Colour Combo September Blog Hop

It's time to hop along with the Colour Combo September Blog Hop as we explore the challenge of using Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana and Call Me Clover to create our projects. I love green but I must admit that I have never thought of using these colors together and I am excited to share with you what I came up with. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world along this blog hop as we share our creative ideas to help inspire you to give these beautiful colors a try in your own creations.
 For my card design today, I chose to use the Capture the Good stamp set (item #150388) from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. This amazing stamp set was designed by fellow demonstrator, Tami White, as a reward for earning $1 Million in Career sales. My husband is a photographer, so this stamp was a must have for me. I paired it with the Perennial Birthday stamp set (item # 151240) for the Happy Birthday sentiment to complete the card design.
 To create this monochromatic card design, I chose Call Me Clover cardstock for the card base and added a layer of Mint Macaron cardstock for the matte layer for the focal design. I stamped the camera image from the Capture the Good stamp set with Coastal Cabana Classic ink onto a layer of Whisper White cardstock. To create the background, I stamped the image using Mint Macaron Classic ink and stamping it off once on a scrap piece of paper before stamping it randomly to create the background. 
Using the small heart stamp image from the Meant To Be stamp set (item #148626), I heat embossed the hearts with Silver embossing powder to embellish the background. I also heat embossed the birthday sentiment from the Perennial Birthday stamp set with Silver embossing powder in the bottom right corner.
 The lens was created using the circle dies from the Layering Circles Dies (item #141705) and I die cut the smallest circle from Whisper White cardstock and I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver embossing powder. I layered it onto a larger circle die cut from Call Me Clover cardstock and attached them both to the Mint Macaron Scalloped circle. I attached the circles to the card front so that they covered the stamped image of the lens. To finish off the card, I added a Clear Faceted Gem that I colored using the Dark Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends Marker, for a touch of bling. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design helps inspire you to try this fun color combination for your own projects. 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.
