Week 16 Colour Creations Blog - Hop Early Espresso


Hello and Welcome to Week 16 of the Art with Heart Team Australia Colour Creations Blog-Hop.
This week our colour is Early Espresso a really lovely Brown, So I thought I would team this colour up with Gold and I was really surprised at how well they went together.

Teaming up Early Espresso with Gold really gave this card the sparkle it needed. I also used the Blackberry Beauty DSP from the 2021 Mini Catalogue. With the beautiful paper with a hint of gold it really worked well. I wanted to add the Dragonfly from the Dragonfly Garden bundle so I stamped the dragonfly using Stazon ink and then punched it out. I mounted him on the card front with Dimensionals and then added some Brushed Metallic Dot.

The inside of my card I kept very simple with just a brush of colour on the White card so that it was so bright and then I stamped my sentiment and images using Early Espresso ink. I'm not sure who will end up with this card but I hope they like it.
All the items used in this project can be found in the 2021-2022 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue and the 2021 July-December Mini Catalogue. If you would like to purchase any or all of these product or would like to know more about Stampin' Up! in general please give me a Call, Email or PM so that I can help you.
