Challenge #7 Spice Girls (Spice up your life with colour - girls)

Today is my turn again (Doris) to present you our new challenge: Spice Girls (You color my world).     
We want you to show us what color the world of you girl is . Your inner girl, your daughter, your niece, cousin, friend. Using elements that are part of the world of this girl and of course, lots and lots of Color. The team are using the cute files from our sponsor The Cutting Cafe:

The Prizes
The prizes for our three favourite entries are:
1st prize: three sets or images of your choice 
2nd prize: two sets or images of your choice 
3rd prize: one sets or image of your choice

And to add a little spice to our Spice Challenge, I share you a Spice song with a Spice Girls.

Now let's see what our Guest Designer and our Design Team have prepared us for this Spice Challenge.

Donna said "I used the colored version of the CC files and fussy cut up a storm." Nice one Donna!

Gaby made this cute card, showing in the cuttest way almost all the digis from the ALL ABOUT GIRLS PRINTABLE STAMP SET series provided by our sponsor The Cutting Cafe. Thank you Gaby, great work!!!


Yes, fantastic creation Gaby! I could've done with some of those hangers! I decided to make a little shop too and add all the little dresses and handbags from the The Cutting Cafe inside so you can see them through the window, because we all love window shopping!

As all women, I love fashion, color, shimmer, clothes, bags, shoes... I think you understand me :o)
For my project I made a shelf card to make a perfecto showroom for those girly digis our sponsor provided us.

This is the beautiful project Gemma wanted to share with us for this challenge. In this case she used ALL ABOUT GIRLS PRINTABLE STAMP SET from The Cutting Cafe, our amazing sponsor. Best wishes for you Gemma!!

Cindy has used YOU COLOR MY WORLD....PRINTABLE STAMP SET to make her very modern card.

As well as using the backgrounds from You Colour My World for both the little Girl's overalls and background, I used sentiments from All About Girls, and a banner from All Occasions Banners. The girl is called Rose from Big Girl -Elisha Jean and Friends which is one of the sets I have won from Cutting Cafe this year.
For this new challenge, I made ​​a Drawer Card. I have to say I had fun working on this project, it  is really fun everything hinges on the girls. I chose bright colors and  very girly designs paper.

In addition, I worked with the file ALL ABOUT GIRLS PRINTABLE STAMP SET from our fabulous sponsor The Cutting Cafe. What I did was trace and cut the files into different paper, and I gave them light and shadow using ink. 

Finally, I added some embellishments, some double side adhesive foam to the dress and that´s it. I hope to see your beautiful creations!

My second project is the easy way to use this amazing files from The Cutting Cafe, our generous sponsor for this new challenge. Just print, cut and paste. For this simple card, I used YOU COLOR MY WORLD....PRINTABLE STAMP SET as a background and ALL ABOUT GIRLS PRINTABLE STAMP SET. Enjoy the challenge!
