Color Fusers Blog Hop September 2018

Happy Labor Day to each and every one of you!  I hope you have had a lovely holiday weekend.  Mine was a bit busy but like every year, you cram in as much as you can hoping summer will not end!  I love summer and I am not ready to say good bye!  However, it is the first Monday of the month and that means Color Fusers Blog Hop September 2018 is here!  YAY!

 

 

A little fun!

As I was wrapping up my Holiday Card Class last week, I mentioned to members I needed to create a card for the upcoming Color Fusers Blog Hop.  I grabbed the 3 ink colors, Blackberry Bliss, Blueberry Bushel and Gray Granite and my holiday catalog.  I really wanted to make a card featuring a new stamp set and as flipped the pages, I stopped when I reached the Peaceful Noel Bundle.  The images were “fallish” to me and with this month’s colors, I thought I knew exactly what I wanted.  I cut some paper and started stamping, mind you, as people were here.  Numerous attempts, numerous changing colors of stamped images and I still wasn’t feeling what I wanted.  Then it came to me and I was on my way!  Sorry, no one thought to film me in action.

Dual purpose!

As I started making the first card, I decided I was also going to make 22 more and use it for an upcoming card swap!  YAY!  As you can see, I used one of the stamped images and stamped around in a circle by turning the paper to start my wreath layout.  Once the card was finished, I then prepped for the swap.  Wanting a little pattern on my card front, I used a 1″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Designer Series Paper from the new Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I was able to use a 2″ circle punch for the sentiment in the stamp set and layer it with the Starburst Punch.  Finishing up the card, I placed a Blueberry Bushel ribbon.  When I thought I was finished, I felt one more thing would help.  I added 3 Sprig punches and placed them under the sentiment.

A closer look:

I really enjoy working with specific color combinations.  Have you ever tried it?  I did not think I would have selected this trio, however, I love the outcome.  I hope you do too!!  Please leave a comment, I would love the feed back!  The holiday catalog goes live in 2 days on September 5th!  Be sure to order your items off your wish list!  All the products I used are listed below for an easy reference.
