A Pop of Colour

Surprisingly for someone who doesn't usually go too much for bright colours, and especially melon mambo - bright pink is definitely not my thing - my favourite designer papers from this year's catalogue are Pop of Pink. Mind you, I do love black and white with a pop of almost any bright colour, really, so perhaps it's not so surprising after all.

Our team challenge this month is using our favourite designer papers, so of course guess what I used? I saw a very cute easel card on Pinterest and used that as my inspiration, then made a gift bag to match, and I'm quite happy with the result.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Just Sayin'
  • card - basic black, whisper white, melon mambo, Pop of Pink DSP
  • other - Fox builder punch, 2 1/2" circle punch, circle framelit dies, word bubble dies, owl punch, black satin ribbon, Big Shot, crop-o-dile, Dimensionals, black rhinestone (non SU)

While at stamp camp last weekend - more on that to come - we also used black and white with a dash of colour for a project that Roz had organised; a small bag with matching gift cards. This time I chose tempting turquoise to be my accent colour and it looks just as lovely with black and white as the pink does. 

These gift cards are 3" x 3", so that gives you an idea of the size of the adorable little 'purse', which is an adaptation of the standard bag in a box and very simple to make. 

That's it for my pop of colour! Thanks for stopping by.
