Colourful Cockie CI#27

Colour INKspiration has a new colour inspiration for you every fortnight on a Wednesday at 8:00pm. Tonight is that night! The crew is made up of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all parts of Australia and New Zealand.You are at the blog of Rachel Palmieri, Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrator. I run classes at my home studio in South Morang, Victoria, share Stampin' Up!® products and tools at parties for my customers, coach my lovely team and love to create cards and the occasional 3D project.

This card was such a lot of fun to put together because it reached a bit beyond my comfort zone. I adore these bright colours, but I tend not to layer on the detail as much as this Bird Banter project.

No automatic alt text available.

Birds and flowers come from Bird Banter, the large letters have been stamped on DSP and hand cut. You could, of course use the Large letter dies and just die cut without stamping. They are part of Happy Celebrations, as is 'Birthday to You'. I used a sprig in silver from Petals & More Thinlets - you'll find them with the Petal Palette suite in the Occasions catalogue. The flower on the Pool Party background is from Lots of Lavender, a SALE-A-Bration favourite.

 These balloons are part of Bird Banter too, and the colouring has been done with Stampin' Blends.

What will you make using Melon Mambo, Powder Pink, Island Indigo and Pool Party? You can use very similar colours or just add an embellishment or ribbon the right shade. Don't forget to share it on our Facebook page.
Next stop on this hop is our guest on the design team Hiske MacKay

If you are interested in this opportunity, you can join my team any time that's good for you. However, I must point out that NOW is a particularly good time, because you can order $235 worth of any products on your "wish" list, and pay only $169. Shipping is free on this order, and in addition you get to choose 2 extra stamp sets free (up to a value of $174.00) so I'd be picking a couple of those large expensive sentiment sets like Better Together, Happy Celebrations, Flourishing Phrases, Special Celebrations. Call me if you would like my information.


If you'd just like to purchase Bird Banter, you can shop in my online shop anytime of the day or night. Remember to use the Host Code and I share the bonus with you the next month.
