Weekly Winners - Color Challenge #129

Thank you to everyone who participated in last week's challenge!  It seemed like our colors really did pose a challenge since there were fewer than usual entries.  Sorry about that! 

Because of the smaller number of submissions, the Design Team is recognizing only two cards as our Weekly Winners.  We felt these two came closest to using our challenge colors while staying clean and simple in style.  In order of entry into the challenge, we congratulate:



Well done, ladies! Please feel welcome to copy our winners' badge and display it on your blog:

Challenge #130 Sketch

Hi everyone! Today is the last of my challenges for June, and it's a nice simple sketch! The blank space above the ribbon element leaves a fab blank canvas for you to stamp on, emboss, etc. Just remember to keep it clean and simple.


Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card.

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

Challenge #129 Colours

Hello! Lizy here with another challenge for you, this week a colour challenge! I am really enjoying setting these challenges and I hope you are enjoying entering them!


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:

Challenge #127 - Colours

Welcome to a new month of challenges here at CAS - Colours & Sketches!  It's Lizy here for this month's challenges, and I hope you like them and feel inspired to join in! Here is my first one, a colour challenge:

 

I was anxious to use some of the new Stampin' Up In Colors!  :-)  but if you don't own them yet, no worries - several of us on the Design Team don't have them yet, either.  Just use whatever product you have in your crafting stash that is close.  For color suggestions, you can click on the links below to our Design Team members' cards to see what we've used.  In addition to these colours, you may use white, cream, kraft, or black cardstock for card layers and those colours of ink for sentiments and image outlines.

Here is what our Design Team has created:







Today the Design Team is excited to introduce our new Guest Designer program!  Each month, the names of all the Weekly Winners for the previous month will be put into a drawing.  One name will be selected and that person will be invited to be a Guest Design Team member for an upcoming month of challenges. 

Our first Guest Designer was chosen from our April 2015 challenge winners, and it is Jan Clothier!  Jan is a frequent participant in our challenges and we always love her creativity.  Here is what she's made with this week's colours:
