Colour Creations Blog Hop week 10 Blushing Bride - Happiness Abounds


Hello stampers, it's week 10 of the Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team. We have been working our way through the Stampin' Up! colours in alphabetical order. This week we are featuring Blushing Bride. Blushing Bride is the lightest pink in our range and tonight I chose to pair it with silver and white. 

My card uses the Happiness Abounds Bundles and the Split Card Textures Dies.

I used the grid die from the Split Card Textures Dies to cut a mask from the Masking Paper, that I then gently stuck to the bottom left corner of the card front. I used a Blending Brush to apply Blushing Bride ink over the mask.

The flowers from the Happiness Abounds stamp set were heat embossed in silver embossing powder and coloured with a Water Painter and Blushing Bride ink.

I cut the largest foliage in the Forever Flourishing Dies from silver foil paper. I cut this into smaller pieces to spread between the flowers. The other foliage die from the Forever Flourishing Dies was cut twice from the Vellum Layering Designs. 

The greeting is from the Happiness Abounds stamp set and has been embossed in silver embossing powder. This card turned out exactly as I imagined, very soft and subtle.

Now it time for the next hop in our blog hop which belongs to Cathy Proctor. Cathy is also the wonderful host for our Colour Creations Blog Hops. If you encounter any issues with our hops head to Cathy's blog for a complete list of tonight's participants.

Next week we'll be back with Cajun Craze.
