COLOUR COMBO BLOG HOP – July

Hello and Welcome !

I’m back again today with our talented group of Global Demonstrators, sharing this months Colour Combo Blog Hop, featuring projects that incorporate Petal Pink, Real Red & Granny Apple Green.

If you have just joined me from Elisabeth’s Blog or as one of my followers, a big warm English welcome to you. My Colour Combo share today features Above The Clouds stamp set.

Getting started

When I create for these types of Blog Hop, I often don’t know where to start so, first of all I start with a base card and a mat layer in each colour, then ‘play’ until I like what I see.

Initially my first thoughts for this combination turned to Christmas, but then I decided to search for a sketch to get me started.

Granny Apple Green base card

I started by attaching one panel of each colour to a mat layer on a coordinating card base.

Petal Pink base card

The White mat layers were embossed using Scripty 3D Embossing Folder #149634 and attached to base card. I love the detail this creates, it’s so crisp and clean looking.

Next I added another square panel to the centre and then strips were added, one end being snipped to form a banner end.

Real Red base card

The hot air balloon embellishment was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White card #106549, using Gray Granite ink pad #147118 and Above the Clouds stamp set #149404 then punched out using the Hot Air Balloon punch #149520.

Here is a close up of the finished embellishment, mounted on Stampin’ Dimensional 3D Foam pads.

To finish I added a knot from Basic Gray 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon #147656 secured with a Mini Glue Dot #103683. A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels #144220 added a bit of ‘bling’.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today. We would love you to leave a quick comment before hopping to Tricia’s Blog to see what she has to share with you today.

    • Thank you, the layout started me off but I tried with various circles that didn’t just do anything. The Hot Air balloon needed christening and so I tried it and liked how it turned out !
