Colour Challenge – CYCI#152

As I was rummaging through my drawers for the combination of colours for this challenge, I found some pre made element in my drawers – like the embossed Mint cardstock, a precut and scored cardbase in Sahara Sand, the strip of Designer series paper in Turquoise and the ring in Melon Mambo. Obviously left over elements from previous creations, so I added those in to my challenge this week to see how I could incorporate them.

I liked the colour combination this made and was close to the Can You Case It? #152 challenge colours for this week. Amber always has a colour combo up her sleeve. Check them out.

Here is what I created with these elements. A simple but colourful Hello card.

I have missing a few of my stamps of late – you know those ones that sit quietly and patiently on your shelf waiting for you to notice them again. The cute little flower is from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, which is about a year old now but haven’t used them lately.

Here I inked up the little flower using markers to get that coloured in look. I stamped it on some whisper white, which I had pre-punched with my Stitched Shapes framelits and adhered my Melon Mambo ring too. That gave me my boundaries for the stamped images. I added a little hello stamp in Tempting Turquoise to finish off.

Bloomin’ sparkly

I’ve been having some fun with this die over the past week, using it in my class last weekend and other fun projects of late.

I love making wedding cards, it’s a bit like Christmas, it’s one of those occasions where “bling” is never too much!! I CASEd this card from my stamping friend Carly Middleton. She shared this card and I have been wanting to make my own. So when I was asked to make a wedding card for a friend recently, this was my chance.

This is what I made. Similar but different.

I seem to be outlining the banner stamp and frame quite a bit. I did this originally at Christmas when I made the framed decorator piece and a few times since. I guess I like the double shape and lift it gives.

Here is how I do this:

I used the banner stamp and framelit in the usual way – stamp and punch. But then I created the frame for my stamped piece by punching out another full banner in the silver foil and slicing it in half. I adhered this to the top and bottom of my stamped piece, matching them up with an even border.

Next I punched another two flag end pieces out of the foil and fixed that to the sides matching up the flag ends. I think it works well.

Bloomin’ Away

Another love I have in the Occasions catalogue is the Bloomin’ Love bundle. That Bloomin’ Heart thinlit die is just to die for. It bloo-me away – lol (I know, bad pun right?!)

The coordination of these stamps and dies are extraordinary. I love how you can choose to either stamp coordinating flowers directly onto your die cut heart or punch out coordinating flowers and add them on separately to create dimension.

In this project, I’ve used a combination. I’ve stamped the small flower directly onto the punched heart. But then added larger flowers, die cut from Gold foil, over the top.

But can you see the gold glimmer paper peaking out from behind the smaller flower? I used the smaller flower die here and trimmed it to fit. The inspiration for this card came from page 16 of the Occasions catalogue.

This project has been created for The Colour Tree Challenges, TCTC#3, which I am playing along with this week.

TCTC Top Pick

UPDATE: 31 January – I’m very pleased to say this project was the top pick for this weeks challenge over at The Colour Tree.
So very excited!!

Here is what Bronwyn had to say: I just love the stamped Soft Suede background, the intricate heart die with the gold glimmer and foil flowers and the embossed Mint Macaroon centre panel – what a lovely layout to highlight the challenge colours.  Thanks for playing along at TCTC, Rose.
