Colour INKspiration #22


Currently there are two colour challenges on the Colour INKspiration Facebook group challenge.  A Beach Christmas colour scheme for  challenge CI22 and a Nordic Christmas colour scheme for challene CI23.  This post is for colour challenge CI22.

The colours for challenge #23 are: Marina Mist, Sarah Sand, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede

It’s been a while since I’ve made a Card in a Box but I do like them very much.  The were all the rage a few years ago so maybe it is time for a revival.  This project was really quick to make. No stamps, no ink. Just paper.

I am trying to make a concerted effort to use retired items in my project. So this is no different. In this project I am using retired DSP and ribbon.


The box base is made from Sahara Sand card stock. To decorate the box I went through my DSP stash to find paper that went with the colour scheme for this challenge.  I found some Marina Mist DSP which is retired and some DSP with Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White design from the Whole Lot of Love designer series.

I used the Home Town Greetings edgelits dies to cut the house out of Whisper White card stock, which I have backed with Soft Suede card stock to bring out the details

Last thing I added to give was some retired Whisper White ribbon and some rhinestones.


Used in this project:

Paper: Marina Mist DSP stack (retired), Sarah Sand, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz from Whole Lot of Love DSP, Soft Suede



Happy stamping
