Colour Combo Blog Hop - August...

Good morning and welcome to the Colour Combo Blog Hop for August, today we are using the colours Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede.

You may have joined me from Tricia or starting the hop here. We certainly have a bumper hop for you today so get yourself a cuppa and hop along.

I was unsure what stamp set to use to create my card but remembered a new set from the Annual Catalogue which I had barely inked so I decided to get it out, it is called Tasteful Touches.


It is a very pretty set with lots of different elements which makes it so versatile.

Here is my card...

I started with a Mint Macaron card base.  I then cut out a layer from Rich Razzleberry and another from Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper.  I used pippets to pick up some colour from the reinkers and 'puffed' them across the watercolour paper.

I used the frame die from the Nature's Thoughts dies in the vellum and mounted the three layers together.  The leaves were stamped in Mint Macaron and die cut.  The flowers were stamped in Memento ink and were coloured using the Stampin' Blends.  I cut the fancy border piece also from the Nature's Thoughts dies and arranged all my pieces on my card front.  I stamped my greeting, taken from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Rich Razzleberry.  I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers and, finally, I coloured some Jewels in Soft Suede and glued them to my card.

Here are some close ups...

I hope you have enjoyed my project, I love to hear from you so please leave me a comment if you do.

I am now going to pass you on to Sigrid who I am sure has something beautiful to share with you today.  There is a list of hoppers shown below.

Happy Stampin'
