Stamped One Sheet Wonder - Colour INKspiration Challenge #146


Hi there crafty friends!

Welcome to another Colour INKspiration Challenge. We have another fun colour palette to create for Challenge #146 and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created.  Our inspiration photo was chosen by fellow Crew Member Nicole Wilson and the Guest Designer is the amazing Jolanda Johnson.  This Challenge will run from June 28 to July 10 2023.

For my project, I decided to do a little stamping in the centre of the cardstock with the plan of trimming to create four cards.  I love this way of stamping when I need to make a lot of cards when time poor.  To begin with, I measured and marked with a light pencil line the centre of the cardstock both horizontally and vertically to help with the positioning of the overall stamping.  These were then erased at the end after the stamping was dry.


  • Stamp Sets:  Nature's Prints, Textured Floral, Irresistible Blooms, Petal Park, Earthen Textures, Layering Leaves
  • Cardstock:  Basic White A4
  • Inks:  Berry Burst, Blackberry Bliss, Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green

Once finished, I trimmed the cardstock into four and matted these onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and mounted onto a Parakeet Party card base.  The brighter green worked better with the stamping.

I will stamp greetings as I need the cards and either directly on the card front or die-cut or punch and attach to the areas of white space with Dimensionals - can't have all that lovely stamping being covered. Add a few embellishments and it's done!
