Stamping Inkspirations February Blog Hop Color Challenge

Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations February Blog Hop and this month we have an amazing Color Challenge to help us get creative. We have been challenged to use at least 3 of the following colors: Blushing Bride, Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Bumblebee and Garden Green to create our project. We are also allowed to use the following neutrals in our design: Basic White, Very Vanilla, Basic Black and Crumb Cake. I am excited to see what everyone creates with this month's Color Challenge and I hope you will hop along and visit with our talented team members. 
When I saw the list of colors for this challenge, I thought of Spring flowers. This led me to the beautiful Blessings of Home stamp set from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I love the large floral image in this stamp set and I thought it would be a perfect way to showcase these wonderful colors. For the layers, I used the Scalloped Contours Dies and for the sentiment, I chose the Special Moments stamp set, which is a Level 2 Sale-a-Bration Reward that can be earned free with a qualifying order. This card design would work well for a variety of occasions.

This pretty card design features two different styles of coloring. I colored the flowers with Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends Markers and the rest of the elements were colored using a Blender Pen with Bumblebee, Garden Green and Blushing Bride Classic ink pads. I added a light shadow around the edge of the floral design with the Blushing Bride Classic ink and the Blender Pen. Using the Clear Wink of Stella, I colored over the floral image to give some shimmer and sparkle. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image from the Special Moments stamp set with Gold embossing powder and I added the Brushed Brass Butterflies to embellish the sentiment and focal design. I popped up both the sentiment label and the Polished Pink cardstock layer to give the card design some dimension. I added a piece of the Glittered Organdy Ribbon underneath the sentiment label to complete the design. I love how these colors came together to create this beautiful card design.
