Colour Combo October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo October Blog Hop as we showcase projects created using this month's color combination of Pumpkin Pie, Mossy Meadow and Starry Sky. Our Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to try creating your own beautiful projects with this color combination. 
For my card design, I decided to do a little reverse masking to create a soft background for my focal design. I chose to use the Nature's Harvest Bundle, as it has a wonderful range of images and sentiments and the coordinating dies take the stress out of creating.

This clean and simple card design is simple to create and I love that I only need one bundle to create this card. The background is easy to create by die cutting a circle from a Post It Note and applying it to the Very Vanilla cardstock layer and then applying Starry Sky Classic around it with a Blending Brush to create this beautiful background. When you remove the Post It Note, you are left with a circle of Very Vanilla that adds wonderful contrast to the card and is a perfect spotlight for the floral image. To create the floral image, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and I die cut it with the coordinating die. I colored the image using Classic inks and a Blender Pen. I attached the floral image to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals so that the flowers are inside the Very Vanilla circle. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front twice and tied a bow over the stems of the floral image. The sentiment was heat embossed with Copper embossing powder onto the Very Vanilla Label and I attached it to the Mossy Meadow Label with Stampin' Dimensionals, slightly off setting it. I added the sentiment to the card front so that it overlaps the Linen Thread on the right side of the card front. To finish off the design, I added three of the small Copper Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.
