Colour Combo October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo October Blog Hop as we explore the color combination of Coastal Cabana, Basic Gray and Real Red. We have been challenged to create a project using this color combination to help provide you with ideas and projects to inspire you to get creative.
For this month's color challenge, I wanted to create something fun and cheerful. I decided to use the Clever Cats stamp set to create an non-Halloween card and paired it with the Coastal Cabana Designer Series Paper from the Brights 6"x6" Designer Series Paper. I used the Layering Circles Dies to create the focal image and the Label Me Fancy Punch for the sentiment. This clean and simple card design is easy to create is sure to brighten someone's day.

This cute card is simple to create and is a great way to use the Clever Cats stamp set for a non-Halloween themed card. I love how these colors work together and the diagonal plaid background makes for a fun background. I stamped the cat image and the sentiment with Basic Gray Classic ink onto Basic White cardstock and I colored the box with the Coastal Cabana Stampin' Write Marker. I cut the Basic Gray label in half and attached it behind the sentiment label to create a frame. I attached a piece of Real Red Trim around the bottom of the card front and added the sentiment label over the top with Stampin' Dimensionals. I attached the Basic White focal circle to the Basic Gray Scalloped Circle and attached it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To decorate the card, I die cut a row of Real Red hearts with the Floral Heart Dies and attached three of them to the focal circle and two of the hearts on either side of the sentiment.
