Best Year for CI 104


We had amazing entries in our last challenge and we're really looking forward to what you do with the latest challenge. It's a stark and dramatic colourway: Basic Black, Basic White and Cherry Cobbler.

If you haven't played with us before, we are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators from the South Pacific. Challenges are shown and entered via our Facebook Group page. If you don't belong, and would like to, click here. Don't forget to answer the two easy questions you'll be asked when you ask to join the group.

Each challenge, Top Picks and a winner are chosen by the crew and the winner offered a chance to Guest Design with us for a future challenge. This time, we have Tracy Held joining us as Guest Designer.

If you don't have an exact challenge colour, feel free to replace it with whatever you have that's closest. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

The July-December Mini Catalogue (formerly the Holiday Catalogue) will be live on 3 August. Along with that, there is a brand new round of Sale-abration where you can choose an item from the Sale-abration brochure for each $110 you spend in a single order (excluding postage).

One of those items is the set of gorgeous 12x12 Beautifully Penned DSP, all designs in Basic Black and Basic White. Black and White papers are such a versatile product, whether you use them plain or add your own colour with Stampin' Blends or Blending Brushes. The sharp-eyed will have noticed that this DSP coordinates with the Hand Penned Bundle from the Annual Catalogue, but you can use it alone too as I have here.

The card front is embossed with the Parisian Flourishes 3D embossing folder. The die cut butterfly is from Brilliant Wings

The sentiment is from an unexpected favourite from the Annual Catalogue, Best Year. This set has a selection of useful sentiments. Especially nice is that some of them have a matching sentiment for the inside of the card in the same font. 

The label for the sentiment and butterfly is made with the Lovely Labels punch.

The Colour INKspiration crew would love to see what you do with these colours, so play along with us!
