Colour INKspiration #102


Hello and welcome to my blog post for Colour INKspiration #102!

We have a lovely Australian image for our colour palette this challenge.  So pretty!
This image was chosen by lovely crew member Lou Kitzelman.

We welcome Deette Beynon as our guest designer this challenge. Make sure that you check out the crew and Deette's project on our Facebook page here.We would love you to join us for the challenges and you can do that by heading to our Facebook page and requesting to join the group there. Make sure you answer all the questions. You can join in the fun by submitting your projects for each challenge. You don't need a blog to participate either. It is a whole lot of fun to play along!

For this challenge I have created a simple card. You don't always have hours to spend creating. I made this card in less than 30 minutes and it would be perfect as a Birthday, Thanks, Sympathy, Thinking of You Or Wedding card. This card would suit most occasions. You could create it and leave the sentiment for later when you have an occasion.

  1. Start with a Smokey Slate card base measuring 21cm x 14,9cm scored and folded in half
  2. Cut another piece of Smokey Slate to measure 10.2cm x 14.5cm for a matt layer
  3. Cut a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 10cm x 14.3cm 
  4. In Basic Gray ink stamp the floral image in the top left hand corner of the Basic White piece of card stock twice. You may need to stamp the image again to fill in the gap in the top left corner if necessary.
  5. Stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray ink on the right hand side of the card
  6. Die cut the floral piece in Polished Pink card stock with the coordinating die and glue to the top left hand side of the card with a small amount of multipurpose glue
  7. Tie two 13cm lengths of White Twine around the centre of the card and secure at the back with Stampin' Seal+. Tie another piece of twine in a bow on the right hand side of the twine.
  8. Secure three of the Polished Pink In Colour Jewels to the front of the card
  9. Glue the Basic White layer to the 10.2cm x 14.5cm matt layer of Smokey Slate card stock
  10. Pop the front layers up on Dimensionals and the secure to the card base
