Colour Combo March Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Today I am taking part in an Colour Combo Blog Hop.  This blog hop takes place on every 2nd Wednesday of each month.  Active demonstrators from all over the world are invited to come up with a project using three colours.  This month’s three colours are Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black

I decided to use ‘Petal Palette, a new set from the Spring Summer Catalogue (page 23) and design a card.

Option 1

For my first card I have used a Basic Black A5 base for the card, then layered a Pear Pizzazz card base onto Daffodil Delight card base.  By using the leaf stamp and a Basic Black ink pad I stamped two sets of leaves.  I took a length of Daffodil Delight ribbon (from the annual catalogue) and wrapped it around one end of the card bases.  Then I stamped and die cut the set of flowers and leaves which I coloured in using a Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight marker pen.  I love these pens as they have a brush end and a fine pen end. Once this was coloured in I then stuck it onto the card using stampin dimensionals.  Finally I stamped the Congratulations sentiment and die cut it out.  This was also stuck on using stampin dimensionals.

I could not decide what way round to have the colours so I had to make a second card.

Option 2

For this card I swapped over the colours of the base card.  Again the leaves and the flowers were stamped and coloured as in card 1.  I decided to stamp the Thank You sentiment and sponged Pear Pizzazz over it.  I added a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock and stamped the dots in Pear Pizzazz to which I stuck the sentiment to.

Finally I added another large flower to each card to make it more 3D and added some Wink of Stella to the leaves and the main flower.

I hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog.   I hope that these will help to inspire you to try this colour combination for your next project.

One event that I help my Upline, Sandra Roberts, out is the Sincerely Yours craft fair at Thetford.  This year the first one was in January, so to ensure that there were loads of samples and display items, a couple of Sandra’s demos spent the day together working on a number of samples.

One 3D project we worked on could not be shared as it was also one of Sandra’s retreat projects.

I love the colours that Stampin’ Up! produce especially the Melon Mambo which you will see that I have chosen for my business colour.  With this in mind I decided that as I was also holding a Perennial Birthday all day class that I would use the same set and produce my own display samples.
