I’ve had a few weeks off from the Colour Inkspiration Crew as I’ve been volunteering at the Commonwealth Games.  It was a great experience!!  I’ve been back at work this week which has been a challenge to get up so early!!

This week’s colour combo is just stunning!!  Night of Navy, Pink Pirouette, Gold Foil and Whisper White.

I’m really sad to see that Rose Wonder stamp set and the matching Rose Gardent thinlits are on the retirement list.  I just love them!

I mainly use the large floral thinlit in the set, so this time, I decided to use the single rose.  I cut it out in Night of Navy and then used my fine tip glue to attach it to a stitched circle.  I added a gold foil scalloped circle behind it all.

I then created the sentiment by cutting out 2 of the gold foil piece and snipping them to create a gold border.

An easy bow using the Night of Navy crinkle ribbon and voila, a lovely card!

It’s finally starting to get a bit cooler (hopefully we are on the down hill slide to winter!).  It’s so much nicer to craft without the humidity!

We are back with another gorgeous colour challenge this week.  (Actually, aren’t they all amazing!)  We are using Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride, Garden Green and Very Vanilla.

Isn’t the inspiration picture just divine!  These colours just make me think of flowers!

I always chuckle when Crumb Cake is used for a challenge.  Whenever I use Crumb Cake in my classes, my mum (who always comes) hates Crumb Cake and calls it the dung colour!!  And how often do we use crumb cake?  All the time!!!  It makes a great base for all sorts of colours.

I have used the Garden Trellis embossing folder to create some texture on the background.  I then dug out my Rose Wonder stamp set.  I wanted to do soft colouring for the flowers so I inked up the rose of the stamp with Blushing Bride ink and then carefully inked up the leaves in Garden Green.  I then coloured them in using the ink and an aqua painter, being careful to not make it too damp. I cut out the flower by hand.

I added some mini gold sequin trim behind the flowers cos you always need sparke!

I stamped the outline of the sentiment in Chocolate Chip and the Happy Birthday in Garden Green then cut it out on the big shot using the matching die from the Rose Garden Thinlits.

It’s seems like only just the other day we had a colour challenge!  This year is already flying past so quickly!!

We have another great colour combo for you this week!  It’s Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum and Lemon Lime Twist.

I went with the Cake Soiree stamp set but decided to use the large present stamp and not the cakes for something different.

I stamped in Memento Ink and coloured the image using markers.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and cut out the circles from the Layering Circle framelits.  The sweet little butterfly is from the matching Sweet Cake Framelits.

I love the clean and simple look of this card.

Welcome back to another Colour Challenge with Colour Inkspiration!  And Happy Valentine’s Day!  Hope you taking the opportunity to tell your loved ones how much you love them.

We have a really lovely combination for you this week with Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, Pool Party and Island Indigo.

ci27Whenever I get ready to create my card for a colour challenge, I get out all the colours in cardstock for inspiration.  I then decide upon the stamp set and go from there.  So I started with the Butterfly from the Beautiful Da stamp set.  I embossed in silver embossing powder on watercolour paper and then coloured with my aqua painter, using Powder Pink, Melon Mambo and Pool Party.

I then layered the card base of Island Indigo with Powder Pink and the watercolour background.  I then cut out a scallop circle and a stitched circle and stamped the sentiment from the Sale-a-bration Happy Wishes stamp set, which I then embossed in silver.

I added a Powder Pink shimmer ribbon behind the circles.

I hope you are inspired by my card today.  Head on over to Monique for more inspiration!

We are back with our second challenge of the year already!  It looks like this year is going to go as fast as 2017, which is good as I’m planning on travelling to Orlando, Florida in November for a Stampin’ Up! 30th anniversary Onstage event.  Bring it on!!

We have a gorgeous colour combination this week, of Emerald Envy, Bermuda Bay, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand.

CI26

I decided to try a new technique for my background.   I had a piece of glossy white cardstock and put drops of each colour (but not sahara sand) over the card.  I then spritzed it with Isocol and let the colours blend together.   Because I was impatient, I dried it using my heat gun, but you could let it dry on its own.

I really love the Hold on to Hope stamp set and bundle.  It was created by Million Sales Achiever Brandy Cox when she got to visit the Stampin’ Up! office.

I created the cross by cutting out the detailed cross framelit and the solid cross framelit and glued them together with the fine tip glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped on Sahara Sand and cut out with the largest stitched circle framelit.

I can’t wait to try other colour combinations using this technique.

Next up is the lovely Nicole.  You are going to love her card!

Welcome back to a new year!  It’s been a while since I joined in with a Colour Inkspiration Hop but I’m determined to join in more regularly this year.

We are starting off with a lovely colour combo of Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White.

CI25Now I have to confess that of the current in colours, Lemon Lime Twist was definitely not one of my favourites.  But I think I have actually used it the most!!  It just seems like a colour that goes with many others.

I’m trying to do more simple, easy to re-create cards this year, so that was where I started out.  I also wanted to play with the Petal Palette stamp set which is so lovely!

I inked the flowers in Night of Navy and added a Lemon Lime Twist branch as well.  I didn’t like how you could see the branch so I decided to ink the stamp on a separate piece of cardstock and fussy cut it out.  I then used my aqua painter to fill in the leaves and flowers.  (Yes I know roses don’t come in blue, but it’s my favourite colour, so why not!)  I also put Wink of Stella over the flowers.

I then added a strip of ribbon and a bow using the Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon.  The sentiment is also from the Petal Palette stamp set.

I love how clean this card looks!

It seems like Colour Inkspiration challenges come around so quickly!   We have a great combo of colours this week with Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Garden Green.

I recently purchased the Hello Color stamp set and thought this would be a great opportunity to try it out.  I embossed the stamp in silver embossing powder to make it stand out then I got out all my markers and had a little therapy session of colouring!!

It needed a bit of bling so I embossed a piece of silver foil with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.  I then added a banner in basic gray and stamped the sentiment on the Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  I think this is fast becoming my go-to birthday set!

This was a fun card to make!!  I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Crew has created.

Next up is Rachel.

Happy Stamping
