Colour Combo April Blog Hop


Welcome to the Colour Combo April Blog Hop as we explore creating projects with this month's color combination of Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron and Old Olive. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas to help inspire you.
As we count down to the end of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, I thought I would share this beautiful birthday card created with the To A Wild Rose stamp set (item #149452) and the coordinating Wild Rose Dies (item #149547). Sadly they are both retiring and can be found on the Last Chance Products Sale List and are available while supplies last. For the sentiment, I chose to use the Happy Thoughts stamp set (item #154507) from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I love the beautiful fonts and lovely sentiments in this stamp set that make it a must have for creating beautiful cards for a variety of occasions.

So Saffron Cardstock
5 1/4" x 4" - Embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder
This clean and simple card has a classical elegance to the design. I colored the rose image with the Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron Stampin' Blends Combo Packs, using the Light and Dark So Saffron to add highlights to the petals and the center of the rose. For the leaves, I used the Old Olive Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. I embossed the So Saffron cardstock layer with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to the background and added the sentiment label with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the rose and leaves to the card front, overlapping them over the top left corner of the sentiment label. For a touch of bling, I added Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and Clear Wink of Stella to the rose for a touch of shimmer. This card design would work well for a variety of occasions to send to the people you care about.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design helps to inspire you to explore creating with this color combination. The Stampin' Blends Markers are a wonderful way to add color to your stamped images to step up your card designs.
