Creative Moments Colour Challenge


Deedee is sponsoring the latest challenge at Creative Moments and this time they have a colour challenge. I am not a great fan of colour challenges but decided to have a go at this one anyway.

SAM_1655(watermarked)Materials used:
Deedee’s Digi Stamp Set – Baby Blessings Girl
Copic pens
white stamping card
purple card (two shades)
pink card
A5 white card blank
safety pin
snippet of pink check ribbon
border die

I printed out the images and sentiment that I wanted and coloured them with the Copic pens. I cut out parts of two images to decoupage onto my main image giving a 3d effect. I trimmed my main image and the sentiment and then matted and layered them onto the purple and pink card. I used the border die to cut a ribbon of purple card and stuck the ribbon down the middle of it. I cut out the top of two pins and glued them each side of a real safety pin before sticking it through the topper. I then arranged all the elements onto my card blank and stuck them down.

I don’t actually have anyone in mind for this card but with the royal baby due any day now it seemed the obvious one to make with the colours in the challenge! As I used the snippet of ribbon and some card snippets for the mating and layering I think I will pop along to Pixie’s Snippets Playground a little later and see what is going on there!

Thank you for visiting. Take care.


I would like to enter my card into:

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    I think the new royal is going to be a girl this time round. hugs Mrs A.
