A fresh Start for Colour INKspiration 2018 #25

Welcome and Hello to 2018 Colour INKspiration challenges!!
Image may contain: plant, drink and nature

And what a fresh start we have for you!!  The colours for our 25th challenge are:
Night of Navy, Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist.

So, I went all masculine for our challenge this time.

I'm featuring a suite of cards using our lovely new stamp set Truly Tailored from our Occasions Catalogue.  They are quite simple cards with a few variations.  This one above features the new Simple Stripes embossing folder.

With this card, I've used the coordinating Tailored Tag punch for the Lemon Lime Twist and fussy cut the greeting from the stamp set.  

A little Fresh Florals DSP helped me give this card an extra boost....

and the large Dapper greeting needed a Stitched Shapes framelit for the extra size.  I've also added a pair of shoes from the ever useful Guy Greetings stamp set!!

Now it's time for you to keep hopping and being inspired with these glorious colours!!  Patrice has created a GORGEOUS card featuring a Sale-a-bration stamp set!!

And please add your projects to our lineup for the challenge at our facebook challenge page here.  

I hope you've been inspired!

Until Next Time,
Happy stamping,
Love Julia   x


  1. What an interesting collection of cards - variations on a theme. These colours work wonderfully well with that set and with masculine cards. Lovely work!

  2. I'm so grateful for your all masculine inspiration, Julia. These colours all work so well with the new Truly Tailored set (which I have coming in my current order - yay). You've created a lovely set of cards. x
