Our last hop for 2019 Colour INKspiration #69

Hello and Welcome to our Blog Hop and Challenge with Colour INKspiration.

Our Challenges are about using specific colours from some great Pinterest photos and thi is our last Colour INKspiration Blog Hop for 2019!! Check out these colours!!!

Don't you love the picture this time?  I've used the colours as my basis for some Christmas gifts for work colleagues.  

Using one of our NEW Stamp Sets coming in the Mini Catalogue - Forever Blossoms - I've created my own version of Designer Series Paper for my Mini Easel Calendar Cards.  These are just to right size to squeeze onto a busy desk!!

The base of the card is 10cm by 21cm and I have scored at 9cm and 15cm to create the folds to make the easel.  I've used some Grapefruit Grove to create a backing for the mini calendars and for the lovely words from the stamp set.  I've chopped off the remaining words from this greeting so it suits the calendar theme (and so it would fit on the card!!!).

The flowers were smooshed a little using the clear Wink of Stella pen - so the background is very shimmery and pretty!!  This is actually quite an easy project and very simple, but the colours really helped it to be very special!!  

Up next on our hop this time is the lovely and amazing Nikki. and her stunning dome card.  Make sure you hop all the way around the team - everyone is so clever and inspirational!  

This is our last challenge for 2019, so why not join in the fun with us?  Use these colours, and then add your photo to the lineup on our facebook challenge page!!


  1. I love that you stamped all the background for these cute mini calendars. They look amazing. I didn't buy any this year as every year I buy some and I never get around to putting them in projects. LOL.

  2. Such sweet calendars, Julia. I love your stamped background. D x
