This is another card I’ve had hanging around for ages to post. I’m really not to sure about it, but I thought I’d post it anyway. It was one of those cards that kinda evolved as I was going, I really didn’t have a plan in my head as to what I was doing, and I think that’s pretty obvious when you look at it!  lol

SUPPLIES (all by Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps :        Circle Circus, Sincere Salutations
Paper :          Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Summer Sun, Pacific Point,

        Good Morning Sunshine DSP
Ink :              Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip
Ribbon :        Pacific Point
Other :          Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Square Punch,

        1 1/4 Circle Punch, Scallop Border Punch, 5/16 Brads (retired)

See what I mean? 🙂

I’ve just noticed a huge jump in my blog traffic – if you’ve come via the Stampin’ Up Late Night Stampers Yahoo Group – thanks heaps for taking the time to have a little look at my blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
