Color Inspiration #42

Color Inspiration 42

Hello all!

Sorry about not getting a new Make a Card Monday up yesterday. Unfortunately, switching over to WordPress took longer than I thought. And I still have some kinks to work out, but for the most part, we’re up and running again.

BTW, be sure to go over to to get an avatar assigned to your email address. That way, when you post a comment, there will be a cute little photo of you next your comment. Right now, if you don’t have a gravatar, it shows a generic “shadow person.” :)

Anyhow, this week’s Color Inspiration Challenge is from the same shop as last week’s. This time, it’s a photo of a hat. Isn’t that hat adorable! I love it. :)


Join us: Make a card/scrapbook page/whatever in the colors above. Color Inspiration virgins, please read the Color Inspiration FAQ first.

Deadline: Saturday, February 21 at 7:00 pm MT. You will know when the deadline has past because you will not able to submit a new link through the Mister Linky box. Grab this week’s swatch-only image.

  1. WOW!! The new blog look´s great!

  2. Let’s see if the avatar works for me……

  3. Thanks for the great challenge! I posted my link using Mr Linky! I hope I did it correctly. I tried to view the FAQ’s but the link didn’t appear to be working!

    Have a great day!

  4. I’ve done the gravatar thingie, and found your linky again. Now I’m going to comment to make sure that the gravatar has worked.

  5. GReat color combo!

  6. Whew, that really was a challenge for me. Rust was tough, although I am a color challenge virgin. Looking forward to more stuff on etsy from you, too!

  7. Thank you for the colours!
    Greetings, Ilse

  8. Hi Kristine can you please delete my first entry number 101 as it links to my new post part of my blog and I didnt know how to fix it all the best for your new future

  9. Great colours, I will put something together. I have set up my gravatar so hopefully it will work now :o) It seems like you’ve made some tough decisions lately, but ones that are right for you. Really looking forward to seeing all your new creations as your life takes a new direction x

  10. Hi Kristina,

    thnaks for the inspiration, I will use more of MM and RR in the future I think. Will look forward to next week.


  11. WOW!! I’m so excited to be part of Kristina’s colour challenge! This is my first and well the colour’s are right up my alley!
    Thank you so much Kristina for your honesty and open heart, you have truely inspired me and helped me to keep in touch with what i love not just what i have to do! All the best with this new journey in life, i look forward to hearing more about the exciting road ahead! Smiles Sharnee :0)

  12. Thanks for your colors…..Kiss from Sardinia
    P.S. you are the best!!!

  13. Hey! Your blog is coming along really nice! So excited for the new things that will be coming up on your blog!
    You are the very 1st blog I have been following ever since I was introduced to blogging. You ROCK chic!!


  14. Thanks Kristina for the inspirations. I had fun combining these colors. Cheers!

  15. Wonderful challenge this week Kristina! Have a wonderful weekend!

  16. I did not enter my link? Mister Linky just took my info…hope this worked…new look is great. Diana

  17. Hi Kristina! This color combo was really a challenge for me — until I started cleaning my messy desk and found some inspiration with a squirrel stamp. Then it all came together super quick! Love your new look, especially the banner — yum-o! :)

  18. First time to play; wonder what took me so long? :-D

  19. I posted mine – it has been a while since I could play — had to substitute an orangey color for the rust!
    Thanks for hosting these!

  20. I wonder if the high number of errors had anything to do with auto-fill in Mr. Linky. I did not enter anything, and it remembered the last link I had put it…just a thought…you might see if you can test it too?

  21. such fun colours!! love your new blog look:)

  22. Hi Thanks for the video about posting an entry, I hopefully now have done this correctly, as this was my first entry.

  23. oh this is my first time doing this…I hope i did it right!
    love your new look and love all your stuff….

    good luck with your new adventures…so fun…good for you to have the do something different!

    m :)

  24. Love the new digs! Now let’s see if I did that gravatar thingy right…

  25. i have done another card using these colours here is the card…
    Thanks for another great challenge kristina
