Splendid Thoughts Bundle for Colour INKspiration #131

Splendid Thoughts Bundle for Colour INKspiration #131


Splendid Thoughts bundle is a stamp set and die bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue, featuring fabulous foliage stamps and dies, along with wonderful sentiments. I have used it today for Colour Inkspiration challenge #131, which is actually not a traditional colour mix for foliage.

Welcome to my blog. Today’s post is for Colour INKspirations Colour Challenge #131. Our inspiration pic was chosen by CI Design Team Member, Rose Packer. Cute pic and a rustic Autumn toned 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#131 challenge features Sweet Sorbet, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. The challenge parameters are to use all four of the challenge colours (or if you don’t have the exact colour, you can substitute a close alternative). In addition you can use neutrals such as Basic White, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand and Basic Black, or 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”, or go straight to the album here.

This bundle features elegant foliage stamps and dies … they sort of remind me of modern home interior design.

True confessions now, this card is using a sketch from Around the World on Wednesday sketch challenge. I wanted to use non-traditional colours with the Splendid Thoughts Bundle and the sketch was on my desk today, so I incorporated all three to come up with this card. The slatted background sort of reminds me of a louvre window covering (I hate to say venetian blind, more like a stylish timber louvre)!
