Color & Contour Colour Challenge - Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the Crafty Collaborations Group and the theme is a colour challenge - Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green. I have used the Color and Contour Bundle and the Brights DSP stack, highlighting the four different pattern ways to make this pretty card. Let me show you how I made it.


1 piece of thick basic white card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
3 pieces of basic white card stock 1 5/8" x 3 1/2", 1 piece 3/4" x 3 1/2", scraps for stamping
3 pieces of dsp (use all colours) 1 1/2" x 3 3/8", 1 piece granny apple green dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of granny apple green card 7/8" x 3 5/8"
Color & Contour stamp set
Scalloped Contour dies
Memento Black ink
Melon Mambo blends
Granny Apple Green blends
Bermuda Bay blends
Stampin Cut & Emboss machine
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the thick white card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make a landscape card base.

Add the larger piece of dsp to the card front and the smaller pieces to the 3 pieces of white card. Adhere these to the card front leaving equal borders all around.

Stamp 3 flowers on the scraps of white card in memento black ink and stamp the sentiment on the 3/4" strip, I've also stamped inside the card too and added a 3/8" strip of dsp across the bottom of the card.

Die cut the flowers and then colour in with the blends, one in each of the three colours.  Add these to the corresponding coloured panels with dimensionals.

Layer the sentiment on the slightly larger granny apple green strip and adhere to the front on dimensionals across the three panels.

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