Colour INKspiration Colour Challenge #CI04

This weeks Colour INKspiration Colour Challenge #CI04 is just that! Otherwise, it's not a Challenge, right? So here are the colours we are using...


I have used all 4 colours without introducing other colours ways. I don't particularly use 'Regals', and I am really happy with how my creation turned out. 

I have made an Easter card using the gorgeous 'Suite Sentiments' stampset from the Occasions Catalogue. Teaming the sentiment with sweet stamped & die-cut flowers from the 'Jar of Love' Bundle.

I stamped the flowers in 'Elegant Eggplant' and stamped off again - leaving the softer colour. The same with the 'Delighful Dijon' flowers. I coloured the centres with a 'Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker' and a little sweep of 'Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush' to the dried centre.

And did I mention the bow from the divine 'Crushed Curry Baker's Twine'? And how about the debossed 'Polka Dot' Embossed background? I couldn't leave out the 'Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies' or the 'Crushed Curry' scallop circle from the 'Layering Circles Framelits Dies'
So much detail overload, but sooooo lovely.

Global Design Project - 'Theme Challenge' #gdp075

Have you seen this weeks 'Theme Challenge' for the Global Design Project  #gdp075? It's delightful!


I have a few stampsets with 'Winged Creatures', however, I ended up using the Sale-a-Bration 'Inside the Lines DSP'...

I have spotlighted the beautiful dragonfly from one of the collections. 
I coloured the dragonfly and background  using my 'Watercolor Pencils' and a 'Blenderpen'.

The wings have a swish of 'Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush' for a bit of shimmer. So pretty in real life.

The sentiment is from 'Butterfly Basics' stampset. A little bit of 'Burlap Ribbon' and 'Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim' underneath add a little more colour & fun.

Thankyou for visiting today and have a wonderful weekend. D x

Global Design Project - 'Sketch Challenge' #gdp074

I love a Sketch Challenge! And how lovely is this one?
This weeks Global Design Project #gdp074

I didn't have the opportunity to make my creation in time for Valentine's Day, but it's perfect for an Anniversary card or an everyday, anytime 'I love you' card...


Using my favourite 'Crumb Cake' cardstock as the base, I built my banner from the 'Tags & Labels Framelits Dies'.

The loveliest of embellishments; the patterned wooden heart from the 'Sending Love Embellishments' & coordinating 'Sending Love Glassine Sheets'. The divine 'Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies', some 'Gold Glimmer Paper' and 'Linen Thread'.

How to make the embossed heart background using the 
Rub an 'Embossing Buddy' over the cardstock prior to embossing.
Brayer the raised hearts within the TIEF with the 'Versamark Pad', and place the 'Whisper White' cardstock into the folder. 
Press onto the folder using your hand to imprint the Versamark onto the cardstock, not necessarily making an impression of the hearts.
Cover the hearts with 'Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder' and melt the powder with the 'Heat Tool'.

Thankyou for visiting. See you next week.
