Stamper's Dozen Color Challenge Blog Hop

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

It's time for another blog post with the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop. Today we are doing a color challenge. I love these challenges because they make me stretch outside my comfort zone and put colors together that I normally wouldn't.

Today's color challenge is Merry Merlot, Petal Pink and Silver Foil. I cheated a bit and used Silver glimmer paper. Afterall, the glimmer is made from foil, right? That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Don't even bother trying to tell me otherwise. 

It really is such a pretty combination for so many occasions. I hardly ever make get well cards so I decided to use the healing hugs set and make a nice get well card. Hope I don't need to send it to anyone. I don't want anyone sick.

This is a super easy card that looks way more impressive than it is in regards to the amount of work it takes to make it. It's all about the layering. The more layers (or look of layers that you get with the Bokeh dots stamp) the better. A lot of times when I don't like the way a card looks, I'll add one layer and boom it comes together perfectly. One layer is sometimes all it needs to look well put together and finished.

This was easy to stamp, just three little stamps were used. The bokeh dot is stamped in petal pink, the flowers and greeting are stamped in Merry Merlot. The lighter flower was just the stamped off version of the darker flower. I stamped first and then stamped again without reinking.

I realized I had a slight problem on my hands when I couldn't use a green color for the leaves. But then suddenly, it came to me. The leaves would look gorgeous in silver and I immediately went for the leaves punch and got busy.

I love how this finished card looks. It's so pretty in real life.

Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon.
