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.

CI07 – Flowers

I’ve had a busy weekend in Sydney at the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event.  It was great to catch up with some of the girls from the Colour Inkspiration Crew and get to meet up in person!

Our challenge this week is so pretty!!  Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, Pink Pirouette and Daffodil Delight!!

I wanted to go floral for this challenge.  So I grabbed out one of my favourite floral sets, Flower Patch and the matching framelits, Floral Fair. As I was flipping through my framelits, I went past the Rose Garden thinlits, which helped me choose my sentiment piece.

For a bit of background texture, I used the Softly Falling embossing folder.  I also put some Wink of Stella on the flowers but it doesn’t photograph very well.

I hope you have enjoyed my card tonight!

Next up on the hop is the lovely Nicole.

 

Happy Stamping

Welcome back to another Colour Inkspiration challenge.  Aren’t you just loving seeing all the amazing entries on the Facebook Group?  Congratulations to the winners this week.

I really like the colours in this week’s challenge.  My first thought was baby but apparently a few other team members thought the same so I decided to go floral instead.

This week’s colours are Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and Sahara Sand.  I was excited to find that these colours are in my favourite DSP, Falling in Love from the Occasions catalogue.

I had a flip through my framelits and found the Rose Garden thinlits and decided to base my card around them.  They are just so pretty, I should use them more often.

Once I glued the flowers to the card, I then added Wink of Stella to the flowers to make them sparkle a bit more.  Unfortunately Stella doesn’t seem to photograph well, but she’s there!
