Challenge #206 - Colours

Thank you all for joining us in our new schedule. My first set of colors harkened to winter. This set is to help provide some color to what are fairly drab days in my area. I hope you enjoy these rich colors:


We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines.  However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Just a reminder - our challenges are for clean and simple styled cards.  We define "clean and simple" as "uncluttered, with white or open space, and minimal layers and embellishments". 

Here is some inspiration from the design team to get your creative juices flowing:

Challenge #205 - Sketch

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm bringing you a sketch. I'm looking for a design that starts at the top (or bottom) and bleeds below the strip. I can't wait to see what you create!

Challenge #204 - Colours

Happy New Year! We know some of you may be wondering what we're doing here on a Tuesday - well CC&S will now be posting challenges on Tuesdays! We hope everyone will still join us!

Karen here; I'll be hosting the January challenges. We're starting with a color challenge. When I was putting this scheme together, I wanted something soft, cool, and happy - reminds me of winter.

The CC&S Design Team is looking forward to continuing our Guest Designer program this year!  Each month, the names of all the Weekly Winners from the previous month are put into a drawing.  One name is selected and that person is invited to be a Guest Design Team member for an upcoming month of challenges.  We're pleased to announce that our Guest Designer for the month of January, selected from our October 2016 Weekly Winners, is Lindsey!  Her delightful cards have been gracing our thumbnail galleries and we think you'll enjoy seeing them, too.  Here is her take on the colours for this week:
