Colour INKspiration #69

Hello and welcome to my blog!

It is the final Colour INKspiration Challenge for 2019 
and isn't the inspiration photo below beautiful!

You may have come from Nikki Spencer's blog post! 

Make sure you hop around and see everyone's creation!

I was inspired by the wreath image to create a Christmas card with a difference with the challenge colours. I chose the First Frost Bundle to create my card and have used some new items from the mini catalogue that will begin next month. I cannot believe that 2020 is almost here. When I was young and heard "1999" by Prince 1999 then seemed like an eternity away then and here we are at the end of 2019!

I stamped all the images and used the Stamparatus to stamp the Gorgeous Grape and Mint Macaron flowers and stems. I did this using Stampin' Write Markers.  I coloured and stamped the stems first and then the Gorgeous Grape buds. An easy to achieve effect using the Stamparatus! I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape.  I then die cut the images and the label for the sentiment from the coordinating dies.

The card Base in Whisper White measures 21cm x 14.8cm scored and folded in half. I cut another piece of Whisper White to measure 10cm x 14.4cm and used the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing folder to get this stunning background. 

I then ran some of the new Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around and tied a bow on the left hand side of the card. I then positioned all the floral images and the sentiment and secured using dimensionals.

The Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder and Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon will be available from the 3rd of January. Please contact me if you would like a Catalogue. Don't forget that Sale a Bration begins in January 2020!
