Colour INKspiration Challenge Blog Hop – Christmas in July

 
It’s a Christmas in July kind of a day today!

Welcome to Colour INKspiration Challenge number 14 and this week we have a fabulous colour palette to work with courtesy of Tanya Bell!

The crew is kicking off with a Blog Hop this evening and it is great to have Cathy Pinchbeck join us as a guest designer. You’ll see her creation in a few hops.

If you have been hoppin’ along – you will have come from the awesome Elizabeth Gross. What fabulous cards Liz has made this week – as usual!

A reminder that if you are not part of the Colour INKspiration Facebook Group please do join the group. It’s a place where crafters from throughout the world can share their creativity all inspired by a Pinterest Inspired Colour Swatch.

And here’s this week’s colour swatch!

Isn’t the inspiration picture gorgeous?! Loving the combo of Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, Soft Sky, Night of Navy.

I decided these colours would be a great combo for a Christmas in July card and wanted to finally ink up my Carols of Christmas stamp set.

The Carols of Christmas Stamp set is going to be an early release set that everyone will be able to purchase from the 1st August. So if you have any coupon codes from the current Bonus Days promotion, you’ll be able to use those towards buying this set!

Or – if you can’t wait, and want an even better bargain – you can get if for FREE as part of the Christmas in July Promotion from Stampin’ Up!

Back to the card … the sentiment is one of two large stamps in the Carols of Christmas stamp set and I’ve stamped it in Night of Navy onto Soft Sky cardstock. I’ve used the coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits to cut out the border above and below the sentiments and then mounted it onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry card. You can see in the closeup below that I’ve heat embossed part of the sentiment with the Silver Stampin’ Emboss powder. 

You can also see the gorgeous ribbon I’ve used – the silver 3/8″ metallic edged ribbon and the silver mini sequin trim. I’ve also added a few loose sequins to my card front – adhering them with Fine Tip Glue. I like using the Fine Tip Glue for small embellishments as it dries to be non-tacky.

In the close-up below you can see that I have also used some Embossing Paste – which I am loving so much! I coloured it with a couple of drops of Smoky Slate Classic Ink Re-inker, mixed it well with the Palette Knives and then spread it onto a piece of Smoky Slate card stock.

It was smooth when I spread it on the card stock, but I stamped the Sheet Music Background stamp into it while it was still soft to get an impression of music in the paste. I thought this tied in with the carol theme of the sentiment! I hadn’t cleaned the stamp after stamping this background onto the card base in Rich Razzleberry. You can see hints of the Rich Razzleberry in the paste. I did clean it immediately and very thoroughly after getting embossing paste onto the stamp though – you wouldn’t want that setting hard onto a stamp!

You can see the background – tone on tone – n the photo below.

 

And if you are wondering about the extra sparkle on the paste, I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter onto it while it was still damp. It’s been ages since I’ve used Dazzling Diamonds and I’d forgotten how much I love it. I can see some more experimenting coming happening soon with Dazzling Details and the Embossing Paste!

And last but not least – I usually carry something through to the inside of my card and today it was the Rich Razzleberry Sheet Music.

This Sheet Music stamp is absolutely fabulous, and I’m so pleased that Stampin’ Up! has added a music stamp to the product range!

Now hop on over to the talented Lou Kitzelman to see what she has created with these colours. I love, love, love the details in Lou’s card – especially that edge!
