CI47: Colour INKspiration Challenge

Published by under cards | Dec 12 2018


Welcome to the home of the Colour INKspiration Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators who love to create papercraft projects using Pinterest-inspired colour combinations. Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month we have a design team blog hop where we showcase projects using the featured colour palette. The hops will commence at 7pm (AEST). Our ‘home’ is the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group where we encourage everyone to join in by uploading their projects to highlight the current colour combo. Hopefully you can use our blog hop as inspiration! Will you join us? For more ideas and inspiration, check out our Pinterest board.

CI#47 Colour Inkspiration Challenge

Now this picture is something to get us in the creative mood.

Are you at the point of wrapping presents? Or are you still getting everything organised? 

I’m a bit of both at the moment, but this sweet picture certainly got me in the crafty mood. We are inspired by the colours in this picture, including Shaded Spruce, Blueberry Bushel, Crumb Cake and Powder Pink. I think the blue could probably even be Night of Navy but I love how Blueberry Bushel adds just a touch of lightness. 

Here is what I came up with…

Bike Ride by Stampin’ Up!

It’s been a while since I used the Bike Ride stamp set so it was fabulous to play with it again.

Now I’ll be honest, there are a lot of pieces in this set and unless you’re very familiar with bicycles you may be scratching your head a little (like I was!), trying to work out where all the bits go. I’ll give you a hint, just go to page 28 of the annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue and you’ll see some great projects there. Or if you don’t have your catalogue handy, just click here and you’ll see how it all works. 

It’s a clever set, with different stamp images for the peddles, handles, wheels, rims, saddle and more. 

And to add to the cuteness level, we are even given bike accessories like a basket, a dog, books, flowers and more. 

The Darling Label Punch Box was used to make the sentiment. This is a ‘must have’ in any crafters collection, if you ask me! 

It’s my huge honour to introduce the next crafter on our blog hop, because she also happens to be our Guest Designer: Cathy Pinchbeck. You can see what Cathy has created for us here
