Merriest Moments for CI111


It's already time for a new challenge at Colour INKspiration! The crew are loving seeing the wonderful entries that are rolling in. We can't wait to see what you make of these colours, chosen by Crew Member, Nicole WIlson.

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 three 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 Michele Miller 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.

Isn't this a beautiful, near-neutral palette? Yet even so, they suggested a Christmas card to me.

Merriest Moments is one of my three favourite Christmas sets from 2021. Although the hybrid embossing folder and dies are absolute winners, the stamps are wonderful too.

I've used Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent with a mix of foliage stamps to lay down a background for the layered up Crumb Cake poinsettia flower. I've added some Crumb Cake splatters too.

Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla work so well with Copper Foil that I've added some of that as a free colour.

The final touch were a few Evening Evergreen jewels from the 2021-2023 In Colour Jewels pack. I love how they change colour in the light. 

It's a deceptively simple card and I really like the result. 😀
