We Fall In... Colours Blog Hop for August 2020

Hi crafters,

I'm hopping again and this time it's the turn of the We Fall In... Colours team.  We are an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who love to share our passion for creativity through colour.  If you've come from Diana's post you are on the right track.  There is a full list of participants at the end of this post.  

This month we are showcasing projects made using Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron.  I really wasn't sure what theme to pair with this colour combo as there were so many possibilities but I love how my card turned out using the Wreath Builder Dies.  

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and the dotty mask from the Basic Patterns Decorative Masks.  I first inked through with Mint Macaron and then shifted the mask so that the open spaces lined up between the inked dots.  I inked again in Night of Navy, adding some lighter and darker patches to create interest.  I used the Wreath Builder dies to create the focal element.  I used one of the wreath dies to cut from Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron cardstocks and then offset these using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I didn't adhere all the leaves so that they would create texture.  I made three flowers from two layers Night of Navy cardstock cut from one of the flower dies from the Wreath Builder set.  I folded each petal around the shaft of my pokey tool from the Take Your Pick Tool and then added pearls in the centre to finish.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set and used the matching Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to create a label, adding a layer of Night of Navy cardstock behind.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals behind the sentiment label to pop it up on the front of the card.  

I hope you are enjoying our colours for this month and have found inspiration in our posts.  Don't forget to leave a comment so we know you've visited.  To keep hopping, click the next button below to head to Petra's post.
