I love having a day off during the week to be able to play in my craft room!! I’m doing a spot of shift work at the moment and working irregular days so craft day it is today!! Tell me, why do work days go so slowly and home days just fly?

This week at Colour Inkspiration, we are playing with a gorgeous colour combo of Sahara Sand, Mango Melody, Blueberry Bushel, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.

Isn’t this is a gorgeous picture? These colours do look beachy. When I was deciding on what to create, I got out the cardstock in the five colours and laid them on my bench on top of a new craft I have discovered!! (Like I need to find another craft to do!!) I have found diamond painting! It is like cross stitch but with beads being stuck onto a sticky background.

So I was inspired this recent project that I had finished and have waiting on my craft bench to be framed. I liked the geometric design which inspired my cards for today.

I have used the Florentine Filigree stamp set and Florentine thinlits to create my card. I cut out 4 frames in Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana and made little piles on my bench of all the little pieces. I started playing with different layouts and attached them to the card with the fine tip glue pen. I then stamped in versamark on the medallions. Don’t worry if they don’t line up perfectly as they are not meant to. #letitgo

I then stamped the large circle image in Mango Melody and cut out using the circle framelits. I added a piece of flax ribbon behind the sentiment.

So then I still have 3 frames and lots of little pieces left over so I did some playing!!

Stitched Rectangle framelits for the win!!
This sentiment is from the Incredible Like You stamp set

So I hope you are inspired by my little set of cards! Next up is the lovely Cathy.

Come and share your creation with us at our Facebook group.

Happy Stamping

  1. The inset pieces in the frame are lovely – worth the effort. The Mango Melody circles are so bold, they draw the eye straight to the sentiment. Lovely!
