#TGIFC476 Colour Challenge

It's been a long time since I've been able to play with the TGIF Challenges, but this week I was able to squeeze out some time to play along.  It's a colour challenge this week, with colours (Azure Afternoon, Pumpkin Pie & Basic Grey) that I don't naturally gravitate to--so a fun challenge to take on!  I just received some new paper so I was excited to break into that pack of Take To The Sky DSP and get creative.

Creation Station In Colour Challenge

Here we are in June already, and another Creation Station Blog Hop.  The new annual catalogue is still hot off the press, and I'm having so much fun playing with all my new products!  This month's hop theme is a colour challenge--one in colour + one core colour--so the potential is endless.  I decided I need to use my favourite new in colour, Petunia Pop, and the beautiful Thoughtful Journey DSP as a jumping off point, adding some accents in classic Smoky Slate for my project.

Stampin' Friends Celebrating Men Blog Hop

Father's Day is almost upon us, so it's time for the Stampin' Friends to break out our ideas on masculine projects.  I'm all about the Country Birdhouse Suite right now as I design for my Summer Camp Retreat, so I challenged myself to create a father's day card using this suite for this month's hop.

Stamping Symphony New In Colour InstaHop

Happy May my friends!  Spring is in full swing and all of the blooms are finally popping, providing a great backdrop for creating with the new 2024-2026 In Colours.  These bright and cheerful colours are just what I need to help leave the gloom of winter behind!  Our Stamping Symphony team is highlighting the 5 new colours--Pretty In Pink, Petunia Pop, Summer Splash, Shy Shamrock, and Peach Pie--for our theme this month, so get ready for some fun!

My card also features a new core colour, Basic Beige, which has quickly become my go-to neutral choice.  It has such a subtle impact while blending seamlessly into the background.

Creation Station Up In The Air Hop

It's the first Sunday in May, and time for another Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is "Up In The Air", and I decided to use the bird in the brand new Country Birdhouse Stamp Set as inspiration for my card.

Stampin' Friends All About The Flowers Blog Hop

If the old adage "April showers bring May flowers" is true, our May is going to be incredible!  So while it may be another dreary day with no sign of Spring in sight, I'm going to create a little piece of it for myself in my craft room while sharing my project for the Stampin' Friends All About The Flowers Blog Hop today:

Stamping Symphony Last Chance Instahop

Well here we are halfway through April already, which also means it's time for another Stamping Symphony Team Instahop.  This month we are saying goodbye to our favourite retiring products, which you'll find on the "last chance" list in the online store.  One of my favourite die sets ever--the gorgeous Artistic Dies--are not only retiring this year, but they are on sale for 50% off!  I used them in this card as a celebration of how beautiful they are:
