Colour Combo June Blog Hop

Welcome to June's Colour Combo Blog Hop. This month we have been challenged to use the color combination of Blackberry Bliss, Crumb Cake and Petal Pink. I am excited about this month's combo as it includes a brand new color, Petal Pink, along with a returning color, Blackberry Bliss, to help challenge our creativity. You will be visiting blogs featuring projects created by Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world. I hope that you enjoy the journey. 

For my card design, I chose to use Crumb Cake cardstock for my card base. This color is a wonderful neutral and I love the way it makes the layer of Blackberry Bliss cardstock stand out. I layered a piece of Petal Pink Designer Series Paper from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper pack (item #14626) onto the Blackberry Bliss layer and I love the way these colors contrast. 

I added a 1 1/4" strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock for the sentiment and chose the Thank You sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set (item #148042) and heat embossed it with White embossing powder. 

I layered a Pearlized Doily behind the Blackberry Bliss cardstock to add a little detail to the card front. To finish off the card design, I added Basic Pearls to both sides of the sentiment. It's hard to tell from the photos, but both the designer series paper and the doily have a lovely pearlized sheen to them and the pearls coordinated perfectly.
The Share What You Love Suite has beautiful products that coordinate to help you create simply elegant cards and projects. I love the way the stamp set, designer series paper and doilies all work together to create this lovely card design. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that you enjoyed my card and I hope it helps inspire you to try some of the new colors and products from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.
