New Design Team at SWAT – Blog Hop with Prizes!!

Welcome to the first S.W.A.T Design Team Blog Hop

Today S.W.A.T is welcoming our new Design Team with a Blog Hop & Challenge!

It’s hard to believe that my first 6 month term is over. It seems like just yesterday we started on this adventure!
I am really enjoying being a part of this team. I was honoured to be asked to join at the inauguration of this challenge blog and am pleased to be here for another 6 months … at least!! I’ve warned Lanette that she may never be able to get rid of me!! The “girls” are such fun to chat with on Facebook and SO creative! Lanette’s challenges push me and stretch me in all the right creative ways!!
For this hop challenge we were given this color palette:
dt reveal hop colour

And here is what I made.

I am not American so creating something patriotic just didn’t feel right to me. I am Canadian and while I can happily embrace the Red and White … the Blue was giving me a bit of trouble. That was, until I threw out the notion of only creating something for the 4th of July! I’m sure if you’re American and reading this you can see your way to forgiving me!! 🙂

Last week we said good bye to our school secretary. She’d been with the school for 4 years which may not seem like much but when you take into account that our family has also been at the school for 4 years, you’ll understand how hard it was for me to say good bye to her. A special card was needed and since I had a stack of bases ready to go (see this post) I used the red one to help me meet the colour criteria for today’s challenge.

Another designer friend of mine supplied the cut file to create the triangles in my card base.  She has graciously made the triangle cut file available for FREE download on her blog – check it out here.

Clearly I adapted it to fit a standard sized card (it’s a 12″ x 12″ cut file)! The white triangles then gave me places to add some blue accents. Buttons, stamps and some pen stitches gave the card all the finishing touches it needed. Oh, as well as a little sparkle in the form of Stickles!!

So now its up to you to create something using the colors Red White & Blue and link it up at S.W.A.T for a chance to win this pretty prize pack.

  1. Great example for the challenge! Love the butterfly! I didn’t go with a patriot theme either though I’m in the US, so you’re totally forgiven. ;-D lol

    • LOL! Thanks Doris. I’ll stop looking out my window for the red white and blue hit squad then!! 🙂

  2. Very cool card. Love the diferent elements and the cute little butterfly. Great job.

  3. I don’t have Facebook, gasp I know but I can follow you on Pinterest! Hope that will be okay! Great card and happy Canada Day from another fellow Canadian!

    • Hi Cindy, I would LOVE it if you followed me on Pinterest! No worries about not having FB 🙂 Great to hear from a fellow Canadian and Happy Canada Day to you too!

  4. I was baffled by the colours at first, too! I love your card, and Ièm thrilled to be on this team with you! Happy Canada Day to a fellow Canadian. 🙂

  5. I now follow you on Facebook! Yeah! I love your card design and the triangles in the background! Very clever!

  6. GREAT card!!! Just love that butterfly . . . I’m going to have to get that one for my stash. 🙂 I am a new follower on Facebook . . . can’t wait to see what you have in store for us this next 6- months. 🙂

    • Thanks Katherine. That’s a Stampin’ Up stamp set from last year’s catalogue. Not sure if they still carry it or not but it is definitely one of my favs!

  7. I love how you did a non-US interpretation of Red white and blue! SO perfect! glad to be on the team with you!

  8. Love it! So glad to see someone didn’t create a fourth of july themed project! Us Americans will surely forgive you… But only because this project is so adorable. I love the small hints of blue and your triangle background. So fun to be on SWAT with you!

  9. Wow it’s really nice…Excellent work you did. I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post. Keep sharing more.
