Week 8 - Balmy Blue Colour Creations Blog-Hop 2024-25


Hello and welcome to week 8 of the Colour Creations Blog-Hop. This week our feature colour is Balmy Blue. This is a really pretty pale blue and I love it. Although I did have a few issues coming up with a design for this weeks card. But I was happy with what jumped into my head.

I started out with a Balmy Blue card base, adding a Basic White layer that I embossed using the So Swirly Embossing folder. I then used the Deckled Circles 5 smallest sizes and cut out 2 sizes in Balmy Blue and 3 sizes in the Countryside Inn DSP. Gluing them to the front of the card largest to smallest in size on an angle. I then used the lovely Heart & Hugs Bundle and stamped the hugging badgers. I know badgers are not blue but they do look so cute coloured in Balmy Blue. Add a sentiment and badgers to the front with dimensionals and colouring some basic gems with night of navy ink to finish off the front.

I did bring the theme over to the inside of the card. Sorry about the red haze that was from the sun set through the window. I stamped the hugging badger again in the bottom corner and added the hearts colouring everything in Balmy Blue.

All the items used in this project can be found in the 2024-25 Annual Catalogue or in the Online store. if you would like to know more about these products please feel free to contact me.
