Colour Combo April Blog Hop



Today I am taking part in another colour challenge, with other Independent Demonstrators, as part of the Colour Combo Blog Hop.  I am based in Cambridgeshire.  In this month’s blog we have been given certain colours to use.

The colours for this Blog Hop are:  Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim and Pacific Point.

Sweet Sugarplum and Dapper Denim are two of the 2016-2018 In Colors and will be retiring at the end of May 2018.

Sometimes after a busy day at work it is nice to come home and retire to my craft room to relax.  Today was such a day and I decided to use of my favourite stamp sets – Flower Shop.  It comes with a matching punch – Pansy Punch.  The Flower Shop stamp set has 5 different flower stamps and today I have chosen to use one that has not been used as much as the others.

One thing I love about Stampin’ Up! is that all the products match, from card stock to ink pads and marker pens.

Here is the card I came up with:

For the base I chose Dapper Denim and mounted a Whisper White base on top of it.  The next layer is Pacific Point, this is a lovely bright blue and to break up the Pacific Point card stock I added a Sweet Sugarplum strip.

I then stamped and punched two flowers in each colour and stuck one on top of the other to make a double flower.  These were placed randomly on the card base.

As I have mentioned above I love how Stampin’ Up! matches their products.  I chose a sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and decided to use matching Marker Pens to colour in the stamp using the 3 colours.  This was then stamped onto Whisper White card stock and backed using Dapper Denim as a border using the Pretty Label punch.

I hope you have enjoyed the card that I have shared with you today.  We do appreciate reading your comments on our posts.
