Monday Colour Challenge with the Tranquil Thoughts Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

This week’s colour challenge….

  • Garden Green
  • Mango Melody
  • Flirty Flamingo

It was so tempting to get out the Friendly Flamingo stamp set, instead I turned the the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set.

I’ve used this before for a challenge, but this time I am using some of the additional dies in the bundle too.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Adding the ink with a blending brush brings out the embossed detail from the die.

Here’s a close up of the original sample. Which is your favourite?

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Inspire.Create #064

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Today I am sharing a project that I have used as my entry for the Inspire.Create challenge.

This time it’s a colour challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

And this is what I created!

My choice of colour was Lovely Lipstick. I thought this would add some contrast to the otherwise neutral pallette.

The base card was prepared using Crumb Cake card stock. Layers of Night of Navy and White were cut with Stitched Rectangle dies.

I picked a bold sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set. This was cut with the coordinating die. Before sticking this down, I first added foliage images from the Pop of Petals stamp set and Crumb Cake ink.

Three flowers were stamped with Lovely Lipstick ink and cut with the coordinating punch.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Hello Everyone,

Today’s post is an entry for a new creativity challenge!

This is the card I have created….

I chose to work with the Honey Bee bundle and Golden Honey Designer Series Paper.

I love the coordination and the monochromatic style of the products.

The background is made with layers of DSP and Stitched Rectangles cut from vellum and Crushed Curry card stock.

The other elements were stamped and die cut. Colour was added to the bees and flowers with a marker.

Confetti!

Hello Everyone,

I have a lovely bright card to share today.

I picked out this cute paper as the background.

I cut a frame using the Stitched Rectangle dies and adhered this with mini dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink. This was also cut with a Stitched Rectangle die. This was positioned overhanging the frame.

Finally, some blooms were stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and punched out. An epoxy dot was coloured with a Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend marker and added to the centres before adding to the card with multipurpose glue.
