Challenge 2: Inspired by Packaging!

Hi ya Peeps!

I hope you're ready for a new challenge?! Thanks so much to Lori for the last one, I had a blast spending ages deciding which button would feature on my card for that challenge!

So onto our new challenge....well I dunno about you but I tend to be inspired by just about everything around me. I recently found the packaging of my muesli a huge source of inspiration (as well as tasty) and the PTI colour combo just jumped out at me!

Therefore my challenge to you is to pick any one of the products by Dorset Cereals and think about using the colours featured on it on a creation of your own (it doesn't have to be restricted to cards!) Obviously some colours may struggle to match with a PTI colour so feel free to use other supplies or just pick a product that features all PTI colours. If you look closely at each package you'll see that they nearly all contain at least a bit of white text so feel free to use that if you want a neutral colour to balance things out a little!

Here's lots of different colour combos to take your pick from. If you want to check out bigger pictures then you can go to their website here and use the tabs just below their header to check out their different products!

For my example I picked some scrummy porridge that really jumped out to me:

It features New Leaf, Spring Moss, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate and White in terms of PTI colours. Here's my creation using that colour combo:

Now who says you can only use a holiday stamp set for that holiday? My DP here was created by stamping the tree from Holiday Tree. I thought it was kinda cool that it reflects the design on the packaging too!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Holiday Tree/Daily Designs/Daily Designs Sentiments
Ink: Dark Chocolate/Spring Moss/New Leaf
Card: Dark Chocolate/Pure Poppy/Spring Moss/Stamper's Select White/New Leaf
Accessories: New Leaf Twill Ribbon/Martha Stewart Border Punch/Circle Nestabilities/Cuttlebug

To enter just click on Mister Linky at the bottom of this post. The most important thing is to be inspired and to have fun so don't stress, there's no rules, so go get inky! I can't wait to see what you all create!


Note: I'm not affiliated with Dorset Cereals in any way what-so-ever! Just a happy customer!

Wow, Aimes! I've never eaten porridge in my life, but I might be tempted with such fabulous packaging. I'm off to pick my "box".

Aimes that is such a cool challenge, in fact you are correct, yesterday at church they had up a graphic on a monitor and I found myself wondering how I'd reproduce the look with stamps . . . shame on me! Wandering mind.

Such a 'cool' challenge! I love your card! And it is interesting how I look at things around me know and think how I could interpret it into a card project.

Linda said...

What a fabulous idea, Amy! With packaging like that, I'm tempted to eat breakfast. Hope to get to it soon. We have two more days with cutie patootie GD's. They require tons of attention. And I love every minute!
