Color Fusers Blog Hop November 2020

 


Hello and welcome to my very first "Color Fusers Blog Hop". I was delighted to be asked to join this group of very talented designers and look forward to sharing my projects with you.

I must admit, my first color challenge was definitely a "challenge" lol. These are not normally colors I would use together so I had to put my thinking cap on. I decided to go with vellum to soften the colors and using the So Much Love Stamp Set.

I started with a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Whisper White Thick card base with a 5 1/4" x 4" mat piece embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I then trimmed a strip of vellum 2 1/2" wide and white heat embossed the roses. To add the color, I turned the strip over and used Shaded Spruce and Poppy Parade dark Stampin' Blends for the roses and leaves. For the little buds, I used the finest Water Painter and picked up the color from the Bumble Bee Stampin' Pad. 

To add a little dimension to the vellum strip, I die-cut the curvy border from the Curvy Dies. I then trimmed a strip of Whisper White Thick to 3" wide and lined up the vellum strip on top to get the positioning of the die, used a little tape to hold the curvy die in position and ran it through my die-cutting machine.

Next, I attached all the pieces together, wrapped the Shaded Spruce Argyle Satin Ribbon around and secured at the back. To finish off the card, I wrapped the Gold Cord around and tied off in a bow and stamped my greeting using Poppy Parade and die-cut with the Tasteful Label Dies, and mounted on the card front.

When I thought I had finished, I realised the roses need a little Wink of Stella to make them pop!

 

Phew! My first challenge is complete and I look forward to next month's colour challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and please continue hopping on over to see what fabulous creation Bonnie has made this month.

 Cheers

Gail
