Stamp With Us colour inspiration challenge


I loved all your entries to meet the male cards challenge last time around.

Our challenge this week over at Stamp With Us is a colour challenge using this image as our inspiration:

I took my colours from the tulips and then used the Spring stamp from the Flower for all Seasons as that includes some tulips! I decided to make a gift box and a small square card.


Nice and bright and cheery for Spring I think - hope you agree.


Recipe
Stamp sets: A Flower for all Seasons, Happy Moments
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Pixie Pink, Whisper White
DSP: Kaleidoscope
Ink: Black Stazon, Markers, Pink Passion
Punches: Tag, Small Tag, Word Window
Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon: Pumpkin Pie
Other: White Eyelet

I used a blend of Pumpkin Pie and Pixie Pink markers to colour the tulips to mirror the inspiration photo and the Kaleidoscope DSP. The aperture created by the Word Window punch was marked in pencil on the Pixie Pink card behind it. I then stamped the sentiment in Pink Passion ink and then erased the pencil marks.

Recipe
Stamp sets: A Flower for all Seasons
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Pixie Pink, Whisper White
DSP: Kaleidoscope
Ink: Black Stazon, Markers
Punches: 1-3/4" Circle, Scallop Edge
Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon: Pumpkin Pie

For this matching gift box I covered the flap in the same DSP, punched some holes with the Crop-a-dile and threaded with ribbon to close. I coloured an identical image to that on the front of the card, punched with the Circle punch and raised on dimensionals.

Can't wait to see what you create for this challenge.

Later this morning I'll be taking part in a bloghop to showcase the new products in our Mini Catalogue. You'll be able to see it here, any time after 10am. Hope you get chance to check it out.
