May 2020 Colour Combo Blog Hop

Welcome to the May 2020 Colour Combo Blog Hop.This month’s color combination is Calypso Coral, Gorgeous Grape, and Crumb Cake! I am so excited to be part of this fun collaboration of international stampers.

You have just arrived from Gez Carpenter’s blog. You are currently visiting Nicole with Sugar & Scraps. I am in the United States. Thank you for dropping by. I do hope you enjoy my project. This months project was made using the Positive Thoughts stamp set.

For this months card, I used Crumb Cake as the card base. I used Gray Granite ink for the leaf image on the card base. I stamped full strength, and then I stamped the leaves a second time. It actually was quite a simple card to make.

To get the pretty color mix on my sentiment, which is die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I first inked my stamp in Calypso Coral. Then I took my Gorgeous Grape ink pad and inked a few spots on the words, using the corner of the ink pad. Yes, I mixed my inks…but I went light to dark, and so it is ok. The butterflies are in Gorgeous Grape and the flowers are Calypso Coral. I had to fussy cut them out.

I finished off my project with a sprinkling of Rhinestones. I added all my pieces using dimensionals. I really hope you enjoyed my project. Click on the next button to hop over to Caroline Peck’s blog. Don’t forget to leave comments for all the talented stampers and their wonderful projects!
