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???

Colour INKspiration #12

Can you believe we’re about to enter the second half of the year on the weekend???

We had the winter solstice last week and I’m looking forward to gradually seeing long days.

Unfortunately I think there’s lot of cold weather ahead, but before we can blink, it’ll be summer again and we’ll be close to welcoming in 2018!!!

Today for Colour INKspiration we’ve got a wintery combination inspired by beautiful photo full of wool (or yarn as you might refer to it in other parts of the world).

No automatic alt text available.

There are 8 colours to choose from  – and we’re asking you to include at least 4 from the list…

Whisper White, Night of Navy, Elegant Eggplant, Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo, Dapper Denim, Smoky Slate & Peekaboo Peach.

As well as a challenge to use these rich tones (I naturally prefer ‘pretty’ or ‘bright’), I challenged myself for CI#12 to use items that I ordered from the new catalogue but that had not yet been touched.

Yes… sign of a true addict!

The first product I pulled out was the Just Add Color Specialty DSP.  This wasn’t initially on my list, but after seeing it ‘in person’ while cutting it up for my paper share I decided I {had to own it}.

This paper created the focal point for my cards – and the challenge colours inspired the rest!

Each card uses a different combination of the colours above, but across all 3 cards I’ve used all 8 colours.

All the images you see in these cards have been cut from the DSP – no stamping for the main images.  It’s such a great way to add diversity to your projects.

The sentiments are from another product that I couldn’t wait to own, but have yet to break out – the In The City stamp set, available for purchase with hostess rewards.

Did you spy the embossing folders??? I was so excited to have these patterns in the new catalogue. The cards each feature a new & different 3D Dynamic Embossing Folder – Ruffled, Pinewood Planks & Layered Leaves.

My cards didn’t look quite finished, so I used one more new product – a bit of bling!  Although not technically ‘new’, rather reconfigured, the Pearl Basic Jewels have had a makeover.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the Just Add Color DSP, Dynamic Embossing Folders and In The City stamp set in action.

And maybe even found another ‘must have’ like me.  Every time I think I have what I need (for now), someone shares an amazing creation that makes the wishlist even longer!

If you’re in the need for more temptation – or just love to see wonderful creativity – then click the next button below to be transported across the country to the lovely Tanya Bell on the Sunshine Coast!

If these colours make you warm & cosy and feel like crafting, then we’d love to see you over on our Colour INKspiration Challenges Facebook page where you can see the creations the colour combination has inspired the members to create and share yours.

Stay warm (or cool if you’re north of here!).
