Happy Friday!

(edited with last month’s winner)

First up we want to Congratulate Courtney! She is the winner for last month’s Colour Challenge.  Email ellen.sosnoski@coredinations.com with your address information. Prizes will not go out until September 12  due to us being out of the office at an event.

Here is the cute card she made.  Love all the great Cricut work and the glossy accents. A GREAT example of how Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock can be your go to cardstock for any project.

You can see her entry here on her blog.

Now it is time to live with September’s Colour Challenge!!!

It is all about colour for sure.

Again, our inspiration piece comes from our Pinterest Colour Lover’s Board. Every Month Design Team Member Lydia Jackson gets the incredibly difficult task of choosing one of the beautiful color schemes found in Pinterest.

This month it is all  about back to school!

What is better than rainbow crayons???

Our Core Essentials line is PERFECT for this challenge. LOADS AND LOADS of gorgeous colours…..

Design Team Member Debbie Standard Created this fun card using this colour inspiration using loads of embossing and sanding:

AND…Debbie created a layout, too.

The great thing about this inspiration piece is that you don’t have to use every single colour like Debbie did here.  She focused on the blue, red, yellow, orange and brown. Looks awesome, don’t you agree?  The Stacy Julian Line Core Impressions is great for this challenge as well. No one does Colour like Stacy!

Remember you must use Core’dinations Cardstock on your project and link back to THIS post by September 30th or link us up on our Facebook page.

We are!

You know we always love colour around here and last month we have a few posts about Colour Lovers. An awesome place where you can go and create your own personalized colour palettes.

WELL….did you know that Core’dinations has it’s own Pinterest boards, too?   Make sure you follow us here because we are using Pinterest as our focus for our monthly challenges.  It’s ALL about colour here at CORE!

Here is the monthly inpsirational piece pinned here by Lydia Jackson:

Can you say Summer?  Can you say Delicious?  YUM! Lydia has named it Peachy Keen. It just screams summer in every way.

And here is the colour palette Lydia created with Colour Lovers….

And here is Lydia’s take on the challenge:

Lydia sanded, embossed, scored and tore on this layout using Vintage and Core Essentials cardstocks.

What can you do with this colour palette? The rules for our monthly challenge are super simple. You must use this palette as your inspiration (feel free to use the Pinterest photo as well), Core must be recognizable on your project (can be a layout, card, anything paper crafting) and we want to see some technique. You know how we love to see how you work that Core ;)

Link up your projects to this post or our Facebook account by July 27th to win some Core’dinations Cardstock!
