Inkspirational #59

A very Happy Saturday to you all,

I am here with our new challenge at Inkspirational but first I wanted to say that I loved visiting your blogs with our CAS challenge last week. We had so many fabulous entries. Thank you so much for supporting us!

We have a colour challenge for you this week and it is:

You can use any shades of blue and you can add black and realistic colours for skin, hair and fur but no other colours.

I found this challenge a challenge! Not sure why really but I think when I am faced with set colours to use my mind goes a little blank. Also I was trying to get this made before I went on holiday and think when I am faced with a deadline creativity escapes me! However I hunted through some other challenges and came across an 'Anything Goes' challenge at Clearly Besotted Stamps. This helped so far I don't have too many CBS sets, so I got them out and had a 'ping' moment to create my card. I used some turquoise embossing powder for the CBS sentiment and then various other blues for the Uniko Studios flower stamps. The more I look at this though I think they could be snowflakes so this may end up as a Christmas card! I was pleased to use this cream card stock as I haven't used it for a while.

Our Guest Designer this week is Laura who is super talented and her blog is just full of inspiration, check out Le-Design Boutique and she her wonderful creations.

And our DT have created some fabulous projects so please go and check them out here

Have fun x


  1. Great card, Sandie. I have the same problem with colour challenges - my creative mind goes as blank as the rest of my mind!!

  2. You know how much I love 100% stamped cards. This is gorgeous!

  3. This turned out fabulous, Sandie! I didn't see the snowflakes at first but now I totally do. Have a great holiday! :-)

  4. Great job Sandie! A perfect birthday sentiment with a great addition of the flowers. I also like that you chose to work with cream instead of white.

  5. Fabulous CAS card, Sandie, and the shades of blue you've used are so striking against the cream background. Pretty to the max!! Using these elements for Christmas...oh, the possibilities!!

  6. I saw flowers till you mentioned Christmas, Sandie! Either way, it's gorgeously CAS and fabulous ... love that turquoise EP! Anita :)

  7. As I'm writing this, I hope you are enjoying a lovely sunny break. I like your combo of blue with cream (most of us went with white) and this has a cheerful summer-y look with perfect stamping.

  8. Great to use a brighter blue for the sentiment! It makes it an original card! Enjoy your sunday!

  9. A fab card Sandie, and I love your choice of colours . Bev x

  10. So cute...Love your sweet little posies!

  11. Super great card and I love the extra texture you added!!
