InspireINK April Colour Challenge Blog Hop Tutorial

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well.  This card was made as part of a blog hop that I took part in yesterday. I do urge you to go and check it out as there are lots of inspirational projects there. We had a Tic Tac Toe colour challenge. This is where you have 9 different colours in the grid and you can chose a line of three in any direction. I could have gone for something completely different and then decided nah! The card design I originally made for another colour challenge on the Facebook page Stampin' For All where I am a design team member. I liked the card design so much I decided to recreate it using the colours for this challenge.

Measurements and Materials


  • Standard C6 card base made from Thick Whisper White
    • 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
    • scored and folded in half
    • 4 1/8" x 5 7/8"
  • The card base was stamped using the circle stamps from Beauty Abounds
    • The larger was stamped using Highland Heather
    • The smaller was stamped using Mossy Meadow
  • 3 butterfly duets were stamped in Black berry Bliss Ink
  • They was then filled in using full strength Blackberry Bliss on the bottom of the wings and stamped off for the top
  • Mossy Meadow was used for the bodies
  • They were punched out and 2 large butterflies and 3 small were curled and stuck on the edges for the frames
  • The sentiment is from Butterfly gala and was stamped in Blackberry Bliss
  • This was cut out using the second smallest rectangle
  • A frame was created in Black Berry Bliss using the same rectangle and the smallest one
    • This enabled the frame to stick to the sentiment base
  • Another frame was cut in Highland Heather, this frame was thicker so the inner rectangle was 2 sizes smaller. 


Now watch the video tutorial to see how the card was made :-)
