Colour Combo Blog Hop - January 2021...


Good morning and welcome to the Colour Combo Blog Hop, our first one for 2021!

You may have hopped over from the lovely Gez or starting the hop here.

Today we are creating with Bumblebee, Melon Mambo and Pool Party.  When I saw these colours my first thought was Summer.  I know Summer seems a long way off but just the thought of it is enough right now!

I have decided to use the Nothing's Better Than bundle to create my card today.  I have had this set for a while but Christmas happened and I haven't really had a chance to play with it much.

Here is my card.

Nothings Better Than

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and cut a further piece of Whisper White to measure 13.85cm x 9.5cm.  I inked the word Cocktails in Bumblebee ink and sponged a little of the Melon Mambo on to the bottom of the words to create a two tone effect.  I then repeated this across the whole background before adding the Pool Party stars between the words.

Nothings Better Than

I then stamped three of the cocktail glasses in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  I repeated the process for the drink inside the glass as I did for the words.  The umbrella was stamped in Pool Party and the orange slice on the side of the glass was stamped in Bumblebee with Melon Mambo over the top to create the orange colour.

Nothings Better Than

I die cut a Stitched Circle and glued this to the side of my card before die cutting the glasses and gluing them on top, one being on dimensionals.

Finally, I stamped the words using Versamark ink on to Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed using White Embossing Powder and added a few gems to add a bit of bling.

I hope you like my card today, it was fun creating and a set that I definitely need to play with some more.
