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!

The bold & bright colours of this challenge reminded me of spring, so although the weather here is cold and wet (hello winter!), my craft room can be as warm and summery as I like.  So with the challenge colours in mind, I’ve stamped some pretty butterflies using the new Butterfly Wishes stamp set and lined them up in rows.

This style of card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies as a frame reminds me of butterflies on display in a museum.  I’ve make them fly as much as I can by adhering in the middle of the body and flicking up the wings….

But I’d like to try a card like this again with flying butterflies!  I’ll keep it on my to-do list for another challenge!

For the sentiment in the middle of the card, I’ve masked the other words on the ‘celebrate’ stamp with masking tape and inked it up with Versamark and heat embossed in white.  I then cut it using the Classic Label punch.  To create the banner, I used the end of the same punch.  I love when products are so versatile!
