Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Challenge CS50

February 12, 2018

I saw a card sketch challenge the other day and created a card but have spent a couple of days trying to find the challenge again.  I have since found it at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration but the challenge has ended, which doesn’t matter but I am glad I found it because I thought I had made it up!  Anyway here is the card.  I attached a piece of Tranquil Tide card across Whisper White card.  I attached a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon over the Tranquil Tide card and attached the panel to scored and folded Chocolate Chip card.  I attached a strip of Chocolate Chip card to the card front using dimensionals.  I also attached a piece of True Gentleman Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of the Chocolate Chip card.  The designer series paper has dimensionals under the left hand side so that it would sit properly onto the Chocolate Chip Card.  I stamped the car image from the Guy Greetings stamp set onto  Whisper White card using Basic Black Archival ink.  The image is coloured using Tranquil Tide and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Markers.  The stamped image is attached to  Chocolate Chip card and then the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped “world’s greatest” and “husband” onto Whisper White card using Chocolate Chip ink.  These greetings are also from the Guy Greetings stamp set.

I love the clean and simple lines of the card but I also love the colours.  The pop of Tranqil Tide card gives it just the right amount of colour to lift the Chocolate Chip.  Do you struggle to match colours when you are creating?  Well so do I!  However, the easiest way to come up with a colour combination is to take inspiration from the colours used in Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper.  The colours for this card were selected from the ones used in the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.

Bye for now,
