CAS-Colour an Sketches #6

Happy Friday Eve. Yes that is right, we are very nearly hitting the first weekend of 2013!
And do you have big plans?? Whatever you are doing? I am hoping you get some time to craft and play along in CAS-Colour and Sketches first challenge of this bright New Year! It was great to see all the entries last week. I loved checking them out and found it hard to choose my top 3.

This week we have a colour challenge for you and we are using the Stampin' Up colours-Crumb Cake, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green. You don't have to get your colours exact, just as close as you can.

I struggled with this as I didn't seem to have the right ink colours but then hunted through my stash and came across some old pads of stampin' up paper. Now had a wealth of choices as all the paper seemed to have these colours! I chose my 3 favourite patterns and did some paper piecing and came up with this:


These stamps are from Little Claire Designs. Paper piecing is a little out of my 'comfort zone'. But this turned out to be fun and easier than I expected. This is to be added to my stash of 'guy' cards-and we know we need a collection of them!
Our DT team have come up with some fantastic inspiration cards for you so have a look here and then get creating. I am looking forward to seeing all your cards. Have fun x
