Colour Combo January Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo January Blog Hop as we get ready for our first Colour Challenge of 2022. This month we have been challenged to create a project using Cinnamon Cider, Evening Evergreen and Early Espresso. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they showcase their ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
When I first saw this color combination, it made think of a nature theme and I thought it would be perfect for a masculine card design. I chose to use the new Grassy Grove stamp set from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog and focused mainly on stamps, paper and ink. The only die cutting I did was for the sentiment label and I chose to use one of the Tailor Made Tags Dies to create it. I love this clean and simple look and the natural feel of this design.

This clean and simple card is all about the stamping. I love the background images in the Grassy Grove stamp set and how easy it is to layer them to create depth and dimension to a design. I stamped the large background image several times across the center of the card front with Evening Evergreen Classic ink, both full strength and second generation stamping. I repeated the process with the smaller grass image using Early Espresso Classic ink, stamping slightly lower to create a new layer of foliage to the background. Using Cinnamon Cider Classic ink, I stamped the deer image towards the bottom left corner of the Very Vanilla layer and then I stamped the smaller grass image repeated (after stamping off several times) with Evening Evergreen Classic ink to create the look of a grassy meadow. I used a Blender Pen to blend the ink around the deer and soften the stamped images. To complete the card design, I create a sentiment tag with the Tailor Made Tags dies from Cinnamon Cider cardstock and added a small decorative tab around the opening, die cut from Early Espresson cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso Classic ink and added a piece of Linen Thread to the tag, before attaching it to the top of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. This card design is a great example of how you can create layers of color using Generational Stamping to add texture and depth to your design.
