Inspire.Create.Challenges #124 – Colour Challenge with The Art Gallery Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog today sharing with you my design team project for the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog!

Our challenge this time is to use this card sketch.

See the other design team creations HERE

I chose to work with the Art Gallery stamp set and coordinating dies.

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

The two-step stamping looks so pretty with the Real Red and Blushing Bride inks.

I had to add some iridescent rhinestones too!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

It was so tempting to go for something Christmassy with these colours but instead I chose to use the Sending Smiles Bundle.

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

I pulled Daffodil Delight in to the card layers too for something a little different.

The original sample is shown here with plain white layers….

Inspire.Create.Challenge #121 – Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone

Welcome to my blog! Today’s post is my design team project for the Inspire.Create.Challenge!

This time we have this amazing colour combination to work with!

You can see the other design team projects and participate in the challenge HERE

I created my card with the Framed Occasions stamp set, accented with the Flowers of Friendship.

There is a coordinating punch for these flowers which makes them a little easier to work with! You can of course fussy cut the flowers if you prefer.

Whilst there is no “green” in this combo, I thought I could get away with using the Pool Party and Bermuda Bay for the foliage. I think it worked out really well with the other colours.

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

I’ll confess Pale Papaya isn’t my favourite colour so I kept it as an accent to the sentiment and brought it through in the ribbon and card base.

This sample uses the Pool Party Sheer ribbon and the rhinestones were coloured in Poppy Parade.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

I was looking for some colour inspiration to make another version of this card design featuring the Alphabest Bundle.

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

The Dots and Spots die adds interest to the background.

Double embossing the letters gave them a super glossy look.

Welcome to my blog post today showcasing my Design Team project for the new Inspire.Create.Challenge.

This time we are using a colour challenge…

Stop by the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog to see all the Design Team projects and upload your entry. We’d love to see your creations.

I have chosen to work with Shaded Summer and Watercolour Shapes stamp sets.

The background was created with first, second and third generation stamping similar to a Bokeh effect.

The stamparatus helped to get a good solid black image by stamping it at least twice.

Using the Double Oval punch was perfect to accompany the layout.

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.
