And last but not least.....

Well today's inspiration is the last from me this week. Next week is Gill's turn to inspire us ☺
So my projects today are a card, a gift box and a mini album!  They feature the beautiful Calypso Coral colour and the lovely By The Shore dsp and the fab Seaside Shore stamp set.
Warning this is a very photo heavy post so grab a cupper and enjoy 😊 
The gift box is a little suitcase that measures 6" by 4" by 2 1/2". 

The card is a standard A6 card that is decorated inside and out ☺

And finally a mini album made using 5 note card envelopes and 4 coordinating note cards. The note cards are removable to journal on and there are plenty of space for photos all neatly held in one place ☺

Well I hope you've enjoyed this week's inspiration and will join us next week 
Have fun Cary ☺ x

Bloomin' colour....

Today's sample uses the delightful Calypso Coral to highlight the beautiful speciality  DSP called irrisisitbly floral. This paper is designed to be inked over to create your own unique paper. But today I've used it in its natural state for the background but have then coloured some and fussy cut out some of the floral images to use as embellishments

All that glitters....

Metallic is always in but this year copper is very in.
Today's project shows how you can use Calypso Coral with copper and create a warm rich effect.
This card features not only the gorgeous copper foil and embossing powder but also the new ombre ink pad from Stampin ' Up! . It's a very easy way to create a colour wash background effect. I then placed a mask over the dry background and inked through with versamark then applied embossing powder and heated it . 

I am very pleased with the effect rich and warm and rather elegant I think perfect for autumn.

Does colour matter......

Traditional colours for christmas are reds, green,gold rich and cosy but does it have to be?
Well I certainly don't think so ! I love the contemporary colours blues , pinks and silver. But this week's inspiration is all about the Stampin up colour Calypso Coral!  So here you are christmas in Calypso Coral!  I hope you like it
I have also used the lovely sparkly silver ribbon ...
And the most adorable little jingle bells! 
Fun don't you think? 😉

I hope you've enjoyed this week's inspiration and will be joining us next week for more inspiration ☺
Have a good weekend and have fun Cary ☺ x

Pretty in pink....

I'm a bit of a girly girl so I loveee pink! Do you? So today's card is as soft and gentle as yesterday's inspiration  crisp and clean but both are simple.
I'm also a suckered for a bit of glitz! Lol
