I’m excited to be back with Colour Inkspiration tonight!! We have another lovely colour combo to share with you.
We have Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, Bumblebee and Whisper White.
I started off with the Ornate Floral embossing folder in Bumblebee and added a piece of Whisper White Polka dot ribbon. I stamped the large floral stamp from Ornate Style stamp set and coloured it using blends. I did have to use Daffodil Delight as there isn’t a Bumblebee blend. I love how you can get different colours by using the light and dark pens.
The sentiment is from Peaceful Moments stamp set and I cut it out with Painted Labels dies.
We would love to see your creations using this colour combo over on at our Facebook group, here.
Welcome to a New Year, a new catalogue and new challenges at CTC!! We are mixing things up this year and our challenges will be running for 2 weeks. The Crew will be doing a weekly hop every Sunday but will be doing the same challenge for 2 weeks.
The 2020 January – June Mini Catalogue started on Friday!! So we are starting off the year by casing your choice of project from the catalogue.
I started from the back of the catalogue and decided to case one of the cards in the Botanical Prints group on page 62.
I cased the card in the middle and used the Peaceful Poppies suite. I went with a Pool Party base and embossed a piece with the new stunning Parisian Flourish embossing folder.
I then stamped a few poppies and poppy backgrounds in Poppy Parade from the Painted Poppies stamp set. I then cut them out using the Painted Labels dies. I also cut out one of the labels for the sentiment which is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. This set is also part of the Peaceful Poppies suite which includes the Painted Poppies Bundle, the Peaceful Moments Bundle, the Peaceful Poppies DSP, Sequins, Whisper White Seam binding ribbon and Peaceful Poppies elements. You can order all these goodies with just the one code!! (153938 in case you need to know!)
I cut out a couple of poppy outlines and leaves using the Poppy Moments dies. You could cut the leaves in two colours to create shading but I decided to keep it the same. I glued together the two layers of leaves and the poppy outlines.
I added a piece of braided burlap trim and then layered up the leaves and flowers. After playing with the layout, I used glue dots on the leaves and dimensionals on the flowers. I then added the sentiment block over the top and added a burlap bow. I added a bit of Wink of Stella onto the flowers for a touch of sparkle.
This card looks so luxurious with that embossing folder! I can’t wait to play with it more.
Next up is the lovely Shannon.
We would love to see your creations from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalogue. This challenge will end on 19 January.
