Colour INKspiration #20

Oh my – check out this fortnight’s colour swatch for the newest Colour INKspiration challenge!

It’s both glorious & terrifying all at the same time – which makes it the perfect challenge.

I would have never put these colours together (and also confess to almost never using Always Artichoke!).  There’s the option to add Wood Textures DSP for this challenge too.

The inspiration picture that the colours were selected from is divine!

My starting point for this card was a desperate need to release my cat punch from the plastic packaging!  I bought it with great anticipation, and have been loving all the ideas I’ve seen on Facebook, Pinterest & instagram!

It was time to have a play myself!!

I started by creating a cat silhouette using the optional Wood Textures DSP, and then added some flowers inspired by the challenge photo & colours, which gave me this cute card…

I haven’t added a sentiment yet – I think I’ll leave it off until I decide who to give it to.  Or, use it as an all occasions card!

I just love the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set & Bouquet Bunch Framelits for adding floral elements to cards.

And I’m not the only one!  Check out some of the other ways the crew used it on this blog hop plus some more amazing projects.

Colour INKspiration #18

Hello!  It’s time for another colour INKspiration challenge.

For this fortnight, we’re crafting with these colours colours (and this totally amazing inspiration pic)…

Image may contain: people sitting, plant, motorcycle, flower and outdoor

Pink, gray and neutrals – plus, any green of your choice.

This card was made for our newest design team member – Jackie Aitken.  Check out her first project with us – it’s sensational!

I used quite a few features of the inspiration picture to try something totally different for me – a busy card with lots of texture!!!

My green of choice was Pear Pizzazz for some touches of ‘greenery’ in my planter boxes.

I added Sweet Sugarplum ink to the embossing paste to make a cute pink brick wall.

Have you tried this?  It’s easy and fun to colour the embossing paste!

The floral shapes come from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits – it’s a great set!

And the butterfly is cut from the new Champagne Foil – so pretty!!!


This is a fabulous set of colours and the design team have an amazing range of projects to share with you!

You can continue the hop by visiting the delightful Lou Kitzelman and her cute pink project!

Don’t forget, you can add any green to the quartet – Powder Pink, Basic Gray, Sahara Sand & Sweet Sugarplum.

And any metallics!

Just Add Ink #364 – Inspiration

Hello!  Welcome to another Just Add Ink challenge.

I’m so excited to see what everyone does with this photo inspiration – chosen by me!!!

No automatic alt text available.

There’s so much to take from this gorgeous photo.

Have you noticed how ‘on trend’ copper & rose gold are at the moment?

And crafters love flowers!!!

I love the subtle brick texture in the background & the wood table.

Oh my!!!  Lots of potential this week!

To join us, and see what the other design team members have made, visit the Just Add Ink blog.

This is my card, using all the elements I mentioned above…

I was so excited to use another of my new catalogue purchase – the Beautiful Bouquet bundle!

Beautiful flowers plus an amazing number of practical sentiments!!!

My posy is loaded with pretty, oversized yellow flowers – which is a bit bolder than the inspiration picture!

{But it’s my picture and I can stamp what I want to!}

And I added in the copper tones for the ribbon & posy wrapping.

Did you spy the Wood Textures DSP making another appearance???  So many wood colours & options in this awesome DSP stack.

And I remembered to stamp / emboss directly onto the DSP! (I so often forget this!)

Please join us this week over at the Just Add Ink blog.

I’d love to see your interpretation of the photo into a card, scrapbook page or 3D project!
