Kristina’s CI #51

Another week, another Colour Inspiration challenge from Kristina Werner :) This week I persuaded Mama to have a play with it too…it’s so much fun having someone else to craft with all the time! I’m seriously thinking of getting her a blog of her own!

Anyway, the colours this week were a little tricky: Chocolate, Rose, Mustard and White. Mustard for me is a bit like the dreaded Pumpkin Pie….hard to know just what to do with it! So, as it’s Autumn down here I decided to go with that, as the colour reminds me of some of the Autumn foliage. Here’s the inspiration pic:

And here’s what I came up with:


I’ve used Trendy Trees, Choc Chip, Rose Red, Whisper White and More Mustard CS and inks (not white ink though!), as well as VersaMark for the swirls on the Chocolate card base. The Rose flower comes from the Flower Fusion felt flowers and the button (nekkid and all) is Mustard. The ribbon is the wide double stitched Choc Chip.

And here’s Mama’s contribution (oh yeah, her name is Coral just in case you were wondering…lol)


She was brave and went with Mustard for the card base. She’s used Embrace Life for the flower and background, but I’m not sure where that sentiment came from…I’d go ask her but she’s not feeling well today and is having a nap :) The ribbon is Choc Chip and I’m also not sure where the tiny butterfly came from either…but it’s really cute IRL.

OK, that’s it for today. I’m having a bit of an off day with my back and I’m going to go have a lie down too…I love being on “sick leave” when it means I can go for a nap whenever I want :)

Hope your Friday is fabulous,

Kristie, both these cards are really pretty. Yes that colour combo reminds me of autumn too - love it.

Yes, both are VERY pretty! And I am quite impressed with how you got your trees all aligned so nicely. Even with a SAMJ I cannot do it that well! LOL!

That K Werner is a color coordinating genius. I NEVER would come up with that combo and I LOVE it!!!

You and your lovely Mama did a wonderful job, though I must admit I am a big fan of those trendy trees. I will order those eventually :)
