Colour Combo Blog Hop: June 2020

Here we go again! It’s time for the monthly Colour Combo Blog Hop. This month I’m so excited because I got to use brand new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Products on my project! On top of using brand new product I love this colour combo!

Normally, I would pair a more saturated or bolder green with Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight because they are in the Bright color family, but this called for Soft Sea Foam and I think it’s perfect! One of my favorite parts about participating in color challenges is getting to see unexpected combinations come together.

I used the new Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set for the focal image on this card. Even though this set is a photopolymer stamp set I recommend using the Stamparatus with this set. The main image is large and may need to be stamped a second time to ensure even pressure. After I stamped a the main image and added the center and leafy accents I used my Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut my stamped images and the Soft Sea Foam frame.

I used the new A Grand Kid Stamp Set for the sentiment. I love the font used for “Congratulations”. This is Flirty Flamingo stamped on Daffodil Delight cardstock. I used dimensionals behind the Soft Sea Foam frame and the Daffodil Delight banner and added 3 Rhinestones for extra sparkle! Below is a list of what I used to create this card.

Colour Combo Blog Hop: May 2020

Thank you for stopping by today, I’m so happy to be participating in another Colour Combo Blog Hop! My favorite part about this hop is seeing the different interpretations of the combo.

I created this card using one of my favorite floral set from the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, Beautiful Friendship. I find that this stamp set is my go to when I need to make a thoughtful card and right now we all need a little more thoughtfulness! The sentiment is from Tasteful Textures and can’t we all agree it’s important to take time to feed our souls!

I stamped the largest flower image in Crumb Cake ink stamped off once to give it an even more subtle imprint. Then I stamped the rose trio image once in full strength Calypso Coral and then again, but twisted to offset the image. I added in Soft Sea Foam leaves because you can’t use this set without the leaves! Finally I stamped the sentiment from Timeless Textures in Gorgeous Grape.

Normally, I would add sparkles (hello, it’s in the name) or embellishments to my cards but this card didn’t seem to call for any rhinestones or pearls. If you want to make this card I’ve listed the products I used below. I also have a variation on this card here.

Again, thank you so much for stopping by today and I encourage you to click the next button to continue on this hop. The creators who participate are amazing and you should totally check out what they are sharing!

Colour Combo Blog Hop: March 2020

Hi Everyone! I’m so happy to be able to participate in this monthly Colour Combo Block Hop! It helps me to see colors that I wouldn’t normally use working together.

To create the pattern on my stitched rectangles I used a baby wipe wrapped around a clear block. I dotted ink along the edge of baby wipe and brushed it over whisper white cardstock. Then I die cut and arranged them on my card front. I love this technique for when I can’t find DSP that coordinates with my project.

Colour Combo Blog Hop: January 2020

Welcome to the first Colour Combo Blog Hop of the new year! Thank you so much for joining us this month. If you’ve come here from Sandra’s blog make sure you continue on the hop and leave love with each creator.

I’ve been trying to participate in as many challenges and blog hops as I can to help build traffic to my blog, but mostly to help me use my stash of supplies! I’ve always been a craft collector and more recently I’ve started to be more of a crafter!

I created this card using a brand new bundle from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog called So Sentimental Bundle. The stamp set has a bunch of really great sentiments and the dies (called Stitched So Sweetly Dies) have the stitched scallop rectangles and the stitched labels. I know that I will be using this stamp set and these dies for so many cards!

Below is the list of all the items I used to create this card! If you click on one it will take you to my store. If you don’t already have a demonstrator in the US I would be delighted to help you.

Please continue on the blog hop by clicking the next button above. Don’t forget to leave a note of love for each crafter as you stop by.

December Colour Combo Blog Hop

I’m back today with a card to share using the December Colour Combo Blog Hop combination! I’m so thankful for the opportunity to participate in blog hops and challenges during the busy Holiday season because it helps me get into my craft room to create when I would otherwise find an excuse to be busy with something else!

My card for you today is a CASE from the 2019-2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog that I have been wanting to make since I saw it launch in June! You can see the original on page 76 of the AC. I obviously changed the colors to fit this challenge and I now love it even more!

I used Early Espresso to stamp the heart image and the sentiment. Then I used Stampin’ Write Markers in Petal Pink and Merry Merlot (and Pear Pizzazz) to color in the flowers on the heart image. Once I assembled my card I used some Heart Epoxy Droplets as a finishing touch.
