Natural Softness Colour Inkspiration #61

Hello and Welcome to the amazing, fun challenge and blog hop for Colour INKspiration.  

Our challenge is to create using only the colours featured from our Pinterest inspired images!!  

Image may contain: indoor

This time the colours are:  Gray Granite, Soft Suede, Whisper White and Mint Macaron.  And aren't the inspiration photos divine!!  I love this natural softness!!  And I wonder if we have any wedding projects from this inspiration!!

My card is quite simple and features the lovely For the Love of Felt stamp set.  This stamp set works brilliantly with a corresponding kit which is full of bright and fun colours, so it was really lovely for me to create using these softer and natural hues.  

Do you like the little corrugated feature on the side of the front?  This was to add a bit of interest and not cover up the fun stamping of the greeting.  

I've used the Stamparatus for the repeat stamping of the greeting and the stitched swirl on the front of the card.  This is actually one of our projects for our upcoming Stamparatus class.  

The inside of the card features some very simple collage stamping in the corners.

So, make sure you check out the whole design team - I always love love love seeing the amazing projects created by this fabulous group!!

Up next is Jan and her wonderful leafy card using these colours.  

We would really love you to join in the fun with our challenge too!  Add your project using these colours to the lineup on our facebook challenge page.


  1. I really like the corrugated details. Those strong verticals ground the flowers and lead the eye down the repeated sentiments. Having the flowers in Soft Suede was a creative idea that's worked well. Nice design, Julia.

  2. I like the way you focused on soft suede with the other colours playing a minor role. I actually love the flowers, the corrugated paper, the repeat stamping of the sentiment and the inside stamping - I think that is pretty much the whole card!!!

  3. Love the texture with the corrugated embossing folder. Gorgeous card.
