July 2020 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Tropical Nights Color Challenge...


Good afternoon and welcome to the Kre8tors July Blog Hop.  You may have joined me from Tracie, or starting the hop here but we have a bumper of a hop today so sit back and enjoy.

This month we have been set a colour challenge, probably my favourite type of hop as it really makes you think outside the box and it certainly did that.  Here was the brief.


The colours are Basic Black, Basic Gray, Rococo Rose, Night of Navy and So Saffron.  A beautiful colour combo but a challenge for sure.

My project today has been made using the beautiful Seaside Notions stamp set.




I started by creating my background using a piece of Whisper White cardstock and using the Sponge Brayers added some Night of Navy ink to the background making it slightly lighter towards the centre.  I then embossed this piece using the brand new Seabed Embossing Folder.  I was being lazy and didn't use the correct sandwich in my cutting machine which caused the paper to crack slightly but I loved the effect so I am calling it my happy accident!


I then stamped the seahorse, shells and coral using Memento ink on to Whisper White cardstock.  I then coloured the pieces using a mixture of Night of Navy, So Saffron and Rococo Rose Stampin' Blends.

I fussy cut these pieces and arranged them on my card front, the seahorse and large shell are attached using 3d foam.






Finally.  I sponged around the whole piece using Basic Gray ink and added some lovely new embellishments coming in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

I stamped my greeting from the stamp set Best Year in Night of Navy ink on to Whisper White and used a brand new punch also coming in our Autumn/Winter catalogue to cut my banner end.


I then matted the sponged panel on to So Saffron and then Rococo Rose before mounting them on to a Night of Navy card base.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today, all of the products used are available from my online shop by using the links above and below in the Product List.

I am now going to pass you on to Su who I am sure has something lovely to share with you today.

Happy Stampin!

Colour Combo Blog Hop - July...


Good morning and welcome to the Colour Combo Blog Hop. 

Today we are highlighting three of our amazing colours, Highland Heather - Misty Moonlight - Sahara Sand

I absolutely love this colour combo but it wasn't until I sat down to actually create my project that I realised what a challenge it was!

I decided to use the amazing new stamp set called Game On.


I love everything about this set and it is so versatile for lots of occasions.


I used a Misty Moonlight card base and covered the front in the In-Color DSP.  I then added a layer of Highland Heather cardstock and a further layer using the Neutrals DSP.

I cut a banner and stamped the greeting using the Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight ink pads.  I cut a smaller banner in Highland Heather and matted the two together before adding them to my card front.

I stamped three sets of dice and using a Water Painter added some extra ink from the ink pad to give them more definition.  I cut them out and added them to my card front, one flat and two with 3d foam.

Finally I added some of the lovely In-Color Enamel Dots to finish.




I hope you have enjoyed my project today, all items used in the project are available to order from my online shop by using the product links below.

I am now going to pass you on to Jill who I know will have something lovely to share with you today.

Happy Stampin'
