Colour INKspiration 27 – Petal Palette

Hi everyone.

Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge Number 27!

Colour INKspiration happens every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.  The design team are given a colour swatch to create their projects with and then we put together a hop to inspire you all to get creating!

You can join in the challenges.  Just create your project using the given colour palette (neutrals and metallics are allowed) and then upload a picture on to our Facebook Group HERE.

This week we are playing with hues of blue and pink…

Your colour selection is – Powder Pink; Pool Party; Melon Mambo and Island Indigo.

Melon Mambo and Island Indigo are fairly strong colours, so I was trying to work out how to incorporate them into a design without overpowering the softer colours.  An idea sprung to mind and I began playing.  I used our gorgeous new Petal Palette Bundle for my design.  Ever since I have received it I haven’t been able to stop playing.  It’s a beautiful set that can have a vintage or modern feel depending on your design.

I decided I wanted to keep this card quite subtle, so I included lots of white space, and embossed my images with White Embossing Powder before watercoloring them.  I used Shimmery White Cardstock for the images that I have coloured as it holds watercolouring much better than Whisper White.  We are allowed to incorporate neutrals into our designs, so I added touches of Sahara Sand for the stamped leaves in the background and to watercolour the embossed leaves.  I then simply trimmed my flower image to allow me to have the individual designs.  A few gentle curls of our Whisper White Organza Ribbon, a flick of tombow mixed with water and a sprinkle of Gold Glitter and the card was complete!

I haven’t popped a sentiment on this card yet as I think it could be used for multiple purposes – so I will add it when I know where its going!

I have a special this month where you can get a tutorial and card kit free when you purchase the Petal Palette Bundle this month.  You can find out more HERE.

I hope you enjoyed my project today.  Make sure you take the entire hop and see all the lovely creations.

Next up is Denita 🙂

Happy Crafting everyone!

CTC 164 – Occasions Kits with Petal Palette

Hi everyone! Welcome to CTC 164 where this week we are CASEing the Occasions Kits of the Occasions Catalogue, on pages 15 – 17.

The kit you see pictured here is the Lots of Happy Card Kit!  I absolutely love this kit and have already had a class using it, which the participants loved as well!  The best bit about this prepackaged kit is that it is literally a class ready to go!

It has absolutely everything you need to create your projects, other than snail adhesive – It includes the stamp set, an ink spot, all card bases, envelopes, embellishments, ribbons, pencils and a basic stamp block to get you started creating right away!  They are great for beginners, those with limited supplies, or to take away when travelling! You can even get a refill of this one!  I cannot recommend these kits highly enough!

For today’s challenge however, I created my own little kit using the cards on the bottom of page 17 as a basis, using the Petal Palette Bundle.

I loved how bright and fun these cards were.  I started by creating with the Lemon Lime Twist Card.

Even though it’s a bit hard to see, I substituted the Happy Birthday Sentiment on the original card for the spotted stamp in the Petal Palette Stamp Set.  To create the flowers I stamped the image one a piece each of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Soft Sky Card stock.  I used the Lemon Lime twist as my base piece, and then fussy cut the flowers in the other colours, before layering them on to the base piece.

My second card was the Berry Burst Card.  I stamped one of the smaller flower images on the card base, so it was similar to the original.   For this card I lightly watercolored my images with an aqua painter, which I kept quite dry as I was using regular Whisper White Cardstock.

The third card is just a little 4″ x 4″ card.  I changed the elements for this one to more suit my stamp set – I mean – I hadn’t even inked up that sweet little bird yet!  Even those this stamp set has coordinating framelits, I still fussy cut one of the flowers, as the framelit left a lot of white space in the middle that didn’t look right on this layout. And, if you purchase the whole bundle for this suite you automatically qualify for a FREE Saleabration item! How good is that!

 

And that my friends, is my own little Occasions Kit with Petal Palette! I am so happy with how my little kit turned out that I am offering this card kit tutorial for Free with the purchase of this bundle from me, for the month of February!
