Inkspiration Colour Challenge #24

Hey everyone!

It’s that time of week again and this week is a Colour challenge. At first  I was a little concerned about the combo LOL! I don’t play with them much. But after thinking about it for a while I had a couple of ideas form in my mind. I have been a very busy girl too, making at least 10 swaps a day in preparation for Sydney convention next week. I just wanted you to know! I wonder if I will use this design as one…Hmmmmm! I think I might use the SS at least.

Well here is the Colour Challenge-

and of course my submission-

What do you think? I pulled out my fave SS and decided to use some of those fabulous Big Shot goodies. Did you know that the Wide Oval punch is the perfect mat for the die I used? I die cut one each of one of the labels (4 pack of labels) in Whisper White and one in Basic Grey. I used my Craft knife to cut out the perforated oval in the center of the white one….matted it on the Apricot Appeal Wide Oval punched piece and then stuck it down to the Basic Grey label.  I love how it turned out.

  • Stamp Set– Organic Outlines, Best Yet
  • Cardstock– Apricot Appeal, Whisper White, Sage Shadow, Basic Grey
  • Ink– Apricot Appeal, Basic Grey
  • Accessories– Label die, Little Leaves Die, SAMJ, Dimensionals, Craft knife

Now check out the rest of the DT-






Hopefully Keesh will have her computer back online today! So cross fingers for that to go ahead with anymore glitches!!

I best get going on some more swaps!

Retreat challenges!!

Hey everyone!

While we were away on the retreat Madonna set some challenges. We used the three challenges set by the Elite Challenges blog for the month of March. We are sooo lucky to be part of a fantastic team!! We all had heaps of fun with these! I did the Stamp Set challenge even though it was a SS I struggle with. You will se my creation on here in the next couple of days!

Here is the colours

and of course here is my creation

Looks very much similar to a card I have done just recently. I am sure you remember it. I used Tangerine Tango. I just love this stamp set, I suppose you can tell that already! LOL!

I stamped the Baja Breeze flower in second generation and used my blender pen and Baja Breeze Ink to add the spots. I wasn’t going to do that but first generation flower was too strong and the second seemed to get lost on the card, hence the spots. I think it turned out very well. So well in fact that I received 2nd prize for this card. Mads organised gifts for all the challenges in first second and third! Isn’t she super nice?!

Well best be off and do some creating today. I got something in the mail yesterday that I am itching to play with!
