My name is Natalie and I love anything to do with card/paper. I have been a papercrafter for many years now and I never get bored playing with all the wonderful products available. I've been married to my wonderful husband Nathan for 35years now and we are still very much in love with each other as the first day we met each other. We have 3 wonderful children and 5 gorgeous grandchildren so we have lots to be thankful for. Since joining Stampin' Up! in 2018 I've grown so much in confidence with myself and I even tackle technology, which for me is a huge step to have taken, but I'm getting there slowly.

Colour challenge birthday card

Hello everyone! I've made this very quick card for a colour challenge over on Chatterbox crafters which is a facebook group run by myself, Anne Ronsky and Ruth Blackett, it's for people to share all of their crafty makes with everyone, in a friendly environment....... pop over and join us via the link and share some of your makes, it's not a selling group just a sharing group!
So the challenge for last week was set by Ruth, and we had to use Polisehed pink, Granny apple green, Balmy blue and Bumblebee, and I was, I'm sorry to say very late in joining in, but this is the card I came up with...... hope you like it!

Materials needed:

Basic white thick cardstock
1pc - 21cm x 14.8cm scored on longside at 10.5cm for the cardbase
1pc - 7.8cm x 10cm for front of card speckled layer

Basic white cardstock
2pc - 10cm x 14.3cm for front and inside of card layers
1pc - 1.1cm x approx 7.5cm for the sentiment
Scrap piece for the stamping and die cutting of the flowers and leaves

Bumblebee cardstock
1pc - 8.1cm x 10.3cm for front of card layer

Bumblebee gingham ribbon - for front of card


1. Fold and burnish the cardbase and attach the inside of card layer.
2. Attach the ribbon to the front of card white layer and attach to the cardbase.
3. Stamp the speckled images onto the smaller white layer of cardstock using 2nd and 3rd generation of balmy blue ink. This image is from the Color and Contour stampset.
4. Stamp all of the flowers using Polished pink ink and the leaves in Granny apple green ink and then die cut them all out. The flowers are from the Color and Contour stampset and the leaves from the Artistically Inked stampset. Die cut all of these out.
5. Attach all of the flowers/leaves to the card layer that has speckles stamped on it, two flowers I have attached using glue just on the centre, the third flower is on a dimensional to give it more depth and then the leaves are just tucked under using glue.
6. Stamp the sentiment using Balmy Blue ink again and then angle the two ends and attach using dimensionals just in the centre part.
7. This whole layer can now be attached to the Bumblebee layer using dimensionals and then to the front of the carbase using glue.

Card finished, as I said very quick, simple but fun to make.

Hope you enjoyed this and give it a go yourself, I think this would look great in many different colours....... so go have some fun and enjoy creating while crafting!
