Colour INKspiration #13

Hello! And welcome to Colour INKspiration #13!

Do you love or hate the number 13?  I’m a fan!!!!

The first challenge for July features a gorgeous quartet of bright & fun colours – Sweet Sugarplum, Wild Wasabi, Lemon Lime Twist & Fresh Fig.

Image may contain: plant, flower and nature

You may like to take inspiration from the photo as well, but you can go wherever these challenge colours take you.

Don’t forget that you can add in any neutrals or metallics to the palette too – which opens up some great variety.

I’ve added silver/gray to mine to create yet another creation using the “Little One” stamp set.  I just love that teepee!!!

This concept came from the idea of a cute baby blanket covered in teepees.  The colours from this challenge were perfect for a bright & fun look.

I double embossed the cardstock with the Ruffled folder (embossed once, rotated and then embossed again) after it was stamped & coloured, to give it a ‘blanket look’.

Watercoloring the teepees softened the colours to ‘baby tone’.

A bit of sequin & glitter dot bling finished the sentiment panel…

Do you like the ‘get your swaddle on’ sentiment?

I think it’s a bit of a divider – I’m still sitting on the fence.  Might be a ‘for the right Mum/baby’ type saying.


The hop showcasing these gorgeous colours continues on now to the wonderful Monique Fielder

You can join in too by uploading your creation using the challenge colours (and any neutrals and/or metallics) over on our Colour INKspiration Challenges Facebook page.

If you don’t have Facebook, email me your creation and I’ll share it for you!.

I hope you have a wonderful end to your week!

If you’re still on school holidays like me, I’m hoping for fine weather, lazy mornings and children who don’t whine!

I don’t ask for much, do I???

Teepee Love!

Do you remember the baby teepee card I made back in May when I was eagerly awaiting being able to order all the stamps on my new catalogue wishlist?

Here it is…

Now that I’ve added the oh-so-cute teepee stamp set – Little One – to my collection, I made the card again using the stamp set.

I can’t decide which version I like better!!!  I just think teepees are the cutest baby motif!


I also made a Rich Razzleberry version in this design….

These cards were my swaps for our recent team meeting.

{PS, if you are trying to place the cute Tranquil Tide washi tape, I stole it from my Soft Sayings kit!}

This stamp set is getting quite a work out – pop back in tomorrow to see another Little One creation for my Colour INKspiration design team card.

So many baby cards – but I just couldn’t resist!

CASEing the Catty #132 – Birthdays

Hello Sunday!

It’s been a crazy, amazing & wonderful week for me, starting with a long weekend Monday and finishing this weekend with my 2017 Catalogue Launch Event.

For the first time, I tackled a retreat style event with 17 wonderful stamping friends.  It took hard work, the help of my stamping army and a few late nights, but it all came together to create a fabulous day of fun, creativity and friendships.  We talked about getting a group shot, but didn’t quite get around to it – too much stamping to do!

Here’s an action picture…

2017 Annual Catalogue Launch Event | kelly kent

The ladies had a great time playing with new & old favourites from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

I was itching to use one of my top 10 purchases – Little One stamp set, a sweet baby set with an oh-so-cute teepee!

But… the theme this week at CASEing the Catty is Birthdays!  Did you love Mel’s beautiful 50th birthday project?

No automatic alt text available.

Luckily for me, the inspiration for CASEing the Catty only has to come from these pages.  The theme can be anything you like!

So, I used this beautiful sample from the catalogue to inspire my colour choice, design features & layout.

This is my Little One baby card…

Of course I had to add some Kelly touches, so it all sits over some vellum and I’ve white embossed the sentiment.

The inside has a touch of simple decoration – some of the new washi tape.  I was so excited to see it come in solid colours this year, in packs of the same tone!
