Crafty Challenge Blog Hop!

Monday 30 May 2022 United Kingdom

I am hopping along today with Stampin' demos and papercrafters for the Crafty Collaborations Crafty Challenge Blog Hop!

It's my birthday today! 

I've had just over a week off work and go back tomorrow for 2 days, then we have an extended weekend with 2 bank holidays for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The theme for today's crafty challenge is the new In Colours 2022 - 2024!

I am sharing an eco project which uses up the left die cuts from my first project sharing the new in colours (click here for a quick look).

When I saw the left over circle die cuts in a pile on my craft desk I thought they'd look great on a card.

The circles have been cut from the 2022–2024 In Colour Designer Series Paper. 

I'm not the best at random placement but I quite like what I've done. They were just too good to throw away and it was way to obvious to do a format like the Olympic rings so this is what I created instead!

In case you haven't seen them, the new Stampin' Up! In Colours are Starry Sky, Orchid Oasis, Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet.

Which is your favourite? 

My favourite is Starry Sky. I've used this colour to stamp the sentiment 'Just a note' which is from the Flowing Flowers stamp set. I stamped it onto a left over die cut from the Stitched Rectangle dies. 

I'd encourage you to look at your paper scraps and die cuts to see what you can make! 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog - I hope you enjoyed my project today!
