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.

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.
