Clean and Simple - Colour INKspiration Challenge #122

Hi there my crafty friends!  Welcome back for another Colour INKspiration Challenge.

This photo inspiration for Challenge #122 was chosen by myself as a way to showcase the new 2022-24 In Colours.

The brief was to use at lease three of the colours and as I didn't want to overpower my project as these colours are very vibrant, I went with a clean and simple design. But dont be deceived, this style of card can still have a lot of 'wow' factor.  
My card features all the new 2022-24 In Colours and I've paired them with the new Graceful Tiles stamp set from the 2022-23 Annual Catalogue.  I cant wait to work with this set more as I can see lots of potential. 
  • Stamp Set: Graceful Tiles
  • Cardstock: Basic White Thick and Regular
  • Ink:  Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky
  • Tools:  Paper Trimmer, Stamparatus
  • Adhesive:  Dimensionals, Tombow Liquid Glue
How To Make:
  • For this you will need a card base in Basic White Thick cardstock, a piece of Basic White regular cardstock measuring 1/8" (3 mm) smaller on two sides than the card front, 3" x 3" (7.5cm x 7.5cm) piece of Basic White regular cardstock for stamping, a Basic White inner measuring 1/4" (approx 5cm) less on two side than the card front.

  • Stamp the sentiment roughly two thirds on the way down on the largest piece of Basic White regular cardstock.
  • Stamp the image from Graceful Tiles in each colour on the 3" x 3" piece of Basic White cardstock.  Trim this to create four equal squares measuring 1 1/2" x 1 1/2".  
  • Attach Dimensionals to the back of each square, remove the backs and add a drop of liquid glue to each Dimensional.  The glue will allow you 'wriggle time' to move each square into position.  Add these above the sentiment.
  •  Adhere this to the card front.
  • Stamp a row of different coloured images across the bottom edge of the last piece of Basic White cardstock and adhere this to the inside  of the card.

  • This literally took me 1/2 hour to create. You could easily stamp a half or full sheet of cardstock and trim it down into smaller tiles and create a batch of cards.

Here is a black and white version of the same design using the same stamp set. Swap out the colours for your favourites or create a monochromatic version.
