Week 6 Colour Creations Blog-Hop - Balmy Blue

Hi and Welcome to week 6 of the colour creations blog-hop. We have now finished all of the 2022-2024 In-colors so we well be starting on the regular colours in Alphabetical order. Starting with Balmy Blue. I have chosen to do my card with a bundle that is retiring at the end of June, Called Love & Happiness. 

I started my card with a Balmy Blue card base and added a Night of Navy layer. I then used a white layer to embossed with the Hybrid Embossing folder. I then used the dies to cut out the Heart from the centre. Using my blending brushes I coloured to Heart with Night of Navy Ink and the outer embossed area with Balmy Blue Ink. I place the larger section onto Dimensionals and the heart was glued down flat. I stamped my tag from the same stamp set in Night of Navy. With the flowers I stamped them onto some Basic White card using the Night of Navy Ink and then coloured them using the Balmy Blue Blends, Light and Dark. I layered these onto the front of the card. Then I Stamped the leaves from Forever Fern Set using Mossy Meadow and cut them out with the matching dies. I finished off the front with some Basic Rhinestones.

My insert was using the 2 for mentioned sets for the Sentiment and the flowers. I then coloured the flower in the same way as I did for the front of the card. Layering this onto another Night of Navy card and gluing to the inside of the card. All the items used in this project are current at the time of publication, but the Love & Happiness bundle will be retiring at the end of June 2022 so if you haven't already purchased this set and would like it please don't waste time as it is only available while stocks last. If you would like to purchases any of all of these product please feel free to contact me either by email, PM or phone.

  1. Such a beautiful subtle card Di, I think Balmy Blue coordinates well with Night of Navy. I’m going to miss this bundle when it’s discontinued

  2. Di, I love the texture of your card and the pop of that Night of Navy heart sitting in a field of embossed Balmy Blue flowers. The sentiment set at an angle really catches the eye and looks so effective!

  3. A beautiful card Di. Love your use of the Love & Happiness Hybrid Embossing Folder with Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. Gorgeous xxx

  4. Very pretty card, Di. That little bunch of flowers and leaves to the side of the heart is lovely. Great texture with the embossing.

  5. Diane such a gorgeous card and the way you have used the blending brushes so subtly on the outer part of the card ads to the softness. Your colouring of the flowers is also lovely.

  6. Such a pretty and soft card Di. The florals pair nicely with the embossed background.

  7. This is a lovely, romantic, card, Di! I really like how you used Blending Brushes to add ink in the two blues to the embossed areas; so pretty. The cluster of flowers is a lovely addition to the card front.
