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 adding some texture with one of the Petal Pair Embossing folders.

Of course, nothing is finished unless it has a little bling to help it sparkle!







I love how it turned out.  Why don't you try this combo and see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head on over to Monique Fielder next.

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 with Patsy Waggoner

This week we are CASEing Patsy Waggoner.
We had to pick a card of hers and Copy and Selectively Edit it. 
It was such a joy to look through her blog (http://www.stampstodiefor.com/patstamps/) and Pinterest page - I was left with plenty of choices.
I picked this one:


I was taken by the colours initially and the white space.
I wanted to make a card with the same use of white space and colours that popped.

Here's what I did with this in mind......


I used the new First Frost from the upcoming Holiday catalogue. This set is gorgeous! Instead of diecuts tucked behind the white panel I stamped in Versamark. The contrast between the colours Blueberry Bushel and Mango Melody really pop.

I love the watercolour look of the stamps.  The sentiment is from the Friendly Expression stamp set - don't you love that font! 
I added a sprig die cut from vellum to add some texture.

You can try this for yourself in any number of colour combination.
You can use any stamps you have on hand, or you can get the new F…

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Linda Cullen

We are blog hopping with Linda Cullen today!! 
I found plenty of inspiration over at her blog - https://www.craftystampin.com/blog/

She has so many posts of beautiful projects I found it hard to just stick to one to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit)! So I did three!!!

The first one I saw, the colours just popped from the card. 



I changed up the colours, using two of the new colours - Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green and the base is Sea Foam.  The embossing folder I used was Lovely Floral.  This is a dynamic folder, meaning it makes a nice deep impression and can be used Emboss or Deboss (upside down) - this is how I used it.

I used the Botanical Bliss stamp set for the flowers, vines and sentiment which were all heat embossed in white.

I loved all the elements in this next card - the patterned paper, the embossing and the matching stamps.



I turned mine 90 degrees and, even though I was all ready to add an emboss image, I ended up leaving it off.  It could do with a couple of Glitter enam…
