Colour Combo January 2019 Blog Hop

It's time for the first Colour Combo Blog Hop of 2019 and this month we have been challenged to create a project using Gorgeous Grape, Cajun Craze and Coastal Cabana. You will be visiting blogs from Stampin' Up! demonstrators all over the world sharing their ideas and projects for this color combination. I hope that you will be inspired by what we have to share.
My card design features one of the new Sale-a-bration Level 1 rewards, the Hello Cupcake stamp set. I just love the images in this stamp set and the fun sentiments. It is perfect for celebrating a variety of occasions from birthdays to just cheering someone up who is having a bad day.

I chose Coastal Cabana cardstock for my card base and added a Gorgeous Grape cardstock frame that I created using the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits (item #148551) from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. I just love these amazing dies and they have so many wonderful combinations. 

I stamped the cupcake base with Cajun Craze Classic ink onto a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock, towards the bottom and the sentiment towards the top. I stamped the sprinkles below the cupcake base with Gorgeous Grape and Coastal Cabana Classic inks. 

On a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the base of the cupcake again with Cajun Craze Classic ink and the cupcake frosting twice, in Gorgeous Grape Classic ink and Coastal Cabana Classic ink. I fussy cut each piece out and attached them to the Very Vanilla card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. For a little bling and sparkle, I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the cupcake and the sprinkles.

This wonderfully versatile stamp set can be earned Free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration. If you live in the U.S. and do not have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
