WELCOME TO THE COLOR COMBO HOP

WELCOME to another CSS DT blog hop.  If you've come from our fantastic blog hop organizer Carolina Buchting's Blog then you're in the right place, if not, then you'll want to go to the beginning and take the complete hop to see all the inspiration this talented group of ladies has created.   This hop is a color combo hop and here are the instructions:  


Create a card or project using the following color combo:

  • White or Ivory
  • Brown
  • Light Blue (Little Boy Blue, Ocean Mist, or Turquoise Sea)
  • Yellow (Lemon Drop, Sweet Corn, or Wild Dandelion)

I made 2 cards for this hop and here is my first one:


For this card I cut narrow strips of Basic Grey "Jovial" dp and layered them on GKD PL Dandelion CS.  Although the colors don't appear to be very vibrant here, they set up nicely against the GKD PL Sand CS I used for the base of this card.  The stamped sentiment is from the GKD "Lovely Labels" by Nina Brackett.  The flames were hand cut and then "lit" with Stickles.  The "glow" around them came by sponging Distress Ink "Antique Linen" on them before putting on the Stickles.  

Here is my second  card:


For this card I chose GKD PL "Turquoise Sea", "Wild Dandelion" and "Chocolate Kiss".  I used the snowflakes Cuttlebug EF on the middle layer and then sanded it lightly before rubbing some "Arctic Blue"  Ice Stickles on it for an iridescent effect on the flakes.  For the wood effect I used a Tim Holtz EF.  The mittens are stamped from the GKD set, "Warm and Wonderful" by Rupa Shevde and colored with Copic markers. 

I didn't have a lot of time to create cards this week, but I hope you like these and I hope they give you some inspiration to join in and create your own cards with this color combo.  If you do, post them on the thread or in the gallery so we call can see them.  

Thanks for stopping by, now hop on over to the very talented Giovana Smith and see the fantastic creation she has for you there.
