Beautifully Happy for CI 134

Welcome to the latest challenge at Colour INKspiration. This gorgeous palette was chosen for us by Crew Member, Cheryll Miller.

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. We welcome Jane Martin as our Guest Designer for this challenge.

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

Well,  I know that gorgeous graphic of Cheryll's suggests fun summer parties and Christmas but it also suggested florals to me. Maybe that's because I was excited by the sneak peek Sale-A-Bration 2023 set I received at On Stage in Auckland, which was just begging me to to use it! Beautifully Happy will be available as a free gift with a qualifying purchase from 5 January 2023. It's a beautiful floral set with lovely sentiments as well. You can fill in the outlines with stamps or colour using your choice of colouring tool, so lots of different looks available with this one!

For the first outing of this stamp set, I used the filler stamps to colour the outline image. I liked that the filler was slightly bigger than the outline, so no need to feel bad for going over the lines!

The tiny bee stamp is adorable and I gave her some Wink of Stella stripes. And the splatter stamp... I love a splatter stamp so I can see that I'll be getting quite a lot of use out of this SAB set, especially with the variety of beautiful mixed font sentiments.

We'd love to have you join in the challenge with us. Visit the Colour INKspiration site to check out the album of Crew Cards for inspiration. You can also add your entry there. We all enjoy seeing what you do with our colour palettes, so join in!

  1. Very pretty Jan - the white space and textured panel do a great job of balancing this pair of quite strong, bright colours. Loving the sneak peek too!
