Colour Combo Blog Hop - January 2021

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the Colour Combo Group and the chosen colours are Bumblebee, Melon Mambo and Pool Party, 3 of my favourites. I've teamed the colours with the lovely new Art Gallery stamp set. Let me show you what I have made.


1 piece of thick whisper white card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of bumblebee card stock 4" x 5 3/4"
1 piece melon mambo card stock 3 1/2" x 5 1/4"
1 piece of pool party designer series paper 3" x 4 3/4"
Scraps of whisper white for stamping
Art Gallery stamp set
Floral Gallery dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Bumblebee ink
Melon Mambo ink
White bakers twine
Basic jewels
Simply Scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Mini glue dots


Score the thick whisper white card stock on the long side at 4 1/8", fold and burnish to make a card base.

Adhere the three mat layers to the card front leaving an equal border all around the edges on all three.

Stamp the floral image on the scrap of whisper white in bumblebee ink and then stamp the small accent stamp over the top using melon mambo (it's really easy to line them up and makes the flower look like it has two colour petals).  Stamp the sentiment in melon mambo and then die cut both the sentiment and the flower. I have also stamped an additional sentiment on the inside as well as another floral image.

Add the floral image to the centre of the pool party panel on dimensionals and then add the sentiment below it, also on dimensionals.

Tie a small bow with the bakers twine and add beneath the sentiment with a glue dot. Add a few basic jewels for a bit of bling.

I hope that you like my card and will give it a try.

Please hop over to see what my colleagues have made, there is sure to be lots of inspiration there to give you ideas.
