It’s Sunday, so that means it’s time for another challenge at Sunday Stamps. This week we are challenging you to come up with something fabulous, using any brand of products you like, in the colours blue, orange and yellow.

My card:

These colours are definitely very summery, but I also thought they would look great used on a baby card. Isn’t that ducky cute! It comes from one of my favourite stamp sets Embellished Events.

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with, using our bright and cheery, colour combo. Our challenges are now open for two weeks (this one until Friday, July 12th at 6pm), so there’s lots of time to play. And please remember to provide a link back to Sunday Stamps in your post.

See you in the gallery!

A New Gig

It has certainly been an exciting week here in my little corner of cyberspace. The creative and writing juices were flowing, I felt a lot of bloggy love from all the wonderful comments left on my many posts and one of my cards even got an honourable mention (thanks ladies at Dynamic Duos!).

But the biggest thing to happen, was that Holly, the creator of Sunday Stamps, put out a call for a new Design Team member, I applied and she accepted!! How exciting is that!! First, I never dreamed I would get so hooked on paper crafting that I would want to post a new card everyday. But if you would have told me I would someday be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and then a Design Team member on a weekly blog challenge, I would have said you were dreaming.

But here I am and I am delighted to share this week’s colour challenge with you, created by our hostess Kathya.

My card:

Aren’t those colours so bright and cheery. I absolutely love Melon Mambo. In fact when I sat down to design my card, I realized I was almost completely out of my card stock in that colour!

I decided to pair the colour combo with this week’s sketch at Seize the Birthday. I used a piece of the Gingham Garden DSP as a backdrop for two of the flowers from the Secret Garden stamp set. I actually embossed a little white on the flowers, to make them stand out, before cutting them out with the matching framelits – I love framelits!!

Be sure to hop on over to Sunday Stamps and take a look at what the other Design Team members have come up with! We sure hope you will join us this week!

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Sycamore Sunday Stamps

My second card of the day, is based on the sketch designed by Joan for for this week’s challenge at Sunday Stamps.

The challenge:

 My card:

Wow, I am not going to lie but this sketch was a real ‘challenge’ for me. But that’s what it’s all about isn’t it, challenging ourselves to think outside our comfort zones!

It wasn’t until I pulled out the Sycamore Street DSP, that I figured out exactly what I wanted to do. Summer Starfruit is certainly a tough colour to work with, but I love the pattern in this particular sheet of DSP and had been looking for the perfect opportunity to use it.

I am really happy I attempted this challenge and I am thrilled with the way my card turned out.

Thanks for taking a look!

Card Stock/DSP: Summer Starfruit, Whisper White, Sycamore Street DSP

Ink: Summer Starfruit, Early Espresso
