Week 80: Purple

 

Winter getting the best of you?  How about adding some color to your week?!  Purple is a color that can carry many different moods depending on its shade and I'm guessing that people associate many different things with it!  It's going to be interesting to see just what those things are!

Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps is returning this week as our wonderful sponsor!  With Valentine's Day fast approaching, you'll want to take a look at what their wonderful images and dies in the store!  They carry both clear and red rubber stamps!  This week's challenge winner will win a variety of unmounted, red rubber stamp images!

Let's take a look at what this week's guest designer and the design team members created for inspiration!  Be sure to visit their blogs to get more insight into their interpretations of the cue word!


Guest Designer:  Toni
 design defined:
A bold color, graphic design, and contrasting font adds interest to the white space of a CAS card. 
design defined:
Make the most of your dies to add interest.


Jen
design defined:
Offsetting a single image keeps the design CAS but gives it interest.


design defined:
Using multiple shades of the same color keeps it interesting but still CAS.


Judy
design defined:
Colorful patterned papers in small doses can add interest to CAS cards.


 Kimberly
design defined: 
Single embossed cut pieces give a multi-layer look without bulk.

design defined: 
Don't be afraid of embellishing your CAS cards.  Choose products that will blend with rather than distract from your design.


May
design defined:
Inlaid die cuts with a pop of color add interest to your CAS design. 


Meghan
design defined:
 It's a good idea to include a grounding strip for your image on a clean and simple card.


 Melissa
 design defined:
Use an image in varying sizes on a one layer design for added interest.


Tracey
design defined: Clear embossing adds depth to your design without the the added bulk of a second layer.


Ardyth
design defined:  
Use colour in non-traditional ways, but don't forget the white space! 


Now go have fun and don't forget to link up your PURPLE creation by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CST)!
