Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Colours with Color & Contour

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You may be starting at my blog or landed here from another one.
Out theme this month is “Let your colours shine”. The whole focus is on colour, which gives us a wide open space to play in!

I have chosen to use Pale Papaya (my favourite 2021-2023 In Colour), and I have put it with Cajun Craze. When I was looking at the In Colours, I held the Pale Papaya and Cajun Craze together and decided that it was a colour match made in heaven – my perfect pair!

I have done two different cards using the flower stamp in the Color & Contour stamp set. The background pieces were cut out using the Scalloped Contours dies. (Remember you can get the stamp set and dies as a bundle at a 10% discount.

On both cards I inked up my stamp in Pale Papaya and then used a sponge dauber to dab Cajun Craze onto the stamp.

I hope the projects you’ve seen here on my blog today have inspired you & given you some colour inspiration. You are currently visiting Tracy Held at Trace Of Creativity in Australia.

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – In Colour Inspiration

I am so excited to be joining the talented ladies in the Stampin’ Creative blog hop! The theme for today’s hop is “In Colour Inspiration”. I am sure by now you have seen all the 2021-2023 In Colours – aren’t they beautiful? Sometimes there will be a few colours that I really love, and others that I am not so keen on. This time I love them all!! I even like the greens, and green is not usually my go to colour.

I have used all five In Colours in this card. The background is Evening Evergreen with the flowers stamped in evening Evergreen ink for that subtle tone on tone shading. I used Pale papaya, polished Pink and fresh freesia for the flowers. The water wash underneath the flowers are in Soft succulent. Did you know that you can order all five In Colour stamp pads as a bundle and save 10%? The stamps and dies cuts are done with the Color & Contour bundle. The sentiment is heat embossed.

I always stamp on the inside of my cards (and stamp a matching envelope). This time I stamped a daisy in the top and bottom corners.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Below is the list of all the hop participants. Be sure to visit them all to see what colourful inspiration they have to share. We love hearing from you, so please leave us comments to let us know what you think about our projects.

CASE-d Card using Forever Blossoms

I am playing along with this weeks CASE-ing the Catty Sunday Challenge again. This week’s challenge is to CASE a card in the Birthday section of the Annual Catalogue from page 60 to 67. The card that I chose is the square on on the bottom of page 60. Below is the card that I CASE-d

For my card I used the Forever Blossoms stamp set and Cherry Blossoms dies. The DSP is Hand-Penned and (soon to be retired) Hydrangea Hill.

Shaded Summer Embossed card

Thank you for joining us for the June Blogging Friends hop. We are still enamored with the new catalogue, so today’s hop is focusing on things that we want to share.

I have found a beautiful stamp set. I love everything about this set – the images, sentiments and the fonts that the sentiments are written in. It is a stamp set that doesn’t have any coordinating dies, and is called Shaded Summer

To do the background on the card, I stamped the image with Versamak ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. The ribbon is the White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon that I squished onto my Flirty Flamingo ink pad to colour. The finishing touches are the Silver & Clear Epxoy Essentials. I used clear on the background and silver on the Flirty Flamingo flowers.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone has a fun and creative weekend. Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created.

Pansy Bear

Welcome to this month’s Blogging Friends Blog Hop. Of course this month we are all very excited about the new catalogue, so our theme for this hop is “Anything Goes!”

A few years ago I went through a stage where I made teddy bears. That means that we have lots of handmade bears around the house, and have lots of love for teddy bears. When I showed my husband a picture of a pansy, he saw a bear’s body in the centre (once you see it, you can’t unsee it!). I had to try to make his vision become reality! He is very happy with the way this card came out. The teddy bear next to the card is one that I made years ago (her name is Blossom!) and she also seems to love this card.
Here is a close up of the bear in the pansy.

For this card I used the Pansy Patch bundle, Pansy Petals DSP and 2021-2023 In Color Jewels. I used the Messages die to cut out the sentiment. The face was done using white craft ink and a toothpick.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope everyone has a fun and creative weekend. Happy Mother’s Day to all moms.! Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created.

ESAD – Farewell Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

I am really excited to be joining an ESAD blog hop! If you are wondering what ESAD is, here is an explanation

Our theme for this hop is retiring products from the 2020-2021 catalogue. I have used the Gorgeous Posies stamp set and retiring in colours for my card. This stamp set was from the Gorgeous Posies project kit, but can be used on its own.

These were my favourite in colours from this collection, and I am sad to see them go. However, the new in colours are beautiful, so maybe I can find some new colours to love!
