Colour INKspiration Challenge #46 Blog Hop

I really need to put the breaks on! It's just about the end of November - how did that happen? Oh and hi! See that's how manic my week has been - forgot my manners! Right straight onto our challenge colours - no time to sit around chatting! PS I may or may not be a touch tired and in a weird mood. Nooooooo!

I used these colours to make some very special cards. 2 of our current and one past member of the Colour INKspiration Crew have the honour of being chosen to be on the 2019 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team. It is so fabulous to see the talents of Jackie Aitken, Narelle Farrugia and Rochelle Blok being recognised.

I used one of the bundles from the Stampin' Up! 2019 Occasions Catalogue - Piece of Cake. It was a fun and quick way to make them a celebratory cake that could be posted!

The background was made using the smooshing technique with the Gorgeous Grape and Lovely Lipstick inks. Hands up if you love a good smoosh! Some shiny Rose Metallic Thread added some subtle bling.

While I was at it I also whipped up some thank you cards too. I keep saying that this is a 'minimum effort, maximum effect' bundle ...... because it is! And if you join to be a demonstrator you can order it in December (at a discount) rather than waiting to pay full price in January as a customer. Why would you wait I wonder?
