Colour Creations - Melon Mambo

Welcome to Melon Mambo week with the Colour Creations Blog Hop!
HeaderEach week, some of my stamping friends from the Art With Heart stamping team in Australia get together on a Wednesday night to feature one of the Stampin' Up! colours.

We are gradually working our way through the alphabet! And tonight we have the boldest strong pink for you, so I have toned it right down on a white on white card, so you are just getting that POP of pink.

Melon Mambo 2

I have chosen to use the Framed Florets bundle which is a new release stamp and die set, putting it with the Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder

Melon Mambo

The greeting stamp and leaf background are from the Cup of Tea stamp set, stamped in Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green.

My second card has the extra layer of oval dies, and I brushed the embossed card front with Melon Mambo ink using a Blending Brush. I also used a few extra pearls, and mounted the card front on  Melon Mambo base card.

Such beautiful cards, Kathryn. The first card is my stand-out favourite. I LOVE how you paired that embossing folder with the Fitting Florets bundle. I also love that you used lots of white space, as Melon Mambo is such a strong colour. Beautifully done!

Kate Morgan

Kathryn, you are the 2nd person to use the Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder and I can't believe how stunning it is. I love how you placed it behind the ovals. Your flowers are beautifully coloured too.

Tina Gillespie

OMG, I love this design! The crisp white with the embossing and the pops of pink are all so fabulous. Stunning cards!

Catherine Proctor

Oh I love how you have toned this colour down to create the prettiest of cards, Kathryn! all that white space makes this colour shine - adorable!

Andrea Sargent

Gorgeous cards Kathryn. I so love the pop of colour on your white background with the Framed Florets bundle and the Eucalyptus embossing. The second version with the added touches of Melon Mambo is also delightful. Xxx

Theresa Gerrard

Oh I do love lots about your card Kathryn. I'm loving all the white space. It's something I'm enjoying creating as well. The choice of embossing folders is absolutely perfect to go with the Florets Frames. My fave of the 2 would the first as I love all of the white space.

Rachel Palmieri

I love how you dialled back the colour this week Kathryn. Bringing the foliage from Cup of tea was a bit clever too.
