Colour INKspiration – CI49


Welcome to the first Colour INKspiration blog hop for 2019. We have several new crew members joining us this year too. To kick things off we have an awesome colour combination…


Don’t you just love beach houses? I love this image and funnily enough, this colour combination was very similar to my last blog hop with Caseing The Catty on last Sunday night, so needless to say, it was very happy to be using these colours again!

I’ve decided to give you a sneak peak… this project uses one of the new Sale-a-Bration launching this week. It’s the All Adorned stamp set and features a number of images and sentiments.

I think these stamps work really well using the Stamparatus. I think we’ll be seeing quite a lot of fun stamping done with these image stamps. For this card, first I trimmed down a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 100mm square. I lined my Stamparatus with a piece of the small grid paper, I love how the all grid lines line up together – on the paper and on the plates – makes positioning really easy.

I lined up the Whisper White on the grid paper and then positioned my stamp on the corresponding grid on the stamparatus plate, inked up my stamp and stamped it. Rotating my whisper white cardstock four times, and each time, lining it up with the same grid lines, allowed me to stamp in the corners, creating this gorgeous frame.

Layering this piece on some Coastal Cabana cardstock, these went onto Highland Heather cardbase. I cut the cardbase square, 105mm x 210mm and scored in half.

Finishing off with some simple decorative elements – I stamped one of the flourish stamps, in Pineapple Punch in the middle of the frame, layered a strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock over the top which I cut flags to both ends.

I heat embossed butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set with Black powder, punched them out and layered them over the top. Finishing with some of those gorgeous glitter enamel dots either side of the main butterfly and a simple sentiment at the bottom.

Next up in the hop is the amazing Lou Kitzelman.


Once you have enjoyed all the amazing inspiration in this hop, pop over to our Facebook Challenge group and load up your creation using these colours. This challenge is open until Monday, February 25th. Look forward to seeing you over on the group.

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,

  1. Great tips with the plates and stamparatus Rose. Your purple frame looks amazing- and I always think a square card is a little bit special. Thanks again for the amazing work with the banners and graphics.


  2. Such a great use of Stamparatus! It makes those stamps shine. I love the glossy embossed butterfly too – that’s one thing I’ve not doe with them yet and it looks fabulous.


  3. Amazing framework. And it looks so easy with the stamparatus! Lovely way to show off these new things and the fun colours too.
