Probably my most used colour, is this week's feature in the Art With Heart - Colour Creations Blog Hop.
Crumb Cake is such a useful colour! I use it a great deal with traditional Christmas colours, it makes an awesome neutral colour for a baby card if you want to make a non-gender specific baby card in advance, its great for masculine cards, and it's just an all-rounder when needing a neutral colour on any project.
I started this week by taking two card front size pieces of Crumb Cake cardstock and embossing them with the Seashells 3D embossing folder.
Then I gently rubbed Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride ink pads onto the raised side of one of the pieces, then spritzed it with water (thoroughly) to allow the colours to soften and bleed into each other.
Once that piece had dried, I die-cut it with the Seaside Seashells die, making sure to line the image up carefully, then ran it back through with the embossing folder again, to really make that piece nice and textured.
So I ended up with one original piece, and one slightly tinted die-cut piece.
I used a Crumb Cake base card and layered both pieces onto that, lining them up carefully and using lots of Dimensionals to make all the bits stick up, then added a simple label, with a scrap of the lovely silver mesh ribbon under it.
The oval label die-cut shape is from the Beautiful Shapes Dies pack - I love how it has that quirky sketched line inside the edge of the die-cut. I stamped the greeting in Soft Suede ink and gently sponged it with a combo of Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride inks.
Despite all the layers and details, this was an amazingly fast card to make - because of the awesome Stampin' Up! coordinating tools. And I just love that with ONLY Crumb Cake card stock and a couple of ink pads, I have a beautiful card.
