Sketch Challenge #175

Hello!

It's Caro, with the second sketch challenge and my final challenge for this month.  I've so enjoyed hosting these challenges and we have all loved seeing what you have created. Don't forget to check back on Monday to see our winners, especially if you entered last week. For this week's sketch I'd like to see five elements of differing sizes and the diagonal.  Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch as usual. We are looking forward to seeing what you create.


Here is some inspiration from the design team to get your creative juices flowing:

Colour Challenge #174

Hello!

It's Caro, back with the second colour challenge for the month.  Some of you probably predicted two of the colours that would be here, after my first challenge featured three of the five retiring in-colours.  And you were right!  But what would the third colour be?  I decided it had to be a metallic, to see these out in style and have chosen silver, as I think it pairs beautifully with these, my favourites of the five.  We are looking forward to seeing what you create.


We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use white, ivory, kraft, or black for your card base and layers, for image outlines, or for sentiments. 
However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours

Here is some inspiration from the design team to get your creative juices flowing:

Hello!

It's Caro, back with your first sketch challenge for the month. It was great to see all your entries for last week's colour challenge - we will be posting the winners on Monday so please come and have a look, especially if you entered.

Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, I just want to see that your card has been inspired by it.

Colour Challenge #172

Hello!

It's Caro, your hostess for the month.  I'm new on the Design Team and very thrilled to be here.  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, we are close to the new catalogue being launched and with that, we see some great colours retiring.  So my first colour challenge is a farewell to to the retiring in colours - we are looking forward to seeing your designs.


We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use white, ivory, kraft, or black for your card base and layers, for image outlines, or for sentiments.
