Mediterranean Moments Colouring Cards

Tomorrow Kristel & I will be at the Old Coast Markets.


As usual I’ve left everything til the deadline!  So, over the past couple of days, I’ve been creating some new treats for our handmade table of paper love!

My colouring cards were a hit last year, so it was time for a freshen up of the stock!

These Mediterranean Moment cards are for the grown ups!!!

Mixed with Moroccan DSP, they will be so much fun for the recipient to put their own touch on!

And they are so easy!  The hardest part was choosing just 3 pencil colours for each picture!!!

And the last one – there’s 4 images in the Mediterranean Moments stamp set, all equally as beautiful, though I do love the Vespa!

Which card would you choose?

Do you love the idea of sending someone a card they can colour themselves – or is it cheating???

What other stamp sets would be great for a colouring card?

I’d love to hear your thoughts!  Leave me a comment!

Colour INKspiration #02

Wow – didn’t the first week of Colour INKspiration go off with a bang???

Thanks for joining us. If you haven’t yet and want to see what all the hype is about, click here to request to join us on the Facebook page.

Here’s some of the basic details about the challenge –

The Colour INKspiration Crew! consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.

Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop.

Then it’s over to you with a 12 day period for crafters to upload their own creations using the challenge colours.

If you have a blog, feel free to link back to it, but all entries will be via Facebook.  The design team will select 5 projects to be ‘design team picks’ and then the Facebook group will select an overall winner from this shortlist.


Challenge #2 is a mix of earthy greens & blues, a soft purple and the stark contrast of Whisper White.

I {LOVE} the inspiration picture and have stored this away to use this as photo inspiration in the future.

Actually, how beautiful would one look in real life – I’ll have to see if my fave succulent supplier The Fairy Gardener can make me something similiar.


For these colours, I wanted to try them with the new Big on Birthdays stamp set from the Occasions catalogue.

It’s a 12 piece set with large sentiments and awesome fonts!!!


This card breaks a few of my colour ‘rules’ (I never use Wisteria, “blue & green shouldn’t be seen”) – but that’s what colour challenges are all about!!!

Wisteria Wonder for the flowers, Mint Macaron for the leaves, white background & Soft Sky card base.

Once I’d finished the card, I decided it needed something to lift it – since the Wisteria is such a dark colour, especially in marker form.

So, I added Fine Tip Glue pen over all the flowers – creating a glossy finish.

It looks awesome & was the extra pizzazz the card needed!

What’s your tip for finishing touches?

Sometimes it’s the difference between a nice card and a gorgeous creation!
