Colour Combo May Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo May Blog Hop. This month we have been challenged to use Balmy Blue. Mango Melody and Blackberry Bliss together in our project. As you hop along with our blog hop, you will visit with demonstrators from around the world as they share their creative ideas. I hope that we can inspire you to create your own projects with this color combination.

 When I first saw this color combination, it reminded me of a sunny Spring day. Balmy Blue represents the sky, Mango Melody represents the sunshine and Blackberry Bliss represents the first Spring flowers that bloom in the garden. To create the card design I imagined, I chose the Love What You Do stamp set (item #148042), as it had the images and sentiment that I wanted.
 To create this card I chose Balmy Blue cardstock for the card base and added a layer of Mango Melody cardstock to create a frame for the Whisper White cardstock that I used to create the focal panel. I stamped the large background image with Balmy Blue Classic ink to create the look of the sky background. I heat embossed the floral image using Gold embossing powder so that the flowers would stand out against the stamped background. I colored the flowers with Light and Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blend Markers to create the shading I wanted. 
For the sentiment, I stamped the large background image onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock using Mango Melody Classic ink and then heat embossed the sentiment using Gold embossing powder. I punched out the sentiment using the Pretty Label Punch (item #143715) to create the decorate edges. 

I colored the spots on a piece of Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (item #146912) with the Light Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends Marker and adhered it to the card front and then added the sentiment on top with Stampin' Dimensionals. To embellish the card, I colored several Basic Pearls with the Dark Mango Melody Stampin' Blends Marker. For a touch of shimmer, I used the Clear Wink of Stella to color the petals of the flowers and a touch to the sentiment label. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design provides you with some inspiration. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
