Colour INKspiration #77

Hello and welcome to my blog post for Colour INKspiration #77!

Another gorgeous inspiration photo to inspire all of us. Wouldn't it be the most amazing thing to lie in a field of tulips looking up to a perfectly blue sky!

I chose this colour palette to create a card for Mothers Day. 

They are soft, beautiful and calming colours that work perfectly together.

  1. Start with a Soft Sea Foam card base measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half.
  2. Cut a piece of Garden Green Card stock to measure 10cm x 14.4cm for your matt layer.
  3. Cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock to measure 10cm x 14.4cm and use the Scripty 3D Embossing folder to create another matt layer. You will need to cut this down to measure 9.7cm 14.1cm after you have embossed it.Glue to the Garden Green Matt layer.
  4. Cut a Stitched Nested Label in Very Vanilla Card Stock. Stamp the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings in Garden Green Inkon the bottom right hand side of the Stitched Nested Label.
  5. Cut two of the background sprays from the Frosted Bouquet Dies out of Soft Sea Foam card stock.
  6. Stamp all the images on Very Vanilla card stock. I have used Old Olive for the leaves and stems and Seaside Spray for the flowers. I used the Stampartus to stamp the images that have two colours in them.
  7. Arrange the flowers and background spays on the Stitched Nested Label and secure with dimensionals and glue dots. You can choose what to pop up yourself.
  8. Cut a piece of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon to measure 25cm Colour with the Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blend. Cut 12cm off and wrap this around the Scripty layer and secure at the back with tear and tape. With the remaining ribbon tie a bow on the right hand side. Glue this layer to the card base.
  9. Pop the Stitched Label layer up on the card front using dimensionals.

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my post for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop!

We are in the final month of the Annual Catalogue and I will miss the beautiful In Colours that are retiring. In Particular Lovely Lipstick. It has been such a vibrant colour that I really have enjoyed using. The ladies that come to my classes will vouch for that.

I have loved the Best dressed Designer Series Paper since it came out in the Mini Catalogue in January. Such a beautiful selection of feminine DSP. I have made this card with both of those products and j=have let this gorgeous DSP do all the work. I have the instructions for this very easy to make card below and have included how I decorated inside the card. A great way to use your DSP and would work with most sentiments and labels.

  1. Start with a Lovely Lipstick card base measuring 10.5cm x 29.8cm scored and folded in half
  2. Cut another piece of Lovely Lipstick card stock to measure 14.4cm x 10cm.
  3. Cut a piece of the floral DSP to 14.1cm x 9.7cm and glue to the Lovely Lipstick matt layer and then to the Lovely Lipstick card base.
  4. Stamp the sentiment from So Sentimental in Lovely Lipstick ink.
  5. Die cut this sentiment with the label from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
  6. Cut three pieces of Whisper White Crinkled Seam  Binding Ribbon to measure 12cm each. Colour this ribbon with the dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blend.
  7. Lay two pieces of ribbon together across the top half of the DSP layer and adhere to the card base with Tear and Tape.
  8. Place dimensionals behind the sentiment and pop the sentiment uo on the top of the ribbon. Cut the edges of the ribbon so that they do not hang over the edge of the card.
  9. Cur a piece of Whisper White Card stock to measure 10cm x 14.4 cm. 
  10. Cut a piece of the DSP to 10cm x 6cm and glue to the bottom of the Whisper White piece of card stock.
  11. Lay the last piece of ribbon over the top of the DSP and secure at the back with Tear and Tape.
  12. Adhere to the centre of the card with glue.

I hope you have enjoyed my quick and easy card for this months blog hop.

Make sure you purchase those retiring items before they are gone forever.

Hope you are enjoying being creative at the moment. It is always a good way to relax and unwind.
