So, onto our next challenge

Wild Orchid Crafts with a £12 gift voucher




This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Colour Combo (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.


Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:



My favourites are pink and blue. I love pastel colours and pink and blue go beautifully together. Blue reminds me of summer skies, and pink is very feminine and also reminds me of summer.  I also like purple so could have included or substituted that colour too, but I usually prefer only 2 main colours on my design to avoid it getting too "busy", unless I'm feeling particularly rebellious!






My favorite colour combinations hmmmm this is a another hard challenge
because it depends on what I am making and for whom?

My favourite colour is blue and I love blue and grey together
so I 
have made 2 crochet monkeys for my great nephews.... and in this case it's my favourite combo for boy monkeys :)



Brenda


One of my most favourite colour combinations is pink, green and blue.  These colours make me smile!







Elaine

I have many colour combos I love, but I do like Kraft, white and blue together.  I think it is a lovely non-traditional colour scheme for Christmas which I use often. 





Kat

My absolute favourite colour is pink and I love pretty much any other colour with it, but I think teal/aqua would just sneak into first place because it's such a vibrant and cheerful combination.





Lori


One of my all-time favourite colour combos is black, teal and pink....I love the bright colours of teal and pink and the black adds that WOW factor!




Lorraine

I have a few colour combinations that I like to use on my cards and projects, red and grey being one of them. I love that it can be used for both male and female themes.




Mojca

Well I love green-brown combinations, because they are such subdued colours and with a little touch of white they can really stand out, don't you think?

 

Sarah

It's pink and green for me...any shades...they just "go". 




Squirrel

I thought I knew what my favourite colours were until I started this challenge, and then several combos were competing with each other, so in the end I checked my ink palette to see which colours I use the most!
So this favourite combo is pink, turquoise and purple.





Suzette

**coming soon**


Wilma
I do have a few colour combinations which I like, but my all-time favorite is green (lime) and aqua. The bright colours cheer me up.






So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Colour Combo (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Film or Song (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.


Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:



I like lots of film genres, but I do like science fiction 

and one of my favourite films is The Matrix 
(if you want to know why I like it, 
and why this card reminds me of that film, 
then head over to my blog where I've explained!) 
;0)





Samantha
Ohhh Hard hard hard..... fav film OH my to many to choose just one so I will go
with my fav song.... HAHAHHAAA just as hard sooooo... I will choice Nelly the elephant
Because I was singing it with our granddaughter this last weekend and also loved making a
crochet one too! which you can see on my blog :)  




Brenda

I grew up in Kansas so that kinda explains my love of the Wizard of Oz.  One of the songs from the movie is also one of my most favorites.  I love Somewhere Over the Rainbow by the Hawaiian artist, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole.




Elaine

 I do like romantic films or a good comedy. My inspiration for this card is the film 'You've Got Mail' with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.





Kat


Dr. Hubby and I are not the biggest romantics but we both really loved the song Flower by Eels when we got together so is basically 'our song' and that of course, makes it my favourite :-)






Lori


This card is inspired by a favorite song of mine from Adele "Hello." I love her strong voice, the lyrics and I sing it out loud any chance I get! :) 





Lorraine

My Favourite Film is The Addams Family, the 1991 version with Anjelica Huston as Morticia.
I love fantasy/fictional stories but not horror films so this fits the bill. All the quirky characters have an endearing quality, even Uncle Fester.





Mojca

I decided for one of the romantic movies that is really one of my favourite ones ... The Bridges of Madison County :) I loveeeeee Clint Eastwood and it's such atypical movie for his persona but he is brilliant in it ... so I made a wedding cards as it's a love story :) and yes, I always always cry at the end in case you wondered :P






Sarah


I could have picked many favourite films but one that I watch every Christmas, without fail, (and throughout the year too!!) is White Christmas, I love it. Why? I just do!!






Squirrel

If I were to choose ten films for a desert island, then every one of them would be Pixar!  It was so hard to choose an absolute favourite, but Toy Story will always have a special place in my heart.  Thankfully there's no snake in my boots.





Suzette




Wilma
I am a fan of "Queen" and every time I see that bike die it is the song "Bicycle race" that immediately pops into my head. And I really love to ride my bike.




So now it's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Film or Song (& why).

$10.00



This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Shape or Standard cardbase (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.


Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:



Although I use mostly 6" square card bases, the shape created by my Go Kreate nestie die is my absolute favourite and I don't use it anywhere near enough.  I love the curves, and the fact that despite being so ornate it still stands really well as a tent fold.






Well this is a very easy choice for me I love standard
and would pick 15x15 square card base every time,
why? simply because I love the size and give me plenty
of clean space. even on a card that I have used layers there is still lots of space.





Brenda


Don't get me wrong, I love all the wonderful shaped cards.  I especially love using the GoKreate dies to make all the lovely shapes.  It's just so much easier and more affordable to send a standard card, for me it's usually A2.







Elaine


I do like to make shaped card but more often I opt for 15x15 square cards. I love how you can keep them CAS or make them into something very fancy.




Kat


Although I probably make square cards more often just for speed, my favourite designs are always the shaped cards as I love the interest they add and I find them fun to design on.






Lori



This is an easy one for me - my "go-to" card base is usually the standard A2 (rectangular) base - I don't mind making square cards every now and again if I have a larger image, but I find it's just simple to cut an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock in 2, then you have 2 cards :) 

 


Lorraine


This was an easy choice - I'd choose a square card every time. I don't mind what size square either. I find that everything fits in the space beautifully.






Mojca

I love both actually, but I decided for a standard one this time. I made an envelope which is some kind of an album like gift for a client of mine. Hope he likes it. I really love to make this kind of cards because you can decorate them in so many ways.



Sarah


Standard square for me (generally!!) like Squirrel, I favour symmetry. 





Squirrel

My go-to shape is a square!  I think that secretly, somewhere deep down inside, there must be a tiny bit of neat-freak in me that simply finds the symmetry of a square soothing and pleasing - and of course it is so adaptable!






Wilma

My favorite shape at the moment is rectangle. Why? Because for some stamps it just feels right to use a rectangular card.





So now it's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Shape or standard cardbase (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
