Crazy Crafters Blog Hop Stampin’ Up! Colour Combo’s

augbloghop-colourcombo-header

Welcome to August’s Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, which this month shows off the vast range of colour combo’s that can be created with Stampin’ Up products.

If you have followed the blog hop to this page, you have just seen the wonderful creation of Sarah, at Sarah Stampin’ Up! The next link in our hop, after me, is our fearless leader – Kylie, at Crafty Kylie.

Well, this month I was spoilt for choice, with all of the wonderful colour combinations that are available, but because I don’t quite have all of the colour range, just yet, I had to substitute a couple of colours (mainly from the neutrals range), so you’ll have to excuse me.  As you’ll see, I didn’t couldn’t stop at one sample. LOL

Daffodil Delight – Calypso Coral – Pear Pizzazz

 

First off, I love the subtles collection – it was the first complete set of colours I bought from Stampin’ Up! in their ink pad range.  So of course, I have ALL of them. LOL  It was natural for me to use those as the main colour choices.

I chose this as the first sample, I had both Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral as part of the subtles pads, but chose to substitute Pear Pizzazz for Old Olive.

dolallycrafts-blooming-birthdayI love how bright but delicate this card looks, and for those who have seen my other creations on my blog, you’ll know that Petite Petals is my all-time-favourite punch – how could I resist?

I also used the new flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents pack.

The leaves were created by punching out petite petals and then sponging them with the Pear Pizzazz before cutting them into thirds.  Two petals for the larger flowers and one petal for the small flowers.

My colour combo inspiration – bloom-birth

Daffodil Delight – Wild Wasabi – Night of Navy – Marina Mist

 

The second colour collection was Daffodil Delight instead of Crushed Curry, and Wild Wasabi instead of Old Olive.

sympathy-cardI liked the more sombre/muted tones of this colour combination, and thought it ideal for a sympathy card.

I’d just ordered some blender pens to see how I would go colouring in images, as I haven’t indulged in ‘colouring in’ in a few years, and wasn’t sure how I would handle the new Blendabilities, so thought the blender pens may be the ideal way to start ‘learning’ again.

I was quite pleased with the result.

The ribbon used here is gros grain in a dark blue (almost but not quite a match for Night of Navy) but I think it finishes the card off quite nicely.  I hope you’ll agree. :o)

My colour combo inspiration – sympathy

Pool Party – Pink Pirouette – Calypso Coral – Memento Tuxedo Black

thank-youOnce again I had to make a substitution – this time for Basic Gray with Tuxedo Black from Memento.  To get a softer look, I did a stamp off with the black, before stamping onto the card.

This was a card I CASed almost completely from pinterest with just a couple of small changes.  You can see the original here.

My take was a coloured matt and the added bling. I love the Gorgeous Grunge stamps and use them ALL the time, as you can see on my normal blog pages.

My colour combo inspiration – thankyou
