Colour INKspiration #06

Hello!  Welcome to our second Colour INKspiration for the month of March.

Thank you so much for all the wonderful entries we got for the first challenge for March – #05.  You can see them on our Colour INKspiration Facebook page.

Colour INKspiration #06 gives us a great combination of rich & fresh colours – Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calypso Coral & all things gold!

For me, I just couldn’t move away from the Middle Eastern luxury feel – which led me back to my favourite elephant!!!

He’s definitely around for the next 2 months – so I’m going to be making the most of him!

How cute is the gold touch on his caparison?  That was inspired by this super cute pink elephant card made by Robyn Cardon.

I carried through the colours to create a fun inside of the card too…

I love splatters and have quite a few stamp sets that work well to create that bottom left to top right splatter pattern!

We’d love for you to join us on the Facebook page to see what other stampers are creating with these colours & to share you own creation.

Speaking of amazing creations (because I know yours will be), please hop on to the gorgeous Lou Kitzelman and see hers.  This lady is a never ending bottle of talent!

Thanks for supporting Colour INKspiration.

We’ve been dazzled by your contributions & amazed by how many people keep joining the fun!

CASEing the Catty #120 Urban Underground

Hello!  Welcome to the CASEing the Catty Sunday blog hop.

You’re joining me & my demonstrator friends as we share projects we’ve created that are inspired by the photos within the pages of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

To “CASE” is to Copy & Share Everything.  Or Copy & Selectively Edit.  It’s a great way to make the most of your Stampin’ Up! catalogue!

We’re steadily making our way through the Occasions catalogue and today’s hop features the Urban Underground section of the catalogue & adjoining pages.

I love the Urban Underground suite!  One of my favourite colour combinations is yellow, white & black/gray.

This is the photo that caught my eye today…

Have close look at the card on the bottom right.

Did you know you can make a shaker pocket on a card using a cello bag?

How clever are the creative team at Stampin’ Up!???

It’s so easy to do.  Just measure your bag size, cut a piece of DSP or cardstock to fit, add your shaker pieces and seal!

You can then attach this to your card base and add all the embellishments you want.


The Urban Underground suite was designed to be blokey & masculine – and it’s great for that!!!

But, if you follow my blog, you will have seen some of my ‘girls like … too’ cards.

I thought this design would be perfect for that theme.

By changing up the tools to think & adding in traditional girly pink, this card goes from a sorry card to a tribute to a bestie!

Maybe one who has her own set of tools – because “girls like tools too”!

The loose screws & bolts in the cello bag move around as the card moves.

There’s not as much movement as a traditional shaker card – but enough to make it fun!

I decorated the inside of this card with more of the Build It Framelit die pieces.

How cool is the ruler?


This really is the easiest shaker card you’ll ever make.

So easy, that I whipped up another one in an ice cream theme.

The sprinkles punch (which has been gathering dust!) is perfect for the filling and goes great with the sentiment from the Cool Treats stamp set.

Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen, I added some swirly strawberry sauce to the ice cream.

Accidentally dropping it before it was dry added some extra texture!  I’m so impatient with waiting for things to dry!!!

The inside of this card was easy to decorate using the Tasty Treats Washi Tape.


Be sure to have a go at this style of shaker card.  You won’t believe how easy & mess free it is!!!

Please keep following the blog hop for more inspiring projects.

Next up is the gorgeous Rachel!

We’ve love for you to upload your own Urban Underground inspired creation to our Facebook page.  Join the fun!!!

Happy creating!
