Spin the Colour Caddy Challenge

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Spin the Colour Caddy Challenge

Oh I adore doing this! Spinning my Ink Colour Caddy and blindly grabbing colours to work with. Most of the time it works out really well and can get that creativity flowing.

Sometimes not so much…

However, I do like to show you pretty much everything I make, even if it’s not quite the success I’d hoped for…

My original trio of colours was Always Artichoke, Rich Razzleberry and Delighful Dijon. Oh yes. that’s a triple whammy of colours I rarely work with. Well, I do use the Rich Razzleberry, but it’s not my first pick.

I’m not sure that creativity is what flowed afterwards, but I went for it and decided to create a more masculine birthday card. It’s definitely not feminine really is it!

So once I made it, I decided to swap all those dark colours for their pastel counterparts to see what that made. I think a much more pleasing card that’s not quite such an assault on the senses!!

Now I dare you, spin your colour caddy and grab 3 inks and play…

  2. Ooooooppsssssss! . . . should read: I do not know if I will dare!!

  3. I would love to play along in this one ……… except I have no caddy. :'(

  4. Me to no caddy would have to put on floor an blind finger pick,great man card xx

  5. Belinda Litsch says:

    I love the color combination of the cards and can be for any occasions.
    thank you dear Sam.

  6. Christine Reid says:

    My criteria for a good card is the answer to the question – would I buy it from a shop? Seriously – no!

  7. Jennifer Neumann says:

    I think the first one would be great for a teenager or a guy. Maybe add something from the tool set.

  8. Love the masculine card – a great man’s card and I need to make lots of them – seriously lots

  9. Lisa Sylvia says:

    Great card Sam. I think a lot of us have trouble making masculine cards.

  10. Julie Blake says:

    I love the bold colors of the first card, and actually find the second, pastel colors, a bit wishy washy for the patterns. But either way, I applaud your talents in being able to put a successful card together from colors you don’t usually use.

  11. Christine Bettany says:

    My first project when I get home Sam is to spin the colour caddy.
    Both these cards are stunning.
    Christine xx

  12. I actually, quite like that first card. I think the colors are working well together. I don’t have a caddy either and not so many colors of ink, but what a great idea to just use random colors together. Thanks for showing us what you came up with.
