Designer Challenge ~ Miss Cassandra

Hello everyone!  This is Cassandra and guess what??  It's my turn to host the "Designer Challenge". And of course, you know that I just HAD to make this a COLOR CHALLENGE!! The Colors of the Rainbow to be exact!  All you have to do is make a project of your choice using 3 of the following 6 colors: RedOrangeYellowGreenBluePurple.  For a more difficult challenge - if you dare...use ALL 6 colors!!!  

Here is my card to get your creative inspiration going:

The black and the white cardstock are from Recollections.  If you look really closely, you can see that I added some blue chalk lightly behind the clouds to make the white cardstock look like a whispy blue sky. All of the patterned papers for the hearts are actually from my scraps.  Yay me!  

The "smile..." sentiment is from the MCT ~ Turn That Frown Upside Down stamp set. The "Behind every cloud is a silver lining..." sentiment is from the MCT ~ More Of My Favorite Sayings stamp set.  The hearts are cut with the large heart die in the MCT ~ Stitched Heart Layering Dies set.  And the clouds are cut with the dies in the MCT ~ Fly Away With Me Dies set.  I cut out two sets of clouds. And on the bottom layer of clouds, I used some Silver ~ Stickles for sparkle.  I adhered the clouds and all the hearts with various sizes of pop dots for dimension.  And all of the pretty twine is from The Twinery.

Now doesn't that make you smile???  I just love the Colors of the Rainbow!  I hope I have inspired you to get your color on!!!  I can't wait to see what you all make..this is going to be so much fun! Now let's take a look at what the rest of the Design Team has created.  Happy Crafting everyone!!!

Now onto our FABULOUS design team!

Miss Emma (that's me) ;)

Okay, as you can see, I made a SUPER SIMPLE card, but I just LOVE how it came out!;)  All I did was used the arrow stamp from my "Just Simply Live" stamp set & stamped it onto my white cardstock using the rainbow colors! (SIDE NOTE: in my video I said that yellow was NOT included, but I was WRONG! You CAN use yellow in your projects too!) Then I stamped that awesome sentiment from my "More of my Favorite Sayings" and I just added the brackets & I just drew the dots in below the sentiment to add a little more to it! ;) 

Okay, now here is a prime example of a supposedly "mistake"! As you can see, I stamped the arrow & it was OFF!;) So instead of wasting GOOD papertrey ink cardstock, I just made this the back of my card & added the sentiment that is also in "More of my favorite sayings"! Remember "no mistakes in papercrafting!"
I thought this card would be PERFECT to give to my hubby who is having surgery tomorrow & I know he is a little nervous and who wouldn't be....right? Hopefully this card will put a smile on his face!

  37. Gorgeous cards! And I love what you did with the off-stamped arrow. Thanks for sharing that tip!

  38. A rainbow of distress inking! I used Georgia-Pacific Cardstock white and embossed it with Perfectly Paisley Cuttlebug folder. I used Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters, Scattered Straw, Festive Berries, Dusty Concord, Spiced Marmalade and Broken China. I put my embossed and colored card onto Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores cardstock and onto a white card base. I added the sentiment from Happy Hunting onto a Spellbinders Fancy Tag Two with Diamond Stickles on it. I then added a purple button made with Stitched Button Dies, tied with a bow made from Timeless Twine Firecracker.
    This was a fun challenge!

  39. Awesome challenge! Love anything rainbow!! Great projects from the DT!!
