Design Team Call and Challenge #245 - Colours

We are looking for some new members
to add to our Design Team!

We are dedicated to creating cards in the Clean and Simple style, alternating between color challenges and sketch challenges. Design Team responsibilities include designing cards for our challenges and sharing them on your own blog, commenting on challenge entries and voting for our Weekly Winners each week, and creating challenge ideas and acting as our host for at least one month during the year.

If you would like to be considered for a position on our team, you will need to participate in this week's color challenge and next week's sketch challenge so that we can see your work in both types of challenges. Please add the letters "DT" after your name when you link your cards for the two challenges, and make sure that your cards follow our Challenge Rules. Applicants will be contacted during the month of November, and our new members will start on the team in December.

Hey it's Emily here and this week I have a brand new colour challenge for you using some of my favourite colours! I love the contrast of the Night of Navy with the Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo. I can't wait to see what your create!


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.

Here is some inspiration from the design team to jump start your creativity:


Our challenge requirements are listed in the Challenge Rules tab. Please read them carefully before linking your card. Happy crafting!


Challenge End Time: 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time/11:00 p.m. London U.K. time Monday, October 23, 2017

October is a month known for "trick or treat" (at least in the United States), and we think you'll agree that our Guest Designer and her artwork are most definitely a "treat"!  She was picked from among our Weekly Winners from the month of August.  Please join us in welcoming Jeanne K., who blogs at Spectrum Ink!  Here's her make with this week's colours:

Challenge #242 - Sketch

Alas, this is the last of my challenges for the month. I've certainly had a lot of fun coming up with the ideas and seeing all the cards that have been posted. Next month it is Emily's turn to host and I know she has some great challenges for you all.

Seeing as it's the fourth Tuesday of the month, it's time for a sketch and this is what I came up with.


Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card.
