Color Inspiration- Have You Tried This?

Color Inspiration

Color Inspiration is one of my biggest puzzle pieces when I sit down to create.

Once I know the stamp set I’m going to work with I love to go through my ink pads and play with the colors to see what I can come up with.  I like to browse my Pinterest Board of color as well, but sometimes it’s just as easy to sit some colors in front of me and see what’s calling my name.


My card today is way out of my normal color wheel and I hope you will try these colors on a project yourself.  I love how the Mint Macaron looks with the Blackberry Bliss and the Crumb Cake ALWAYS goes with everything.

If you are a fan of balloons, the stamp set Balloon Builders is for you.  There are tons and tons of balloon animals you can create with this set but lazy me kept it pretty simple…

Wait for it…

Yes.  I stamped a plain balloon.

I started to get crazy but here is the problem….


Ya know the noises that the balloons make when the clown is making the animal balloons? It freaks me out.


Just thinking about the clown (not a fan) and then the twisting of the balloons….. AHHHHH! FREAK OUT.


I stamped a plain balloon and I kinda like it.

The greeting is perfect for my teenage girl.  I thought it described her to a tee.  This will be a great card for her friends birthdays that are upcoming.  Teenagers, College students… this is a perfect set for them.

Tips and Tricks 

I stamped most of the balloons directly onto the Typeset Designer Paper and a few I stamped onto a scrap piece of the Typeset and punched using the Balloon Bouquet Punch. How fun is THAT?

I added a Linen Thread bow onto the main balloon and stuck a piece of Linen Thread behind the balloon to create the string for it.

The sequins came from the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit.  I love the colors of these sequins and they give off a purple hue when next to the Blackberry Bliss ink.  I stamped the balloon with the greeting onto Very Vanilla so I could make the greeting pop a little more than it being on the Typeset DSP.
