Today I wanted to share with you a card I created for the Colour INKspiration Challenge #74. The colour combination for this challenge is Night of Navy, Whisper White, Basic Grey and Mango Melody and was inspired by the following image…

My project uses the Stampin’ Up! Well Dressed Stamp Set and Well Written Dies. I decided to use the key image from the Stamp Set to make a Congratulations card which would be suitable for someone moving in to a new home or passing their driving test.
Let’s make it…
The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and this is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Night of Navy cardstock. The main card front is a slightly smaller again piece of Whisper White cardstock.
I have stamped the key image in Night of Navy and Basic Grey ink all over the card front. This is then adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
The sentiment piece is created by layering a Whisper White cardstock circle onto a Night of Navy cardstock circle (using the 2″ and 2.25″ Circle Punches respectively). The sentiment itself is cut from Mango Melody cardstock using the Well Written Dies.
To add an extra little touch of the beautifully bright Mango Melody, I coloured a length of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using the Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. I adhered this to the card front using Mini Glue Dots and then adhered the sentiment piece over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I think it’s so important to look closely at your stamp sets and think about the less obvious project that you could make with them. For example, the Well Dressed stamp set is great for traditionally masculine cards but that is not the only use for it. Not all of the images are ‘masculine’ and its much more versatile than you may think at first.
