Welcome to another fun week of Colour Inkspiration.

This challenge showcases a couple of the new In-colours, Terracotta Tile and Pretty Peacock and also Petal Pink and Blueberry Bushel.

As I was working out my project, I realised that one of the papers in the Noble Specialty DSP was in Blueberry Bushel. I haven’t used these papers yet so I was excited to get it out! I used it as my background and as my centre piece covered a large portion of it, I used a smaller rectangle die and cut out the middle so that I didn’t waste it.

I cut out a stitched rectangle in Petal Pink and I used the You are Simply Wonderful stamp from the Bloom and Grow stamp set. I used the stamparatus to stamp the image, moving the plate down one step at a time. I haven’t done this technique before but it’s so easy! I think my stamp club ladies will be learning something new this month.

I then stamped one of the floral images from the Bloom & Grow set, cut it out using the Budding Blooms die and coloured it using blender pens and the Terracotta Tile, Petal Pink and Pretty Peacock ink pads. I also covered the flowers with Wink of Stella. I added a strip of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon and also a bow.

I’m really happy with how this card turned out! I hope you like it too.

I’m excited to back with Colour Inkspiration Challenges this week!

We have such a lovely, bright combo to share with you. Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green.

To create my cards for CI challenges, I always start by getting out the cardstock in the challenge colours. I then browse through my stamp sets to see what inspires me. I keep my stamp sets in alphabetical order and as you will be able to tell, I didn’t get very far this time!! I went with Accented Blooms as I love colouring the flowers.

I coloured the greenery using a blender pen and Granny Apple Green ink. I then coloured the flowers using the Lovely Lipstick and Daffodil Delight blends. I didn’t actually blend the colours but used the light and dark pens to create different coloured flowers.

To add a bit of texture, I used the Subtle embossing folder on the Daffodil Delight layer. I also tied a knot in a piece of Granny Apple Green textured weave ribbon across the bottom of the card.

Next up is the lovely Jackie.

We can’t wait to see what you create using these colours, so please add your creation to our Facebook group.

Welcome back to Colour Inkspiration Challenges. Can you believe that we are half way through February already!! Don’t you just love our new look! A big thank you to Crew member, Rose for the amazing job she did.

Our first challenge this week is Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch and Highland Heather. Isn’t it such a pretty combo?

I was happy to discover that the Gingham Gala DSP Stack has Highland Heather as one of the colours, so I used it on the front of my card. I punched out the black and white butterflies from the SAB Botantical Butterfly DSP using the Butterfly Duet punch and sponged them with a sponge dauber with different combinations of the four colours.

I cut out a Highland Heather frame using the Frosted Boutique framlits and stamped the sentiment from Abstract Impressions stamp set. I used one of the SAB Organdy Ribbons behind the sentiment piece.

I decided I needed something extra to go with it as this will make a lovely Valentine’s gift for my husband (which is tomorrow you know!!).

I made a small gift bag using the gift bag punch board. I added a little flap at the top and made a little tag using the Sweet Cake framelits.

Here’s a close up of the card and bag separately.

I hope you enjoy my projects!! I had fun colouring the butterflies. Next up is the lovely Rachel.

We would love to see your creations with this Colour combo. Join us at our Facebook Group.

I’m excited to be back with Colour Inkspiration and joining in with a Colour Challenge.

This week we have a gorgeous combo of Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel, Gorgeous Grape and Lovely Lipstick.  Isn’t our inspiration image just lovely.

It would be easy to go with a floral card but the first thing I though of was butterflies.  I had a browse of my stamp sets and I went with the Beautiful Day set.

I got out a piece of water colour paper and played with the colours.  I then stamped the butterfly on top with Memento Ink.  The butterfly didn’t come out very well, so I used my basic black marker to colour it in properly.  I then painted the butterfly with Frost White shimmer paint which gave a mother of pearl look to it.

I stamped the background with the Buffalo check stamp set.  This set is so versatile!

I added a few banners in white velvet and granny apple green textured weave ribbon and stamped the sentiment.

I’m excited to playing along with the Colour Inkspiration challenge this week.  I just love this colour combo!!

ci44It’s Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, Highland Heather, Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz.

I wanted to use the Beautiful Promenade bundle which includes the Beautiful Layers thinlits.  I love the diamond shape you can cut out with the thinlits.  So that’s where I started with Highland Heather cardstock.

I used the lovely Petal Promenade DSP as my background.  I then stamped a couple of the flowers in Blushing Bride and leaves in Pear Pizzazz and cut them out with the thinlits.

I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand and cut it out using the tag from Petals & More thinlits.

I added a ribbon on the side.  It’s from the Metallic ribbon combo pack.

Welcome to another great week at Colour Inkspiration!   We are showcasing the Regals Colour collection this week.  You can choose 3 colours and any of the basics.

As you may know, I’m heading to Orlando in November to attend Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary Onstage event.  And, of course, I’ll be visiting all the Walt Disney World parks!!

The Graceful Glass vellum reminds me of the roses from Beauty and the Beast so I based my card around that.

I coloured using the Real Red and Shaded Spruce.  I added a piece of whisper white card stock behind the vellum to make the colours stand out more.  I also stamped two flowers from the Painted Glass stamp set and cut out with the Stained Glass thinlits.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of crushed curry and cut out with the Everyday Label punch.

At Colour INKspiration this week, we are showcasing the Subtles colour collection.  So many pretty colours!

So our challenge this week is to use 3 colours and you can add basics as well (being white, vanilla and black).  I’ve used So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink with a Whisper White base.

One of my favourite embossing folders is the new Tufted folder.  Love!! I used this to add some texture to the background of the card.

I wanted to use my new Time for Tea stamp set, so I stamped in Memento Ink and then coloured in Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I actually fussy cut out the tea cup but I’ve just looked at the matching Spot of Tea framelits and there’s a cup!  doh, silly me!

The sentiment is stamped in Soft Sea Foam.  I’ve also cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using one of the framelits in the set.    I added a piece of polka dot ribbon for some more texture and three little flowers in So Saffron as well.
