Ink. Stamp. Share. September Monthly Blog Hop Color Inspiration

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. September Monthly Blog Hop and this month we have a fun Color Challenge. We have been challenged to create a project using at least three of the following colors: Soft Succulent, Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Polished Pink and Rich Razzleberry. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their projects and ideas using these wonderful colors to help inspire you. 
I love participating in Color Challenges as it helps me to explore new possibilities and helps me step outside my comfort zone. The colors in this month's Color Challenge are so beautiful and I love how well they work together. I decided to create my card design with all five of these beautiful colors. 
For my card design, I chose to use the wonderful Gorgeous Leaves stamp set from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. I paired it with the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set, which is the Sale-a-bration Host Reward you can earn free with a qualifying party/order and is available only until September 30th. To create my design, I used the soft colors for the background and the darker colors for the focal leaves. I love the non-traditional colors for the leaves and how they pop against the background. The Gorgeous Leaves stamp set is so versatile and works well with so many color combinations.

One of my favorite things about the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set is the wonderful variety of images it has and how well they work together to create collage designs. I chose to use the large dot background image with Petal Pink Classic ink along with the smaller dot background image with Soft Sea Foam Classic ink to create a muted background for my design. Using the three large leaf images, I stamped them with the remaining colors to create a beautiful design. For the sentiment label, I die cut the label from Soft Sea Foam cardstock with one of the dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set with the Rich Razzleberry Classic ink. I attached a piece of the Soft Succulent and Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbons across the front of the card front and attached the sentiment over the top with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then attached the card front to the Soft Sea Foam cardstock layer and then attached it to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the card design, I added Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the sentiment label and the card front for a touch of bling. I love how soft and pretty this card design is and how the ribbons add a pop of color to step up the card design.
