Colour Combo September Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Colour Combo Blog Hop. This month we have been challenged to use Garden Green, Gorgeous Grape and Old Olive to create our project. You may have just visited Cheryl's blog or perhaps you are starting here with me. I hope that you will enjoy our creations this month.

One of my favorite stamp sets from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog is the Healing Hugs stamp set. I just love the detail in the new Disinktive style stamps and I thought that this color combination would work well with the images in this set. 

I chose Garden Green cardstock for my card base and layered a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed using the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder onto the card base. I stamped the rose image with Gorgeous Grape Classic ink and the leaves with Old Olive Classic ink and then fussy cut the images. The images were attached to a large oval die cut from Whisper White cardstock using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, with Stampin' Dimensionals. I layered the oval over the top of a piece of Gorgeous Grape 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon that I attached around the center of the layer of Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set with Gorgeous Grape Classic ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then punched it out using the Classic Label Punch and then layered it onto a piece of Garden Green cardstock also punched using the Classic Label punch and attached the sentiment to the card front with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the card, I added small Basic Pearls colored with the Light Old Olive Stampin' Blends Marker to the embossed card front and added Clear Wink of Stella to the stamped rose and leaves images.
I hope that you have enjoyed the project that I have created with this month's colour combination and I hope that it inspires you to give it a try. Now it's time to visit Kimberley's blog and see what she has created this month. Just click the Next button below to visit her blog. I hope that you enjoy the rest of our blog hop.

Until Next Time.
Happy Stampin',
