Welcome to the INKspired blog hop, challenge 101 and Teneale is mixing it up by giving us our first colour challenge. Our colour challenge is a little different to most, we have been given 4 colours and are able to decide what colours of that we wish to use. The colours for this round are Rococo Rose, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and Night of Navy.
I decided to use the first three colours, this one was the first time playing with Rococo Rose which is one of the new In-colours and I love it. That is not really a shocker to anyone who knows me because I love anything pink. I used Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set for the background and even the greeting.
I have used my goto die, the Stitched Labels Dies. I just adore the detail around the edge. Now, look behind that layer and check out my triple layers of ribbon! I am going all out on this card and I have used Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen, Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile and Line Thread.
Inside the card, I have simply stamped the largest flower along the bottom.
Next up is Jo Wilson, who is off travelling the world and made sure her card for the challenge was made before she left.
Hi again, I really appreciate you coming to check out this week’s challenge and i have to say they certainly go very quickly and if your landed on here, you have most likely come from Teneale Williams- and this is our fifth Blog Hop for the INKspired Sketch Blog Hop Team. I know you will have enjoyed her card as much as we do.
Our challenge was to produce a card using the design below.
Here is my spin on the challenge that I loved doing, hope you do also.
I choose to use the Sweetbriar Rose single stamp set, colouring the stem of flowers with Pumpkin Pie Blendabilies along with Old Olive. This was then nestled into an oval shape, which I had cut using my oval framelits and using my diagonal embossing folder created a texture on the page, I then used Daffodil delight ribbon to form the panel at the bottom and using my diamonials attached to a rectangle of Whisper White Cardstock before attaching to Old Olive card base.
I then stamped part of the stamp set on the inside and again coloured with my blendablities. Just loving them, takes me back to when I went to school………………..lol
Colouring in, takes me back to my childhood memories and how I had wanted to be a teacher. Maybe now I am actually fulfilling ambition to do that by teaching cardmaking. You never know.
Hope you enjoyed this week’s card and get some inspiration to start creating one just the same.
