In Bloom for Colour INKspiration #113

In Bloom for Colour INKspiration #113


In Bloom Stamp Set and Pierced Blooms Dies are old favourites from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, used to create a fun card for Colour Inkspiration Challenge #113.

Welcome to my blog. It’s time for another Colour INKspiration challenge – CI#113 Inspiration graphic is this funky festive tree.

This inspiration pic was chosen by Lou Kitzelman … and the colour scheme is just as fun and funky. Bright and Sassy! Can’t wait to see the creations using this colour scheme.

It is very easy to enter the Colour INKspiration Challenge. You don’t need a blog, you can simply post your card image in the facebook group.
Our CI#113 challenge features Pale Papaya, Polished Pink, Basic White, Basic Black and Gold. The challenge parameters are to use all five of the challenge colours (or if you don’t have the exact colour, you can substitute a close alternative), and in addition you can use neutrals such as Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Basic Black as well as Metallics.

Check out how you can join in the challenge at the end of this post or on the facebook page here.
And if you need inspiration, the designer’s album for this challenge is absolutely fantastic. Click on the Media tab and then “Albums”.

In Bloom Funky Floral Card …

In Bloom for CI113

I have combined the Colour Challenge with the In Bloom Stamp set and Pierced Blooms Dies, and also the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper from the Host Rewards section in the Annual Catalogue. This mega pack of paper has black and white designs on the reverse of each piece, giving you so many options to colour up the paper to suit your project.

IN Bloom for CI113

I have created a background pattern with the stamps from the In Bloom Stamp Set, using the challenge colours, Polished Pink, Pale Papaya and Tuxedo Memento Black. The central panel of patterned paper is one of the black and white designs from the Pattern Party Host Pack of Paper, coloured up with Polished Pink ink and a blending brush and then some of the dots have been coloured with Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends.

I have created a tutorial with all supplies used and measurements in both Metric for A4 and Imperial for letter size card.
