Color Fusers Blog Hop July 2020

Color Fusers July 2020 using the Beautiful World bundle.

 

 

Thank you for joining us today for another Color Fusers Blog Hop.  Each month we bring a color challenge to you by creating a card using the same colors.  Visit the whole team to see some awesome projects in a fun color combination.

 

 

Color Fusers July Color Challenge:  Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Pacific Point

 

This month I chose to create using he World of Beauty stamp set and coordinating World Map dies.  What a fun set!  Since the color combination creates an unexpected look for the theme of these stamps and dies, I pulled in extra fun with polka dots and bows.

 

I created the background by sponging ink onto a polka dot Basic Patterns Decorative Masks.

 

 

Add interest by using masks to create detailed background layers.

 

 

The sentiment was cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels die set.  I have used this set on so many of my projects lately, and it has fallen into the 'must have' category.  It has quickly become my favorite label set of all time for good reason!  With so many different shapes and sizes, it works for just about every single project.  Plus, there is beautiful stitching and decorative edges on each die, adding just the right amount of detail.

 

 

The Tasteful Labels dies are perfect for just about every project!

 

And it was fun creating detail to the continents with Shimmery Crystal Effects.

 

 

Shimmery Crystal Effects creates fun accents!

 

The World Map die set has a cool embossing die included.  Look at the detail on the banner layered under the sentiment.  Isn't that cool?

 

 

The World Map dies in the Beautiful World Bundle have some really neat specialty dies!

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a 4 1/4" x 11" Shimmery White cardstock base, scored at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" background layer in Coastal Cabana
  • Cut a 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" Shimmery White cardstock front layer
  • Cut a 1" x 3 1/2" strip of Coastal Cabana for an accent piece
  • Cut a 1/2" x 2 3/4" strip of Pacific Point for an accent piece

Sponge polka dots onto shimmery white layer in Calypso Coral ink, using a Basic Patterns mask.  Adhere to Coastal Cabana layer then to card front with dimensionals.  Stamp globe in Coastal Cabana ink and the sentiment and globe stand in Pacific Point ink, all on Shimmery White cardstock.  Die cut.  Emboss the strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the calligraphy die from the World Map die set.  Layer the Pacific Point and Coastal Cabana strips, and adhere behind sentiment.  Adhere this to card front with dimensionals.  Adhere globe and globe stand to card front using dimensionals.  Color Basic Pearls with Blends marker, and embellish card as desired.  Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to continents or other areas of the card as desired.  Color white ribbon in Light Calypso Coral Blends marker, tie a bow, and adhere to card front.

Today we are featuring the Playful Pets suite.  If you are a pet lover, this is a must!  I love that it has both cats and dogs, and has coordinating stamps and dies, awesome designer series paper, adorable trinkets, and lovely trims.  It is very fun to create with!

The grumpy dog image is from the designer paper.  This pooch cracks me up!  I had to put her in the dog house.

 

And the sentiment on this card fits her attitude perfectly!

It was fun to carry the cute designer paper to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Tip:  

Masking is a great way to increase the versatility of your stamps.  To do this, cover the portion of the stamp you don't want inked with a mask, ink the stamp, then remove the mask before stamping.  This can be done with any stamp.  Post-it notes, washi tape, and masking tape all make good masks to cover the part you don't want inked.
