Colour Combo May Blog Hop

It's time to have some fun with a New Colour Combo Blog Hop. For the month of May our colour combination is Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzazz. Try saying that 3 times fast. You have probably just visited Cheryl's amazing blog or perhaps you are beginning your blog hop journey here with me. Either way, I hope that you will enjoy this blog hop and that the projects we are sharing will help inspire you with your own projects. 

I am so excited to share with you a sneak peek of the new bundle, Sea of Textures, from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog that launches June 1st. I love the sea, so as soon as I saw this stamp set and coordinating framelits die set, I just knew I had to have it.

This month's color combination worked beautifully to create this under the sea card design and I was able to incorporate the colors using Stampin' Up!'s Classic inks and coordinating cardstock. The card base was created using Pool Party cardstock and I added a layer of Peekaboo Peach to matte the layer of Whisper White cardstock for the design. I used the Layering Circles Framelits dies to die cut circle from the Whisper White cardstock layer and then I gently sponged the circle with Pool Party Classic ink using a Sponge Dauber. I stamped the seaweed onto the sponged circle using Pear Pizzazz Classic ink to create a soft background. 

I created the octopus by stamping the image onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Peekaboo Peach Classic ink. I used the coordinating framelit die from the Under the Sea framelits and also die cut the seaweed, coral and sand dollar die cuts with the coordinating dies from scrap cardstock. I stamped the net image onto the Whisper White cardstock layer with Pear Pizzazz Classic ink. The sentiment is from the stamp set, Picture Perfect Birthday, and I stamped it with Pool Party Classic ink. 

To assemble the card I used Snail Adhesive to attach the octopus and other elements to the Whisper White cardstock layer. Using Stampin' Dimensionals I attached the Whisper White cardstock layer to the layer of Peekaboo Peach cardstock and placed the sponged circle inside the opening with Snail adhesive. To finish assembling the card, I used Snail adhesive to attach the layers to the Pool Party cardstock card base. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the stamped Octopus image and the die cuts to add a little shimmer.

I had a lot of fun creating this card with this month's color palette. I hope that you have enjoyed my card design and I hope it will inspire you to try this color combination for your own projects.
