Piece of Cake for our first colour INKspiration challenge this year #49

Hello And Welcome to Colour INKspiration 2019!!  We have some stunning new banners to kick start the year created by one of our amazing team members - Rose.  Don't they look FANTASTIC!!!

We have an amazing design team all challenging you to join in the fun and create using the prescribed colours for each challenge!!

Our colours this time are:  Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch, and  Highland Heather.  All of these (except Coastal Cabana which is a personal favourite), are TOTALLY out of my comfort zone, BUT, the projects contributed by the whole team are INCREDIBLE!!  So much to love and so so so pretty.  You'll just love this whole hop!!  Actually these colours are amazing match for our new banners too!!! 

I've used the fun Piece of Cake stamp set for my card - and as you might guess - it features more Coastal Cabana than any other colour!!
The other bright colours really do look super sweet on all the cakes though!!

See all those greetings in the background of this card?  I tried a new technique using the Stamparatus to create a bunch of background words stamping.  


I loaded up all the greetings onto the Stamparatus plate, stamped it once and then moved the hinge of the Stamparatus down to stamp it again on the bottom half of the cardstock.  


This strategy certainly speeded up the process of stamping all those greetings!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x
