Card Making Colour Challenge
October 15, 2015
Welcome to the Art With Heart Team Blog Hop for October. This month we have a colour challenge for you.
So, what did I come up with using those colours??
When I saw the colour selection, I immediately thought of our Project Life Card Collections ( #PLxSU ) and accessory packs.
And given that one of the colours is Mint Macaron which I wore to a recent family wedding, I decided I would (finally) have another play with the Project Life pockets and cards.
I have used cards from three #PLxSU collections :
- Moments Like These Card Collection and Accessory Pack
- Hello Baby Boy Card Collection
- Hello Baby Girl Card Collection
I have a confession . . . I think Pink Pirouette is a bit of an insipid colour - far too light to stamp with, so when I discovered the Project Life Hello Baby Girl Card Collection contained Blushing Bride instead of Pink Pirouette, the rebellious streak in me fist pumped the air and called "Yeah! Baby!!"
I have embellished with extra flowers, hearts and stamps from Pictogram Punches and Hello Life stamp sets and I have used two of the #PLxSU stamp sets - Moments Like These and Hello Baby to stamp the wedding date.
As you can see from some of the pockets, they are a little empty - I would like to get a couple more photos printed and pop in just a couple more different snaps from the happy day to fill the spaces - I'm thinking the bouquets and some of the details of the reception.
And you may have noticed on the first two pages, I also stamped onto the #PLxSU cards using our amazing Alphabet Rotary Stamp, so I could spell out the name of the venue and the bride and grooms names.
I just love how many cards there are to choose from in the Moments Like These, Hello Baby Boy and Hello Baby Girl PL card collections which contain Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder.
You could be wondering - Okay, where is the Blackberry Bliss??
All of the stamped headings, journalling and matting of a couple of the photos uses Blackberry Bliss. (Yes, I know, depending on what device you're on, it can look like Basic Black instead, but I reassure you, it's our lovely dark purple).
I just love these colours together.
Now, I must let you move on in the blog hop - but before I do, have you heard about the GREAT opportunity to earn more Stampin' products as a party hostess (or get a greater discount on your Stampin' Up!
