Welcome to the Colour Combo January Blog Hop as we start a New Year with a fun new color combination. This month we have been challenged to create a project using Basic Gray, Pear Pizzazz and Pumpkin Pie. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their creations to help inspire you.
For this color combination, I chose to use the new Bonanza Buddies Bundle (item #153815) from the Birthday Bonanza Suite in the January-June Mini Catalog. I love the cute animals images in this bundle and thought it would make a fun birthday card.
To create this card, I started with a Pear Pizzazz cardstock card base and I added a layer of Basic Gray cardstock that I embossed with the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder (item #151503) from the Tropical Oasis Suite on page 39 of the new catalog. I added a 2" x5" piece of Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Paper from the Regals 6"x6" Designer Series Paper Pack (item #149616) to the right side of the embossed Basic Gray cardstock to add a splash of color.
The focal image was created by stamping the koala image onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Basic Gray Classic ink for the body and Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the face details. I die cut the image using the coordinating die and attached it to a Whisper White cardstock circle that I die cut using the Layering Circles Dies (item #141705). I layered this circle onto a scalloped circle die cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock to frame it. To decorate the card, I added a party hat die cut with a die from the Bonanza Dies (item #151566) and added a White Pompom from the Assorted Pompoms (item #151310). The balloons were die cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Silver Foil and I used Linen Thread to create the strings for the balloons.
I created the sentiment label by stamping the sentiment with Pumpkin Pie Classic ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch and added another label punched from Pear Pizzazz cardstock that I cut in half and layered behind the Whisper White layer. I then attached the sentiment to a Silver Foil label punched out using the Tailored Tag Punch with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the Silver Foil label to the card front with Snail Adhesive.
This fun card design could be created in a variety of color combinations to suit the occasion and would work for a variety of ages.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my card design will inspire you to experiment with these colors and see what you projects you can create. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
