ColourQ #115

Hey everybody, School Holidays has started and we are planning holiday activities and getting organised. A lot of movies, drives, swimming, library and household sorting and cleaning on the chart. Oh, I did not forget crafting. And crafting always comes first, rest!
So I did make couple of cards using ColourQ challenge #115.

Love the bright colours in the challenge. But I did struggle a bit using them, to be honest!  Then I received my order from Simon Says store. When new goodies come, I get all thrilled and movtivated looking at them. So I opened the Sizzix/Hero Arts stamp and die set and made this card below.

 Love the stamp set and die from Hero Arts/Sizzix because I can stamp first and then diecut the stamped images. So easy and so much better than lining up the stamp on the tiny diecuts to stamp.Isn’t the butterfly image beautiful? Love it.

Next card, I made using my old Rose is a Rose stamp set from SU. I love this set because of its two step stamping. That means the rose can be made using so many diffeent colour combinations. I have a few dearly loved SU stamp sets and this set is one of them.

I created an entire pattern paper using these stamps and it looked gorgeous. The sentiment stamp set and impression plate used on the red panel is from papertrey Ink. So is the cardstocks except the Green Galore strip. The pearls are from Kaisercraft. 
Love both the cards for its vibrant colours. Hope you do too. If you like to play along then, here is the link to the challenge. I would like to thank the Colour Q team for choosing this card of mine as one of the courtiers. I am honoured.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Holidays.
See you soon!
