CI03: Colour INKspiration – Stampin’ Up!’s Window Shopping

Published by under cards | Feb 08 2017

Well hello! And welcome to the 3rd Colour INKspiration challenge. It’s great to be creating again with the Colour INKspiration Crew.

Each fortnight the crew inspires you with a blog hop as we unveil the new challenge colours, and you can join in on our challenge page! We have 1000+ members, many of whom share their awesome projects. Seriously – you have to check out the photo albums to see what I mean! Come and join us.

For a little bit of extra fun, each week the crew will pick a winner, and there’ll be a people’s choice winner too.  I hope to see you there!


Another gorgeous pic to inspire us, along with their Stampin’ Up! colours. Can you believe that these are actually cakes! Ah-mazing.

This week it’s Marina Mist, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Suede, White and Soft Sky.


And again, a colour combination I have never used!

(I have to admit I struggled with this one, but it was fun to try something new).

I used the Window Shopping stamp set, Stitched Shapes Framelits (yay – now available!), and You’ve Got This stamp set. And a little vellum layer back there too.

There’s a touch of paper piecing of the flowers and leaves around the sentiment (make sure you’ve got super sharp paper snips for the fussy cutting) and a Soft Sky small enamel circle in the middle of the flower.


It is finished off with a little bit of Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon and washi tape inside. (The washi is from the Playful Palette set).

So that’s me! Thanks for visiting 🙂

Next we have the very talented Rachel Palmieri. Click the link below to see what she has created with this great colour combination.


I look forward to seeing your creations over in the Challenge group!

Happy stamping,

Simone Bartrum, Stampin' Up! demonstrator Australia, Victoria

    I struggled too Simone, but I love what you came up with. I have too many sets that I haven’t had time to use yet, so this inspiration is a great bonus for me when I do get the Window shopping set inked up.I love the softness of your card

    I am loving all the texture and colours that blend so well together in the background and then all the layers of colours and sizes and then the sentiment and centrepiece.

    This is so beautiful Simone. I love the how the textured background really sets off the sentiment centrepiece.
