February Color Fusers Blog Hop

Hi there and welcome to my blog.  This month our team is sharing the fabulous color combination that you see above.  I’ve always loved Real Red and Basic Gray so this months assignment excited me.  I especially loved adding Smokey Slate and Powder Pink to the mix.  I must admit I was curious to see what these four colors would look like together because I’ve never combined them before. I love it and I’m sure I will use these colors together often.

I decided to make a gate fold card for you today.  I also wanted to use the Stampin’ Up! Bundle “Petal Palette”.  Everything I’ve seen made with this bundle is gorgeous.  This bundle is so easy to use and all the elements go together perfectly.

To enhance the Smokey Slate cardstock panels I embossed them using the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder and then I rounded every corner.  To round the corners I used the corner rounder that is built into the envelope punch board.

All of the images were cut out using the “Petal Palette” thinlits.  I used Memento Black Ink to stamp all of the sentiments and the bird.  Lastly, I colored in the little bird with Real Red Ink and an Aquapainter.

To dress up the inside of the card, I cut a 1″ strip of Basic Gray Cardstock and embossed it.   Then I cut another trellis image in white and tucked it behind the embossed strip.

The heart was made with a punch that has been discontinued however the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch has a heart image that you could use.

Here are some close-ups of the front panels for you.  Adding glimmer paper to each flower helped them stand out.

Adding pearls added even more glam.

Wink of Stella on the little heart makes it stand out.

Here is another card made with all the same colors and the same bundle.  I just changed it up slightly to make a Sympathy card.

I hope that you enjoyed your visit here.  Now you can hop on over to Jo Anne Hewins blog to see what she made just for you.

Color Fusers January Blog Hop

 

Happy New Year everyone!  I’m so glad that you are visiting today’s blog hop on this first day of 2018.

There is so much to share with you.  The Color Fuser Team is going to show you samples of beautiful cards and 3-D items using the color combination above.

For today’s hop I chose to work with the SWEET SOIREE SUITE.  This suite is gorgeous.  This suite not only has a bundle it has coordinating  embellishments.  In this suite you will find an embellishment kit that is to die for.  The suite also has silver and white bakers twine,  an embossing folder, designer series paper, ribbon,, silver mini gable boxes and shreddie.  Everything looks beautiful together.  With all that product you can’t help but make beautiful works of art.

Now lets talk about my card.  The card base is made from Marina Mist card stock.  Then I added a layer of Whisper White card stock onto the base.  The addition of the Whisper White card stock added a nice boarder to the whole design.  Next I added embossed Silver Foil paper as a third layer.  With the base finished I was ready for a focal point.

For the focal point I selected the cake and cake stand from bundle.   In order to make the cake stand out I had to add one more layer underneath it.  I chose Whisper White card stock again because it’s crisp and clean and it would not compete with the other elements of this design.  Notice though that I embossed this layer across the middle.  I love the folders that come in a pair because you can emboss a small amount of card stock or the whole card.

The sentiment  “Celebrate”  was stamped in Marina Mist ink.  Having the word Celebrate in the left top corner created balance.  The sentiment is very generic so you can use this card for an event that’s worth celebrating.  I really like that versatility.

Lastly I started ( baking ) stamping the cake.  This stamp set is a two step stamp set, so for the first step of the cake I used Soft Sky ink.  For the second step ( the detail of the cake)  I used Marina Mist ink.  The contrast of those two colors is very attractive and allows the images to show through perfectly.  Lastly I used the thinlits to cut everything out.

 

Lets go back to the sentiment CELEBRATE for a moment.  I want you to look closely at the font.   Isn’t the font lovely?  I really really like it.  Most of the other sentiments in the set are in the same font style.  You just can’t go wrong with this bundle.

 

Below is a close up of the cards focal point.  I want you to see all the detail.  The flower topper is layered.  Layering the cake topper makes the cake more realistic.  The vellum bouquet comes from the embellishment kit.   I literally just popped it out of it’s packaging and adhered it down.   A faceted gem on the largest flower seemed appropriate so I added one and yes the gem added the perfect amount of bling.

The Whisper White Organza ribbon flows nicely down the left side of this card.  That ribbon coordinates with everything, I’ve been using it a lot.  It’s a great staple to have.

I’m excited about this bundle and this color combo.  Give these colors a try and have fun hopping on over to my team mates blogs.

As an added bonus I’m sharing a silver gable box that I dressed up with the embellishment kit and the suites designer series paper.

Color Fusers Blog Hop

Welcome everyone!  I’m excited to announce that I have been asked to be part of this fabulous group.  As a member of this team I will be posting A COLOR FUSER idea the first Monday of every month.

This month our blog hop gives you a variety of projects that you can case using Stampin’ Up Colors, Emerald Envy~Cherry Cobbler~Tranquil Tide and Whisper White.

I made this Christmas card using this month’s color fusers colors.  The stamp sets that I used were meant to be used during Halloween, but I wanted to show you how you can continue using them during Christmas.

The sentiments on this card are from this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. I’m here to show you how versatile Stampin’ Up! colors and stamps really are.

The JOY JOY JOY and the chimney are  stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink to coordinate with the card base. JOY is one of the stamps in this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  I dressed up JOY by placing a pearl as the dot on the lower case J. Adding a simple pearl can take your project to another level.

I layered Emerald Envy card stock onto the Cherry Cobbler card base and then began creating my scene on the Whisper White clean slate. The house stamp is from the stamp set ” SWEET HOME”.  I stamped it using Tranquil Tide ink onto Whisper White card stock.  Then I fussy cut it out.  I did the same thing with the door and the window.  I used a striped boarder stamp from he same set and Cherry Cobbler ink to stamp a decorative trim on the house.  Every house needs a chimney so I took the brick fence post from the stamp set “GRAVEYARD GATE” inked it up, stamped it and fussy cut it out too.  Then all I had to do was mount the chimney behind the house.  The post worked as a chimney just as I imagined.  WHOOHOO!

I also wanted to suggest that Santa was sliding down the chimney, so I used a Cherry Cobbler marker and colored the head of the little ghost in the “SWEET HOME” set and stamped it onto Whisper White card stock.  Next I colored it in and added a WHITE PERFECT ACCENT to the tip.  Viola! Santa’s hat.  I then placed the hat at the top of the chimney to complete my vision.

The Spriggs on the gable of the house are from the “Pretty Pines Thinlets”.  I needed the spriggs to stand out so I used Emerald Envy card stock.  They now stand out and coordinate with the layer piece under the Whisper White scene,

The finishing touches were the embossing paste and the dazzling diamonds glitter.  Those two products created snow instantly.

For the inside of the card I used the same thinlits, pearls and colors.  The Merry and Bright sentiment is another stamp from this months Paper Pumpkin.

I hope I’ve encouraged you to combine your stamp sets when creating.  LOOK at your stamps and see what other images pop out at you.

Go out of the box with your colors.  Who would have thought these four colors would look good together?

Here is a close up of the chimney and Santa’s hat.  You can also see the detail of the candy striped trim.  SU paste and glitter are perfect for tis time of year, so grab some.

Stampin’ Up! provides so many ribbons.  This one is our Tranquil Tide 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon.  This ribbon comes in the five In~Colors.  Collect them with time, they add so much to your work.
