Colour INKspiration 41 #CI41

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 1900 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.

Hello from Julia's page

I thought I would do a bit of a CAS card this fortnight...
(what is CAS??? Clean and Simple)

Yes a simple card from me.
Sometimes I think that I think about cards and details way, way too much so I took a step back this fortnight and made something really plain.
There is a bit of shimmer on the black sentiment but it really doesn't show up that well in these pictures at all!

  • Stamps: Accented Blooms
  • Ink: Memento Black
  • Card: Whisper White, Real Red, Shaded Spruce & Pumpkin Pie
  • Tools:  1", 3/4", 1/2" circle Punches as well as the  and Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Pumpkin Pie light and Dark Stampin' Blends
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals & White Frost Shimmer Paint

Jump on over to Mel to check out what colours she used...


  1. Well that's just stunning. Lovely card Nicole- and I like the new look on the blog too.

  2. Such a cool way to use the blends with this super fun clean and simple spotlight! Totally awesome.

  3. I love this scattered spotlight technique Nicole, very clever. Gorgeous colouring xx

  4. I love a CAS creation, and the spotlight technique which I never do! Love your creation, Nicole. D xox
