JAI #575 - Just Add a Colour Combo

Hi and welcome! You're just in time for a colour challenge and this week Patrice picked gold and two of Stampin' Up's gorgeous 2021-2023 in colours to play with.

I chose to make a simple Christmas card and love how it turned out.

The polished pink card on its own was a little paler than I wanted, so I darkened it by sponging the matching ink over the squares once I'd done my gold embossing (the embossing resists the ink). I also wanted different shades of soft succulent for my wreath to add depth, so I punched some from 'raw' cardstock, some from card I had sponged over with the co-ordinating ink and some I had coloured with the matching Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. 

I don't often use pink for Christmas cards but I love this combo, it's a softer yet still elegant alternative to red and green. 

Materials used:
  • stamps - Music & Advert (Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous)
  • card - basic white, polished pink, soft succulent, gold foil
  • other - ultra fine gold embossing powder, heat tool, layering cirlces dies, Big Shot, Dimensionals, gold cord, jingle bells, blending brush, Stampin' Blends, mini glue dots, pine branch punch, craft foam, embossing buddy

We'd love to see what you can create with this beautiful combination of colours and my team mates have more cards to inspire you over on the Just Add Ink blog.

Thanks for dropping by.

I really like how you used the colours as a Christmas theme, you certainly pulled it off. Sponging the pink colour really makes the card pop with colour. TFS

So pretty Kerry! I love the depth of colour the sponging adds to your squares and embossing. So clever to use these colours for a Christmas card. xx
