Colour Inskpiration for Petal Palette #CI29

 Hello ๐Ÿ˜Š
Welcome to today's post.

I am sharing with you a gorgeous old world colour palette from Colour Inkspiration

Here is this fortnights colour Palette.
Do you see why I am thinking old world charm?
I find inspiration in all sorts of places, these colours reminded me of some very old paper that I used to have many years ago. I had a little go at recreating the old world feel of that paper in my project.

Here is my creation using this gorgeous colour palette


#kocreationscards #wedding #engagement #cardmaking #petalpalette #colourinkspiration #roses #oldworldcharm #CI29 #stampinup

For my project I used a combination of Stampin' Up! ink pads and Stampin' Write Markers along with Aqua Painters.

Items Used

  • Card Stock : A4 Crumb Cake, A4 Thick Very Vanilla and 14.5cm x 10cm Chocolate Chip and scrap piece for sentiment.
  • Bundles: Petal Palette Clear-Mount 145974
  • Ink Pads: Blushing Bride, Garden Green and Chocolate Chip
  • Pearl Basic Jewels
  • Stampin' Blends: Dark Crumb Cake and Bronze.
  • Aqua Painter.
  • Adhesives: Foam Adhesive Strips, Multi Purpose Liquid Glue (tombow)

Basic Instructions

  1. Place A4 Crumb Cake on Stampin' Trimmer in a landscape orientation and score at 14.9cm. Turn and cut at 10.5cm . Fold both pieces on score line and burnish. You will now have two card bases 14.9cm x 10.5cm. Keep one aside for front focal die cut.
  2. Cut 1 piece of Chocolate Chip card stock at 14.5 x 10 cm. Cut two more pieces, 1 at 2.3cm x 14.2cm and another at 5.1cm x 14.2cm
  3. Cut 1 piece of Very Vanilla card stock at 14.1 cm x 9.6 cm. Cut two more pieces, 1 at 2.1cm x 14.2 cm and another at 4.9cm x 14.2cm. Have another 10cm x 10cm piece on hand ready for stamping the extra rose image.
  4. Layer the two strips of Very Vanilla onto the Chocolate Chip leaving the edge showing along one full length.
  5. Colour rose image stamps with Blushing Bride ink pad and then colour the leaves with the Stampin' Write marker Garden Green. Huff on stamp and then stamp images left of the centre line on Very Vanilla layer. Repeat this step for the extra rose image on the spare 10cm x 10ccm Very Vanilla. Die cut with thinlits and bigshot.
  6. Colour images with matching inks and Aqua Painters. Note I also coloured the background area with a light cover of Chocolate Chip.
  7. Adhere the stamped Very Vanilla layer to the Chocolate Chip layer. Adhere the two strips of layered Choc Chip and Very Vanilla to the front of the stamped image with foam strips.
  8. Die cut the lattice from the put aside piece of Crumb Cake.
  9. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark onto scrap piece of Choc Chip, dust with White embossing powder. Heat to melt. Die cut with label thinlit in bundle.
  10. Layer rose with lattice and sentiment over stamped images.
  11. Colour pearls with Stampin' Blends Dark Crumb Cake and Bronze and adhere into desired position.

I am sooo in love with how this card looks finished. Having the paper effect behind the raised panels and then using the same floral image as a focal bought it all alive.
