CI 17: Super Duper Colour Combination

Published by under cards | Sep 13 2017

Colour INKspiration #17 Blog Hop - card from

Our colour palette this week for the Colour INKspiration challenge is a fabulously bright and happy combination, inspired by this fun variation of a garden shed.


Colour INKspiration #17


In Stampin’ Up! colours, we’re calling them Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Flirty Flamingo. You would have to be a brave soul to paint your garden furniture Lemon Lime Twist – but this really works. Love it.

So after pulling out my colours, and studying my stamp sets, I came up with this….

The stamp set used is called, appropriately, Super Duper. It includes an awesome variety of stamps, but I particularly love the balloons and those fabulous sentiments.

For this card I stamped the main Super Duper sentiment twice: Once in Lemon Lime Twist and once in Tempting Turquoise. I cut the separate banner elements apart, and reunited them in different colours using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Our colour combo this fortnight called for Flirty Flamingo too, so I tucked a little cardstock banner strip behind the main sentiment, and added a few tiny dots with the tip of a Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker.

An effective birthday card for the young or young-at-heart.

    Yep – definitely a super duper card Simone. I love the raised elements and the stamped background.

    I reckon this card would be so perfect for teenagers who are tricky to create for sometimes! These colours just work so amazingly well.

    Fabulous card, Simone. Love the CAS design, the layered sentiment and the teeny Flirty Flamingo dots are just the sweetest addition. Such a fun, bright and cheerful creation.
