Welcome to week 24 of the Art With Heart team Colour Creations Showcase!
This week the star of the show is Mango Melody. And do you know, I can't remember EVER using this colour before?
And yet it is such a bright, cheery, pick me up kind of cocktail colour!
When I realised which colour was this week, I had a bit of a panic about what to make with it, but then I saw a stamp set on my shelf which hadn't been opened and used - and it just screamed out to be used with Mango Melody - hmmmmm! Mango cocktails! What a perfect thing in this suddenly humid weather we've been having!
I also grabbed out the leftover bits from my Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin Kit and suddenly I was making way more than one card - so much brightness and fun! The colourful strip along the bottom of this first card is one of the card fronts from the Share Sunshine cards, cut into 1" strips. And I added some sequins out of the kit for a bit of sparkle.
This card contains another 1" strip of card front from the Paper Pumpkin kit, along with the pineapple, black and white polka dot piece and more sequins. The stamp set has 26 pieces for lots of mix and match greetings AND there's a coordinating die set for cutting out those cute cocktails!
The stamp set is photopolymer so it's really easy to line up the words to make a fun background - this one is inked with Mango Melody and every second image is stamped off (or "second generation stamping").
But WAIT!! There are not just cocktail stamps in this set! How could I use the set without also making at least one COFFEE card!?! And how cute and funky are those coffee cups!
I can't believe what a fun colour Mango Melody is, after ignoring it for so long! I really enjoyed designing these cards and putting them together!
See the lovely touch of gold on the pineapple? And here is what the inside of the card looks like:
