Simply Stampin' Challenge #62 - Colour

Hi Stampers!

So how did you all find the Sketch last week... it was a little tough wasn't it!
But even so we had some great variations of the Sketch and our Top 3 are: 

Well done ladies, thanks for your entries!
Please take the Top 3 banner from the sidebar to display on your blog with pride. 

The lovely Emma from Devotion to the Dream. Pop on over to her blog as
she has some wonderfully creative and fun craft projects that you can see... lots of inspiration!

We asked her a few questions as well to see what it is about crafting that makes
her tick and this is what she said...

1) Why did you join SU!/what do you love about SU!?
When I first saw Stampin' Up's product line they stopped me in my tracks!  they were exactly what I was looking for when I didn't know what I was looking for. I love the fresh and modern style that was so different from anything else I had seen in the UK before.  After buying practically everything I could lay my hands on as a customer for two years and waiting (not very patiently!) for a demo to come to my area (Swansea) I took the plunge to become the local Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

2) How long have you been crafting for? 
Caught the bug about six years ago.

3) What are your 3 'desert island' SU! must have items
(the things you just can't craft without)?
Grid paper, Crumb Cake cardstock (I am addicted as many of my blog followers
will testify lol!) and twine (all sorts).

4) What is your favourite SU! colour?
Crumb Cake!

5) What is your most reached for Stamp Set?
At the moment it is the brand new set 'Tea Shoppe' from the Summer Mini.

6) What are 3 of your favourite SU! projects?

7) What inspires your crafting creativity?
Anything from adverts (I once was inspired by an insurance advert that were
using peach parfait, whisper white and soft stone as a backdrop) to songs
of course, and I am always inspired by my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators
and other crafty friends I have been lucky enough to meet over the years.

8) What's your favourite crafting technique?
I absolutely love stitching or faux stitching on projects.

We hope you have enjoyed finding out a little more about Emma and her
wonderful creativity don't forget pop on over to her blog here to see
more of her stunning work!

  1. Interesting colour combination this week

  2. Love the color combo... some of my "red/orange" colors are in her hair and sand bar! Lots of fun!!xxx Ann Marie

  3. Thanks again for the great inspiration.

  4. Fantastic work ladies and great inspiration. I must admit that I had trouble with this colour combo, had a few goes before I was happy with my finished card. What a Challenge.

  5. Great inspiration as I wasn't too sure how the colors would look together. But, I think it turned out okay.
