Colour INKspiration #59

It’s time for another Colour INKspiration hop.  Chosen by Bronwyn Eastley – this colour combination is just divine!  Soft, dreamy and oh-so-pretty.

No photo description available.

I’ve seen a sneak peak of some of the cards on this hop and you’re going to love them all.  So much variety from florals to masculine to pretty kitties!

We’re joined today by guest designer Denise Buetler.  Denise won challenge #57 and accepted our invitation to join us for this hop.  You can see her project by clicking here or keep hopping through all the projects til you get to her gorgeous card.


As with many the Colour INKspiration Crew, there was something about these colours that was reminiscent of the water.  I’ve used the new Seaside Notions stamp set to create another sympathy card.  Sadly it’s the week for it.

The background is the Stitched Lace die – I just can’t get enough of this die.  It’s adds such elegance to the card.  This time I’ve cut it using the lace die (see my previous post for tips on getting a great cut) and then cut it to card front size using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die.  If you have these dies, you’ll know the proportions are a little different our card sizes, so I’ve cut the card down to 4-1/8″ wide by 5-1/2″ long (11″ before scoring and folding in half).Seaside Notions | kelly kent

I’ve layered a Subtle embossed mat in Smoky Slate and a frame made using the Stitched Rectangle Dies in Seaside Spray.  I am loving this new In Color – so serene!!!  The seahorse is stamped in Seaside Spray and fussy cut, layering it over the ‘thinking of you’ sentiment.  Finished off with a couple of silver Metallic Pearls.

I’ve carried the theme through to the inside of the card and added some stamped shells and a sand dollar on another stitched rectangle background with a strip of Seaside Spray DSP.

I loved these colours together, but if I’m honest, using Very Vanilla was a huge challenge for me!!!  I guess I’m just a Whisper White girl at heart!


We’d love for you to join the challenge by sharing your creation made with these colours in our Facebook group.  Click here to visit.

Next up on the hop is my gorgeous friend Leonie Stuart and a beautifully delicate card.

Thanks for visiting!

Stamp Review Crew | Piece of Cake

Thanks for joining the Stamp Review Crew hop today as we share with you our projects using the Piece of Cake stamp set.  Tour the world for some new ideas for this gorgeous set (and also the coordinating punch – Cake Builder).

I’ve used this hop as a chance to freshen up my use of this stamp set by mixing it with the new Stitched Lace Die.

It was also a chance to make a wedding card with this set.  I’ve mostly used this for a birthday theme – but I just love the font & styling of the “Mr & Mrs” so when planning for this hop, I knew that’s the type of card I wanted to make!.Which was actually perfect, because the Stitched Lace Die just screams wedding!!!

My colour palette for this card is Whisper White, Seaside Spray (one of the new In Colors) and Night of Navy.  Add in silver foil for the cake stand and a touch of Rococo Rose & Pretty Peacock for the cake flowers and we have a soft & pretty wedding card.

The Stitched Lace Die is a wonderful background for the cake.  The bottom piece (Whisper White)  is 5-5/10″ x 3-7/8″.  I’ve then cut a piece of Seaside Spray at 4-1/4″ x 2-3/4..  Once cut, I lined it up with the pattern on the Whisper White piece and trimmed the excess from the top & bottom.  I love the two tone effect when lined up seamlessly.
