Design Team Call and Challenge #442 - Colours

We are looking for some new members
to add to our Design Team!

Our challenge blog is dedicated to creating greeting cards in the Clean and Simple style of crafting, alternating between color challenges and sketch challenges. Design Team responsibilities include making cards for our challenges and sharing them on your own blog, commenting on challenge entries and voting for our Weekly Winners every week, and acting as our host and creating challenge ideas for a minimum of one month during the year.

If you would like to be considered for a position on our team, you must participate in this week's color challenge and next week's sketch challenge so that we can see your work in both types of challenges. Please add the letters "DT" after your name when you link your cards for the two challenges, and make sure that your cards follow our Challenge Rules. Applicants will be contacted during the month of November.  Our new members will join us as our Guest Designers for our 450th challenge in December and start on the team full-time in January 2022.

 

Hello again crafting friends! It's Vicky here, reporting for duty as your host for October. It's colour time this week and I've come up with a versatile set of colours that could be used for autumnal or festive cards - or anything else come to that!

For our color challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colors. You may also use neutral colors; however, the challenge colors should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colors as closely as possible. 

Our design team has created the following cards to inspire you:

Challenge #441 - Sketch

Hello friends and welcome to another fun challenge! It's Vicky here, hosting for the month of October. This week I'm hoping to inspire you with one of my favourite types of sketch:

SO many ways to use this - designer paper, smaller stamps, a large background stamp at an angle... I can't wait to see how you interpret it! Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card :)
