I am super excited that I was asked to join the Design Team at Color Fusers and am so happy to be back designing and blog hoping with other lovely stamping ladies!
This month is my first month designing for the Team – if you are new to this too, on the first Monday of each month we have a Blog hop using a color challenge – we can use all of the colors or a minimum of three on our project – here is the color combo assignment for this month, June:
This was a challenge for me, because I classically do not gravitate towards brights and this challenge has three of them in it – gasp! But here is what I came up with AND I managed to incorporate all 5 colors!
As always, I have a Project Sheet for you below detailing all measurements, the colors I used & full instructions on how to make this card below – look for the red words to find it…
I had a summer theme in mind for these colors and wanted to create a summery garden themed card using stamps & dies from the brand new Colorful Seasons Bundle.
I decided to keep my chair a classic white color and wanted to give the effect that it was sitting on a garden lawn (with the classic English ‘just mowed’ stripes!) and when I saw the Old Olive colored stripey paper in Color Theory DSP, I knew that was what would give me that lawn background look…
And to keep my garden theme going, I decided to add a leafy branch filled with colorful flowers…LOVE that splash of color!
I created the leafy branch using a die from Lovely Laurel Thinlits and added stamped & die cut flowers on top of it.
I stamped the sentiment directly onto the DSP using Basic Gray ink and popped another flower next to it – and I finished up with a little bling by adding sparkly Rhinestone Jewels to my flower centers and next to the Smile word – because I wanted the smile to stand out…(smiley!)…
The ribbon is the gorgeous new Old Olive Mini Chevron ribbon and I topped it with a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine and finished with a bow on top…
I hope you enjoyed my project for today and be sure to take the whole hop by clicking on all of my team members below – there are A LOT of amazing & pretty cards here:
