CI48: Colour INKspiration Challenge – Happy Tails

Published by under cards | Dec 26 2018

Welcome to the latest Colour INKspiration Challenge. 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 our design team showcase projects using the featured colour palette. 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.

Merry Christmas! Here we are and it’s Boxing Day already. I hope you’ve had a wonderful few days of merriment and festivity. 

We had a gorgeous Christmas day with family in Melbourne, and this morning kicked off Boxing Day with a big early morning family walk. Life is good. After a pretty crazy lead-up to Christmas my craft room looked like a bomb site, so I’ve spent today cleaning and tidying up. Yay – I can see my desk again! I hope you’ve had a wonderful few days too.

And now, on to the latest Colour INKspiration Challenge…

CI#48 Colour Inkspiration Challenge

The fabulous colour combination in this picture is Tranquil Tide, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride. 

This is where the colour combo took me…

It’s a sneak peak of a brand new stamp set and punch that will be available in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue on January 3.

I’ll show more of this ‘Happy Tails’ set in the coming months, as it will be a firm favourite for many of us I believe.

The colours were sponged onto a panel of Glossy Cardstock, then layered on to Vellum cardstock and Calypso Coral cardstock.

The cute four-legged friend was stamped in Versamark on Vellum cardstock, then embossed with white embossing powder. The image was then punched with the Dog Builder Punch (sneak peek: available 2nd Jan 2019).

Next on the hop is the fabulous Jacque Williams. You can catch her project here.

Happy stamping,
