Colour Creations Blog Hop week 5 - Summer Splash Racing By


Hello stampers, it's time for week 5 of the Colour Creation Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team. Every week we have been featuring one of the beautiful Stampin' Up! colours in alphabetical order starting with the 2024-2026 In Colours. This week it's time to feature Summer Splash.

Today's card is a variation of a pull card that we saw demonstrated at the latest Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Event.
I used the Racing By stamp set for the racing car image.

The race car outline is stamped in Memento Black Ink and the solid image is Summer Splash and the star is Real Red.

There is a slit in the front of the card that allows the center tab to be pulled out, making the race car move.

The card base is Summer Splash and a center panel in Smoky Slate. The Smoky Slate piece has been embossed with the Metal Plate Embossing Folder.

I'm very pleased with how this card turned out, the little race car is so cute. I have a couple of other cards I have made with this set that I will share with you shortly.

Now it's time to see what me stamping friend Kathryn Ruddick has to share with us.

If you encounter any issues with the links in our blog hop please head to Cathy's blog as she is the wonderful host of our Colour Creations Blog Hops and has a complete list of tonight's participants.

Thanks for visiting,
