Colour INKspiration #07

Thank you once again for all the support you’ve been giving our colour challenges!

It’s the second Wednesday of the month, which means a new colour combination to inspire us!

This fortnight, we’re playing with a sweet palette of Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette & Tip Top Taupe.

I’m so pleased to be celebrating my 2 favourite outgoing In Colors.  With the retirement list released yesterday, make sure you’ve stocked up on all the 2015-2017 In Color supplies you need.  Once they sell out, they’ll be gone {forever!}.

I was going to tuck away my new OnStage stamps and share them with you a bit later, but I couldn’t resist for this card on 2 counts….

  1. This stamp set is adorable!
  2. The colours are perfect for a little piggy!!!

So, let me introduce you to one of the little piggies we’ll be meeting when the new catalogue launches on 1st June 2017.

I love this time of the year – the triple dipping is wonderful for creativity!

I have products from the two current catalogues plus all the sneak peeks from the upcoming catalogue!  It’s going to make for some fabulous creations!

I took the colour theme through to the inside of this card too…

This piggy is going to be a hit!  Such a happy little gal!

Thanks for joining me for a colour filled blog hop.

Never Ending Succulent Card

Today I’m sharing a card with you that I made for one of my stamping besties.

Lou & I bonded online and then met for the first time in Brisbane at OnStage – where we had a giggle over both being sent the Succulent stamp set for our display board stamping.

So, there’s a touch of irony in this card – the never-ending succulent card!

A Never-Ending card was one of the first fancy cards I made.  It definitely delivered a wow factor then and still does now!!!

Here’s a video of Lou’s card in action…

A never ending card flips and flips and flips – you just keep going!

There are 4 decorated sides in total.

Just Add Ink #340 – Just Add Gift Tags

Just Add Ink Design Team

What a well-timed challenge it is for Just Add Ink this week – “Just Add Tags“.

It’s been all about the gift tags this week in my house as I finish off gifts for teachers, coaches and other special ‘helpers’ in our life.

It’s also been a good chance to give some of my new products a test drive.

This month, demonstrators are pre-ordering their favourite products from the upcoming Occasions & Sale-A-Bration catalogues (released 4th Jan 2017).

Like this cute “Oh So Succulent stamp set” – that’s the perfect pairing for the “Helping Me Grow stamp set” from the Annual Catalogue.

How gorgeous are these succulents from The Fairy Gardener???

The handle die from the Everyday Jars Framelits set makes the perfect succulent plant pot!

I’ve only just added the Cheerful Tags Framelits to my collection – and I’m glad I did.

They are a great size and I love the fold over design.  They fit beautifully into the label stakes I bought from Bunnings!!!

Not all awesome craft supplies come from a craft store!


My gift tag project didn’t stop there – I had a happy coincidence with the jars I bought from Kmart to package some yummy Margaret River Chocolate Company chocolate pastelles for more presents this season.

The label stakes fit through the hole in the top where the straw was!!!

Don’t you just love it when craft projects come together.

That’s a win!!!

Do you spy another new product?

That’s right – we’re getting dragonfly dies and stamps!!!  I know these are going to be a hit – they are already one of my pre-order favourites!

Once everything was tagged, it was time to bag it all up ready for gift giving.

Luckily, Stampin’ Up! has an awesome range of cello bags.

The succulents were  a perfect fit in 6″ x 17″ Gusseted Cellophane Bags from the Holiday Catalogue and the chocolates are nice & cozy in some retired 4″ x 10″ cello bags I still have.

It’s nice to be able to give super cute gifts this season!!!

Which kind of gift would you prefer?  Chocolate or plant???

I’ll take both, thanks!!!

Please join us at Just Add Ink for the challenge to add a tag.  It can be a tag on a gift, a set of tags, a tag on a card – or your own creative interpration of adding a tag!!!  Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
