Colour INKspiration 27 #CI27


What is Colour INKspiraton? – a Facebook based bi-monthly colour challenge.
Anyone with Facebook can join in.  You don’t need a blog and you don’t need to be a demonstrator.
I have joined in these challenges and love them as Colour challenges for me are actually a real challenge.
 Click here to join the Facebook page which now has over 1750 members and see what it’s all about.

Here’s some of the basic details about the challenge –
The Colour INKspiration Crew! consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop.
Then you have a 12 day period to upload your own creations using the colours provided.
If you have a blog, feel free to link back to it, but all entries will be via Facebook.  The design team will select 5 projects to be ‘design team picks’ and then the Facebook group will select an overall winner from this shortlist.

My gorgeous friend who I have been lucky enough to meet through this wonderful hobby of mine
Renae Crosby has a lovely hubby Matt.
Matt (or Matty) loves to set a challenge with Renae's craft supplies.
It all came about when Renae was feeling she had lost her mojo.
Matt grabbed a few of her Stampin' Up! supplies and plonked them in front of her and that is how Matt's Challenge was born.

Here is the second challenge



We have to make a card using all of the items that Matt has picked plus we can add to it.
* Neutral Cardstock (as many colours as you want)
* Something Metallic
* A Flower punch, die cut or stamp
* String or Thread


Here is what I came up with



This is a really shimmery card in real life.
It will be going to someone very special.... and no it actually isn't my hubby!!


  • Stamps: The sentiment from Jar of Love
  • Ink: Memento Black
  • Card: Crumb Cake, Basic Black and Copper Foil 
  • Tools: Petals and More thinlits, Stitched Shape Framelits, Celebrate You thinlits (saleabration) & Scattered Sequins Thick Embossing Folder with the Bigshot,
