Paper Crafts Magazine Presents: Color Inspiration for Card Makers Blog Hop

Hi there! I'm so excited to be participating in my very first blog hop and especially THIS blog hop that celebrates my favorite design element – color! So, I welcome you to my blog and to this fun hop with lots of inspiration and several chances to win prizes

Today we're talking about Color Inspiration for Card Makers – the latest special issue from Paper Crafts magazine. They took 70 different color combinations and published 280 cards in a variety of styles and themes. This issue gives you inspiration and examples on how to play with the element of color in whatever way best suits your crafting style – genius, right? 

ColorInspiration.2010_COVER

My favorite part of working on this issue was really stretching myself to try new design techniques. To stay true to the 3 or 4 colors in each combination, I used a lot of cardstock instead of patterned papers to create my designs. I also didn't have a lot of pre-made focal points that matched the specific colors, so I created them myself using cardstock and paper piecing techniques. I definitely had to leave my comfort zone with my designing process, but I love a challenge and I learned so much from working on this issue.

Here's a new card that I created just for this blog hop in the color combination you see on the cover.

SUPPLIES:  Cardstock: Doodlebug Designs, Wausau Papers, Bazzill Basics Paper  Patterned paper: Hambly Screen Prints, BasicGrey  Stamp: Papertrey Ink  Buttons: craft store  Rhinestones: Queen & Co  Chipboard butterfly: BasicGrey  Ink: Clearsnap

    There’s such a Middle Eastern feel to your card.
    This challenge is so much about how I create – I usually decide on my colours first and then figure out how to make them work together.
