I’m back with Colour Inkspiration this week! It’s been a little while since I had a chance to join in here.

Check out our colours for this challenge. We have Night of Navy, Merry Merlot, Blackberry Bliss and Pretty Peacock.

Aren’t these colours just divine! As always, I get out a piece of each cardstock and see how I feel inspired by them. I was also inspired by the image and wanted to create a luxurious background. So I flipped through my embossing folders and I was drawn to the Tin Tile embossing folder. Once I had embossed a piece of Blackberry Bliss, I wanted to step it up a notch and I brushed the retired Golden Glitz ink pad over the cardstock.

I then cut out a couple of shapes from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and stamped a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

We would love to see your creations using this colour combo, so please share over on at our Facebook group.

Welcome to an exciting new year at Colour Inkspiration!!

It’s our third birthday today!!! Happy Birthday to us!! In honour of our birthday, our theme is Birthday cards. It is also a choose your own colour challenge. You can choose 3 colours and of course you can choose neutrals and metallics as always.

I decided to choose Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party and Petal Pink. Now these colours are part of the gorgeous new Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP.

So I choose a piece of the pretty DSP which also features champagne foil for a bit of bling. I started off with a base of Pool Party. I cut out in Petal Pink a solid Eifel tower and the cut out one from the new Parisian dies. I had thought they layered together but I like the 3d look as the real tower kinda looks like that. I then stamped in Cherry Cobbler the Happy Birthday sentiment from the free Sale-a-bration stamp set, Timeless Tulips. Cut out with my favourite Stitched Rectangle dies and then layered with another piece of Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP which I tore around the edges for a softer look.

I just love the Parisian dies, don’t you!

Next up is my friend, Monique.

This challenge will be running for 4 weeks and will end on 10 February. We would love to see your creation so please share it on our Facebook group.

Welcome to a fun week of Colour Inkspiration. I’m having a week off work as I’m not having any time off over Christmas (very sad about that!). I’m having a lovely time sleeping in (7am is a sleep in, right?), doing some Christmas shopping, crafting with my Mum and doing some Christmas baking.

We have a great colour combo to play with this week, with Blueberry Bushel, Shaded Spruce, Coastal Cabana, Pretty Peacock and silver.

Isn’t this image just gorgeous! I always start by getting out the cardstock in all the colours and I realised that Blueberry Bushel is part of the Noel Peacock Foil pack. I wanted to emboss it, using the Tin Tile embossing folder. Doesn’t it look stunning!

I used a Pretty Peacock base, and layered the BB foil piece with Silver foil. I decided to use the Bells are Ringing set and matching Detailed Bells Dies. I silver embossed the large bell and then stamped the inside parts of the bell using the Silvery Shimmer ink. I then cut out three other bells in Blueberry Bushel, Coastal Cabana and Silver foil. I also stamped a bunch of leaves in Shaded Spruce.

The sentiment is in Blueberry Bushel and cut out with my favourite Stitched Rectangle dies.

Next up is the lovely Monique. I can’t wait to see what she has created.

Welcome to a colourful week at Colour Inkspiration. I’m so glad to be playing along this week.

I went to a Christmas craft gift fair yesterday with my mum and I’m so excited for Christmas!! I love seeing all the gorgeous decorations!!

We have a beautiful colour combo this week. We have Pacific Point, Merry Merlot, Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz.

The Christmastime is Here bundle is now available from 1 November. It includes the Christmas Rose stamp set, Roses Dies, Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP, Gold Glitter Enamel dots, Gold Shimmer Ribbon and a gorgeous bracelet!.

I have been waiting to play with this set and I thought I would have a play with these colours. I used my aqua painter and coloured away!! I used a Pacific Point marker for the berries. I added Wink of Stella over the whole lot once it was dry. I cut out a silver foil strip from the Roses dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Rose stamp set in the gorgeous Silvery Shimmer ink. (Note if you love these shiny inks, including copper and gold, they will not be carrying through so make sure you order them soon!)

Next up is the lovely Jan.

We would love to see what you create with this colours, so make sure you share your project over on at our Facebook group.
