Colour INKspiration Challenge #114 feat. Slim Card Dies



Hello crafty friends!  And thanks for popping in!

Welcome to our very first Colour INKspiration Challenge for 2022.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and have recharged your batteries for another year of fabulous creating.   The photo for this challenge was picked by fellow Crew Member,  Lou Kitzelman and shows off the amazing beach of Mooloolaba in Queensland.  It also happens to be part of Lou's neighbourhood!

 The card I'm sharing with you today features the new Slim Dies which are available in the recently released January-June Mini Catalogue.  The best part is, if you purchase this die set or even go as far as grabbing the co-ordinating Stamp Set and getting a 10% discount on the Bundle, you are also eligible for a FREE item from our Sale-A-Bration brochure.  The stamp set I have used for my card also happens to be part of a Sale-A-Bration Bundle (Stamp Set AND Designer Series Papers) and can be yours for free with an order $180.00 (not including postage and handling).

  • Dies: Slim Card Dies (J-J 2022 Catalogue), Tailor Made Tags

  • Cardstock:  Sahara Sand (card base, die cut), Basic White (die cut, card topper, card inner)
  • DSP:  Simply Marbleous (J-F 2022 Sale-A- Bration)
  • Inks:  Sahara Sand (sentiment), Pacific Point (flowers), Granny Apple Green (leaves)
  • Colouring Accessories:  Watercolour Pencils - Pacific Point (Assortment 1), Granny Apple Green (Assortment 2), Blender Pen 
  • Embellishments: Baker's Twine Essentials Pack, Brushed Brass Butterflies
  • Tools:  Paper Trimmer, Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine, Snips
  • Adhesives: Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals

How To Assemble:

 For this card you will need:

A piece of Sahara Sand cardstock measuring 8 1//2" x 7" and scored at 3/1/2" on the 7" side. 
Two pieces of Basic White cardstock measuring 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" Use one as a base for the Die Cut and use the second as the card inner. 
A piece of Basic White cardstock measuring 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 for the die cut. 
A scrap piece of Basic White cardstock for the flowers, leaves and sentiment.

You will also need pieces of the Simply Marbleous DSP in Coastal Cabana and Sahara Sand cardstock.

 Die cut both the Sahara Sand cardstock and the DSP and keep the negative pieces to use as details on the card front.




 Die cut the Basic White cardstock and glue down onto the other piece of Basic White cardstock to create the base for the card topper.





Stamp the large floral image in Pacific Point Ink.
Using the Pacific Point Watercolour Pencil, add colour to the petals around the centre of each flower.
Gently use a Blender Pen to move the colour to the edges of each petal.

Fussy cut one pair and one single flower for the front of the card.
Stamp leaves in Granny Apple Green
Add a tiny amount of colour to the bottom of each leaf using the Granny Apply Green watercolour pencil.  Feel free to use a different green from the same Assortment at the Pacific Point pencil.
Gently use a Blender pen to distribute the colour over the whole leaf.
Fussy cut all three leaves for the front of the card.

Stamp the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink and die cut using the second to largest tag die in the Tailor Made Tag Dies.
Add some bakers twine and tie a bow - I used two strands.
Attach this to the front of the card using Dimensionals. 

I fussy cut the extra stamped image I had coloured and stuck to to the card inner then glued this to the inside of the card.

Arrange the stamped images.  I have glued the top flowers and all leaves directly to the card front with Tombow Liquid Glue.  The bottom flower as been attached with a Dimensional.
For a final touch, I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies.




Finished card.
