Welcome to Week 5 of our Colour Creations Showcase where members of Claire's Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team are taking a journey through the whole Stampin' Up! colour range in alphabetical order.
Colour 5 is Blushing Bride - which I guess you either love or hate! LOL
I'd be the first to confess it's not a pink I have ever been particularly drawn to as it's not a pure clean pink, it has grey undertones making it look quite dirty next to some of our fresh crisp colours. And yet last year we had the beautiful Magnolia Lane paper which coordinated beautifully with it. And this year at a push it works well as a tone on tone colour with some of the In Good Taste and Peony Garden Designer Series Paper packs, proving it is quite a versatile colour!
Last week I worked with the Gorgeous Posies Card Kit for our Blackberry Bliss showcase. The card kit also features Blushing Bride and try as I might, I could not step away from it!
A couple of weeks ago, my dear friend Sharon Davern who is also participating in the Colour Creations Showcases posted a Bermuda Bay card demonstrating the Double Open Joy Fold card - there's one I had never heard of before! (Click on the card name to see it).
I loved Sharon's card so much, I straight away wanted to use one of the card fronts in the Gorgeous Posies Kit to do a Blushing Bride version!
Now I want to make a hundred of them! So cute!
I used one card front and one label from the card kit, and teamed it with some extra Gold Foil Card, Blushing Bride card, the Blushing Bride woolly texture paper from In Good Taste DSP pack, some Blushing Bride stamping on Whisper White for the panels to write on and I stamped the front sentiment in Calypso Coral - just because my Blushing Bride ink pad stamps greetings a little too light to read.
Oh my gosh, how good is all that colour coordination?

Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think of this gorgeous card, and check the supply list below to see what I have used.
See you next week with Bumblebee!
