Colour INKspiration #54

Hello!  It’s time for another Colour INKspiration challenge – possibly one of my favourites of all time.  Which is crazy – because it’s so simple.  Black & white plus a pop of colour.  But the simplicity is what makes it awesome.

No photo description available.

I can’t wait for you to see what the crew have come up with this week.

You may have hopped here from the gorgeous Anne Matasci.  Anne won Colour INKspiration #52 and joins us for this hope as our guest designer.  I just love her card – and I know she loves the theme as much as I do!

To join us and share your card for Colour INKspiration #54, find us on Facebook.  Click here to visit the group.

I could have made a million cards with this colour combination (if only time would allow), but sharing this sweet card made with a few items that will join the retirement hall of fame very soon.

The stamp set is from the Stampin’ Rewards section of the catalogue – Hand Delivered, the embossing folder is Petal Pair and the DSP is from the Brights stack.

My pop of colour is Bermuda Bay.  But like so many of the cards on this blog hop, you could sub in any pop of colour that was your favourite to change up the design.

Now that we’re using our fireplace to combat the cold weather, I’m experimenting with different locations to take photos of my cards. I love being back in the outdoors with all that natural light!

 


Next stop on the Colour INKspiration blog hop is my beautiful friend Nikki Spencer.

Thanks for hopping with us!

Fortune Telling Panda

If there’s a Pinterest favourite in this year’s Occasions catalogue, I think the Party Pandas are winning the race!

Being black & white, pandas are very versatile and blend in with any colour palette!!!

One of my Occasions Catalogue loves was the Fortunate To Know You stamp set….

With a Chinese heritage in common, these stamp sets are a match made for each other!

He’s delivering some good fortune birthday messages!

And although technically not actually a bamboo print, the Petal Passion DSP in it’s black & white glory is another wonderfully versatile product from the Occsaions catalogue!

Colour INKspiration #25

Hello & welcome to the first Colour INKspiration hop for 2018!

It’s a good one with fresh & summery colours – Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White & Night of Navy.Image may contain: plant, drink and nature

They say blue & green should never be seen, but this combo is dynamite!!!

I’ve used it to create a fresh & floral tropical birthday card using the toucan from the new Bird Banter stamp set.

This set was an all-attendee giveaway at the OnStage event in November 2017.  Like all great gifts, it was perfect for me – something awesome that I would have never have bought myself.  I wouldn’t normally add a bird set to my stash – but I love owning it!!!

Colour INKspiration #25 | kelly kent

I used lots of white in this card to keep it bright and used the Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist to add pops of colour.

As well as the Bird Banter stamp set, I used a couple of products from the Petal Passion Suite – one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders and the leafy die from the Petals & More Thinlits..  I love how well all the products coordinate, even between sets & suites!

Love using banners on your card?  This is so easy to make with your Classic Label Punch.

Punch your shape as usual, then feed back through the side of the punch to snip off banner edges.

Making a Banner using the Classic Label Punch | kelly kent

I carried through the theme to the inside and decorated using a couple of balloons and some colour themed washi tape.

It’s hard to photograph, but my clear Wink of Stella pen added some sparkle to the balloons & toucan.
