Colour Combo April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Colour Combo April Blog Hop and this month we have been challenged to use Sahara Sand, Shaded Spruce and Sweet Sorbet to create our projects. Our wonderful Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to explore this fun color combination.
This month's color combination was very challenging and I had to carefully look through my stamp sets and supplies before coming up with my design. This color combination would actually have been great for a Christmas card but unfortunately I didn't have any current stamp sets that worked for this type of card. Then I remembered that the retiring Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes had a wonderful Sweet Sorbet printed card base that would be perfect for this challenge. I decided to use the Silly Goose stamp set for my focal design and a piece of Sahara Sand Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals 6"x6" Designer Series Pack to complete my card design.

Silly Goose stamp set (item #160866)

This fun card design is simple to create and requires minimal coloring. I stamped the goose and sentiment images onto the Basic White scalloped rectangle with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped the balloon image onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut it out with Paper Snips. To add some color to the goose, I used the Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Marker and blended it with Clear Wink of Stella to add a touch of shimmer. I colored the balloon with the Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Blends Markers and added the fussy cut balloon on top of the original balloon with Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the balloon to add a little sparkle. For the hat, I used Shaded Spruce and Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Blends Markers and I added some grass to the bottom of the rectangle with Shaded Spruce Classic ink. I adhered the Basic White rectangle to the Sahara Sand Designer Series Paper with Stampin' Dimensionals and then added these layers to the card base to assemble to the card. I colored several Basic Pearls with the Light Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the card front to finish off the design.
