Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start and, if you are suffering in the cold like we are, you are managing to stay warm!!  I am certainly glad I had an excuse to stay inside, stay warm and create my card for this week’s challenge at Colour Me…!

Last week’s first challenge, was a such a resounding success (kudos to Hayley and Tara!!), that I am super excited to see what you all come up with for our second challenge!  This week we are playing with some striking colours – Melon Mambo and Marina Mist.

Our challenge:


My card:


I made this card for a sweet little girl, who is celebrating her 2nd birthday this week. After I completed the card, I realized I should have left one of the candles off the cake. Oh, well, I guess that’s an extra wish! I couldn’t resist the pennant banner and the added bling, because really, what girl doesn’t like a little bling!

My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, so be sure to stop by Colour Me….!  and check them out.  We can’t wait to see what you create!!! RosemaryHayleySam, TaraKatieLesley (Guest Designer).

The challenge will end on January 13th, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules, to keep things fair – you can check them out here.

A Washi Christmas

Not only are we being challenged to use Washi Tape at the Friday Mashup this week, but we can also create a set of 3×3 note cards or Mash-It Up and do both!

The Challenge:

My cards:


Can you find the washi tape?  I decided to Mash things up and I created a set of 3×3 note cards, and the main focal point of each card, is created with washi tape and some framelits (which I am sad to say are retired, but I still love using them!).

To create the little trees and candy cane, I adhered some washi tape to a piece of card stock and then cut them out using the framelits. I then popped them up on the cards with some dimensionals.

My faithful readers will recognize those little trees from one of my posts last week. They are so easy and fun to make, that I just had to do it again.

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock/DSP: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Champagne Glimmer Paper, Season of Style DSP

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive

Stamp Set: Embellished Events

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Holiday Framelits (retired), Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Stripes Embossing Folder, Candy Dots, Stampin’ Dimesionals
