Colour INKspiration Challenge #7

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is for the newest colour challenge and at Colour INKspiration Challenge.

Colour INKspiration is found on Facebook – we would love it if you could play along.  Link up a project to our Facebook page.  You have two weeks create a project. I can’t wait to see what you create with this very pretty colour combo below:

I’ve been away on our yearly holiday for the past 10 days and made this card while I was away.  I try and fit as many Stampin’ Up! products as I can into the boat to take along, but when it comes down to making a card, I always find I never have exactly what I need.  When all else fails, Penned and Painted is my fallback stamp set.  For some extra interest I added some pink accents from Oh So Succulent and some leaves from Picture Perfect – quite a combination of sets!

Here’s my card:

The next hop along the way is the wonderfully talented (and fellow Melbournian) Rachel Palmieri.  You’re going to love Rachel’s project as much as I do!

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week is a colour challenge. Take a look at the pretty colours we have for you:

I’ve gone with a feminine floral card.  The flower I’ve used is from Stampin’ Up!s Penned and Painted.  I watercoloured my flower using Flirty Flamingo and added a touch of Tempting Turquoise.

Here’s my card:

I love everything about this sketch.  I had lots of plans to create a masculine card, but somehow I’ve ended up with another floral card.  Oh well – I find that I need more feminine floral cards anyway.

Here’s my card:

Just Add Ink #344

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week the challenge is to create a project using the following inspiration pic – a pic that was suggested by Kim.

I’ve taken inspiration from the pool and used Pool Party as the main colour on my card.  I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Penned and Painted and have given my Watercolor Pencils another run.

Here’s my card:

I’ve been waiting for Stampin’ Up’s Watercolor Pencils and they finally arrived.  I love the detail in this flower from Penned and Painted, and even though it comes with it’s own water-colour type stamp, I decided to play with my new pencils.  And I LOVE them – they are so easy to use!  The sentiment I’ve used is from Big on Birthdays and the DSP I’ve used is Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I have almost used a whole pack of this DSP already!

Oh I love this sketch! I made my card in no time! It helped that I already had these flowers cuts out that I had discarded from another project.

Freshly Made Sketches #261

Hey Everyone

I’ve scheduled this post as I am attending Stampin’ Up!s 2016 Live On-Stage Event in Brisbane! Events like these are a great way to catch up with all the lovely friends I have made on-line.  It’s also a good opportunity to see and get my hands on products that will be released in upcoming catalogues.

 

Now on to my card! I created this card for our newest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  The super talented Cindy Hall is our sketch designer – here’s her cool sketch:
