It's time to hop with the Global Stamping Friends (GSF) Blog Hop and this month we have been challenged to use colors from the Neutrals collection in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. You will be visiting demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas and projects to help provide you with ideas for your own creations.
Today I decided to showcase the wonderful variety of colors available in the Neutrals collection. These beautiful colors coordinate to help create wonderful projects. I chose to use Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow, Merry Merlot and Smoky Slate for this card design.I chose to use Smoky Slate cardstock as my card base and added a layer of Night of Navy to provide a frame for the Whisper White cardstock focal panel.
To create the background, I used my color palette with the variety of images from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set (item #148820) that can be found in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. Mossy Meadow Classic ink works perfectly for the leaves and the small dots in the background and I love how the flowers turned out using Night of Navy, Merry Merlot and Smoky Slate Classic inks.
To create the sentiment, I stamped the image from the Humming Along stamp set (item #148758) with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder onto a scrap of Night of Navy cardstock. I punched out the image using the Pretty Label Punch (item #143715) and attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals over a piece of Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon (item #144213) that I attached across the center of the focal panel. To finish off the card design, I added Basic Pearls that I colored with the Dark Night of Navy Stampin' Blends Marker (item #144039), to the centers of the Smoky Slate flowers.
As you can see, it is possible to create a beautiful card design using a variety of colors from the Neutral Collection. I love the elegant look that these colors add to the design. It is possible to create a variety of designs by experimenting with this collection. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, I would be happy to help you with your creative projects.
