Thoughtful Wishes - Colour INKspiration Challenge #168

 


Hello and welcome!

We have quite a strong colour palette this Challenge but don't let this put you off.  There are many techniques you can do which will tone them down which is what did.  My card features the Thoughful Wishes Bundle and I used ink blending prior to die-cutting to create a softer finish.

The coloured die-cut was adhered over an 'embossed' feature created by using the Silicone Craft Mat with the large decorative die.  This is a great technique to use with any detailed die for extra background texture.  

The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso and punched with the Labeled With Love punch.  A very light touch of Lost Lagoon ink was blended over the stamping.  This was attached to the card front with Dimensionals. No embellishments were added to keep in with the clean and simple design.

I created a second mat layer using the Silicone Mat and same detailed die for the inside of the card.

 

Supplies:

  • Bundle:  Thoughtful Wishes
  • Punch:  Labelled With Love
  • Inks:  Lost Lagoon, Daffodil Delight Cajun Craze, Real Red, Early Espresso
  • Cardstock:  Basic White Thick (card base), Basic White (mat layers, label)
  • Tools:  Blending Brushes, Silicone Craft Mat, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Paper Trimmer
  • Adhesives:  Tombow Liquid Glue, Dimensionals

Watercoloured Florals - Colour INKspiration Challenge #167

 


  Hi there and welcome!

Today I'm sharing a card created for Colour INKspiration Challenge #167.  Our inspiration photo was chosen by fellow Crew member, Bronwyn Eastley and our Guest Designer for this Challenge is Gail Ellis.  I can't wait to go and see what everyone has created. There's more information below if you would like to join our Challenge Group on Facebook.

We have a lovely palette to work this time and as we're allowed to being in neutrals, I've added Gray Granite which helped in my shabby chic design. My card features the Textured Florals Stamp Set and co-ordinating Dies, the sentiment comes from Sweetly Scripted which I thought fitted in quite nicely.

The background was created using the Eyelet 3D Embossing Folder which I then brayered White Craft Ink onto.  

To create each of the images, I applied ink to each stamp and lightly spritzed with water.  This gives a soft watercoloured appearance.  These were then attached to the card front with Dimensionals. Sequins from the Adhesive-Backed Sequins Trio to add some sparkle. 

I adhered a strip from the embossed black cardstock and trimmed it with with a piece of Pretty In Pink cardstock to finish the inside.

 

Supplies: 

  • Stamp Sets:  Textured Florals, Sweetly Scipted
  • Dies:  Textured Florals
  • Embossing Folder:  Eyelet 3D
  • Inks:  White Craft,Pretty In Pink, Gray Granite, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Cardstock: Basic White Thick, Basic White Regular, Pretty In Pink, Basic Black
  • Embellishments: Adhesive-Backed Sequins Trio
  • Tools:  Paper Trimmer, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Brayer, Scissors, Spritzer
  • Adhesives:  Dimensionals, Mini Dimensionals, Tombow Liquid Glue
