Welcome to another fun Colour challenge at Colour Inkspiration!

Isn’t this a gorgeous image!! Our colours are Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Just Jade and Pretty Peacock.

INKspired to join the challenge? It’s so easy. Firstly, get some INKspiration by checking out all of the creations of the Colour INKspiration Crew in the challenge album on our Facebook page. Then you have 12 days from today to make and upload your creation to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group. You don’t have to have a blog to participate but if you do you can link back to your post. Make sure you use all of the challenge colours. You can also use neutrals such as Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Basic Black as well as Metallics.

As I was getting out the colours, I was inspired to use the Arrange a Wreath bundle. I created a piece of water colouring using re-inkers in Crushed Curry, Just Jade and Pretty Peacock. I wasn’t sure it was going to work as the Pretty Peacock didn’t look very good but once I cut it out using the wreath builder dies, it’s perfect!! I then cracked open a new Wink of Stella and sparkled up the wreath.

The sentiment is from Arrange a Wreath, stamped in Pretty Peacock and cut out using my favourite dies, Stitched So Sweetly. Oh and I used the Tasteful Textile embossing folder for the background.

We would love to see your creation so make sure you check out our Facebook group.

CTC291 – Case a project from pages 71-75

Welcome to another week of Caseing the Catty! I’m pleased to share that my team won at Bathurst!! Ok, so I may have been going for the car that crashed out on lap 36 but the other car in the same team won!!

This week we are casing a project from pages 71 – 75 of the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue.

Have you checked out these pages? There’s lots of extra projects featuring all the bundles in the catalogue.

I’ve decided to case the card on the top left of page 73. And I’ve just noticed it’s in our challenge image!

I’m on a Pointsettia run at the moment and I had an extra gold flower on my desk so I decided to base my card around that.

I used a piece of the Poinsettia Place DSP as the background and used a Stitched Rectangle for the centre piece.

I stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia Petals in Garden Green and then added 3 flowers cut from the Poinsettia dies using gold foil.

This gorgeous DSP is on sale until the end of October so make sure you grab some now! Click here to go to my online store and stock up!

Next up is the lovely Michelle.

CTC290 – Case the colours of the Plaid Tidings DSP

It’s going to be a short post today as I’m planning a busy day of watching Bathurst!! Fingers crossed for my boys, Red Bull Holden Racing!

This week, we are casing the colours of the Plaid Tidings DSP. Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, Misty Moonlight, Pretty Peacock, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Seaside Spray, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White (You don’t have to use them all!!)

I haven’t used this dsp very much although I do like it! I’ve gone with one of Christmas papers (although not all the papers are Christmas themed). I also used a Mojo Monday sketch (you can see them all here).

I started with a Shaded Spruce base and added a teeny tiny strip of Mango Melody around the edge to give it a bit of lift. In the middle I’ve used the baubles from the Ornamental Envelopes stamp set, which I stamped in Shaded Spruce and die cut using the Envelope dies. I then mounted them with dimensionals for a bit of a lift.

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas Greetings, die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.

Next up is the lovely Sandra.

We’d love to see your creation so please share over on at our Facebook group.

I’m off to watch the racing!!

CTC289 – Case a Halloween Project

I hope you have had a great week! It’s certainly starting to warm up here in Queensland. I think we might be skipping spring and jumping straight into summer!

We are casing the Halloween projects of the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue.

When I went to select my project, I realised that there aren’t too many Halloween projects to choose from!! Gee, who came up with this challenge! Oh yeah, that’s right, me!! I selected a card from page 75 which showcases the bundles of the catalogue.

Isn’t that a cute card and a great layout! You could do so many cards with this layout.

I used the Feels like Frost Specialty DSP as the background and then silver embossed the sentiment from For Unto Us on a piece of Night of Navy cardstock. I used the Tasteful Labels dies for the sentiment. I added a piece of Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon. Such a quick and easy card to create!

I hope you like my card and are inspired to give this layout a go.

Next up is the lovely Peta.

We would love to see your creation casing a Halloween project so please share over on at our Facebook group.
