Inspire.Create.Challenges! Design Team !!!! So Excited!

I am soooo excited and thrilled to be part of the Design Team For the Inspire.Create.Challenges!  When the call went out to apply I thought I would try but I never thought I would be chosen. I am so thrilled! The other designers have such talent, I'm feeling very honoured. 

Our very first challenge #001 is a Colour Challenge. We have been given Basic Grey, Calypso Coral and Whisper White to work with. Now, I love colour so to work with two colours and white may be a bit of a challenge. However, one of the first stamp sets/dies bundle I purchased form the new Annual Stampin Up Catalogue was  Colourful Seasons stamps and Layering Seasons dies. As Autumn is creeping in that beautiful leaf was calling to me. I thought it would be perfect to team up with these colours.

I used Basic Grey cardstock as my base with  layers of Calypso Coral and Whisper White. I have stamped both the large and small leaves several times in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White card. I have also stamped the leaves onto vellum. Sometimes I have inked the stamp in Calypso Coral and stamped off and then re inked in Whisper White onto the vellum to give a pale Coral colour on the vellum too. I have added a couple with the leaf veins stamped too. There are  a couple of leaves stamped in Basic Grey to give contrast. I have cut them out using the leaf die and layered them up under my sentiment using adhesive and dimensional foam pads. I added some of the beautiful Calypso Coral ribbon too.

I have added clear Wink Of Stella to my sentiment and a couple of rhinestones for a little sparkle.

I really hope you like my project. It is so much fun taking part in a Design Challenge.  Maybe I have inspired you to play along!?  To be part of something like this right from the very start is wonderful! It will be great to see what everyone who plays along comes up with!
