Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: Favourite Colour Combination


Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects using our favourite colour combination. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects.

I found it way too hard to choose just 1 favourite colour combination, as I have sooooooo many. However for today's card I was in a bit of a green mood at the time I made it, so chose some greens and neutrals that I really enjoyed using together - Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake (in the form of Linen Thread).

My layout was inspired by a card created by Patty Bennett. If you are interested, you can click here to check out Patty's original.




My card uses items from the Tropical Escape Suite: Tropical Chic stamp set, Tropical Thinlits & the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.

There is a little cameo from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and co-ordinating Bouquet Bunch thinlits, in the form of the small "For You" tag.

Hope you like it.

Fable Friends | Aussies Who Love Stampin' Up! Challenge #025


Hi and thanks for visiting :)

Today marks the start of our latest fortnightly challenge over on the Aussies Who Love Stampin' Up! Facebook Group.

Our latest challenge #AWLSU025 is a Technique challenge. Our technique for this challenge is Embossing.



Myself and the other group admins will share our creations to start off each challenge and hopefully help kick-start and inspire your creativity.


If you live in Australia and are interested in participating in our fortnightly challenges, click here to join the group :)


I have teamed this fortnights challenge with 2 other challenges: a sketch challenge from Global Design Project #GDP178 and a colour challenge from Color Throwdown #ctd532.



I have also included my card in the Stamp Ink Paper Designer's Choice Challenge #188.


********************************************




My colour palette (which was inspired by Color Throwdown #532) consists of Balmy Blue, Call Me Clover, Flirty Flamingo, Soft Suede & Whisper White.

This gorgeous bunny from the Fable Friends stamp set (available in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue) was stamped in Memento Ink, cut out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then coloured in using Stampin' Blends (Balmy Blue - Dark & Light , Flirty Flamingo - Dark & Soft Suede - Light).

The Balmy Blue layer was run through the Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder.

My Congratulations sentiment comes from the First Frost stamp set (which was carried over to the 2019 Occasions Catalogue) and was heat embossed using White Emboss Powder on a scrap of Call Me Clover cardstock.

Such a simple and super adorable card. Hope you like it :)
