Colour INKspiration # 83 Joyful Holly


Hello and Welcome to this gorgeous Colour combination with Colour INKspiration challenges.  


Our colour challenge is inspired by a fabulous picture from Pinterest.  We are currently featuring our new Incolours.  What do you think of this one?


The colours this time are:  Bumblebee  Mossy Meadow, Whisper White and Basic Black. 
 I've used them with one of my new stamp sets - Joyful Holly.  


There are a couple of variations on my card.  The card on the left has the script from the Very Versailles stamp set and more Holly Berry's stamped randomly around it.  (The truth is that I had to cover up a few ink smudges!!!)  The other two card feature a different version for the berries.  The centre one has some of the Shimmery Crystal Effects, and the one on the right has some Bumblebee Enamel dots for the Holly.  


The background of the card was coloured with Bumblebee Ink using a water painter to create a very soft wash of colour.  


The inside of the card is very simple using some of the lovely stamps from Joyful Holly.  

We would love you to join in this challenge with us and share your project featuring these colours - just add your photo to the lineup on our Facebook challenge page.

CASEING the Cover CTC#280


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 Stampin' Up! Catalogues.  Welcome if you have just arrived from Judy.


This week we are CASEING any of the projects from the Front Cover of our new Mini Catalogue.  I have been inspired by 2 cards - the card in front with the sleigh and deer, and the card on the far right with the bells.  


I've used the gorgeous Detailed Dove Dies for this card inspired by the card in the front.  The base card is one of the Wonder of the Seasons Memories and More cards and envelopes which are printed with the gorgeous foil frame on the front which is reminiscent of the DSP layer on the inspiration card.  


I've used a double ribbon layer with the Metallic Mesh ribbon and the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon underneath a greeting from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  


My second card inspired by the card on the far right features the Poinsettia Place papers and the Brushed Metallic cardstock.  The base card is one of the Gold Cards and Envelopes.   


I have fussy cut the image from the paper to emulate the bells feature on the inspiration card.   Again, I've used the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set for the greeting and also used the lovely Embroidered ribbon for the extra features. 


I hope you've been inspired to look again at the front cover of our new Mini Catalogue!  


Up next on our first hop featuring the Mini Catalogue is the lovely Peta


You can join in the fun with us after you've finished hopping through everyone by adding your photo of your project inspired by the front cover of the Mini Catalogue!!

A sketch challenge for CTC#279


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 our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues which are full of inspiration.



Our challenge this week is to CASE a sketch of the card on page 72.  Welcome if you have just arrived from the lovely Monique.  Make sure you keep hopping around the whole team to see lots of amazing projects inspired by this sketch!!  

I have used this sketch as my starting point to make a heap of thankyou cards for my customers!!  And this card is the first play that I have had with some of the new goodies from the NEW MINI catalogue that goes live from the 4th August!!  Woohoo!!


This stamp set called Life is Beautiful is so pretty.  It has a lovely tree and then a choice of leaves/foliage so suit many seasons!!  I've used the super cute layered dots in Seaside Spray combined with Night of Navy.


The card front has been embossed with one of the lovely Greenery embossing folders, and the thankyou greeting comes from Many Mates - this is a really super useful greeting stamp set!!  


Inside the card features some more of the lovely spots.


The final lovely addition is the gorgeous Blue Adhesive-Baked Gems!  They are soooo pretty!!  Make sure you check them out in the new Mini catalogue!!  


Up next on our hop this week is the wonderful Peta!
