Colour INKspiration #08

Welcome to addinktive designs and our eighth Colour INKspiration Blog Hop! The CI Crew are back again to help kick start this round of Colour INKspiration Challenges.

Colour INKspiration is a paper craft challenge on Facebook and this fortnight we have a lovely swatch of Autumn colours to work with.

The Colour Palette for #CI08 is Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.

This round we welcome Sue Vine as a Guest Designer.  Thanks for joining the hop, Sue and showcasing your talent.

I thought I’d whip out some new goodies that I was able to order as an attendee at On Stage and make a birthday card for a friend; these colours are ‘right up her alley’.

There’s a mix of the old and the new on my card and I just want to highlight a few of the upcoming products that will be released in June –

  • The little logs are cut from the beautiful Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack.  You are going to love this DSP!
  • The ‘lattice’ is also die cut from the same DSP stack.  The die is actually from a new set called Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and is  actually a deck chair cut down to look like lattice for a climbing plant.
  • The autumn leaf, branch and flowers are from the same set of dies.
  • There’s a coordinating stamp set called Colourful Seasons in the ‘bundle’ and that is where the sentiment comes from.

I think that the Colourful Seasons Bundle will get a real workout from me over the coming year!

Card Measurements – Card Base: Height – 5-13/16″ (14.9 cms) Width – 8-1/4″ (21 cms). Score at 2-1/16″ (mountain) and 4-1/8″ (valley) The z-fold brick wall base is 2-1/2″ (6.3 cms) high and 8-1/4″ (21 cms). Score at 4-1/8″ (mountain) and 6-3/16″ (valley). The sections of DSP or embossed bricks are measured 1/4″ less for height and width.

Here’s a list of supplies that I used on my project that are available now to purchase in my on-line store –

  1. Lovely Bron, I especially love the pile of logs and the autumn leaves on the branch, aren’t they the most lovely thinlits? You have such an eye for a detailed scene. I’m sure your friend will love her special card.

  2. Totally brilliant way to showcase these new products. They’ve just made it to my wish list based on your wonderful card. This DSP looks amazing too!

  3. Oh wow Bron! I absolutely love this card. Your z fold talent is amazing! And I love that suite and can’t wait to play!!!!

  4. Ooh this is just lovely, Bron. I am always inspired by your Z folds & this one in particular just sold me on that bundle (that I was totally not getting btw).
