Teal, purple and lime green!

So what do you think of these colours together?

This was the new colour challenge over at Colour Inkspiration.
Elegant Eggplant, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist.

Had to get my thinking cap on for this one, but once I started, I loved the combo and made several cards - just entering one, which made it into the TOP 5!!

I was so pleased!

Here's what I made with this combination and the Top 5 entry is the last one:

Using a retired stamp set called Betsy's Blossoms for the flowers (I love it because it reminds me of fireworks exploding!) and the new Lovely Words thinlets, for the word FRIEND and the Lovely Inside and Out stamp set with the additional words.

I love blending and these colours went so well together.  It looks a little unfinished - that's because I stole the words "for a great" from the card and used it on the one above!!

I just got this set, Jar of love,  as a gift from Stampin' Up !  
I had had my eye on it for a while, so was very pleased to finally get it.
This one has 37 polymer stamps!  Most people use the flowers in the jars, but I tried something different.

This is what I used in my actual entry into the challenge.

The layered flowers are from the set .
I used them in a different way here and added a sentiment from a retired set that worked so nicely in the centre.
The people at Colour Inkspiration liked it enough to vote it into the Top 5!

Want to get your hands on the Jar of Love too, or any other products you've seen here, then click on my shop and put in your order.

Hope these inspired you to give it a try.

See what you come up with!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - CASEing Jessica Taylor

This week we are CASEing Jessica Taylor - number 118 globally!!!  Wow!!
Looking at her blog I can see why.  It is full of amazing information to help you get started, try new techniques and full of inspiration.
There was plenty to choose from to CASE  - I was spoilt for choice but I loved the look of this collection using a retired Sale-a-bration set.

I updated the look with the new Animal Outing set from the new catalogue (coming very soon!!!)

This set has some very cute animal images - the only one I didn't use was the Giraffe.

The Kangaroo has a little Koala in it's pouch - very cute and a nice tribute to us stampers down under!  I decided, as he had the little arm (?) sticking out, it was just right to hold a sign. I used the Petal passion paper as it has many black and white papers to choose from, and this reminded me of jungle vines.
The Rhino, not often thought as a cute, is just that, especially with the little bird perched on his horn.  The embossing folder reminded me of an…

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - Nadine Weiner

Blog hopping today with the Crazy Crafters and Nadine Weiner.
We had to CASE something from Nadines blog and WOW!  What a choice!
I think I have several designs, in reserve, to try at a later date.  
Check out her blog: And you will see just what I mean!
So the card I went with is this one:
I love the simplicity, and the black and white with a pop of colour.
Here's what I came up with........

I used Petal Passion DSP for the background.  There are a few black and white papers that I could have used from this pack. My pop of colour was Bermuda Bay - one of my favourites! - with Soft sky behind.

My "flowers" are from Eclectic Layers thinlits (they look a bit like broccolini!!). I left the top unattached to give a bit of dimension.
I popped them up on dimensionals and threaded the sentiment in behind. I mounted it on Bermuda Bay to tie it all together, leaving a slightly larger border - so I can see more of this yummy colour!!
Such a fresh looking card.

Colour INKspiration #29

Colour INKspiration has a new colour challenge every fortnight on a Wednesday evening.  I am always excited to see what combo is waiting for us, and then I get my thinking cap on!
I am particularly thrilled to be a guest in this Colour INKspiration #CI29 blog hop!

The challenge for #CI29 had a lovely rustic feel and I was instantly drawn to the lovely bouquet.

I started thinking woodland......cascading flowers....woodgrain.....texture... and surprisingly, it came to me pretty quickly what I wanted to do.
I pulled out the colours I needed and started to put it all together.

I used my layering circle framelits to cut a circle frame from the Wood Texture DSP with a Very Vanilla circle underneath for stamping my sentiment.
The flowers and leaves were cut using the Bouquet Bunch framelits.  I trimmed the bunches down to get the shapes I wanted and cut some individual ones to add here and there.

Added a bit of dimension by raising the circle frame up from the Very Vanilla base.

The final touch was …
