Colour Inkspiration 66 #CI66

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.

Hello from Lou's page

This was my image that I found on pinterest! I love such bright vibrant colours...

Challenge accepted to use all these pretty colours...

This type of card is called a Dutch Fold Card and it is really easy to make. I adapted the instructions online that I saw to make this card out of A4 size cardstock.

I am really loving the Bloom and Grow Bundle and just by adding a couple of extra coloured leaves and flowers the image looks fuller on the black background of this card.

My class girls made this today too!

  • Stamps: Bloom & Grow
  • Ink: Memento Black, Gorgeous Grape and Mint Macaron
  • Card: Whisper White, Basic Black, Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch and Coastal Cabana
  • Tools: Layering Oval Dies and Budding Blooms Dies with a Die Cutting Machine as well as Mint Macaron, Lovely Lipstick, Poppy Parade and Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blends
  • Embellishments: Dimensional

  1. Great card. The black really pops. Thanks for the picture of the card open - I've never understood before how this fold works. It's impressive.

  2. You are rocking these fancy folds lately. I love this one. Gorgeous!

  3. So adorable Nic ... need to get back into some fancy folds myself and your card is the perfect inspiration to get me started.

  4. Awesome choice for these colours. Love the black behind the image. And how much fun with the fold!
