Summer Salad

Summer seems to be the time for salads, especially salads with fruit and berries in them. And berries have rich colours like red and purple, while salad greens have the whole gamut of tones from lime to hunter green and beyond! What an amazing mix Amanda has come up with from her inspiration photo! What will you do with this combination? We can hardly wait to see!

Let's find out how the Design Team used the palette we were given:

Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • Stampin Up colours are used for reference but any matching colours are welcome. You can use black/neutral for outlines and sentiments but don’t use any other colours.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI148 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines tab.

Winners for Challenge #155

Mojo can be an elusive thing, but it was fascinating to see all the different ways you go about getting the creative juices flowing again - obviously, all very successfully! So hard to choose from among many masterpieces, but our choices for the winners were:

Our Top Pick is: Jen Mitchell

Jen's signature clean and simple design was so eye-catching that we kept coming back to it. The sophisticated turquoise and gray chevron design with the "awesome" die cut sentiment on the clean white background make such a perfect statement! We liked Jen's method of pumping up her mojo by casing herself!!

And our Featured Artist is: Joanne James


The Design Team loved the gorgeous watery background effect that Joanne created with this stamp set along with the colours she used for the more focused blooms that grace the foreground of this lovely card. As well, she had a great solution for getting your mojo back - casing the catalogue! 

Congratulations to our two winners and thanks to everyone who played along! I hope you'll come back and check out our new colour challenge tomorrow! Our winners can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
