Welcome to the Colour Combo monthly blog hop where you are given 3 colours to use for your project. This month we have been given the colours Petal Pink, Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. Petal Pink and Balmy Blue are 2 of our new colours following our recent colour revamp.
This month I decided to use the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and the Bouquet Bunch Framelits dies as I ordered them a while ago but have not yet to use them.
I chose to have a Night of Navy card stock mat layer, then a Balmy Blue card stock mat layer. The next layer is Whisper White card stock which has been embossed using the Tufted Dynamic textured impressions embossing folder.
For the sentiment I used the ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. This was stamped using Night of Navy Ink onto Petal Pink card stock. This was then die cut using the Square Stitched Shapes Framelits. Frames were also cut out frames using Balmy Blue and Night of Navy card stock and the Square Stitched Shapes Framelits .
Finally I die cut some bunches of flowers, leaves and a bow using scraps and added a rhinestone to the bow to finish it off.

This is a global blog hop and you have just arrived in England. I hope you enjoy my birthday cards.
If like me you have bought stamp sets but not quite got round to using them, well, Graceful Garden was one of those that I had. I chose the roses as in England most of our roses start blooming in our gardens.
Here are the two cards I came up with.
This card is a basic A6 card base with a mint macaron card stock mat layer. I stamped the rose onto a Whisper White mat layer using Black Memento Ink. I used Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry watercolour pencils to colour in the rose and blended together using the blender pen. The leaves were colouring in using Old Olive watercolour pencil.
I edged the rose petals and tops of the leaves with Wink of Stella to give it a slight shimmer.
The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set in Mint Macaron to match the mat layer. I finished off the card with 3 Rhinestones.
This card style is a new one that I was shown at a recent team meeting. For this card I used Basic Black, Mint Macaron and Whisper White card stock to make mat layers on both front sides of the card. I stamped the sentiment from Picture Perfect Birthday, in Black Memento Ink.
The roses and rose leaves are also from the Graceful Garden stamp set and are stamped in Black Memento Ink and coloured in using the same colours as card 1. I then fussy cut them out and arranged them onto the whisper white mat layer.
I hope the two cards you’ve seen here on my blog today have inspired you & brightened your day.

I am so excited to be taking part in this global blog hop to celebrate Kelly Kent’s birthday. I am based in a little village in Cambridgeshire and after being a Stampin’ Up! customer for 9 years I decided to sign up as a SU Demonstrator to share all the lovely products that are available.
Everyone loves a birthday and for this blog I wanted to showcase a set of cards that anyone could make on a small budget, using card stock, one stamp set, one embossing folder and a set of ink pads.
Here is the set of cards:
I love our new 2018-2020 In Color range, these colours are available for the next 2 years. They are so vibrant and as you can see mix and match well together.
For all of the cards I have used a Whisper White card base, an In Color mat layer, a strip of Basic Black card stock, In Color Ink pads, Sequin Embossing Folder and Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.
I do hope you have enjoyed these birthday cards and are inspired to try the 2018-2020 In Colors.
