Colour Combo February Blog Hop

It's time to hop with the Colour Combo February Blog Hop and this month our color challenge features Real Red, Gorgeous Grape and Pale Papaya. Our Design Team Members will be sharing wonderful projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own projects with these colors. 
For my card design today, I wanted to create a clean and simple card to showcase the bold, bright colors. I chose to use the Sentimental Swirls stamp set from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog and paired it with the Special Moments stamp set, which is a Level 2 Sale-a-Bration Reward you can earn free with a qualifying order. Simple Stamping is a wonderful way to create a card design and I chose to use Black and White and let the colors for our challenge provide the pop of color.

This card design is simple to create and I started by stamping the large swirl image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then began to build the design, adding the bird, then the large and small flowers and finally the butterflies. Next, I stamped the bird body image with Real Red Classic ink, the flowers with Gorgeous Grape and the butterflies with Pale Papaya Classic ink. I stamped the sentiment image from the Special Moments stamp set across the bottom with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I layered the card front onto the Basic Black cardstock layer and then added it to the card base. To complete the design, I added Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the centers of the flowers for a touch of bling. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my clean and simple card design will help inspire you to explore using these colors in your own creative projects. There are so many wonderful possibilities to explore.
