Colour Create #38 – It’s our birthday

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Hi everyone, it’s all celebration on Colour Create this challenge as we’re now one year old! There are fantastic prizes from our very generous sponsors including sets of stamps from Whimsy Stamps and Michelle’s Scrapbooking (a discount on purchases too!). There are also guest designer spots as part of the prize and blog candy on some of my DT friends blogs, and even nicer is our friend Tara and founder of the challenge is joining us with her gorgeous DT card for this challenge, hope you’ll pop over and join the party.

As my part of the prize I’ll be offering two single digital images from my digi shop and the winner will be randomly chosen from the commenters on this post.


Our colours for this challenge are red, white/off white, chocolate and pink and were picked by our lovely Di. Thanks Di it’s a gorgeous combo. The option this time is to use hearts and silver.
Red White & Chocolate 11 Feb 2010
I’ve made a Valentine gift set. The little bird house gift box was made using a very sweet template from the MagnoliaINK magazine #1 and was very easy to put together. I stamped it with a Crafty Individuals music background stamp in walnut stain distress ink and also used some Crafty secrets stamps from the birds set. All the edges of the bird house and card are sponged with walnut stain and fired brick distress inks. There are some heart scalloped die cuts on the roof, a die cut frame on the circle entry, die cut and glittered hearts and buttons and all topped off with the big red ribbon bow. The card is made with the same stamps with the addition of the Tim Holtz love and frame stamps, flowers and punched leaves. For the silver element I’ve used silver stickles glue. The left side of the roof lifts up to put the gift inside, I’ve got red heart chocolates in mine. TFL and see you tomorrow with my DU2DS card.
