Colour INKspiration #59

Hi there!

It is time for another Colour INKspiration Crew Blog Hop!

You may have come here from the amazingly talented Kelly Kent!

How gorgeous are the below images for our challenge this time. I love the wintery scenes.
We are using Seaside Spray, Smokey Slate, Very vanilla and Early Espresso for this fun challenge.

I have been enjoying using the gorgeous Bird Ballad Laser-cut cards over the past few weeks.
They are stunning and don't require a lot of work to make a beautiful card. They are the perfect thing to have in your stash to make a quick card.

I started by gluing a piece of Smokey Slate card stock to the back of the laser-cut front.

Next I stamped the bird from the Free as a Bird stamp set in Early Espresso on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I coloured it in with the Seaside Spray and Smokey Slate Stampin' Blends. I fussy cut this image out.

Using the Stitched Nested Label Dies to cut out a Very Vanilla and Smokey Slate label. I moved the larger die on the Smokey Slate back towards the centre of the die from the side to create a label that fit evenly around the sentiment layer. 

I stamped the Thank You from the Free as a Bird stamp set on the Very Vanilla label. Then glued the two labels together. Then gluing them to the front of the card. I also glued the Bird to the left side of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed reading how easily this came together. I love the simplicity of this card.

Product List


  1. This is a beautiful card, Leonie. I particularly love the tip on how to get an even border around the nested labels dies! Love the way you have coloured the bird too - isn't that blue just gorgeous!xx

  2. Aren't these lace cards the most gorgeous things? You've made up a beautiful example this week, very stylish.

  3. These cards are superb to have on hand for an impressive card. I saw the background as Seaside Spray when I first saw the card - optical illusion or else old eyes!

  4. How clever to use the vanilla laser cut cards!! This is just glorious! I love your colouring.

  5. This is so pretty Leonie! I think I might have to invest in some of those laser cut cards - you've sold me on them! Kelly x
