Colour INKspiration Blog Hop – CI03 – When in Doubt STAMP


Welcome to another Colour INKspiration Blog Hop! You may be starting here – or you might have hopped on over from the amazing Paula Dobson! Love, love, love her card – and that gorgeous stamp!

We continue to be excited by the response we’ve had to The Colour INKspiration Facebook Group and Challenge. The group has broken the 1000 members threshold! WOW!

Did you see the Top 5 Pick? Their photos were put into an album and a poll set up for Group Members to vote. You can check out the album Here I’ll be heading there shortly to see which of those amazing projects was voted WINNER as people’s choice!

So – a quick reminder as to how Colour INKspiration works – Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 9pm New Zealand Daylight Savings Time (7 pm AEDT), a new Pinterest Inspired colour swatch will be uploaded to the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group, and the Colour INKspiration Design Team will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop.

There’s also a Colour INKspiration Facebook Group for Stampin’ Up! ® enthusiasts who would like to share their paper craft projects using the colour combinations.

Members of the Facebook group have the option to join the Colour INKspiration ‘Challenge’ by uploading photos of their projects. The Challenge closes a day before the new one starts. The group members get to vote for their favourite from the Top % Pick (as selected and voted on by the Design Team) – the project with the most votes wins the Challenge.

I don’t know about you – but I’ve been feeling like a winner every week so far as there have been such enthusiasm and so many fabulous projects shared – there is just so much INKspiration on the page!

Our Pinterest Inspired Colour Swatch for Colour INKspiration number 3 is:

I’m a little in love with the t-shirt Builder dies, and the co-ordinating stamp sets at the moment, and wanted to use one of the stamping themed sentiments for my team swap which was last week. 

Here’s what I came up with 

“when in doubt STAMP”!

I like that sentiment! – so much that I needed to repeat it – over – & over – like a personal Mantra!

This is one of the stamps in the Designer T stamp set which is a Sale-A-Bration Set. So remember it’s only available until 31 March. 

On the inside of the card I used images from the co-ordinating Custom Tee set

If you are wondering about the background behind the shirt – I first stamped the sun image from Kinda Eclectic in Soft Suede.  I used the Sunburst Framelit on a piece of Window Sheet to cut out a template. I then used this as a stencil to brayer some peek-a-boo Peach Ink.

I then rotated the stencil so it was masking the Peek-a-boo Peach and added soft Sky with the sponge brayer

I had such fun creating in these colours – I hope you play along too!
