Super Pretty Colour INKspiration #108


Hello and Welcome!!


Tonight I'm joining in the challenge with these amazing colours!!  


The Colour INKspiration challenges are so much fun!!  This week, we have Daffodil Delight, Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Balmy Blue and Coastal Cabana to inspire you!!  And look at these amazing steps!!  


I've decided to go quite simple this time, and used the lovely Christmas Tree dies combined with the Merriest Moment stamp set for a totally different Christmas Card colour scheme.  


I sponged and stamped on the thick white base card using Coastal Cabana ink and a blending brush and the Merriest Moment stamp set.  I then added another layer which had been embossed with the little dots embossing folder.  The greetings also come from the Merriest Moments stamp set, and then I've die cut a bunch of the skinny small trees from the Christmas trees dies and added them to the front and also inside the card.


These colours are a long way from my comfort zone, but I think my card is so pretty!!!

Inspiration from Sale-a-bration CTC#336


Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.  


To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues (Catty).


This week, we are CASEING from our Sale-a-bration catalogue!!  

Sale-a-bration Catalogue P14 Images © Stampin' Up!

I have been inspired by the gorgeous colouring, layering and watery colouring of the card featuring the Delicate Dahlias stamp set.


I was also incredibly inspired by Sandra's gorgeous project here featuring the same layout.  


This is a triple easel card.  I've CASED the lovely soft colouring of the flowers and fussy cut them out along with the leaves to create the same front of the card as the sale-a-bration sample, but then split the image to accommodate the triple easel.  My background comes from the gorgeous Bloom Where You're planted designer paper.


I've stamped in Saddle Brown stazon ink onto Shimmery white cardstock and then used a water painter with Shaded Spruce, Blushing Bride and So Saffron inks.  The main title of the card on the front was stamped with Cinnamon Cider and layered onto gold ribbon and embellished with a gold trim bow.


My finishing touch was some of the gorgeous brushed metallic dots arranged exactly the same as the sample card.  


So, what do you think?  Thankyou Sandra for the great fancy fold idea, and thankyou Stampin' Up for the great layout idea!!  

Up next is the very clever Michelle!!
