Ink Stamp Share – September Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog this afternoon… Today I’m hopping with a whole host of crafters from all over the world.

Please be sure to pay them all a visit and leave some encouraging comments!

How can I resist a colour challenge! The hop this month is challenging creators to use this gorgeous palette!

I decided to work with florals. One of favourite bundles this year is Flowers of Friendship… Perfect for this challenge.

The subtle Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam provided a soft back drop to the deeper colours I used as the focal point of the card.

Wink of Stella glitter and basic rhinestones add some sparkle too.

This was my original sample as another idea of how these colours can be used together.

I’ve made a simple set of Halloween greeting cards using the Cute Halloween designer series paper.

The monochromatic design allows some freedom to add some fun colours as accents.

In this case I’ve used Highland Heather to stamp the greeting and little bats from the Little Delights Stamp Set.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The Highland Heather ribbon adds texture and helps tie together the overall design.

I made these samples with the other multi coloured side to the papers.

This time I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive and used the black and white gingham ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I have chosen to work with the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper. This is one of the fabulous papers you can earn during Sale-a-bration! This coordinates with the Hand Penned Petals Suite in the Annual Catalogue too!

I put this with the Biggest Wish stamp set which is great versatile set for beginner cardmakers!

You can see how I made these cards in my video tutorial….

I picked out three different ribbons to compliment the cards. Of course you don’t NEED to use all three, but this shows you some options. I kept it simple by tying knots rather than bows.

Whilst the black and white, monochromatic look suits the paper, just look what happens when you introduce a coloured card base!

This is Melon Mambo….

And these are Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green. All are in the Brights colour family.

Here are the cards I make in my video ….

My project uses the Elegantly Said designer series paper with the Nothings Better Than stamp set and coordinating dies.

It took me some time to decide on how to tackle this theme but overall I was happy with the outcome.

I have layered the designer series paper with the fabulous foil which adds some real luxury to the card. It is for a special occasion after all.

The colouring used both the stamp set and Stampin’ Blends markers.

You can see how I made the card in my video tutorial….

I didn’t need the square piece that I used on the original sample.
