Colour Combo March Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo March Blog Hop as we are challenged to use Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry to create our projects. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as we share our ideas to help inspire you to explore this wonderful color combination. 
Today I am sharing a fun birthday card design using the Hoot Hooray stamp set (item #149352) from the Experience Creativity Brochure. I love the simple images in this stamp set and the fact that they include the sentiment in one stamp. 
 To create this card design, I started with a Melon Mambo cardstock card base and added a layer of Crushed Curry cardstock as a matte to the Whisper White cardstock layer. I stamped the Whisper White cardstock with the stars stamp image using Crushed Curry Classic ink and then stamped the splatter design from the Painted Poppies stamp set (item #151599) using second generation stamping with Blushing Bride Classic ink. This means that I stamped off the image once after inking it up onto a scrap piece of paper before stamping it onto the Whisper White cardstock. This gave me a softer, lighter color that added color to the background without overwhelming the design.
The focal design was created by die cutting a tag using one of the dies from the Bonanza Dies (item #151566) from Whisper White cardstock and I stamped the image from the Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp set with Stazon Jet Black ink onto the tag. I colored the image using Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Markers and then added a touch of shimmer to the images with Clear Wink of Stella. I added a small piece of Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (item #146912) to the tag and tied it with a simple knot. I attached the tag to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. 
 To finish off the card design, I colored in some of the stamped stars with Clear Wink of Stella and added a Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. This card design would work well for girls of all ages and I really love the way the splatter adds a distressed look to the background.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to create your own design using this color combination. There are so many possibilities with these beautiful colors.
