Orange florals

Good morning, it's time for our mid month inspiration where the Design Team have been sharing work using the colour they least enjoy working with and this month it's Eret's turn.

Our current theme of  'Anything goes with a stamp and a die' is in full swing and if you have not joined in yet there is still plenty of time so you are in with a chance of winning the fabulous prize from this months sponsor Tonic Studios.

 Now I will had you over to Eret............................ 

"It's my turn for the mid month post where all the DT have to make something in a colour that they don't like. I can't say that orange is my least favourite colour but somehow, it's difficult to make an orange card. It is actually a very pretty colour, but on my cards, it doesn't feel right. On this particular card, I love the orange flowers but I would change the background paper to something else. It has too much orange on it. I just have to keep trying until I feel comfortable with this colour". 

Thank you so much Eret and looking at your lovely card one would never guess you struggle using Orange.

January challenge - Anything goes with a die/s

Happy New Year and a warm welcome to our first challenge of 2016.

Our theme this month is......................

********Anything goes with a die********

A nice wide open theme this month and I think most us have a die or two or three. Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp......but can I please remind you.........we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artworkIt so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for the prize because they have not read the rules. 

We are pleased to welcome Tonic Studios back as this months sponsor and what a fabulous prize they are offering to one very lucky winner.........................

Tonic Studios are synonymous with quality and precision cutting products from scissors to punches, guillotines to dies. During the last year they have extended their range of products to high quality clear stamps  and very recently released their own design papers.

Now for some inspiration and first up is this months Guest Designer this month is Valerie

And here is what the Design Team have come up with.....................................

Happy Crafting all and good luck in this months challenge.
