Colour Combo July Blog Hop


Welcome to July's Colour Combo Blog Hop as we explore this month's color combination of Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and Petal Pink. I hope you will enjoy your tour around our blog hop as you visit with demonstrators around the world, sharing their projects inspired by this color combination. You may have just visited Sue's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here. I hope that our creations will inspire you to experiment with these colors in your own projects. 
For my card today, I decided to create a Get Well card using the new Healing Hugs stamp set, which features beautiful images and wonderful sentiments to cheer up someone when they are feeling down.

I started with Balmy Blue cardstock for my card base and added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock which I embossed with the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next, I die cut an opening using one of the dies from the Stitched Seasons Framelits dies, a sneak peek of what will be available in August as part of the Color Your Season Promotion available for a limited time only.
The insert has also been die cut using the same die from Petal Pink cardstock and I stamped the rose image in the center and the leaves around the edge with Petal Pink Classic ink. I heat embossed the sentiment with Gold embossing powder and added Basic Pearls to embellish. 

The Night of Navy cardstock layer is attached to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals and the Petal Pink cardstock insert is attached using Snail Adhesive. The die cut bow and floral embellishment were die cut from Gold Foil using detailed dies from the Stitched Seasons Framelits and attached using Snail adhesive. For the finishing touch, I added a Basic Pearl to the center of the flower die cut.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today and I hope that it has inspired you to try creating with this amazing color combination. It really is fun to step outside your comfort zone and explore new ways to create with color. Now it's time to visit Tracy's blog and see what she has created this month.
