Colour INKspiration #70 Birthdays

Hello Hello

Welcome to the first Colour INKspiration Challenge for 2020. To kick off the New Year and celebrate 3 years of Colour INKspiration Challenges we have a fun Birthday themed Blog Hop! And to spice things up a little more each Design Team member was able to chose three of their favourite colours to use in combination with the Birthday Theme for this Blog Hop.

My gorgeous friend and fellow Colour INKer, Leonie Stuart, chose this colour combination and seeing I loved it so much I decided to use it too - Thanks, Leonie xx

I have a couple of cards to share with you today. To achieve the majority of my chosen colour combination I have used cardstock scraps in Night of Navy and Melon Mambo.

The first card has a background made up of four strips of card stock, two each of Melon Mambo and Night of Navy. The floral bouquet image from the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set has been stamped in Night of Navy ink, fussy cut and adhered under the heat embossed sentiment.

The second card has a diagonally striped panel made from Melon Mambo and Night of Navy card stock. This panel was cut down and adhered to the Tile embossed card front. The image from Free As A Bird has been stamped in Night of Navy ink, fussy cut and then adhered over the striped panel with dimensionals.

I have used the sentiment "celebrate today" which is part of a kit called Kerchief and can be earned FREE with any AUD$90 purchase during Sale-a-bration.

  1. That's a striking combination, Jackie. As always, fantastic!

  2. Great use of these colours Jackie! The colourless images adds so much dimension! Kelly x

  3. Stunning cards Jackie!! I always love you subtle use of the embossing folders and they are such a beautiful detail on these cards. The colour combo is perfect too. TFS xx

  4. Very inspired by the coloured strip backgrounds, and no-colour images. A really vibrant, funky look.💕

  5. Brilliant ideas with paper and simple stamping! And the colours make it look so amazing! Wow wow wow

  6. So bold & beautiful, Jackie. Amazing how the same colours can look so different (referring to Cathy's creation). I love that you've used all the colour to 'frame' your uncoloured images. Love it. x

  7. Such a pretty colour combo. Love both of your cards.

  8. Beautiful cards Jackie. I love your use of the colours. Your work always amazes me x

  9. what a brilliant use of leftover cardstock pieces-we all have hundreds of those, fabulous cards as always. the uncoloured images look amazing Jackie. Brilliant

  10. This is such a beautiful colour combination and your cards are stunning Jackie. What a great way to use up leftover cardstock.

  11. Oh sigh! Your cards are just stunning. You never cease to amaze me.

  12. As reported by Stanford Medical, It's really the SINGLE reason this country's women live 10 years longer and weigh 42 lbs less than we do.

    (And actually, it really has NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret exercise and absolutely EVERYTHING around "how" they eat.)

    BTW, What I said is "HOW", and not "what"...
