Week 2 - Colour Creations Blog Hop - Balmy Blue

Hello and Welcome to week 2 of the 2021-2022 Colour Creations Blog Hop. As we are going to be working through the Stampin' Up! Colours in Alphabetical order we are starting with Balmy Blue. For me this is a very pretty blue and I love it so much. As my Dad's birthday is coming up on the 24th of this month and he will be 88 I thought I would do a card for him. I have used the Hats Off Bundle found on page 47 of the Annual Catalogue along with the A Good Man stamp set.  This style of card is called a Book Binding Card and it's so effective.

 
I started with a Balmy Blue Card Base and added Night of Navy layers to the front along with the In Good Taste DSP I stamped my cap using Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the dies from the bundle. I mounted my Cap onto Dimensionals and then Stamp my Sentiment from the A Good Man Stamp set I finished off the front with some Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and Blue Adhesive Gems.
 

My insert was also layered on Night of Navy Card, I then stamped the deck chair image from the A Good Man Stamp Set and coloured him using my Marker pens I then also cut out the small cap from the Hats Off dies and glued this to the inside of the card.
All the items used in this project can be found in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. If you would like to purchase any or all of these product please give me a call, email or PM so that I might help you with your purchase.

  8. Great card, Diane. I love to see different ways of using the In Good Taste DSP as it’s a pack I really struggle to think of how to use the patterns. Love the combination of stamp sets, they work well together.
