Colour Inspiration #16

It's that time again for Kristina Werner's colour inspiration. The colours in this weeks colour inspiration are very pretty and the picture is so cute. I automatically thought baby card but I didn 't go in that direction; anyway here's the picture:

The colours are very vanilla, soft sky, certainly celery and pumpkin pie.

I made 2 cards this week, here's the first:

I've used another new stamp set from the spring mini catalogue soon to be available. This stamp set is called A Beautiful Thing. There is a matching roller that goes with this set and of course I did buy it too - couldn't help myself!!!

I stamped the 3 flowers in certainly celery, soft sky and pumpkin pie on very vanilla cardstock. I used the Stampin' Around Wheel Guide so that the flowers were all in line with each other. I stamped them a couple of times and then used the 3/4" and 1/2" circle punch in each colour for the centres of the flowers. I used the mat pack and a piercing tool to pierce 4 holes in the centre of each flower like the centre of a button. The 2 circles are mounted on dimensionals. I used the mat pack again with the certainly celery marker to put dots as a border around the flowers - you can't really see it in this photo.

The ribbon I used was the wide grosgrain in certainly celery just straight across the card and then very vanilla taffeta ribbon tied in a know over the celery ribbon.

The greeting is from the same stamp set and is stamped in pumpkin pie ink and punched out using the large oval punch.

Here is my second card:

This card was extremely quick to make, it literally only took me 15 minutes to make and I really like how it turned out. I think I prefer it to the first one!

I made a square card 10.5cm x 10.5cm. Here I have used the Die-Cuts - Blooms for the pumpkin flower, also from the spring mini catalogue. These are great for making quick cards. I used celery for the base of the card with a layer of very vanilla. I've used the wide grosgrain ribbon in celery down the side. I cut of piece of soft sky textured cardstock to mount the pumpkin pie flower onto which is mounted using dimensionals. I punched a soft sky circle using the 3/4" circle punch and then used mini glue dots to stick a very vanilla button in the centre.

The greeting is from a stamp set called One Of A Kind from the spring mini catalogue which I stamped in Pumpkin Pie.

I really liked using these colours together and I'm finding these challenges really fun. I hope you like what I've done with these colours and thanks for checking out my blog.
