CI #68 - Blues and Greens

Welcome to another Colour INKspiration challenge, where we match Stampin' Up! colours to the ones from an inspiration photo, and use them to create our projects.

This beautiful image has the colours: Shaded Spruce, Blueberry Bushel, Pretty Peacock, Coastal Cabana and silver. As usual you can also add any of the basic colours (black, white and vanilla).

I loved this colour combo as the inspiration image was one that I found some time ago and have been very excited to create using these great colours.  I wanted to make a project that is a little different to my usual crations, and started with a 10.5cm x 10.5cm base to my card. I loved the idea of layering silver foil under the base and top layers, off-setting the top layer by 90 degrees.  All of the stamps in this project come from Beauty Abounds. 

I hope you are inspired to join in with this challenge, as I mentioned at the start of my post you have three weeks to complete this one, so grab your inks and papers then post a picture of your project to the CI Facebook Page.

Time to hop on over and see what the lovely Nikki has created with the colours.

Happy Stamping


  1. The square shape of the card base really accentuates the diamond centre panel. LOVE that you've created your own DSP using the stamps from Beauty Abounds. So clever and so pretty!

  2. Beautiful collage stamping and so perfectly arranged on the pattern!!

  3. What a lovely card! The silver really sets off the centre piece.


I love reading your comments, thanks for taking the time to write them.
