Colour INKspiration Creative Challenge #06



Welcome back crafters


#Thatsthetag #Loveyourmum #motherslove #KOCreationscards #Inspiredbylove #Thankyou #ColourINKspiration #CI06 #Butterflies

I am loving life right now :)...
I was chosen to be a guest designer for Colour INKspiration... 


A wonderful Facebook group that get together once a fortnight and work on a new colour swatch for us. 
They then blog their creativity in a hop to inspire our creativity with.
And I am part of the hop!! Whoot Whoot :D
HAPPY DANCE ME lol
Such an honour to be part of this.
Thank you Bronwyn x

Here is the colour swatch for this fortnight.
Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Gold Foil
How fabulous are those colours, right!

My Mum does a fair bit for me, as Mums tend to do. She is my number one fan!
My Mum supports my creative habit, attends all of my classes that I teach and helps me with the kids when needed too.
So, to let her know how much she is appreciated, I have made her a little gift using the colours above...I am going to fill the bag with chocolates :) she loves choccies.
It doesn't have to be mothers day to let your Mum know how much you love her, does it? 
No!

This was the perfect opportunity for me to try out the 'That's the Tag' bundle and the 'Gift Bag' Punch Board.

Here are my projects.

Timeless Tags

For my Mum

#Thatsthetag #Loveyourmum #motherslove #KOCreationscards #Inspiredbylove #Thankyou #ColourINKspiration #CI06 #Butterflies


I used 1 sheet of  'By The Shore' DSP. The Calypso Coral dots in lines was my chosen pattern. 
This was just perfect to make my Gift Bag from and then try to build up the other colours with my tag and corresponding layers.


#Thatsthetag #Loveyourmum #motherslove #KOCreationscards #Inspiredbylove #Thankyou #ColourINKspiration #CI06 #Butterflies


For the tags on both projects, I used Gold Foil for the backing. 
I used Night of Navy for the front of the tag, with the butterfly cut out. This enabled the gold foil to peep though nicely.
I tied both both the gold and night of navy tags together with metallic gold thread, so they could swing loosley and apart from each other too.

I added a gold embossed calypso coral flower with a gold metallic shape to carry those colours through a little more.

To add the Pool Party colour in the mix I added a banner behind the tags with a bow, just below the gold binder clips which hold everything in place..

 Did you notice the little butterflies on the card???
They were the waste from the cut out on the tag!...I hate to throw things away and I feel it adds a bit of depth to the card as well as adding another interest point :)

Crazy Crafter's Blog Hop with RACHEL TESSMAN


#Popofpink #Washitape #Perpetualbirthdaybook #Happycelebrations #KOCreationscards #Handmade #Celebrate

Welcome back Crafter's

Image may contain: text



Today we are all hopping along with Rachel Tessman and CASEing some of Rachel's fantastic projects..

You are here with my (Kim Oliver) I will have a list of participants for you to keep following the hop to see more gorgeous projects all CASEd from Rachel Tessman's work.

My CASE today is this fabulous birthday book of Rachels that she made using some items from a Paper Pumpkin kit (we don't get these here in Australia)
We live in hope that one day this will change for us Aussies!



 As we are not able to get the Paper Pumkin kits here, I CASEd this birthday book using DSP, framelits, stamps, window sheets and foil sheets
 As it is coming closer to that time of year when our DSP designs are renewed and updated, I thought this would be a perfect project and time to help use up some thoroghly gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP) I had stashed away and some washi tape (DWT) too!

I am trying my hardest to overcome my hoarding habit!!!

I used the irregular circle stamp from the Happy Celebrations stamp set and stamped circles in groups.
I then stamped the celebrations sentiment in versamark and applied gold embosing foil. I heated it with the heat tool to make it shiny. It stands out nicely against the bright circles.

I used my computer to make my numbers and lines for each month. I alternated the colours between Pink Pirouette and Whisper White. These pages were glued ontop of the DSP and then I added contrasting Washi tape top and bottom of each page. I added a blank page for notes or even just doodeling lol
Most of us doodle in our note books at some stage or another.
I know I do :)

Rachels birthday book, had silver numbers from the paper pumkin kit for each month, The numbers were sitting on the monthly tabs...I went to use the number framelits that Stampin' Up! have, but they were a little large for this job. 
So, for now I have left this area black...
When I work out who I am giving this too, I will personalise it to suit them along the tab areas.

To finish my birthday book, I tied ribbon and twine around the binders. This added even more of those wonderful bright colours to the front cover....
