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.

New Catty Pennsationals Blog Hop

I’m so excited to doing a Blog Hop tonight with my amazing team, the Pennsationals and to be sharing the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue with you.

There are so many fabulous new products in this catalogue, I had trouble deciding what to share with you.  For my first card, I decided to go with the Just Add Text stamp set and the new Delightful Daisy DSP.

I used my favourite framelits, the Stitched Shape framelits and the matching Layering Oval framelits.  Oh and check out the new Daffodil Delight Double stitched ribbon.

For my second card, I went with Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  This set has an interesting combination of stamps.  I really like the flowers in this set.

Now I have to confess that Lemon Lime Twist is not my favourite In Color, however, I thought I would give it a go as a watercolor background.  I guess it’s ok!  lol!

I used Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo and I was quite surprised at how nice they look together.

Next up on the hop is my lovely upline and friend, Tracy Penn.

If you happen to get lost on the hop, here is a list of all the participants.

Colour Inkspiration 10

I can’t believe that we are up to our 10th Colour Challenge already!!  Where is this year going?

Congratulations for our winners for Challenge 9.  We had lots of gorgeous entries.  You can join in with our fortnightly challenge by joining us at the Facebook group and sharing your entry with the group.

This week’s challenge is another hard one!!  We have Cajun Craze, Smoky Slate, Delightful Dijon and Island Indigo.

When I start a colour challenge, I always get out all of the colours in the cardstock and lay them together.  Then I start playing with what might look good as a base.  Then I look at my stamp sets and see what takes my fancy.  I love the new Happy Birthday thinlits so I decided to go with that and the matching stamp set, Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  I cut out a Happy birthday with the thinlits in Delightful Dijon and did a second one in Island Indigo and glued them together with a little overlap.

My first layout didn’t look right, so as I re-arranged, I laid the thinlit cutout on top of an Island Indigo base and inspiration struck!!  The stamp set includes balloons which match the Balloon Bouquet punch so I stamped a couple in Smoky Slate and Cajun Craze.  I then pulled apart a piece of baker’s twine and and tied it to the top of the H.  I think it looks kinda cute!!

Now whilst these colours are quite a challenge, I dare you to give them a try!!  Sometimes it’s great to try something that you wouldn’t usually do.  You might be surprised!!

Next up is my lovely friend, Mel.
