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.

Another Colour Challenge with the Lots of Heart Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I couldn’t resist this colour challenge…. Any excuse to use my favourite colour!

  • Bermuda Bay
  • Crumb Cake
  • Sahara Sand
  • Basic Black

I pulled out the Lots of Heart stamp set and coordinating dies to make my card.

This stamp set is retiring at the end of the month and currently still available at half price!

Mixing up the colours worked well too. You might even stretch to give this card to a guy … Perhaps exchanging the Bermuda Bay for Night of Navy or Misty Moonlight

I love the pop of colour with this arrangement. I think this would work with a variety of colours.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
