Challenge # 58 - Diecuts and Punches...

Hi Pinkies

Hope you're all having a good time getting ready for the festivities next month..  everyone seems to be in advance of themselves this year somehow, with all the TV ads you'd think Christmas was next week instead of next month! LOL!

But here at the Pink Palace, we're only going to put up our decorations in December..  when we're going to have a massive Pink Christmas tree, and lots and lots of pink glitter and tinsel!  

Now onto today's challenge....  this time we'd like to see what you can make using 

DIECUTS AND PUNCHES
(using lots of pink of course...)

So that's got to be easy for you, hasn't it??  Hope so!  Don't forget to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR - our number one rule!

Here's what the Design Team have come up with to inspire you... 





(details of these cards can by found by clicking on the name above each)

Now, a little sad news....  due to difficult circumstances, our lovely Gayle has had to step down and hang up her pink satin jacket - at least for a while.  We all send our love to Gayle and her family - and hope things improve soon - and the Pink Palace door will always be open for you!  Thank you for all that you've done as one of the lovely PINK ladies!

Now... onto our lovely Guest Designer - Viv from Daizy-Mae Designs..  Here is her gorgeous Diecuts and Punches creation..



Definitely a WOW card in our eyes!!  Don't you just LOVE all that pink showing???  A big thank you to Viv for joining us for a short while... and giving us a fabulously different perspective and a wonderful style to inspire!

Sooo... let's see what you can do for our Diecuts and Punches challenge...  but again, don't forget, use MORE PINK than any other colour (with the exception always of white!)  HAVE FUN.. we did!

KEEP IT SWEET AND SIMPLE 
(KISS for short!)

We'd love to see you create something, as it says, sweet and simple... we'll leave it to your imagination what that means... everyone interprets differently.  We've come up with some examples of what we each think..  now let's see what you can do!  

Don't forget of course, THAT WE NEED TO SEE MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR on your creation.






(details of these cards can by found by clicking on the name above each)

And now we have another new Guest Designer - who specialises in this type of card... meet the lovely Viv from Daizy-Mae Designs..  Here is her gorgeous KISS creation..


Isn't this just stunning in it's simplicity??

I know you'll all give Viv a wonderful PINK welcome.. Here's a little bit about her...

Hi everyone, my name is Vivien Hodge and I live in Norfolk, UK.  I have been making cards and also wire jewellery for over 10 years now. Happy married, we have three children and three grandchildren too. My husband is also into crafts and makes lovely things out of wood, turning mostly but some carving also.
 
I like to make quite simple cards mostly, using digital images, rubber stamps, die-cuts etc.  I love my Happy Cuts machine, my Cuttlebug, Copic Markers, Promarkers & Flex Markers too. I love using distress inks and the lovely effects they can achieve.
  
I look forward to joining ‘In The Pink’ as a Guest Designer, such a great inspirational site. Rizzo knows I am well known for my love of pink too lol. What an honour to be chosen, thank you so much.

Sooo... let's see what you can do for our KISS challenge...  but again, don't forget, MORE PINK than any other colour (with the exception always of white!)  HAVE FUN.. we did!

SPOTS AND/OR STRIPES
(pink of course)

Here's what The Pink Ladies have come up with for you today:





(more details on the cards above are available by clicking on the name above each)

And now, we'd like to introduce you to our fabulous new Guest Designer for the next two challenges...  it's the lovely Pamellia from My Little Craft Things - and here is her wonderful creation:


Isn't this just a WOW?????

Here's a little bit about Pamellia who we know you'll give a lovely Pink welcome to:

Hello Everyone! My name is Pamellia Johnson and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with my wonderful husband and our two little girls, Scully (a teacup Maltese) and Pebbles (a teacup black Pomeranian).

Thanks to my very creative and talented Mom, I have been crafting in some form or another since I was a little kid. I've dabbled in a variety of crafts, but my true passion is card making. I enjoy many different styles, but my favourite is shabby chic, oh how I love all the soft muted colours, big shabby bows and frilly laces.

Whenever possible, I try and make every aspect of my projects by hand. I prefer to make my own backgrounds and flowers, I dye my own ribbons, I even make some of my embellishments out of clay. I find such a sense of accomplishment in knowing that I made it myself.

Thank you so much to Christine and the In The Pink team for inviting me to spend the day with them. I am thrilled and honoured to be here with such a talented group of artists!

Pamellia has been one of our regular entrants and will also be with us for our next challenge.

We hope you'll  have fun with this challenge and ENJOY making something pink for us (that's what it's all about)...  We're looking forward to lots of fabulous entries!

You can also pop over to our FACEBOOK PAGE to share your pink creation there too so your fellow pinkies can see it properly and have a chat... we'd love to see you!


So come on ladies....  Lets get our dots and stripes out...

Happy Pink Crafting..
