Everyday Details for Colour INKspiration 159


Welcome to the 159th Challenge at Colour INKspiration! We'd be delighted to have you join us for this gorgeous colour combination chosen by team 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 challenge is open for two weeks and closes Monday 26 February, 7pm AEST.

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

I've got lots of delightful goodies on my desk waiting to be tested out, so decided to use one of them. I chose the Everyday Details bundle for its eclectic mix of images, sweet (but not too sweet) sentiments and wonderful all-purpose dies. In fact, in many ways the dies have nothing at all to do with the stamp set and you could happily add the dies alone to your collection. They are a mix of shapes with interesting patterns of holes. The circles and rectangles have some dies with double holes so you can either cut a shape or a decorative frame. Other dies cut patterns in the card, like the horizontal in this card. 

Really, this card came together quickly. I cut and coloured the teacup stamp before cutting it with one of the aforementioned circle-with-holes dies, then mounted it onto one of the circles from Stylish Shapes to give it a border and a backing.

I used the decorative line of diamond shaped holes to create a horizontal line across the page, allowing the Berry Burst to peep through. The sentiment was added on a strip and some Tinsel Adhesive-backed gems finished it off. 

You can see what the rest of the Design Team have done with these colours in the Crew Inspiration Album on the Colour INKspiration Challenge Facebook page.

  1. This is beautiful Jan - the teacup image works perfectly and the Everyday Details label and horizontal coordinate beautifully. I am struggling to use these colours in as pleasing a way as you have even though I love the combo!
