Color Fusers Blog Hop April 2020

April 2020 Color Fusers color challenge

 

 

 

Welcome back to the Color Fusers blog hop for the month of April.  I hope you are well, and are finding the silver lining in each day.  I am enjoying spending extra time with my husband and children without the day-to-day chaos that 4 children and 2 working parents brings.  What are you enjoying most?  Please share in the comments, I would love to hear your silver lining!

 

 

 

April 2020 Color Fusers Color Challenge

 

 

 

I really enjoyed this month's color challenge.  The colors flow together nicely, and were easy to work with.

 

 

 

Stitched So Sweetly and Well Said dies work perfectly together!

 

 

 

As the current catalog is soon coming to a close, I pulled out items that have not gotten enough love.  This designer paper is simply gorgeous!  It comes in 3 colors with beautiful patterns printed on each color.  I had not thought to use it for a card base until now.  It works perfectly!

 

And for whatever reason, I have not even inked up Botanical Bliss yet.  This set is lovely.  It was one of my favorites when it launched.

 

Botanical Bliss Stamp Set

 

 

I pulled in some great die sets and a punch to round out today's project.

 

 

 

 

Wink of Stela is perfect on the bird!

 

 

 

To create this card:

  • cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Noble Peacock designer paper and score a t 4 1/4"
  • Cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock 3 1/4" x 2 3/16"
  • Die cut a medium scalloped rectangle from Vellum cardstock using the Stitched So Sweetly dies
  • punch 2 sprigs from Balmy Blue cardstock
  • die cut 5 branches from Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Botanical Tags die set

Adhere the Soft Sea Foam layer behind the vellum scalloped rectangle and adhere to card front.  Stamp sentiment in Soft Sea Foam ink on Whisper White cardstock, fussy cut and adhere to rectangle.  Die cut 'friend' in Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Well Written dies and adhere beneath sentiment.  Stamp bird in Blueberry Bushel ink, color with Wink of Stella, fussy cut, and adhere sitting on word.  Arrange die cut branches and punched sprigs behind rectangle and adhere in place.  Color a piece of metallic trimmed ribbon with a Soft Sea Foam Blends marker, tie in a bow, and adhere to rectangle. Embellish as desired with None Peacock Rhinestones.  Stamp inside sentiment in Soft Sea Foam ink.

 

 

Stampin' Tip:  Use your Blends markers to color white ribbon, making custom colors for any project!

Color Fusers Blog Hop March 2020

March 2020 Color Fusers using Parisian Blossoms stamp set, Cherry Blossom dies, and the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder

 

It's color time!  Welcome to the March 2020 Color Fusers Blog Hop.  

 

CF March

 

I love when I am given a color challenge using colors I would never put together on my own - like Mint Macaron and Pear Pizzazz.  But I love how this project turned out using them together!

 

 

 

The floral blossoms in the Forever Blossoms stamp set worked perfectly to use all the colors well, and I love how the pop of color from the Garden Lane designer paper in Mint Macaron pulls it all together.

 

 

 

The Parisian Flourish embossing folder creates a gorgeous background!

 

This amazing background was created using the Parisian Flourish embossing folder.  I can't stop using it, it's just gorgeous!  You can see last month's project with this embossing folder here, and another with several products from the Parisian Blossoms product suite, which includes this embossing folder and stamp/die set on today's project, here.

 

 

The coloring is quick and easy with a watercolor wash on the flowers and stems, which adds just enough color.  And, although the floral spray looks great straight up,  I love the additional dimension added using the individual blossom and bud stamps and dies included in this set.

 

 

Just enough color and dimension thanks to a great stamp/die bundle and a little watercolor wash!

 

 

To create this card:

  • cut a Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and score at 4 1/4"
  • cut a Very Vanilla layer 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" and emboss with Parisian Flourish embossing folder
  • cut a piece of designer paper 3 3/4" x 5" for layering
  • cut a strip of Very Vanilla 3" x 1/2" for the sentiment

Adhere embossed layer to designer paper at an angle, and adhere to card front with dimensional.  Stamp the floral spray, 2 blossoms, and 1 bud in Soft Suede ink.  Color the flowers with Mint Macaron and the stems and leaves with a Pear Pizzaz watercolor wash using an Aqua Painter.  Die cut and adhere to card front.  Stamp sentiment in Soft Suede ink on vanilla Cardstock, and adhere to card front over a ribbon cluster.  Embellish as desired with Mint Macaron rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone collection.

3D Tutorial Sneak Peek for March 2020

 

Today's project uses the Full of Happiness stamp set.  

 

Isn't this chick adorable?

 

The shell is cut from a coordinating die found in the Dino die set.  And the full egg is actually the stripes for the egg in the Full of Happiness stamp set stamped twice, and cut out with an oval die.  It fits perfectly!

 

And check out the vellum background!

 

This is a NEW Sale-A-Bration item coming March 3rd!  It is gorgeous!  It has an embossed pattern and a beautiful sheen.  There are 3 different colors included in the pack!  You will want this!

 

 

So Very Vellum coming soon!  Ask me how to get your pack FREE!

 

 

I finished it all off with a fun sentiment.  To create it, I stamped it once in green, than a second time in grape, and cut the words apart, mixing and matching, until I got this result.  You can do this with any sentiment stamps to create custom sentiments and greetings!

 

 

To create this card:

  • cut a Purple Posy card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4"
  • cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of So Very Vellum (available March 3rd!)

Adhere vellum to card base.  Stamp strips twice in Highland Heather ink, stamped of once.  Color the stripes with Wink of Stella, than die cut with a matching oval die.  Die cut the cracked egg with die from the Dino die set.  Repeatedly stamp the small flower from Full of Happiness in Blushing Bride ink.  Add Noble Peacock Rhinestones to flower centers.  Stamp chick in Daffodil Delight ink, add Mango Melody beak and Black eyes.  Fussy cut, and adhere behind cracked egg.  Tie pokla dot ribbon around full egg, and arrange eggs on card front.  Stamp sentiment in Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.  Cut out the words, and arrange as desired on card front.
