Colour INKspiration Challenge #18 Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Colour INKspiration blog hop. Whether you have just come from my uber-talented friend Kelly Kent or are starting with me, make sure you check out the whole hop. You will be amazed at how a set of colours can be used in so many different ways. So on the colours for this challenge.
Plus your green of choice - optional
These are not my usual colours but I had fun using this new stamp set. You can get if for free. The details are at the end of this post.

A bit of masking to create a Sweet Sugarplum jumper (or sweater for our readers from the other side of the globe).

Some ribbon tabs - just because I could!

Creating the two tone sentiment is so easy. I inked up the solid 'season' stamp with Powder Pink ink then used my Sweet Sugarplum ink pad to ink up the bottom of the stamp. The edge of the ink pad gives you a nice straight edge and colour delineation. Too easy! There is a great outline stamp to make it all pop.

I added some branches in Old Olive underneath my fussy cut sentiment panel. I actually stamped the words on that panel - after I had stamped off several times - so that I could see where to place branches.

And then for extra dimension everything was raised with foam adhesive strips and Stampin' Dimensionals.

You get this fabulous stamp set for free during the months of September and October if your order is over $450. Why not get some friends together and combine your order to take advantage of this great freebie?
