Gorgeously Made for Colour INKspiration 144


Welcome to the latest challenge at Colour INKspiration! This sweet confection of a palette was chosen for us by Crew Member Monica Formosa.

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. 

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.

I found this colour group a challenging one. Fortunately, I'd just cracked open a new bundle from the 2023-24 Annual Catalogue, Gorgeously Made. This eclectic set lends itself to a multi-colour treatment. Although it comes with the most fantastic DSP, you can of course, use any colours you want with the stamp set.

I made two versions because I couldn't decide which I preferred: the Lemon Lolly foliage or the Crushed Curry. Which do you prefer?

One of the many things I like about this set is how much impact, and variety, you can get with just stamps, inks, paper and some die cuts. 

You can see more about this bundle, get some tips on stamping and see how I made this card in the tutorial below. I also share how to make this lovely decorative edge. 

We'd love to have you join in the challenge with us. Visit the Colour INKspiration page 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!

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas, get you catalogues and provide you with Stampin' Up products.
