Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop 13 - Colour Challenge

Hi Crafters,

The international crafters from Global Stamping Friends are back with another blog hop to inspire you.  I hope you enjoyed our special anniversary blog hop - if you missed it you can still view my post and hop along.  It's a lot of fun taking part in blog hops and we really appreciate all your support.

This month we are bringing you colour inspiration using the following palette:

I was struggling to choose which idea to try out with this group of colours - so many options!  Finally I settled for one of my favourite sets from the Annual Catalogue called Colorful Seasons.  It really does take you through all seasons.  

I was also inspired by the current challenge over at Global Design Project which features a sketch.  

I've been channeling my festive side and have created a wintry card using the branch and snowflake images.

My main panel is simply stamped in Smoky Slate, Pool Party and Night of Navy and then I drew a string with the Smoky Slate Stampin' Write Marker to attach the snowflakes to the branches.  I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centres of the snowflakes for some bling.  You can never have too much sparkle, especially at Christmas.  I stamped my greeting from the brand new Cheers to the Year stamp set from the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue in Smoky Slate and finished off with some Metallic Silver Thread.  

Keep hopping to Ellen's blog using the next arrow below.  I can't wait to see what everyone has created.  I know everyone's ideas will be so different.  

We would love you to leave a comment to let us know you've visited.  I hope you've been inspired by our colour challenge to get stamping.  You are certainly in for a treat with the new Autumn/Winter Stampin' Up! catalogue which launched today.  If you would like a catalogue sent out by post, simply drop me an email with your name and address and I'll send one out directly to you. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
