Color Fusers Blog Hop September 2019

Harvest Hellos get better soon card for the September 2019 Color Fusers blog hop!

 

Welcome back!  We are here today with another great Color Fusers blog hop.  Thank you for joining us!

 

Color Fusers 2019:  Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, Night of Navy and Mossy Meadow

 

The colors this month were a little tough for me, but I think this project turned out adorable!  I decided to give you a sneak peek of what's to come on Wednesday - the 2019 Holiday Catalog

 

It is nothing short of amazing!

 

 

Coming September 4th!  Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder Punch

 

 

This little diddy was made using the Harvest Hellos bundle, which includes the Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder punch.  I love that it includes an apple and pumpkin, with adorable sentiments for both!  I choose the apple, and will give this to a team member who just had surgery.  

 

What do you think, will this cheer her up?

 

I made a watercolor apple using both Rococo Rose and Merry Merlot inks on our new Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, and WOW!  I love this paper!  It was the first time I had used it, and I was really happy with how well the colors blended.  And the paper did not warp, which was awesome!  

 

 

After watercoloring on the new Fluid 100 watercolor paper, I stamped and punched the apple, leaves and stem.

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a Rococo Rose card base 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a Rococo Rose layer 3 3/4" x 5" for the front
  • Cut a strip of designer paper 1 1/4" x 3 1/2"
  • Cut a Whisper White layer 2 1/2" x 2 3/4"

Watercolor an area large enough for the apple with Rococo Rose and Merry Merlot inks, and a smaller area with Mossy Meadow ink using the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.   After the watercolor dries, stamp the apple, stem and leaves, and punch with the Apple Builder punch.  Create a fun background by repeatedly stamping the apple on the front layer in Rococo Rose ink.  Layer the watercolor apple with some designer paper and a strip of Rococo Rose ribbon.

 

 

Stampin' Tip:

This beautiful 1/2" scalloped linen ribbon comes in all 5 of the 2019-2021 In Colors.  I wanted the Rococo Rose portion of this ribbon behind my apple, so I trimmed the scallop away from the linen.  It makes this ribbon even more versatile!

 

Trim the scallops off for a thin scallop to add to your projects!

 

Because this stamp set is so cute, I wanted to show you this pumpkin card as well, which I had already shared.  

 

 

Harvest Hellos bundle has a cute pumpkin, too!
  

Isn't this adorable?
