Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #40: Colour Challenge

by Kylie
Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop

Hi, welcome to the Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop day! Thanks so much for hopping with us this month. The theme for our March 2022 Blog Hop is a Colour Challenge. We were challenged to create a card using Bumblebee, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight. You are also allowed to use Basic Black, Basic White and/or Very Vanilla.

Here’s the Challenge…

Here’s the card…

To be honest, I really struggled with the colour choice at first…and that’s partly why I love these challenges. They get you to think outside of your usual selections. I was looking at the Stampin’ Up!® website and saw a beautiful card by Jacque Williams using the Brilliant Wings dies and similar colours to our challenge. I knew a CASE was in order! Her card is STUNNING! You should check it out too.

I started by cutting three panels of Basic White cardstock to size. I die cut one of the panels using the Brilliant Wings dies to use as a template. I die cut the detailed butterflies from the second sheet and put them aside for later.

With the template I had die-cut, I layered this on top of the third panel and then sponged on Bumblebee and Magenta Madness ink using a Blending Brush. I then trimmed this panel to the size I wanted so that some of the butterflies would hang a little over the edge. Next, I layered this onto a piece of Magenta Madness cardstock before adhering this panel onto a card made from Thick Basic White cardstock.

I added some Liquid Glue to the centre of the detailed butterflies dies and then added them to the card. I love how dimensional it looks. Now, I cannot forget the Misty Moonlight so I used Misty Moonlight ink to stamp the greeting (from the Special Moments stamp set) and trimmed this panel to size. I also use the Light Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Marker to colour a few of the Pearl Basics Jewels. These were then placed randomly in places over the card. And that is my card! I hope you like it and will give it a go!
