Colour INKspiration 56 #CI56

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 2000 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.

Welcome from Kim's page

This challenge picture my gorgeous friend Monique found again this week.

At the moment I am still playing with Everything is Rosy still and I am loving the bundle.

These colours work perfectly with this colour combination although I am not a real Garden Green fan (or Green of any sort).
This stampset and dies will most definitely be staying in my stash to keep even when it has retired!

This card was so simple to make. Sometimes we really need to get back to basics in our card making.

I love the dimension that it gives when you cut off a small slice from the card front and use a small piece of DSP inside the card and overlap the flowers over the edge of the card.

  • Stamps: Everything Is Rosy
  • Ink: Garden Green, Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo, and Berry Burst
  • Card: Whisper White and Everything is Rosy DSP
  • Tools: Everything is Rosy Thinlits with the Bigshot 
  • Embellishments: Dimensionals

      Now off  to our Guest Designer Cazz Boylan


      1. WOW! What a fabulous edging, especially with the DSP peeping out.

      2. Beautiful fold! What a clever idea! How great to use this bundle this challenge, too!

      3. Love the symmetry of the floral sprays and the detailed edge with DSP is sooooooo pretty. What a lovely card.

      4. Such a pretty card Nic! I love the layout and all the detail. You are nailing this stamp set! Kelly x

      5. The DSP is such a great statement, Nicole. I love your layering of the flowers on your card front. Beautiful. D x

      6. Gorgeous, and I agree about the peekaboo DSP. A really sophisticated touch.
