Global Design Project - Colour Challenge #gdp097


This week it's a Colour Challenge for the Global Design Project #gdp097
And the colours are just lovely.

It's not often I make a Sympathy card, but this week is one of those times.

I die-cut the floral flourish using the 'Flourish Thinlits Dies' from 'Watercolor Paper'. I then coloured the flowers, leaves & stems using 'Berry Burst' & 'Wild Wasabi' ink with an 'Aqua Painter'.  I used 'Shimmery White' cardstock for the top mat, and I added a light 'Crumb Cake' wash for the background.

 The ribbon has been folded in half using 'Tear & Tape Adhesive' to hold it in place, and secured with some 'Linen Thread'.

Thankyou for visiting my blog. It means a lot that you have come this far, and I hope to have inspired you too. 
Have a wonderful week. D x

Colour INKspiration Blog Hop #CI14

Hello. Welcome to my blog and to the 'Colour INKspiraiton Colour Challenge' #CI14 Blog Hop.
You may have hopped to me from Cathy - our Guest Designer for this Challenge.
There is a beautiful swatch waiting for you to play along; join the 'Colour INKspiration Challenges' facebook page to upload your creation.
It's that easy.



 Smoky Slate, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sky & Night of Navy.

I have made a 4" x 4" Note card & matchy-matchy Gift Bag. The 'A Little Wild' Bundle started it all for me with the cute 'Smoky Slate' elephant. 
The 'Gift Bag' was made using the awesome 'Gift Bag Punch Board' and with 'Naturally Eclectic DSP', tied with 'Soft Sky Classic Weave Ribbon' and a little swing tag.
*DSP: 10" x 6" for Medium size Gift Bag

I coloured some 'Whisper White Baker's Twine' with 'Rich Razzleberry Ink Refill' - such a fun mess!

I have been 'Razzleberried!'
Inked up fingers and thumbs from colouring the Baker's Twine.
And there are many more creations to see. Next up is my friend Kelly who has created something fabulous. Click on the 'Next Blog' button below to keep on hopping. Have a wonderful day. D x

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Naturally Eclectic Suite

Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop.
This fine Sunday we are showcasing the absolutely gorgeous 'Naturally Eclectic Suite'. This Suite is something you can't miss, because it is featured on the front cover of the Annual Catalogue and it's just so lovely!


Come and take a look at the 'Naturally Eclectic Suite' in action.

https://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryID=301012
This image is featured within the Annual Catalogue - isn't everything just divine?
The colours. The patterns. Oh, it's delightful!

First up is a shaker card, and matchy-matchy gift box. 
The shaker card has a gold diamond window from the 'Naturally Eclectic Card Overlays' pack. The gems were added; fussy cut from the 'Naturally Eclectic DSP'. And a handful of the 'Gold Mini Sequins' to add some bling within the window.
I have subtly watercoloured the 'Shimmery White' background.

How sweet is the Gift box? You can find the tutorial here.
I have wrapped the box with 'Emerald Envy Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon' and embellished with a tag using the diamond die-cut in 'Gold Foil'.

 I have created a floral frenzy atop another 'Naturally Eclectic Card Overlay' with golden leaves. Using the divine colours; 'Peekaboo Peach', 'Lemon Lime Twist' & 'Berry Burst' with 'Gold Foil' die-cut to create my card front.

And that 'Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon'! It's just so beautiful you really do need it in your ribbon stash.

Thankyou for taking the time to visit, and don't forget to keep on hopping to check out more 'Oh So Eclectic' lovliness. Next up is Kelly - who always has something fabulous to share, and all the blog links are posted below.
Have a wonderful Sunday. D x
